I think my network just never starts - how can I login to the console

Hi -

Coming from 6.1.9.  Loaded 6.2.RC3.  I'd posted in another thread that it hangs on cpuload started, but upon reverting to 6.1.9, the console is "stuck" at the same place with a fully functional array (from all array/docker/app perspectives) so I don't think that's a valid diagnosis.  Rather, I think my network just never starts.  Ignorant question - how can I login to the console to find out what's going on? There's no prompt?  Or, is the fact that I have no prompt indicative of some other issue that needs to be resolved?

Try booting into safe mode (option when you boot up) and see what difference that makes.

 

Beyond that, it could be a buggered flash drive.  You could try popping it into a windows machine and running the disk checks against it.  Or set up a new flash drive as a trial and see if that'll boot up.

I'm able to type, i.e. characters show up, but it doesn't do anything.  I'd expect to be able to ctl-C a few times and get a prompt, never happens.

 

I tried safe mode with RC3 and got the same thing - i.e., no network, no prompt. 

I haven't tried safe mode with 6.1.9 - it's a PITA to get a monitor on it but I'll give it a whirl.  Will also try checking the flash drive.

 

Stay tuned - and thanks for forking this off appropriately.

After the cpuload message is shown, it is supposed to [1] install packages (see folder /extra on your flash), [2] install plugins (see folder /config/plugins on your flash) and [3] execute the go file (see /config/go on your flash device).

 

Sounds like it is hanging in one of these. Check your flash device for corruption (e.g. use Windows) or maybe delete what isn't required.

No difference with safe mode... i.e., it boots and seems to run, but no console activity after cpuload started.

 

no flash drive corruption reported by windows disk check.

 

There is a ton of stuff in packages & plugins. A literal crapload. Can these all just be cleared out? I don't know where they all came from, I've been using this flash drive since 4.6 or so - I'm thinking a lot if this is legacy that is no longer used? My array is fairly stock - all the apps I know that I run are at the docker level. Any plugins are utility-type (nerdpack, stats, etc)

 

No Extra File

 

Plugins - I recognize most of these:

Go File - I remember adding that beep, and now that you mention it, I haven't heard that wobble tone in quite some time.  This is not a new problem...

root@BEAST:/boot/config# cat go
#!/bin/bash
# Start the Management Utility
/usr/local/sbin/emhttp -p 81
#/boot/unmenu/uu

cd /boot/packages && find . -name '*.auto_install' -type f -print | sort | xargs -n1 sh -c
beep -f 700 ; beep -f 500 ; beep -f 700 ; beep -f 500

 

Here's /boot/packages - most of these look old and foreign.

Much of what you have in packages (the .autoinstall files) are available within the NerdPack plugin or better installed via a plugin (ie: powerdown)  or natively included in unRaid nowadays  Go with what bonienl says and wipe the whole thing and revert to a nearly stock go and remove this line:

 

cd /boot/packages && find . -name '*.auto_install' -type f -print | sort | xargs -n1 sh -c

Still having no luck.. Packages and Plugins have been emptied - blank directories now.  config/go only has the emhttp.  Even removed the -p 81 to run on default port.  Ready to wipe my flash and start completely from scratch - how do I make sure my license and configuration are preserved?

Ok - I'm in better shape now.  I re-copied the 6.1.9 binaries over and re-ran make-bootable (because the first time I got a weird error trying to boot) and now I have a successful prompt after booting.  Now I'm going to try the 6.2 update again - with no plugins - and will see what happens.  Thanks for your assistance!!
