freebsd-upgrade 11.1 to 11.2 Fails to Boot 11.2 Kernel (no VB, no Nvidia)

Long-established box previously running 11.1-RELEASE-p11 on a ZFS mirrored pool. I've gone through the standard steps for upgrading a few times, including ZFS rollback/clone to pre-upgrade state with ZFS/beadm and always end up with the same result -- the 11.2 kernel freezes on boot, the 11.1 kernel loads and runs (though ugly in that the binaries were compiled against a different kernel ABI). It doesn't matter if I use the distro's kernel or a locally compiled one.

Edit: Similar behavior reported in post at https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/cant-ssh-after-upgrading-to-11-2.66617/post-393961

Neither VirtualBox nor Nvidia are involved.

The early stages of the boot loader function as expected. On the 11.2 kernel the hand-transcribed output looks like
Code:
/boot/kernel.vimage/kernel text=0x155faa0 data=0x14e1e8+0x4b5fc8 syms=[0x8+0x16d868+0x189448]
/boot/entropy size=0x100
/boot/kernel.vimage/zfs.ko size 0x381080 at 0x225c00
loading required module 'opensolaris'
/boot/kernel.vimage/opensolaris.ko size 0xa380 at 0x25de000
Booting...
-
and then freezes. No response to the "three-finger salute" with a USB keyboard.

Behavior is the same with the 11.2 distro's "stock" kernel.

Manually loading the stock kernel, opensolaris, and zfs from the boot loader prompt fails in the same way.

Using the 11.1 kernel boots without hesitation.

loader.conf:
Code:
zfs_load="YES"
Any suggestions on how to debug and/or resolve this?

I've now "installed" a "clean" version of 11.2-RELEASE on an empty beadm-compatible, zfs-generated file system by extracting base.txz, kernel.txz, and src.txz from the distro. I have the same kind of failure at boot. Changing to the new boot code doesn't seem to help either. /boot/loader.conf contains what a fresh install on a "virgin" VM shows:
Code:
kern.geom.label.disk_ident.enable="0"
kern.geom.label.gptid.enable="0"
zfs_load="YES"
Any suggestions before I go through the process of installing two new disks and starting from scratch with 11.2-RELEASE?

Tried to bootstrap your disks again? Often ZFS versions also get increased (check zpool status) and if that happens you should obviously upgrade your pool but more than often will need to do the same for the bootloader as well. As such: did you try that as well?

I'm not sure what you mean by "bootstrap", but would certainly be willing to try.

I have installed the bootloader from 11.2-RELEASE as outlined in the previous post.

The pool appears to be as current as 11.1-RELEASE-p11 permits and in good shape. I ran "scrub" again just now, "scrub repaired 0 in 0h19m with 0 errors on Sat Jul 7 14:29:49 2018"

Code:
jeff@js:~$ zpool upgrade
This system supports ZFS pool feature flags.

All pools are formatted using feature flags.

Every feature flags pool has all supported features enabled.

jeff@js:~$ zpool status
  pool: zroot
state: ONLINE
  scan: scrub repaired 0 in 0h13m with 0 errors on Mon Aug  7 16:08:19 2017
config:

    NAME        STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM
    zroot       ONLINE       0     0     0
      mirror-0  ONLINE       0     0     0
        ada0p3  ONLINE       0     0     0
        ada1p3  ONLINE       0     0     0

errors: No known data errors
In the grand scheme of things, I'd prefer to do the "from-scratch" rebuild when 12.0-RELEASE comes out, which looks like November right now. Even if "stuck" on 11.1-RELEASE, from what I read, there will be three-months' support after 12.0-RELEASE

Hello!

I'm seeing the exact same problem. I upgraded from 11.1-p11 to 11.2 last night and now the system hangs on boot at the same spot.

I have the same processor (Celeron J1900).

I noticed that this release went from clang-4 to 6 -- has anything changed with 11.2 perhaps with default kernel compilation flags? I'm wondering if the boot is trapping on an unsupported instruction...? (edit: pretty sure this isn't it now)

I'm getting the same problem on my desktop system after the 11.1-p1 to 11.2 upgrade.


Code:
FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p1 FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p1 #0: Wed Aug  9 11:55:48 UTC 2017     root@amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

I created a new minimal 11.2 system, with a root pool called 'zsystem' and two identical boot environments (env1,env2).

The 11.1 system has a root pool 'zroot'. I took a backup of the pool.

Booted off 11.2-env1:

Code:
zpool import zroot
zpool list
internal error: failed to initialize  ZFS library
The 11.2-env1 system boots ok to the point where it tries to mount local file systems, gets the ZFS library error and everything else fails.
The 11.2-env2 system boots ok.

The 11.1 system still boots ok.

Same problem here. No ZFS at all, just straight up BSD labels (default layout on a 1TB drive).

I have tested it with boot media, and it's definitely something to do with the stock bootloader and/or kernel - USB with 11.1 memstick image boots fine, 11.2 freezes in the same exact way. Also tried it with FreeBSD-12.0-CURRENT-amd64-20180709-r336134-mini-memstick.img - same thing.

Any suggestions on what kind of diagnostics I could capture to help debug this?

I'm experiencing this problem, but oddly have two nearly identical boxes; with one booting 11.2 after upgrade, while the other does not. I have other Celeron/Atom computers that I upgraded with no problems as well. Going through those boxes I noticed "VT: init without driver" in the logs, which I didn't see on other servers (xeon cpu etc). With the monitor unplugged, the machine could then boot 11.2. I've sent in a bug report on that thread.

Update: if I plug in the monitor after the machine has booted, it's still stuck at the same spot with "Booting", however everything is fine via ssh.

Update 2: it looks like these machines are missing virtual terminal devices like /dev/ttyv# . I'm not sure if this is the cause, or an effect of the problem. I haven't seen confirmation that this problem is related to what others are seeing, so I may have a different issue entirely, or perhaps it was something I did to my installs.

I don't know, people. I've upgraded to 11.2 from 11.1-something, and it boots fine. But I'm using GRUB to boot it (ZFS), also no UEFI, so maybe the problem is in the updated version of the FreeBSD loader you all are using?
Have you tried using BIOS-compatible version?

yeah, here too J1900 board, update to 11.2, no boot anymore :-(

What to do now? Revoke the update? Build an own kernel (gosh, this is a slooow machine, nobody wants this…).

I'm using FBsd since 4.x now, such Things never happened before, SNIFF...

One other thing. If you do the above, and then kldload drm_next_kmod (which you probably wanted to do on the affected systems once you have 11.2 - indeed, I upgraded to 11.2 largely for that alone), you'll get a blank screen. However, you can still type... and if you start X immediately after, it'll run using DRM. I guess you could set it up to load the module at startup, and then use some login manager, if you don't care about console at all.

Hi,

I have a ASRock Q1900-ITX and I can confirm that with kern.vty="sc" I could upgrade to 11.2-RELEASE without issues.

it worked for me.

Thanks

/boot/loader.conf:kern.vty="sc"

also worked for me on an Intel NUC with Celeron N3050 processor under 11.2.

After trying a few things, I've been able to work around this by setting kern.vty=sc in /boot/loader.conf
Holy smokes! Thank you! This has been vexxing me for a while and for whatever reason I only just found this thread. I had an issue with 11.1 -> 11.2 and thought it was a zfsroot bug I read in the errata - which I read incorrectly. I had the same issue going 11.1 to 12.0-current and nearly threw my computer out the window.
Thank you again for this fix.
Cheers!

A J1900 Celeron box which I switched from vt to sc works well but I always access it remotely. Recently I encountered this again when attempting a 12.0-RELEASE install from a memstick to a N3150 Celeron. There is another solution that avoids the flickering issue and allows the use of vt.

Per https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=229235, setting 'hw.vga.acpi_ignore_no_vga=1' in /boot/loader.conf resolved the issue for the ASRock N3150. I'll try the same on the J1900 soon.

p.s. edit
Can confirm this works on a Gigabyte J1900 running 11.2-RELEASE too. The boot messages aren't displayed after the driver is loaded as on the N3150, but after a delay the login prompt comes up and the vt console works normally.

This has become a bigger buggabo for me than I had initially figured.
Along with being my backup/file server, I'd like to run X locally on it and use the system as a Kodi box. However, with that setting, X doesn't want to run. :rude: X runs fine over VNC, but not locally.
It's an ASRock something or other... I can't find the manual for it. It wasn't an expensive motherboard. I'm not surprised it's been a problem child.

The system does also have some 1st gen WD Red drives, which have not for the life of them, been able to maintain a GPT block. I can rebuild it easily enough, but it happens not just regularly, but often & a lot. I replaced one of the drives with a new WD Red and it's been fine. If I can keep the drives online, the system is a splendid little home server. I may just have to not run Kodi on it.
