so recently I’ve built an 4.1 ISO (23rd March master branch) and succesfully installed on my Zenbook Dual Pro. It mostly works, but I’ve noticed a few issues (perhaps bugs?), that raised an eyebrow.
I’ve had to add to grub
nouveau.modeset=0 rd.blacklist.drivers=nouveau as otherwise the LUKS passphrase screen was flickering. Other than that it’s just a standard startup procedure.
So, after I enter a valid LUKS password, the progress bar is progressing until 100% (a bit faster than on my previous laptop, but more or less in expected timeframe). Once it reaches 100%, the laptop reboots - I see Asus splash screen, then I’m back to LUKS passphrase screen again.
So I suspect there may be some kernel panic happening or maybe some bug (though sometimes it just works the first time).
Ofcourse, glitches are expected, there is a reason it’s not a stable release yet, and it’s not critical (it just doubles the startup time), but I’d like to try and get to the bottom of whats happening - however I just don’t know where to start looking.
Anyone experienced something similar? I’ve tried to google past issues, but didn’t find anything. Is there any log I could inspect to understand why it reboots?
