Hi, leodd. It looks like you have a fault loading the nouveau driver. My advice would be to enter an emergency boot (advanced options / recovery mode) and blacklist the nouveau module. You could then install the proprietary nvidia drivers, assuming that is the graphics card you have installed.

To blacklist the nouveau module, enter a root console from recovery, then:

Code: Select all
# cd /etc/modprobe.d
# nano blacklist-nouveau
[from nano editor enter the following]
blacklist nouveau
[CTL-X to exit and save file then enter the following commands]
# update-initramfs -u
# reboot

I have dm-crypt on root, so recovery doesn't helps. It cant mount root automatically.

But kernel 4.18.0, 5.0.0-25 can boot in normal mode.

Kernel 5.0.0-31, 5.0.0-32 doesn't boot.

Blacklist nouveau doesn't help. I have no error after that, but still got booted to initramfs. I have nouveau errors while booting 4.18.0, 5.0.0-25 but it not affects me

At a guess I'd say that dm-crypto is not loaded in your Kernel 5.0 image (never used it so I don't know really). Just check it status, when you are booted into Kernel 4.18 do something like;

grep CONFIG_DM_CRYPT /boot/vmlinuz-5.0.0-31-generic (the kernel name could be slightly different here)

you should see output like; CONFIG_DM_CRYPT=m

If it is an 'm' that means it's a module. I would imagine if you want it on root it needs to be 'y' and then you need to recompile kernel.

$ sudo grep CONFIG_DM_CRYPT /boot/vmlinuz-5.0.0-32-generic
$ sudo grep CONFIG_DM_CRYPT /boot/vmlinuz-4.18.0-25-generic

Nothing in both cases

I think I'll switch back to Linux Mint. It looks more stable.

Also I don't like pkcon. APT is better
