CentOS 8 Comments

Everyone,

I have two desktop units with : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz that do not allow the login screen to appear after the update of :
kernel-3.10.0-693.5.2.el7.x86_64 and kernel-3.10.0-693.2.2.el7.x86_64

Both of these units worked properly with kernel.x86_64 3.10.0-514.26.2.el7

I am not sufficiently familiar with grub to know if the problem is related to grub or related to the kernel. I have been able to boot the machines by the use of kernel.x86_64 3.10.0-514.26.2.el7.

When using kernel-3.10.0-693 the login screen is blank and the login prompt is missing, however each machine is accessible via the terminal interface, or remotely with ssh.

Does anyone have any ideas ?

Greg

  • What is your video card.

    Johnny,

    Thanks for your help!!!

    On each of these units I am using the video from the mother board which is :

    Base Board Information
            Manufacturer: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
            Product Name: B150M-A/M.2
            Version: Rev X.0x
            Serial Number: 160983250602009
            Asset Tag: Default string
            Features:
                    Board is a hosting board
                    Board is replaceable
            Location In Chassis: Default string
            Chassis Handle: 0x0003
            Type: Motherboard
            Contained Object Handles: 0

    I was hoping that I did not need to put a video card in these units, but this would certainly be a solution.

  • what CPU are you using?  any onboard video with the B150 chipset is coming from the CPU itself.

    John,

    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, I thought I posted that earlier, but it is :

    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz

  • OK .. if you run this as root, it will tell you what the actual video card is what what driver and/or kernel module is in use:

    for card in $(lspci | grep ‘ VGA ‘ | cut -d” ” -f 1); do \
    lspci -v -s $card; done

    Here is an example output for my workstation:
