Could someone guide me through a quick check please?
Running openHABian and after the latest update my Raspberry is not booting anymore.
SD card is ok because I can access boot partition and rootfs with “Linux Reader” on my Windows machine.
Hardware is ok because another SD card with an older clone image boots without problems.
I assume that a boot file or firmware file is corrupt but I do not have further knowledge with Linux to continue finding the error.
I attached a monitor to my raspberry to see at least some results during bootup (using RPi headlessly).
Booting seems to be ok but the last error message is
failed to start FUSE filesystem for LXC
However bootup sequence ends with “openhab login:” prompt
On the other hand, I cannot connect via Putty from my Windows PC to Raspberry Pi.
Please, refrain from useless comments like some of the above. Yes, I do not have a good understanding of Linux.
Yes, I have a backup which is 1 month old but I try to avoid redoing all the changes since then.
you expect others to suggest “helpful” information. What you deem “helpful” is highly depending on your expectation level and your own level of skills and knowledge. The level of information you gave us in your first post was vague. You could have helped us helping you in following the guideline
Some answers, my own inculded, would have been different, had this information been given in your initial post.
However, your backup strategy obviously does not match your own expectation. Guess you will change that in the future.
I’m not an expert in booting Linux, although my PC uses Linux. But I know that the message
indicates an error with filesystem handling. To find the root cause an examination of the boot log messages is needed. And to fix it you need write access to the system, either by entering commands on the shell (you need monitor and keyboard attached to the RasPi for that) or by editing files on the SD card in another system. Which should not be a Windows system (don’t know whether there are even tools/drivers that can write to Linux file systems from Windows).
It is your decision if you want to follow the route down to accept suggestions from others and learn something or if you rather take the route to use your backup with adding your changes on top of that or even a newly built SD card.
This one I want to comment finally:
@Bruce_Osborne is one of the most active community members, helping a lot of others here since he became a member. Treating him like that might easily have the effect of others joining him in leaving you alone with your issues.
I changed the title because the problem that Fuse was not able to load within lxc was not the actual problem.
After investigating further I found out that the openHAB update process (which you can start from openhabian-config) CHANGED my NETWORK CONFIGURATION
In detail, it changed the eth0 section in the file
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth0 inet manual
“auto eth0” was completely deleted.
Not sure why this happened, but in case somebody else has to face this issue I am posting this so that he does not need to go through all the steps you can see above
However, if somebody gets the error message regarding Fuse failed to start in lxc, just do a firmware upgrade and the error message is gone.
