boot hangs can't access system



  • I added the i915 drives to loader.conf.local and now my system hangs so i can't get in to prevent it from loading.

    Have tried booting to live cd shell and mount but it doesn't work.
    geom disk list = ada0

    mount: /dev/ada0: Invalid argument
    mount: -t /dev/ada0 /tmp/tst : Invalid argument
    mount: -t ups /dev/ada0 /tmp/tst : Invalid argument
    mount: -t UPS /dev/ada0 /tmp/tst : operation not supported by device
    mount: -t zfs /dev/ada0 /tmp/tst : Invalid argument
    mount: -t ZFS /dev/ada0 /tmp/tst : operation not supported by device

    how can i prevent loader.conf.local from loading or get access to edit out the driver?

    would be helpful if there was some kind of rescue guide...

    Are you running ZFS?

    Otherwise boot to single user mode then run:
    mount -a -t ufs
    You might have to fsck it first.

    Then edit loader.conf.local.

  • @stephenw10 i used ufs / gpt settings, but booting to either single or multi seems to load loader.conf.local

    Boot your pfSense installation CD or USB thumb, hit 2 Single User mode
    Then
    mount -a -t ufs /dev/da0s1 /tmp

    You might be able to prevent it loading by running at the loader prompt:
    set hint.i915kms.0.disabled=1
    boot

    Assuming you're talking about the graphics driver.
