- Red Hat Enterprise Linux
I have been using RHEL 8 for a while on my laptop for developing. Up until yesterday this was working without issue.
Yesterday however I carried out the update to 8.2 using Yum. This on the face of it appeared to work fine until I rebooted. After rebooting I got stuck on the initial Red Hat screen. Pressing escape showed that the boot process got stuck with the message:
A start job is running for monitoring of LVM2
I attempted to boot using the 8.1 kernel but this failed for the same reason.
I have also completely wiped the drive and installed a fresh copy of 8.2. Installation worked fine however when the system attempts to boot I end up with the same issue as above.
I have scouted about but unable to find resolution for the issue. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing the issue.
FYI Red Hat is dual booted with Windows 10. Looking at the update history it does not appear that any Windows updates have occured between the times RHEL was known to work and when it stopped. Everything seems to point to it being related to 8.2 (although I may try installing 8.1 again to prove the case)
