Hi, ALL,
This is a continuation of the old thread, which I thought was solved.

The problem I'm facing is that after successful boot-up the machine is stuck. The only thing I see on the screen is my hostname and blinking cursor. It does not go to the login prompt for credentials.

Here you can find the dmesg output. There 2 errors in it:

Code:

EXT3-fs (sda4): error: couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features (240)
EXT2-fs (sda4): error: couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features (244)


even though I added "rootfs=ext4" to the kernel line of grub2.

There is also a following error on the screen during boot up:

Code:

Bringing up interface wlan0
   Starting wpa_supplicant on wlan0
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant
nl80211: Could not re-add multicast membership for vendor events: -2 (No such file or directory)
    Starting wpa_cli on wlan0
    Backgrounding


When I boot into an interactive mode and start the processes one by one, I don't see this error. Moreover, if I go to the console from the interactive boot and try to run wpa_supplicant:

Code:

wpa_supplicant -Dnl80211 -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd


it started fine.

Those are only problems I see during the regular boot from the hard drive.

Does anybody have an idea why the machine can't complete the boot-up process and give the login prompt?

Thank you.

P.S.: Maybe it is a new policy to not to let people login until after all issues with the boot are fixed?

[EDIT]
Is there a place where I can place a picture for other people to see?

OK, more info:
Trying to boot up the machine using interactive mode I am able to boot up without any issues.

It looks like the net.wlan0 takes some time to associate with my AP, and therefore when it boots up normally it's not ready by the time the local starts.

Is there any way to set up the wait time until the association takes place, so that I am able to boot up normally?

Independently of this, I was still seeing the net.wlan0 error message I posted in the OP.

Thank you.

I can't really help on the wpa, as I am not the best on setting that up properly. One thing I can I can mention that can at least get rid of those

EXT2-fs (sda4): error: couldn't mount because of unsupported optional features (244)


In the kernel, there is the option for CONFIG_EXT4_USE_FOR_EXT23. This allows the ext4 driver handle the ext2/3 in-addition to the ext4 fs. Note, to get that option to show, you need to turn off
Code:
# CONFIG_EXT2_FS is not set
# CONFIG_EXT3_FS is not set

Maybe this is somehow related:

Code:

2015-06-08-udev-init-scripts-changes
  Title                     udev-init-scripts-29 important changes
  Author                    William Hubbs <williamh@gentoo.org>
  Posted                    2015-06-08
  Revision                  2

In udev-init-scripts-29 and newer, the udev service script has been
split into udev, udev-settle and udev-trigger.

This means the settings in /etc/conf.d/udev have also been migrated
to the appropriate /etc/conf.d files, so be careful when you update your
configuration settings.

udev and udev-trigger will be added to your sysinit runlevel, but not
udev-settle. udev-settle should not be added to a runlevel. Instead, if
a service needs this, it should add "need udev-settle" to its
dependencies.


Thank you.
