Hi, I have a problem with my centos 6.9 VM. It has frozen on bootup, I have tried booting in interactive mode and disabling different services but to no avail.

Below is the boot screen of my VM;

Code: Select all

Welcome to CentOS 
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: line 155: /sbin/start_udev: No such file or directory

After this it hangs and doesn't go any further no matter how long I leave it.
For context, this machine runs ffmpeg which dumps files to a windows cifs share. I rebuilt the machine yesterday and the same thing has happened again today, it runs fine for around 12-16 hours.

Any help, thanks.

Ok, so to further on from this, I think it is something to do with the CIFS share I am mounting.

I get this error in the console;

Code: Select all

CIFS VFS: sends on sock stuck for 15 seconds
After that, it seems to stop the ffmpeg (still shows as running process, just doesn't save any to the mounted share. If I umount the share and remount it, it works again. Can anyone shed any light?

Try to add to your fstab:

//servershare /ShareMount cifs vers=3.0

I hope it helps.
