systemd-readahead[571] failed to read event: file too large

Post by tballantyne » 2014/10/16 23:32:13

Hi,

Getting this error upon boot -

systemd-readahead[571] failed to read event: file too large
On Centos 7 - (3.10.0-123.8.1el7x86_64)

Last set of changes made to install were -

yum update
yum install xorg-x11-server-Xorg xorg-x11-drv-evdev mesa-dri-drivers i3 i3status
systemctl set-default graphical.target

After locking up upon restart, booted using recovery CD and removed the symlink to the graphical.target, put it back to multi-user.target:

rm '/etc/systemd/system/default.target'
ln -s '/usr/lib/systemd/system/multi-user.target' '/etc/systemd/system/default.target'

Same issue.

Initial Google searches indicate this was flagged as a bug and repaired in later kernel versions (kernel-3.14.2-200.fc20) -
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=696821

Was not getting this upon initial install and boot of the system. Added kvm-qemu, added the xorg and i3.

Anything I can do to repair or update the system. Any diagnostics I can provide to help troubleshoot?

Thanks

CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.

Thanks for the link. No nvidia drivers loaded.

Did a clean reinstall and it boots back up. Still throws the error upon bootup, but makes it to the login prompt now.
