I can not run Debian

Postby linuxquest » 2017-08-04 15:38

I wanted to install Debian 9. After the installation when trying to start, the system displays a field for entering the password to decrypt the drive.
Enter the password and shows "Failed to connect to lvmetad Falliing back to device scaning" what can I do to run Debian?
Perhaps the fault of the BIOS settings?

I get that error message with functional encrypted drives. To my knowledge it's benign and does not prevent you from using the drive. If there's no other error message (which I doubt), only reason I can think of is wrong password. If possible, provide other error messages present during boot. And provide accurate errors messages.

Also, have you tried anything else than asking this in forums? Have you tried your password in US keyboard layout? For some weird reason I've had problems in the past with fresh install not having the keyboard layout I set during install. Worth a shot. Have you tried reinstall?

Yes, there does indeed appear to be a problem; I read your post and then looked around and came across: lists.debian.org/debian-amd64/2017/05/msg00020.html, which makes interesting reading.
What computer is it? Have you run another linux system, like Debian 8, on it before?
Are you able to select the single user mode in the grub menu and login from there?

Could you elaborate a little? What computer hardware? Which version of Debian? What method did you use to attempt the installation? What exactly do you mean when you say "... it does not work on this computer."?
