How do I fix these? Are these something to be concerned about?

If everything works normally, then I’d ignore those messages. Verbosity does not necessarily indicate an error. :wink:

Thanks. Fact is how do I know if everything is normal (unless the above errors are considered normal). Just wanted to confirm that :slight_smile:

Nevertheless, it sounds like there is nothing to be worried about just that plymouth stopped working after these errors started to surface.

Well, there’s a correlation but not a causality. :wink:

Plymouth uses another video memory buffer than the system console. Plymouth runs in graphical mode, while the messages you are seeing are from the main system console framebuffer, which runs in character mode. This buffer is not emptied after the boot process, but because your system switches to graphical mode, the buffer is no longer visible on the screen.

Then during shutdown, the graphical mode stops and the system switches back to the system console, which contains all of these messages. Some of them may constitute some kind of warning, some might be actual errors ─ although you would then be experiencing difficulties during usage ─ and yet others are just spurious verbosity.

You could suppress (most of) them by playing with the following line in /etc/default/grub:arrow_down:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet udev.log_priority=3"

The quiet parameter ─ if present; you may need to add it ─ already gets rid of most of the spurious stuff. The udev.log_priority parameter determines what information must be shown and what information is less important. You can find more information about that at the Arch wiki.

Be sure to run… :arrow_down:

sudo update-grub

… after modifying the file.


Edit: Concretely…

  • The watchdog message can be ignored;
  • The systemd-udevd message can also be ignored; and
  • The /oldroot/sys message is something that appears when people are using the proprietary Nvidia driver with ─ I believe ─ CUDA support.

So, nothing to worry about. :wink:

That helped a lot. Thanks again!
