Booting into Emergency Modus

Starting my computer, it runs into Emergency Modus. journalctl -xb shows 2.200 lines, few that might be important:

Kernel command line: .Boot image ...5.15.-x86 ...
Unknown command line parameters: "text noplymouth BOOT_IMAGE=//boot/vmlinuz-5.15..." will be passed to user space
PCI INT A not connected
fsck failed with exit status 4
... dependency failed for /home

What shall I do?

Please post the output of:

grep -i GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX /etc/default/grub

Lot of text, hopefully I covered the important part:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX DEFAULT="text apparmor=1 security=apparmor resume=UUID=00000000-999-XXX udev.log_priority=3 noplymouth acpibacklight=none"

You have a typo.

Should be:

noplymouth acpibacklight=none

Sorry, my fault. Corrected above …

Did you copy and paste the output? Was the typo in the file or did you type the output manually?

Either way, why are you using text and noplymouth?

I typed the output manually. This machine has no internet actually, as it did not boot.

Either way, why are you using text and noplymouth?

No idea, did not modify this for about a year or more …

Can you access a TTY? If so, remove text and noplymouth from /etc/default/grub. run sudo update-grub and reboot. One or both of those entries seem to be causing the issue.

If not, boot from a Manjaro ISO and chroot in to your system and do it from there.

How to access a TTY? Actually I have root access …
Im running nano /etc/defaullt/grub right now

What does that mean, exactly? :thinking:

I’m in console and did

# cd etc/default
# nano grub

saved the file “grub” after removing “text” and “noplymouth” and did
# sudo update grub
This produced few lines, the last one
/usr/bin/grub-probe: Warning: Unknown device type nvme0n1
Shall I try to reboot?

That’s normal and can be ignored.

Only one way to find out if the changes made any difference. :wink:

Done, but as far as I can see, the same picture:

Dependency failed for /home
Dependency failed for /home/nn/VirtualBoxVMs
Dependency failed for Local File System

Little bits and pieces of the log isn’t going to help us help you. Please see:

Is that // also a typo ?

Welcome to Manjaro! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

  1. Please read the information behind this link. It will help you to post necessary information. [HowTo] Provide System Information
  2. Please press the three dots below your post and then press the :pencil2:
  • If you give us information about your system, we can see what we’re talking about and make better suggestions.
  • You can do this by using inxi in a terminal or in console.
inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host --width
  • Personally identifiable information such as serial numbers and MAC addresses are filtered out by this command
  • Presenting the information in this way allows everyone to be familiar with the format and quickly find the items they need without missing anything.
  1. Copy the output from inxi (including the command) and paste it into your post.
  • To make it more readable, add 3 backticks ``` on an extra line before and after the pasted text.
    (Wisdom lies in reading :wink: )

I can run
journalctl --boot=-1 --priority=3 --catalog --no-pager
this shows issues for four device(s) /dev/disk/by-uuid… If there is a way to save this output (almost full screen) I will upload it here.

My Data-Device is /mnt/Daten. I can cd this and it shows all the files. Also I see the file f.e. in /var, /opt, /etc. Then I did

# cd /home
# ls

and it is empty.
Sorry, I’m dead for today and will follow up tomorrow …

Did you change /etc/fstab ?

No, but I double checked it now:

# cd /etc
# ls fstabb -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2854 05. May 2021 fstab

What can I do? I have a recent rsync backup for /home on an external USB-HDD; actuallly looks like this:

# cd /home
# ls -laR
total 12
drwr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 7. Nov. 2020
drwr-xr-x 18 root root 4096 3. Nov. 10:27

Is it worth to copy it back? If so, how can I get the drive connected to tje system in emergencý mode?
I also have a timeshift backup:

# sudo timeshift --restore
7 > 2022-12-28 18-00-01 D

restore the timeshift …
or boot into manjaro usb, chroot, and compare uuids in
cat /etc/fstab
the ones in fstab should match the ones in blkid

This part first:
I booted the System > EmergencyMode > Enter password
So I’m logged in as root in /. I can run cat /etc/fstab and blkid, the outputs look similar with differences: blkid sows timeshift, fstab does not. But I found all UUIDs from fstab in blkid.
Would it be possible, to copy that output to show it here?
