I am running Manjaro 21.x KDE Plasma and I can no longer boot into it.
Some information, everytime I’ve put the PC in sleep mode and then waking it up, logging in there was a bug such that it couldn’t load to desktop fully, there was a progress bar which every time didn’t fill up fully. And everytime this happened I rebooted/turned off and on the PC again, which I suspect is the main reason for the following issues.
Everytime I prees enter it just repeats itself - reloading, starting and then again.
I am providing console output when I try to boot in.
Open the file
/etc/fstab with an editor and remove or comment out the line where is written the mountpoint
/mnt/hdd/f. The problem here is that it fails to mount the partition for what ever reason.
At this point I cannot boot into the OS, how should I proceed with editing /etc/fstab, is it possible at all?
Should be possible:
- Change to another TTY: CTRL + ALT + F3
- Login there on the basic login screen.
sudo nano /etc/fstab
- Change it there, save and reboot.
I try to change the TTY but I couldn’t - no output whatsoever.
@shllshckd Did you try to type the root password to login as root? Looks like you just skip it…
However, maybe you are more comfortable with live session: Boot a Manjaro ISO, run
manjaro-chroot -a on the terminal and change it there.
Boot up from the install medium in live mode. Then, open up a terminal window and type the following two commands…
sudo su - manjaro-chroot -a
If you have more than one GNU/Linux system installed, choose your Manjaro installation from the menu. Then, edit
/etc/fstab, like so…
When you’re done, save the file with Ctrl+O followed by Enter/Return, and exit the editor with Ctrl+X.
Thanks, used the USB stick with Manjaro and it’s all good now.
One problem still exists tho, when I wake the pc from sleep the progress bar never finishes/never lods fully. Should I make a separate post for that?
Yes, please. Better to deal with only one problem per thread, unless you have multiple problems that all have the same cause.
