Intel laptop, no discreet GPU
Updated Manjaro via VNC remote viewer and screen went black, screen connected directly to PC also black, no response.
Pressed reset button after a while when I thought it might be done (half hour). On boot, it says that it cannot start daemons and it goes straight to tty1 where I can log in with my account and password. But when I run any pacman or pamac commands nothing happens. No errors, just new line.
When I boot a live usb and unlock encrypted drive and chroot into it I get the same result.
How do I fix my installation?
Possibly the disk is full, damaged and it is in read-only mode?
It’s absolutely not full as I haven’t used it much. should be at least 80% free.
As for it being read only, I don’t know? How can I check?
I might actually just reinstall, now that I think about it.
What output should I expect?
It seems I have
rw-permissions on everything except
Well then check your journal:
journalctl --boot 0 --no-pager
Are you in rescue or emergency mode?
I don’t know. How do I check?
Well if you ask this then you didn’t see the prompt…
However if there is no journal for the current boot, then this a sign for me that it cannot write to disk.
