So I haven’t turned on my laptop in 1 month. As expected, this would bring problems, as I always get them when I don’t update for a long time.
After finishing the 247 updates I had I rebooted. The thing is I get stuck on the blue manjaro login with the blue bar traveling across the screen for all eternity.
I’ve tried multiple kernels and none of them worked, and if any of you asks me for the output of fdisk -1 please do explain how to get it because unfortunately I have no idea since I can’t boot and use the terminal.
Hit an arrow key during Plymouth (that’s the screen with the logo) to see what is going on in the console and you will hopefully see the errors. It’s also a possibility that Plymouth itself is the problem…
I will not be able to help you with anything else, but about not being able to boot, there are two options you have:
1 - less complicated - log into shell console - tty:
Then at the promp enter user name and password and you can then run Inxi and all the commands to get the logs. At this system update, some experienced dificulty logging to tty but succeed by trying multiple time. You don’t have to use F2, you can also try F3 or F4 or F5 or F6. F7 would return you bac to working GUI but yours is not working so skip this one, just info for you.
OK, say you just can’t log into tty even after multiple tries. In this case, there is another option you have, a little bit more complicated but you need to learn it anyway - to chroot into your system by using live Manjaro media and boot from it:
