Dependency failed for /home

Hi there,

i just installed Manjaro recently and im totally new to the Linux-World. So i dont have any clue how to solve my problem and im not firm in using linux commands over the console…so im thankfull for any help :slight_smile:

I used KUP the Backup-Tool from KDE to save my home Folder to an external drive as backup when suddenly i got errors that i only have reading rights for everything. I restarted the pc only to get the following error

[FAILED] Failed to start File System Check on /dev/disk/by-uuid…
[DEPEND] Dependency failed for /home
[DEPEND] Dependency failed for Local File Systems.
You are in emergency mode…

I dont know what whent there wrong, and i also dont have a clue how to fix this without destroying the data in my home folder
My home folder is on a second hdd in my pc with a ext4-partition. I started Manjaro with a bootable usb, the data is still there…

Any ideas what i could do?

thanks in advance


Hello @Dark574 :wink:

Check this:

  1. lsblk -f
  2. cat /etc/fstab

The UUID has been changed. You need to update the UUID from lsblk in the file fstab.

this is the output of the commands

[manjaro@manjaro ~]$ lsblk -f
loop0 squash 4.0 0 100% /run/miso/
loop1 squash 4.0 0 100% /run/miso/
loop2 squash 4.0 0 100% /run/miso/

[manjaro@manjaro ~]$ cat /etc/fstab

/etc/fstab: static file system information

/dev/mapper/root-image / auto defaults 0 0
[manjaro@manjaro ~]$

the fstab info above seems not correct, when i look into the file directly it looks as follows

/etc/fstab: static file system information.

Use ‘blkid’ to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may

be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if

disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

UUID=a952b4e7-4a5c-42f8-afac-c01f06a064c1 / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1
UUID=9d8aaa11-0138-4dc1-b81a-efd8d99370a8 swap swap defaults,noatime 0 0
UUID=0f84665f-823b-475b-bcaf-f3b86fcd930c /home ext4 defaults,noatime 0 2
tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,noatime,mode=1777 0 0

it looks ok there, home is correctly included…any other ideas?

i use fsck onto the hard drive, maybe that brings something useful up

ok ive got it fixed.

fsck -f -y on the home partition solved the problem, there have been corrupted inodes
