Emergency mode after editing fstab

Manjaro boots into Emergency mode after editing fstab to mount drives.

Here is my fstab

# /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).
#
# <file system>             <mount point>  <type>  <options>  <dump>  <pass>

UUID=a6d7961b-52de-4738-b12e-a3ef209f61c5 /mnt/ENTERTAINMENT	ext4	defaults 0 0	nofail

I searched these forums and I found a piece of advice to add nofail but this didnt fix it for me.

I found another possible solution, to try and mount the drives via systemd. So I tried that.

I created 3 files in /etc/systemd/system that follow this pattern

mnt-DOCUMENTS.mount
mnt-GAMING.mount
mnt-ENTERTAINMENT.mount

The contents of each of those files looks like this

[Unit]
Description=Mount DOCUMENTS

[Mount]
What=/dev/disk/by-uuid/19263c53-23f2-49ad-99eb-d57e1269cc6b
Where=/mnt/DOCUMENTS
Type=ext4
Options=defaults,rw,noatime
#TimeoutSec=seconds

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Obviously content is adjusted for each UUID and mount point.

I still have the same problem. Manjaro boots to Emergency mode which is non-interactive. I can only boot into the system via a Timeshift snapshot.

here is my inxi

the “nofail” at the end of each line does not belong there, it belongs after “defaults”, with a comma in between since it is an option …

The entries are wrong. The nofail is a mount option and should be listed with the other mount options, like so… :point_down:

UUID=some-string   /mnt/some-place  ext4  defaults,nofail   0   0

more often than not, i get ‘emergency mode’ related problems if i try to add a drive to fstab but it’s not connected when trying to boot. usually there’s no problem if I just boot with a live USB and go to the broken FSTAB and use sudo nano to just comment out any entry that might be in question, and manually mount the drives once I’m back in, then of course, use lsbk to find the relevant uuid’s and just write entries in the most common and basic way. It’s not always obvious why the emergency mode boots happen, but now that I am more aware of fstab stuff, I’ve been able to easily fix quite a few mishaps relating to this kind of thing. just yesterday i got this error by trying to add a sd card to fstab, which is entirely the wrong thing to do. instead there’s a convenient app in KDE that lets you specify what drives you want to automount.

Thank you for that. I have ammended my fstab but it didnt solve the issue. Im still booting to emergency mode. And now I cant boot into the last snapshot either.

Another odd thing is My Manajro Root partition is invisible. it doesnt show up in Dolphin and I cant access it (graphically at least) from my Tumbleweed install. So I cant get in and comment out the problematic fstab entries.

Also why didnt the systemd mount work either?

Im aware of the KDE tool I used to use it but it caused some minor issues as I assume the drives where mounted later than with fstab.

As these are important drives that have some symlinking going on I’d like them mounted with the system. If possible.

Unfortunately Manajro wont let me in at all now not even with the last snapshot. I could use an older one but as this system is only 2 days old a lot was configured and stuff was installed So I dont want to go back too far as I might as well just re-install.

That should tell you there’s something wrong with your root filesystem. I strongly suspect that your root subvolume (/@) has been deleted. But if that is the case, then only you would know what you’ve done to make that happen.

Because the mountpoint /mnt/DOCUMENTS no longer exists. It was a directory in the deleted /@ subvolume. :man_shrugging:

How did a subvol get deleted?

I am currently reinstalling Manjaro. Its still installing packages and I don’t have a root directory here either. At least not a visible one. Its a fresh install as of 5 mins ago.

Usually this is the result of a bad shortcut in the biological unit between the keyboard and the chair. :stuck_out_tongue:

The root subvolume /@ is created in the top-level volume of the btrfs filesystem, and unless you explicitly mount this top level somewhere, you’ll never get to see it.

By the way, that’s also how you deleted it. You must have mounted the top-level volume somewhere and been messing around within that. There is no other explanation.

Ive checked its not deleted. Yet the root drive is still not visible.

sudo btrfs subvolume list /

Shows the following

ID 256 gen 230 top level 5 path @
ID 257 gen 230 top level 5 path @cache
ID 258 gen 230 top level 5 path @log
ID 259 gen 36 top level 5 path timeshift-btrfs/snapshots/2024-05-18_00-04-10/@
ID 260 gen 40 top level 5 path timeshift-btrfs/snapshots/2024-05-18_00-05-02/@

I know I’m somewhat of a noob but managing to delete a subvolume would require some Terminal skills. I don’t use the terminal unless I have to.

That is your root subvolume. So it’s there.

Whatever causes you to boot into emergency mode, we won’t know unless you give us the exact error message. There always is one.

As Ive just been re-installing Manjaro I havnt yet tried editing fstab. Im still setting things up and its nightime here. So will get back at it tomorrow.

Thank you for some of the pointers so far.

I’m curious why the enthusiasm for editing fstab…

For years, I’ve opted for the safer option - install gnome-disks and use that to set it up… it’s safe and it won’t brick your machine if you enter a typo.

It takes me less than a minute to set up my mounts.

KDE has a built in tool that mounts disks. So I’m guessing its functionally the same as Gnome Disks which I havn’t used.
As with many things KDE at the moment its buggy and isn’t showing any of my drives. Im assuming this is because everything else about KDE 6 is buggy for me. As it used to show my disks.

I have a bunch of widgets set up to show my drive info. They don’t show drive info mounted via the built in KDE tool as, presumably it mounts the drives with a slight delay.
I already have a lot of configs set up to the mount point that I mounted in fstab.

None of these things are insurmountable. But you are supposed to be able to mount via fstab. So it would still irritate me knowing that a function that should work doesnt.

Anyway, I figured out how to mount my drives via systemd mount. Which, while its a little more complicated to set up, it is more controllable and also safe as if the mount fails it doesn’t stop your OS from booting.

It also has some really cool functionality such as mounting drives on demand. So they are only mounted once something tries to access them.

There is a guide on these forums for mounting via systemd and the same guide is also on Endeavours forums.

Yes, some can do that. Others can’t.

When making changes to fstab you should always

  • Make only minor changes
  • Have a backup of the old fstab (fstab.old)
  • Have a bootable media on hand to undo everything
  • But especially know the documentation for fstab

:footprints:

It didn’t because the syntax wasn’t right.
And that will be … insurmountable - unless it is corrected.

Well I have things mounted via systemd mount which is working very well. And mistakes don’t break stuff. So thats cool.

a misconfigured /etc/fstab will still ruin your day :wink:

Any error in fstab is fatal - but you can just delete it, reboot and use gnome-disks instead :wink:
