Yo i am brand new to Linux i had installed Manjaro at the beginning of the year. today I turn on my laptop and it gave me this error with out letting me enter my password. Now im new so i panicked, i booted up Tails from a usb and entered the disk manager and found the Manajor partition on my hard-drive i deleted it thinking it would help me get passed this screen but it did not. what do i do now? please thanks currently using Kali to boot up and use Firefox.
I cant seem to upload an image its not allowing me, but the screen says
"error no such cryptodisk found, perhaps a needed disk or cryptodisk module is not loaded
error : disk cryptouuid/4abd5f3209744018b702411b6d0794a0’ not found.
Entering rescue mode…
thats the message i get when i boot up my computer id normally be able to type my encypted password but i cant. I still have windows installed on my harddrive i want to be able to boot to it how can i do that. damn if some one here can help me please to fix this that be awesome thanks.
I have tried nothing because this just happened a week ago or two. im new to linux having all this code is helpful but i dont know what to do with it. where do i start? what the first step to gettiing my laptop back to work. i straight up just need help getting passed that message after a reboot it wont allow me to enter my password to continue so idk what to do. how do i go about checking /boot/grub.cfg ?
And you decided to use luks encryption? It is easy to install it that way with Manjaro, but look, you need to get familiar with that. Such major changes can occur from time to time, and you need to be tech-savvy enough to follow such instructions at least.
Might sound unhelpful, but it is time to understand the basic configurations of your systems. You would need to spend time and read documentations.
While Manjaro is a good entry point to Linux and an Arch-based Distro, it is not a handholding distro, which does everything for you.
Since you applied the update already, you would need to boot a Manjaro Live Session and chroot into the system. Then adjust the text file by manually editing it.
If you have specific questions, then ask, but don’t expect a full tutorial, which you can blindly type, and it magically works.
So live session you mean use a usb correct? How do i chroot into the system, and how do i get to ending the file manually? Seems like someone posted what must be done removing the dashes.
I appreciate the honesty man. I am new to linux i got my first laptop ever not to long ago and asked my self what can i do with a computer and found out about Tails and then found out about all these other linux distros. What do you recommend i learn in order to follow instructions for new updates? Like coding language?
A coding language is not necessary. Just understand how to use the terminal and bash/zsh. When administering a Linux Distro, you will be able to avoid the terminal for some degree, but in most cases you get just terminal commands. It is the main and preferable way to administer the system easy and fast, because on any Distro it is 90% the same. If you use GUIs (Graphical Windows), you will soon see that the design is very different on every Desktop Environment and you have to search the options again.
The terminal on Linux is not like the CMD on Windows, which stuck at 1980 and was not improved since then. It is the most advanced tool for power users.
how do i go about mounting it? where do i get the option to enter my password. also you mentioned run it like this. so i have to mount if first before i can run it, how do i check what device or partition manjaro is installed in
to find out the device name, which you’ll need to substitute in the example given:
Executing the first command will prompt you for the password.
(first for the admin/sudo password, as is usual when using sudo
then for the password to unlock the encrypted device)
The second command will then attach the unlocked device to /mnt
where it’s contents are available
the third command does the actual chroot process
There is the IT convention of <variable> to be replaced by someValue, but it can be a trap for newbies who don’t know this yet and type in the angle brackets, i.e. instructions to redirect data, which they likely also don’t know about yet.
does this affect where manajor was instaled. how do i go about choosing what device the sda ones i assume are my live usb everytime i try to unlock with sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda or sda 1 sda2 root it says not valid luks device
im entering the correct password to unlock but its not working says no key available with this passphrase. do you guys recomend i reinstall manjaro on my harddrive. seems like where manjaro used to be installed is now free space.
When i first got this mesage no cryotdisk found i panicked booted up tails and deleted the partition for manjaro thinking it would let me bypass that screen. Now when i boot up manajaro with a usb and go to the installer where manajro used to be installed it now says free space instead of manjaro so im wondering if i messed up by deleteing the partition maybe thats why i cant find the disk that has manajaro.
can someone please help with my questions? or can i pay someone here to fix mylaptop. geez never should of gotten my self into manjaro. i get i have some things to read but they dont answer my question
how can i post screen shots every time i try it says sorry cant embed image items on post. maybe i can explain my self better with pictures. and show you what i mean by free space. because when i entered the command “lsblk --fs” manjaro partition doesnt show up only the live usb. i want to be able to explain my self do apoligize if i havent been able to get my point across.
but i asked this when i first posted my question and it was never answered so i was always left with the question does it matter that i deleted the partition? i didnt ignore your commands i typed them but didnt find the device where manjaro is installed so i can mount it.
Look. You are TL0, Trust Level 0. That means you cannot post links or picture. That is spam prevention. Spend some time here, read posts etc, then you reach TL1 quickly. Secondly, pictures of text, especially terminal outputs, are highly discouraged for reasons.
And sdb (see above ) is your usb drive?
lsblk shows the block devices and parted all partitions. So to get an idea of what you have, we need both. Got it? Help us to help you
And it wasn’t possible to copy and paste it in code block? You did that before.
