I was receiving notifications from Manajro saying that the root partition was getting full so I decided to resize it. I booted up from an USB and deleted my home partition, resized my root and then formatted a new home partition. I think the process failed because of a misconnection of the USB and now when I boot it gives me a error saying:
[DEPEND] Dependency failed for /home.
[DEPEND] Dependency failed for Local File Systems.
and then prompting me to
Give root password for maintenance, but it doesn’t recognize my usual root password. So I can’t access any terminal to try to fix this issue.
I think the problem my be some mismatch in the UUID from my partitions. I’m aware that resizing home partitions is always dangerous.
The biggest problem is that I can’t get my BIOS to recognize a bootable USB! This means that I can’t try to fix my install or simply reinstall Manjaro. I have already tried to
dd two USB and they are recognized by Ubuntu in another machine.
Can anyone help?
install ventoy onto the usb, flash iso and try with it
When you remove a partition and recreate it - the partition UUID change - thus invalidating your fstab.
The same may happen when you resize your root file system - some times depending on the direction of the change.
Live ISO - mount the root partition and enter the correct UUID(s)
Thank you for the replies.
I managed to do that and now I can boot. The problem now is that the GUI is different from what it used to be and when I access the file explorer I get a flickering widow saying Ups! Something went wrong".
At first I thought it was just because Manjaro couldn’t see some config files at \home. However, when I log in a terminal I’m at root and also there is no user folder at \home. Maybe I created the home partition the wrong way. I thought that I could simply format some unallocated space into a btrfs filesystem.
Do you know what might be wrong?
Sounds like there is a missing /home/“username” folder. You might want to remove the old user and create a new one as root since you can boot into it.
My user was still there, but there it had no associated /home. I used
mkhomedir_helper to create an home folder.
I’m now in the process of copying my directories back to /home. I think everything might be corrected now.
