EDIT: switching to kernel 4.19 seems to have fixed it.

I have radeon.modeset=1 in my command string, so if I add vga=current won’t the two conflict? one or other should suffice as it seems to work okay with modesetting.

EDIT - nevermind, found the answer on the arch wiki. it states to remove any vga= entries if using modesetting. So it really is use one or other here.

  • Any vga= options in your bootloader as these will conflict with the native resolution enabled by KMS.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Kernel_mode_setting

I’m having the same issue :frowning: … well let’s see how i can fix it :frowning: .

sigh how can i fix my grub problem if no live-UBS stick installation will boot into KDE? Manjaro 18 beta 7 will result in grub rescue screen and Manjaro 17.1.12 boot will not boot KDE and get stuck during boot :(.

EDIT:
Well ok i could boot the live-Version using Manjaro 18 beta 6 … strangely i could not mhwd-chroot … the command would result in “no linux system found!” :frowning: … so i reinstalled Manjaro from scratch using manual partioning and resuing the old partitions. So the system is reset, user files in my home directory are gone (as i did not have a seperate partition for that), but at least steam installations are still avaliable :wink: .

Have you seen the link in post # 14 above?

Do you mean this link? Using livecd v17.0.1 as grub to boot OS with broken bootloader

Tried it but search.file would result with “Could not find /etc/manjaro-release”

Never the less i solved it by reinstalling Manjaro. It is not my main computer so nothing critical is stored on it.

That means the basic installation is not done.

Okay, now try the search.file command. Use any grub prompt, not necessary from the install media grub. If it is not there, you have a typo.

Hello all, so after performing the stable update 2018-10-8 yesterday (which worked btw) I tried to activate smooth boot.

I followed the description that philm posted. After the first reboot I borked the system and went into grub rescue. Big thanks to user @gohlip for his rescue thread which I used to save my beacon. Now the system works properly again… with the standard boot. I still want to give smooth boot a shot so I am asking for assistance.

Going to comment the process philm posted and describe my theories.

  • install linux418 or linux419 ____I already had 4.18 installed
  • install grub-quiet ____this I have done with pacman via terminal, in the process I was asked to remove grub due to conflicts with grub-quit which I did
  • reinstall grub to MBR (Attention: use the correct cmd for your system!)
    • EFI: sudo grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=manjaro --recheck ____I used this command because I have efi installed
    • BIOS: sudo grub-install --recheck /dev/sd[X] (change [X] for your device letter. Check via lsblk -f )
  • reboot to see if all is still booting fine ___After doing this I went straight to grub rescue
  • check that you have loglevel=3 vga=current rd.systemd.show_status=auto rd.udev.log-priority=3 vt.global_cursor_default=0 in /etc/default/grub under GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT or GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX
  • sed -i -e 's|fsck||g' /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
  • sudo mkinitcpio -P
  • sudo update-grub
  • reboot your system

So I have a few theories what might have caused issues:

  • I once set the grub resolution to hd in the /etc grub file because it was blurry
  • I once set the “show grub during startup” time to 0 because I wanted the system to immediately boot without the choose “Advanced options” …
    Those 2 changes worked so far without issues.

I think that perhaps in the command sudo grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=manjaro --recheck I should add the drive partition to “=/boot/efi” because my root directory is in sda3 while my efi (boot) partition is in sda4 . Does this matter?

My system is AMD Ryzen 5 with Manjaro stable running the newest stable update and gnome 3.3

Let me know which stats are further needed…tks

I had the same issues. After I was able to fix my issue, I tried it again. But this time I did not reboot after reinstalling grub and it worked! So maybe the reboot is too early at this stage?

It seems to me that you needed to do sudo update-grub after grub-install. I am not sure but I think grub-quiet config generation scripts are slightly different from usual grub ones.

I tried this as well now and had to visit mr. grub rescue again. :thinking:

Btw. do I have to switch to testing in order to install it correctly? Bc. I thought that as of the latest stable this was not necessary anymore…

When doing the

sudo mkinitcpio -P

step I noticed:

Could this “cannot open file at” be the problem?

@Coffeetron, still referring to the link, use the livecd media, start in uefi mode and at grub prompt…

grub> search.file /etc/manjaro-release  root
grub> probe -u $root --set=abc
grub> linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.18-x86_64 root=UUID=$abc rw
grub> initrd /boot/initramfs-4.18-x86_64.img
grub> boot

Tell us if this boot to your OS.
If it does. at booted installed Manjaro OS terminal,
Provide

ls /etc/grub.d
cat /etc/mkinitcpio.conf | grep HOOKS
findmnt -s
sudo blkid

ps - warning - next step -You may need to uninstall all grub thingies…, grub, grub-quiet, grub-quit (?), grub-customiser, remove all things in /etc/grub.d, rename /etc/default/grub, reinstall grub, do a grub-install and do an update-grub.
Warning in advance.
BTW, did you install grub-customizer or had in the past?

Hi, I am already booted in my OS thanks to your thread… the

grub> search.file /etc/manjaro-release root
grub> configfile /boot/grub/grub.cfg

commands helped me to get back.

I never had grub-customizer in the past… The only things I did in Grub was once edit the resolution to 1920x1080 and set the time which grub lets me choose “Manjaro or Manjaro Advanced” to 0. But this must have been overwritten after I reinstalled it when I broke it prior.

What I found weird is that when running:

[mgm@Zeus-002 ~]$ sudo mkinitcpio
==> Starting dry run: 4.18.12-1-MANJARO

  -> Running build hook: [keymap]
cannot open file at
  -> Running build hook: [resume]
  -> Running build hook: [filesystems]
==> Generating module dependencies
==> Dry run complete, use -g IMAGE to generate a real image

that the hooks resume and filesystems could not be opened…

I checked with

[mgm@Zeus-002 ~]$ mkinitcpio -L
==> Available hooks

¹ This hook is deprecated in favor of 'block'
² This hook is deprecated in favor of 'keyboard'

and they should be there :thinking::thinking::thinking:

thank you!

btw. the /etc/default/grub file might be useful as well:

The HOOKS part in /etc/mkinicpio.conf looks okay to me.
But if others looking at it can see anything wrong, especially this messages below, please jump right in. I don’t understand why there should be these messages.

But I think all looks okay. Don’t worry.

Now the very good news.

It means your kernels (and initramfs files) are very okay.

ps: not to frighten you, but if you ever find difficulty somewhere along fixing it up.
You can always use this to boot up. That’s the reassuring part, not the frightening part.

Now another small thing to just make sure it is not a issue. Perhaps just to please me.
Can you comment out the fstab line of
/mnt/mDC.Zeus LABEL=mDC.Zeus auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show

I never like fstab with /mnt/xxx/xxxx. To me, that’s wrong. But yes, some have worked it.
After fixing the problem, you can add back and see if it has any problem, most likely not.
But…just do it for my sake. Thanks.

Okay. Let’s get to work. Remember, if we mess up anything, you can always boot back.
Do not reboot, shutdown at all until all the following below is done.

sudo pacman -R grub-quiet
sudo mv /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.old
sudo mv /etc/grub.d /etc/grub.d.old

If you have problems renaming the above 2, use “-Rf”
like…sudo mv -Rf /etc/grub.d /etc/grub.d.old
If not necessary, don’t need to use “-Rf” (some DE’s can be picky and some may not even allow this)
If still have difficulty, list those things in it and remove them, manually and one by one.

Continue…reinstall grub and if necessary force reinstallation

sudo pacman -S grub
sudo grub-install
sudo update-grub

Good luck.

ps: If all work and all is fine, I have a controversial statement.
Do not install grub-quiet.
There are other ways to make grub menu ‘silent’ without installing grub-quiet.
(Though I cannot say offhand what these are - I don’t do it but I know it can be done
Have helped others doing it here in this forum but I have forgotten, or cannot recall)
Ubuntu’s developers doing grub things are okay, but not RH (or Arch :rofl:)

Indeed, grub rescue was a nightmare and with the ISO it worked nicely. I hope that I won’t have to resort to it again but if I have its nice to have this option.

I have amended that, can confirm that it works.

I went through the steps and everything is working! :smiley:

Well tbh there was no “practical” advantage in installing grub-quit. I fancied the boot logo and since I updated the system I was thinking of trying it out. :sweat_smile: Its not an issue not having it and if I have the time I might give it another shot in the future…

Again, thank you for the help!

You’re welcome.

Ah, but I won’t help you next time. LOL :rofl:

Cheers.

You have resume hook in your mkinitcpio.conf, but no option for resume device in /etc/defauld/grub. You need to modify GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX to look like "resume=UUID=d4e014e9-7ee9-47db-9e24-989e697a64b6" in order to have working suspend-to-disk aka hibernation. I am not sure if this is related to that cannot open file at though.

Correct. But as OP has ‘resume’ in HOOKS line and fstab is correct, by asking to do again ‘grub-install’, that would have taken care of by itself. But yes, you are correct and worth noting.
Cheers.
