thank you for looking…
What exactly do you mean by “distro won’t let you in”?
yes that is vague forgive me i didn’t want to ‘guess-speak’ on it
[failed to add/activate connection]
(1) not authorized to control networking
-when attempting to connect to wifi
What are the error messages you see and what are you exactly trying to do when you see them?
in addition to the above ^^^ …there are these:
when i tried to run the update (in gui):
[failed retrieving file ‘multilib.files’ from doge.ing.puc.cl: could not resolve host: doge.ing.puc.cl]
[menulibre: local (1:2.1.0-1) is newer than community 2.1.3-2]
when i do the update in the terminal it throws connection errors ‘obviously’ due to the above^^^
service NetworkManager restart
- Stopping NetworkManager … [ ok ]
- Starting NetworkManager … [ ok ]
Connecting… 0s [offline]
- Marking NetworkManager as inactive. It will automatically be marked
- as started after a network connection has been established.
- WARNING: NetworkManager has started, but is inactive
Can you not log into Manjaro Openrc or Linux Mint?
MINT is fine.
Openrc is not.
i am given root though so it accepts my user passwd to login to the DE;
and my root passwd to become root
If you can log into Mint, can you access your Manjaro partition from there?
i believe so but am not skilled in doing that to be honest.
Can you access your Manjaro partition if you boot from the Live CD?
i would like to ask for help in this please…
live CD gives me web fine and i seem to be able to move around but it wouldn’t help me try and update
Is your Manjaro partition encrypted?
no. and lvm was not used on install.
