Hi, My hp8470p is now screwed.
The recent update with libcanberra conflicts broke my system. The system has a broken lockscreen and stays only with a cursor on a black screen. The Login screen has some Errors on the theme. I decided to reinstall everything and heres how my 24hours are lost.
I’m reinstalling the Os not via bootable and both mbr and gpt installation are successful.
However once I booted into MBR, Os works fine just until i do the pacman Updates including removing libcanberra. When I restarted, the Os will has a broken lockscreen and will stuck on the loading manjaro splash screen.
Now after second reinstall on mbr, the kernels are lost. Grub only shows memtest.
My Bios is not set to read in UEFI hybrid with Csm.
Resinstalling everything under GPT was much worst.
The Os was successfully installed, allocated Efi partition, swap partition and the root. Problem is the Os now isn’t detected by the laptop. Even Grub. I tried chrooting and reinstalling grub only gives me memtest only . The Kernel installed was 5.8.
On the recent update about libcanberra, I removed them through ‘sudo pacman -R’ not on pamac. Pamac was doing errors and hanging on warning about reils if I’m not mistaken. I tried updating everything on pacman and everything was updated but after a reboot, the system was totally broken right after the login screen.
Are you downloading the 21.0.7 from Manjaro website, or RC (21.1.0 RC3) one from GitHub? [If you download the 21.0.7 iso, if will most probably have to update to get to the latest version, i.e. 21.1.0 RC3]
Yeah, I’ve tried before starting from scratch. As I’ve mentioned, my previous system was hanging with pamac update. No idea why, I have internet, mirrors are updated. Gui isn’t even working so seriously, there’s something wrong with my system. Now after the latest Iso installation, I’m making a time shift backup incase the updates from pacman breaks again
It’s 21.0.7. so I am updating pamac / pacman after making a timeshift backup because I have no separate bootable device. I’m using them both for windows and manjaro so I can not just burn the iso everytime I
