The screen is stuck on an error message, “failed to loadsave ness of backlight”. Ive seen similer issues on the forum, but it sounded like the issue wasn’t fixed. This is the 2nd time the OS has refused to boot, the first time it was because of a different issue so i had to totally reinstall from a bootable usb, which sucks because i lost all of my files. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated
Yeah it is not solved, but it is systemd problem, not a manjaro problem. It just trys to access the backlight.
Could you send the output of?
systemctl status systemd-backlight@backlight:acpi_video0.service
To disable it:
systemctl disable systemd-backlight@backlight:acpi_video0.service
To let the system never ever enable it again, mask it:
systemctl mask systemd-backlight@backlight:acpi_video0.service
it wont let me post an image or a link, but it says basically says the process failed (for the first command) im going to try the other ones now
copy&paste it here Shouldn’t be that hard…
copy paste? i cant get into the laptop so thats impossible. sorry if that sounds rude maybe im misunderstanding you
ok here we go:
- boot with a manjaro install device
- open a terminal
- then type the commands above
- open a browser… the rest should be obvious, but…
- go to https://forum.manjaro.org/ and login
- copy&paste the command to the terminal:
- copy&paste the output here as code.
And i am sorry, i forgot that “it wont boot”, thought you were in a live session.
ohh i see. Im using using a different laptop right now. Also excuse my ignorance but the rest isnt obvious.
updated the poste above
BTW … there is also guide …
tried all of the things in that article
So you cant access your system by runlevel 3, or even by chroot ?
just noticed theres a / at the end of the command line starting with “linux” on my end, but not in the tutorial. Does that make a difference?
What are you referring to ?
I dont see any command in that post that ends in a slash.
… do you mean your boot options?
The things on the
CMD lines of
Cuz if thats true … yeah … you probably dont want a random slash there … I dont really know what that would do.
in your tutorial it looks like this :
linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.11-x86_64 root=UUID=0a01099a-1e33-489a-a2de-10104e8492f5 rw quiet
in mine it looks like this: linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.11-x86_64 root=UUID=0a01099a-1e33-489a-a2de-10104e8492f5 rw quiet /
I dont think that should be there … but it wont hurt anything to try temporarily just booting by replacing
quiet with the
3 … and if necessary again but also deleting the slash.
so i followed those steps and it took me to tty, but it wont let me type anything. Should i just reboot and try again?
Thats not good
I would say try again, maybe find a usb keyboard …
Or … use the
manjaro-chroot method if all else fails.
sounds good i will try that. Thanks for all your help btw
ok ive gotton into tty, (keyboard works) and i tried <sudo pacman-mirrors -f3> and
<sudo pacman -Syyu> but i get a bunch of error messages, and then “error: failed to synchronize all databases” is that because its not connected to wifi?
