I’m relatively new to Linux and I would appreciate any advice.
Yesterday after an update that was interrupted by a power outage, Manjaro stopped working. When booting, I get a message that it failed to load kernel modules and it failed to load pgkfilesdatabase. Then it says platform INT3515:01 deferred probe pending. This is followed by a never-ending list of audit attempts starting with [UWF BLOCK].
I can’t boot into any OS and I can’t copy the code I’m seeing to present to the forum.
Before Manjaro crashed in this way, sudo pacman -Syu found an error that the databases could not be synchronised. It said something called noto-fonts may be corrupted. I tried to update with pamac but it said AUR could not synchronize with the database. I updated via pamac anyway. The next time I tried to boot up, I got the Failure to load kernel module warning and platform INT3515:01 deferred probe pending which just goes on and on at a blinking cursor.
I am, however, still able to boot a live USB to get to Manjaro that way.
boot into manjaro live usb, make sure you are connected to internet; then open terminal and chroot: manjaro-chroot -a
then rerun update: pacman-mirrors -f 5 && pacman -Syyu
if there are errors post the output here…
and post output from this too: mhwd-kernel -li
[manjaro /]# cat /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
# vim:set ft=sh
# The following modules are loaded before any boot hooks are
# run. Advanced users may wish to specify all system modules
# in this array. For instance:
# MODULES=(piix ide_disk reiserfs)
# This setting includes any additional binaries a given user may
# wish into the CPIO image. This is run last, so it may be used to
# override the actual binaries included by a given hook
# BINARIES are dependency parsed, so you may safely ignore libraries
# This setting is similar to BINARIES above, however, files are added
# as-is and are not parsed in any way. This is useful for config files.
# This is the most important setting in this file. The HOOKS control the
# modules and scripts added to the image, and what happens at boot time.
# Order is important, and it is recommended that you do not change the
# order in which HOOKS are added. Run 'mkinitcpio -H <hook name>' for
# help on a given hook.
# 'base' is _required_ unless you know precisely what you are doing.
# 'udev' is _required_ in order to automatically load modules
# 'filesystems' is _required_ unless you specify your fs modules in MODULES
## This setup specifies all modules in the MODULES setting above.
## No raid, lvm2, or encrypted root is needed.
## This setup will autodetect all modules for your system and should
## work as a sane default
# HOOKS=(base udev autodetect block filesystems)
## This setup will generate a 'full' image which supports most systems.
## No autodetection is done.
# HOOKS=(base udev block filesystems)
## This setup assembles a pata mdadm array with an encrypted root FS.
## Note: See 'mkinitcpio -H mdadm' for more information on raid devices.
# HOOKS=(base udev block mdadm encrypt filesystems)
## This setup loads an lvm2 volume group on a usb device.
# HOOKS=(base udev block lvm2 filesystems)
## NOTE: If you have /usr on a separate partition, you MUST include the
# usr, fsck and shutdown hooks.
HOOKS="base udev autodetect modconf block keyboard keymap consolefont filesystems fsck"
# Use this to compress the initramfs image. By default, gzip compression
# is used. Use 'cat' to create an uncompressed image.
# Additional options for the compressor
edit your posts and format them properly…
now uninstall nvidia: mhwd -r pci video-nvidia-470xx
install also the 6.1 kernel: pacman -S linux61
remove the linux60: pacman -R linux60
install back nvidia: mhwd -i pci video-nvidia-470xx
now open this: nano /etc/default/grub
and edit this line to look like this: GRUB_TIMEOUT_STYLE=menu
save it with ctrl+x, press ‘y’, update grub: update-grub
reboot and now the grub menu will be shown, so in the advanced options select the kernel 6.1 - but dont select the fallback one… and try also with the 5.15 if the 6.1 doesnt work
