My laptop froze while watching a movie, went to a black screen only showing the cursor arrow. I forced it to shut down, now it only boots to this screen after typing my encryption password.
Sorry, the mobile site for this forum won’t let me upload an attachment so I have to use an imgur link.
Seems you need to repair your partition.
sudo fsck /dev/sd[a-z][0-9]
Following this warning:
- In any scenario, never use file system repair software such as fsck directly on an encrypted volume, or it will destroy any means to recover the key used to decrypt your files. Such tools must be used on the decrypted (opened) device instead.
You will need to open luks at a live session and repair it there.
So i guess it have to be like this:
cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/rawdevice somename
