Hi guys, I had some issues with my previous installation of Manjaro on my SSD so I started fresh and just did the basic setup. I pointed to the fastest mirror, updated my system, installed the detected drivers (video-virutalmachine, video-modesetting, video-vesa), enabled SSD TRIM, enabled AUR and downloaded microsoft truetype fonts.
Other than that I didn’t do much, I set up oss-code and downloaded extensions I wanted, and pull a Github repo and everything worked until I shut off my computer last night, and this morning I had issues.
I get the error:
/dev/sda2: clean ###/### files, ###/### blocks
and I can’t seem to do much. I can access my account by using ctrl+alt+f2 (I think that was the command), then logging in using my username and password, however not overly sure what to do from here. I can type into the terminal from there but not sure what to do as I am a beginner.
I “solved” this by again starting over on a fresh installation again as I didn’t have much done, but following the same setup steps caused the same issue. Not sure what could be causing it or if I’m simply doing something wrong but any help would be greatly appreciated. Also when I’m booted via a USB drive, when I install/partition to the SSD I select the erase all option, not sure if that is useful information.
I’m literally just lost right now, looking for any sort of solution, as a student who relies on Manjaro to get programming work done, this has caused me a lot of issues, I chose Manjaro as I heard it was easy to use, not sure if someone would recommend me switching to something else if this keeps up or once I get it set up properly it’ll be fine afterwards.
That’s not an error. That’s an informational message that your filesystem was checked for errors at boot time.
This suggests that it’s most likely a video driver issue. If you want this trouble-shot — is that a word? — then you’re going to have to provide us with more information. Our mind-reading skills are a bit under the weather and our crystal ball has recently broken.
If that is not a virtual machine install, you do not need video-virutalmachine so you can remove it, and regardless what install is, you really don’t need video-vesa
Honestly, you do not need to install on any system all the available drivers.
Once you reboot after that there should be no problem, but depends on your hardware.
will tell you more about your hardware and you can share it here, so people can help more in case there are more issues.
A system must be really broken for a fresh install, in 99% of cases all is fixable.
just to see what the output would give. If you want to take a look to see if there are any other steps I should take before diving in too deep I would appreciate it, but if not, my problem is solved so no worries. Thanks again!
