I dont remember exactly what package I was installing, but my terminal began returning an error, so i reboot. After the reboot my kernel would crash, stating:
/sbin/init: error while loading shared libraries: liblzma.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
after scraping the internet, it would seem i ended up uninstalling xz-utils somehow, probably entered the wrong option on an install script.
So i was wondering what i could do to reinstall this from a live-boot environment, if possible, if not I will just backup what files i can and reinstall.
can you boot on USB iso manjaro
open a terminal
sudo manjaro-chroot -a
pacman-mirrors -c all
exit ( end chroot)
unfortunately this gives the same error.
pacman: error while loading shared libraries: liblzma.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
chmod +x ./pacman-static
sudo ./pacman-static -Syyu
same issue afterwards, non-static pacman and boot say the above error.
Have you tried (re)installing the
yes, this resulted in pacman returning nothing, and the boot error changing to
pacman: error while loading shared libraries: liblzma.so.5: file is too short
So no output? That’s not a good sing.
Something probably went wrong during the installation.
yeah i think at this point, it might just be safer for a full system reinstall to be done.
Well, you could try one more thing:
sudo ./pacman-static -U "xz-5.2.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst"
same problem my stuff is backed up.
home directory is backed up after my day at work, so im just resetting.
thankyou for all the help, i learned a bit.
