Today I ran on my dualboot Windows7/Manjaro system the usual update ‘sudo pacman -Syu’, starting a system update.
While doing so, my pc froze (this happens from time to time and must not be necessarily be connected to my problem), so I hit the restart button.
After doing so, my system failed to boot, giving me
error: file ‘/boot/vmlinuz-5.8-x86_64’ not found,
error: you need to load the kernel first.
which I could solve by installing the newest kernels (and nvidia-drivers) with chroot
Now however I’m stuck when logging in, where only a white screen with a sad smiley and the text:
“Oh no! Something has gone wrong”
I can log into TTY and already tried
- disabling all gnome-extensions
- Checking my partitions with gparted
I then tried following an archlinux-forum post, suggesting to take a look at the journal of the last boot, the pacman.log and the Xorg.1.log, however, as I am not really experienced with troubleshooting, I do not know what to look for in the logs and even if I did find anythin, I would probably not know how to resolve it.
So maybe someone has either
- another approach how to solve this problem.
- the skills, the time and the will to take a look at my logs: (I wanted to put links to the logs here, but as I am only TL0, this is not possible).
Every bit of help is much appreciated!
PS: I tried to match everything I tried with a corresponding link to a forum, however, since I am only TL0, I was not allowed to add any links, which makes this a bit harder to document - sorry for the inconvenience.
