Hello fellow Manjaro peoples!
Recently I have seen a lot of panicking because update XX/XX/XX broke their system, and now they get something like
Error: Cannot access tty. You have been dropped to an emergency shell.Or
Job control turned off: You are on your own. Good luck!
There is nothing to worry about, and you should be up in about 15-20 minutes!
Here is how.
Step 1. Find, or prepare a Manjaro bootable medium (USB, DVD (etc.))
Step 2. Go into your BIOS, and set your computer to boot from the medium.
Step 3. Boot into the live environment. Exactly how you did when you installed Manjaro.
Step 4. Launch a terminal or Konsole (for KDE users)
Step 5. For non BTRFS users: Type
Step 5. For BTRFS users: Read the steps at the bottom of this tutorial, then proceed to step 6
Step 6. Type
Sudo pacman -Syyuu Into the terminal
Step 7. When that finishes, type
Step 8. Upon completion of that, type
Step 9. Reboot you computer
Step 10. Your installation is saved!
———Step 5 for those who use BTRFS———
Step 5a. Launch gparted, or KDE partition manager, and identify which drives you use for you partitions (You may only have one)
Step 5b. Find the drive identifier. It will look start with /dev
/dev/sd(x), /dev/nvme0 Or
/dev/Mmcblk0 are examples.
Step 5b. Mount you root partition with
sudo mount /dev/(indentifier) /mnt(ex.)
Mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
Step 5c. Mount all other partitions at their subsequent mount points but instead of /mnt/mountpoint, you will have to use
/mnt/@/“mountpoint” so for an example home partition, you would use
mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/@/home
Step 5d. Type
—Continue on to step 6.—
Notice: If you are using an encrypted volume (Luks) partition for the root in your Manjaro system, DO NOT use this tutorial as I have not included how to chroot into this configuration. I may in the future, but not now.
Well, I hope this helps someone. Be sure to leave comments with any questions or issues. Peace out!
