Hello, I’ve got a strange problem.
My sister’s computer running Antergos by itself is unable to graphically boot. When I tried to boot it before today, the computer seemed to go into a lower power state, and the backlight flickered very subtly on a blank screen. After a few minutes, it stabilized and there was a terminal cursor in the upper left. While the screen was flickering, I was unable to switch TTYs, and pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to tty1 brought up the initial boot message stating that the root was clean, and nothing after that.
Today, when I started up the computer, the boot messages said that it was unable to start LightDM, so it might be related to that. After trying to start LightDM, the boot hangs.
I can switch TTYs once it’s stabilized, and I can boot into multi-user.target no problem. I can also boot into the rescue shell.
The computer is an HP All-In-One 24-f0047c with AMD Radeon R5 graphics. KDE Plasma is the DE if it’s important.
I’ve already tried the fix here, as suggested in IRC. No change in ability to graphically boot. I have also tried to switch to the LTS kernel, also no change. Force updating all packages also didn’t work.
According to Tiedemann in IRC there doesn’t seem to be any driver issues.
Here are my logs, with commands used to get them:
Couldn’t find Xsession logs, unfortunately. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong spots.
No x-0-greeter.log, so I’ll post the rest that are in that directory.
seat0-greeter.log.old is the same.
If you can tell me where to look for them, I can paste additional logs. Thank you for your assistance!
