• \[SOLVED\]pacman-init.service failed to load


    After following the instructions to migrate to Antergos I then restarted my computer and while it was booting I saw a big red [FAILED] followed by some text about pacman keyring. I tried starting the service and this is what shows up:

      
    Failed to issue method call: Unit pacmankeyring.service failed to load: No such file or directory. See system logs and 'systemctl status pacmankeyring.service' for details.  
    
    
      
    pacmankeyring.service  
    Loaded: error (Reason: No such file or directory)  
    Active: inactive (dead)  
    
    

    Did it disappear? o_0

  • mmmmm I don’t know about any pacmankeyring service :S

    Some time ago, the installer was setting a service called pacman-init but this is not longer neccesary

  • But it only showed up today o_0

    Never seen this error before. What should I do?

    EDIT: Wait I think i typed that service wrong

    In MDM i could press CTRL+ALT+F1 to see the linux booting screen with all the services coming up online. How can I do that with GDM?

  • Gnome and GDM starts on tty1 so I guess you have to go to tty2 (not sure)

    But you can also check your log with

    sudo journalctl -b
    

    And if you want to extract the log:

    sudo journalctl -b -O cat \> log.txt
    

    The “-b” parameter is to show only your current session and not sessions in the past

  • If I run

      
    sudo journalctl -b -O cat \> log.txt  
    
    

    I get this: bash: log.txt: Permission denied

    I ran journactl -b on terminal and I have these errors in red:

    It’s telling me something needs a password?

  • Sorry, it was “-o” instead of “-O”

    If you run the journalctl command without sudo you will get your user log

  •   
    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo journalctl -b -o cat \> log.txt  
    bash: log.txt: Permission denied

    Ok I copied everything that showed up on the terminal and pasted it in gedit. Here’s the file

  • Like I thought I typed the service wrong. It’s actually “pacman-init.service”

    [Here’s a picture.[/url:1qrpe0gk]

    You said it’s no longer needed? So how can I solve this?]0

  • sudo systemctl disable pacman-init
    
  • Well that was simple thanks

  • same problem for me
