• antergos won't boot


    Hi i’m mad, i need help and support in english , my os is gnome3, the problem is that my antergos won’t boot up anymore and i don’t know why. the last thing i remember doing is turning off airplane mode , and then when i restart my laptop i get to a black screen that says
    AntergosRoot: recovering jornal
    AntergosRoot: clean, 604496/10756096 files, 9617807/43013632 blocks

    and it just hangs there forever , what do i do ?

  • @Hewpow Can you go into the BIOS settings and see if Antergos is still a boot option?

  • @moredoor when i turn on my laptop it loads up to the antergos screen , and when it loads up , The stuff that i wrote above happens

  • I have a very difficult case that i can’t solve, i need to get in contact with the biggest antergos administrator boss

  • Well, I’m the best that you can get here. And I still suggest the Live CD option as a solution to boot and access your data (and fix the GRUB)

  • @Hewpow can you change to TTY2 [ctrg+Alt+F2] ???

  • @EarthMind oh the grub is fine and works, but after antergos is selected it just loads up to a black screen with a message saying

    starting version 232
    AntergosRoot: recovering jornal
    AntergosRoot: clean, 604496/10756096 files, 9617807/43013632 blocks

    I suppose this is some sort of linux ransomware malware within antergos thats installed by the antergos team and targets random users, i gotta warn people of this virus within antergos. I’ve clearly made a very poor choice in choosing linux as an OS for my laptop over windows, its my biggest regret.

  • @joekamprad yep, but after i log into terminal nothing happens , there is no desktop enviroment , i think its a virus

  • no it is a problem with X not starting, if you get a prompt and can login you can fix this.

  • @joekamprad but logging in did nothing for me , its just a black terminal screen , it’s not fixed

  • so you can log in?
    what gives you:

    systemctl status lightdm
    

    then?

  • its too much to type manually , basically a bunch of code=exited, stats=1 FAILURE

    Failed to start Light Display Manager.
    lightdm.serveric hold-off time over
    Lightdm.service Failed with result ‘exit-code’

  • System is fine only a problem with getting X started as i say…
    Lightdm the Desktop Manager is not able to start, so there is a problem with graphic driver, what is it? your Graphic-Card?

  • @joekamprad there is no graphics card in my laptop, my laptop is intel core i3 , 4gb ddr3 ram

  • shure no pcie card like in a PC but a graphic chipset will be there for shure

  • Fast fix?

    sudo pacman -S gdm
    sudo systemctl disable lightdm
    sudo systemctl -f enable gdm
    sudo reboot
    
  • @joekamprad no, there isnt any AMD or nvidia chipset graphics, only intel core i3

  • then intel chipset

  • @joekamprad none of this did anything for me

  • sudo pacman -S gdm
    sudo systemctl disable lightdm
    sudo systemctl -f enable gdm
    sudo reboot
    

    gives you failures ? or what you want to say?
