• anteargos is stuck and doesn't load up


    Im not sure where to post my issue , so i’ll try here.
    antergos on my laptop won’t load up anymore after i did an update and restarted. it stops at a message saying
    [ OK] Started Light Display Manager.
    [ OK ] Reached target Graphical Interface

    and then nothing else happens after that except for a blinking bar , what do i do to fix this ?

  • Make an Antergos Live USB and boot into it. Mount your / partition. Use arch-chroot to change your root directory to the directory you mounted. Refer to this article for arch-chroot environment: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/change_root.

    Then, do a pacman -Syyu and see if it recovers. Update AUR packages as well.

  • @judd naaw ,no worries, u havn’t caused me any inconvenience at all, you actually helped me to achieve my goal of logging back on so thats pretty cool, but i got several more problems now than i had before ,and got tons of new questions, but at least i can now backup all my files and do a fresh install of antergos, and thats whats most important right now , i reckon this time around ill go plasma + xfce

  • Hi,

    error could not open file /var/lib/pacman/sync/community.db: Unrecognized archive format
    error could not open file /var/lib/pacman/sync/multilib.db: Unrecognized archive format
    

    You have your databases corrupted. This could mean many things, but check your harddisk in case it’s failing…

    Cheers!

  • @karasu i was able to get back in , but that display manager gave me issues where my wacom tablet wasnt working properly , so i backed up everything then reinstalled . So im fine
