• Can't boot anymore


    Hello
    I am in vacation and my laptop doesn’t want too boot anymore. I enter my encryption password and then the command like thing “reloads” itself again and again.

    When I try it with the LTS Kernel I get some errors.

    Picture of the errors: https://www.u-cloud.ch/owncloud6/index.php/s/Kit3j5IXxGdJU61

    I need my computer to import pictures so I’d be very happy if someone could help me.

    1. your not entering the correct password/passphrase.
    2. or most probably some hardware failure. Some USB drives have this over-current protection. It gets triggered when power consumption from some port is high.

    Solution: Unplug your USB devices.
    Turn power off.
    Wait a minute or two.
    Plug everything back and reboot.

  • The thing is that there is nothing plugged in and I enter my password correctly…

  • The scanner at the airport might have broken something…

  • I can not help you much … but I think from what I saw in the photo you have problems with / etc / fstab

  • @judd Everthing helps! What do you mean? Should I modify soething in there?

  • What judd says is right, the displayd error says that you plugged a corrupt usb drive.
    If this is not valid, you need to boot with Live-Iso or try Fallback Kernel, then check for bootup errors (to see if there is a hardware problem) and provide what is inside your /etc/fstab from HD (open Filebrowser and go to other devices > Antergos-root > etc > fstab)

    Can you need to boot with Fallback Kernel ???

  • Thanks for you answers.

    I can’t use any of the available options. All 4 lead to similar results. This morning when I tried to boot normal I got this: https://www.u-cloud.ch/owncloud6/index.php/s/u5ioMWp0ufjsLIb

    I dont’t have access to a live medium. I tried to boot with USB devices attached whicht didn’t work.

    With “alt+F2” I can login into Antergos in the command line. I think that way I was able to open fstab. Here is what it says:

    How do I read out hardware errors?

  • looks more like a kernel issue to me…
    but:

    dmesg | grep failed
    dmesg | grep error
    

    should give some more hints.

  • When I enter dmesg I get hundreds of lines…

  • strange… you do the update to gnome 3.24 already before holidays?
    you can try to reinstall gnome group… oh! wait you are on cinnamon?

    Cinnamon has a gtk problem…

    #sudo pacman -R gnome-desktop

  • Yes, I did it Tuesday or so. I am using GNOME and there is no other desktop installed. And I never had any other one. So no Cinnamon installed.

  • This post is deleted!
  • Then the only thing i would try is ty a full update and reinstall minimum the gnome group:

    # sudo pacman -Syu
    # sudo pacman -S gnome

  • Is there a way to connect to a Wifi from command line?

  • Otherwise I would have to find a wired connection somewhere.

  • Guys finally a simple

    sudo pacman -Syyu
    

    solved my problems. Thanks for the hint @joekamprad.

    I was surprised to see that the computer still was connected to the hostel’s Wifi even though it is protected by a login screen with username/PW.

    Case solved thanks to all for your thoughts/help.
