  • Also stuck at “starting version 235” after latest updates.

    Try to downgrade gdm and libgdm from 3.26.2-1 to 3.26.1-1.

    1.) Reboot machine.
    In GRUB menu press ‘E’ to edit a GRUB entry.
    In the line of “/boot/vmlinuz…” add “systemd.unit=multi-user.target” (without quotes).
    Press Cntl-X to boot this entry.
    At the bottom of screen you can find this in a short instruction.

    2.) When machine booted in command line interface, log in and type this command in a terminal:

    sudo pacman -U /var/cache/pacman/pkg/gdm-3.26.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz /var/cache/pacman/pkg/libgdm-3.26.1-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz 

    3.) And add these two lines in /etc/pacman.conf to ignore this update, until next version comes out:

    IgnorePkg   = gdm
    IgnorePkg   = libgdm

    Solution is from Arch forums

  • @Gergely-Sipkai Hello, thanks for response. My doubt is how to do this if i cant start session. is possible use grub commandline?

    i was try to use chroot in a live cd for restore or uninstall packages but i dont know if i was using properly. I mounted
    mount -t /dev/sda1 /mnt/
    chroot /mnt/ /bin/bash

  • @cristrodmorguer
    Yes, it is possible to boot without grafical interface from GRUB. I expanded my answer with this.
