• KVM Disabled by Bios

    Re: [SOLVED] How to disable KVM module?
    I have this error.
    This is probably a dumb question but where do you make these changes from? The live disk, non-graphical interface (which I can’t access -it says I have to install something that starts with “system”), or am I missing something that is just really obvious that I am just not seeing?

  • KVM Disabled by Bios

    So you will need to edit this inside the BIOS/EFI-firmware ?

    Take a look and search for “virtualization” inside bios settings

  • I disregarded the changes to mke in the linked post and enabled virtualization in bios as suggested, but that resulted in a failed to start lightdm error. I found a post from 2015 with descriptions on how to fix that, only they didn’t work. The third line gave me grief (the line with “Syy”). I am now stuck at failed to start lightdm again. Where do I proceed to?

  • Please give more detailed information about what you want to solve, and what is the problem…

    As the linked post has nothing to do with lightdm post starter want to get rid of the error message only…

  • Really frustrated right now.
    I cant edit my originl post now and am stuck tyipng on tablet and its very limiting.

    New error is
    Failed to start light display manager

    I looked at stsemctl status and it shows
    ‘’'Loaded: loaded etc
    Active:failed etc
    Process: 325 execstart=/usr/bin/lightdm (code=exited, status=1/failure
    Main pid: 325 etc

    Service holdoff time over scheduling restart
    Scheduled restart job restartcounter is at 5
    Stopped light display manager
    Start request repeated too quickly
    Failed with result exit code
    Failed to start lihy display manager’’’

    What do I do to fix this?

  • Boot up with the LiveIso.
    mount installed system to /mnt

    You need to know which device is the right one check with

    sudo fdisk -l
    sudo su

    (/dev/sdXn should be replaced with the right device information)

    on modern EFI system (for bios-system read here: https://antergos.com/wiki/miscellaneous/how-to-fix-grub-with-bios-boot/)

    mount /dev/sdXn /mnt >> / root partition
    mount /dev/sdXn /mnt/boot >>> /boot partition
    mount /dev/sdXn /mnt/boot/efi >>>>> the EFI-boot (fat) partition
    arch-chroot /mnt

    so you wil have the installed system inside a terminal, and can copy paste and doing system maintanence.

    Would be needed to get the boot log from installed system to see what is going wrong:

    journalctl -b -0 | curl -F [email protected] https://ptpb.pw/?u=1

    this will autopost the bootlog to a pastebin and gives a short url you can copy and paste here.

  • I wound up taking a break. The livestick wasn’t working anymore so I had a couple others from testing and I had to install one of those before I could do anything. I knew those testing iso’s weren’t working correctly but it was all I had. I had to install one of those before I could do anything.
    I re-downloaded antergos and had a b- of a time getting a new liveiso made. Command line was not working on my sticks. It seemed to be fine, but would not boot into the new environment. So I followed the what “not” to do and made a livestick with something from an appstore and was able to make a stick -for some reason this posted just now even though I was just hitting the caps key by accident.
    I installed the new iso with xfce, thinking it might be a graphics issue since my computer is kinda old.
    It still will not boot.
    When I try from the liveusb, I am having a lot of issues visually. Lots of sketchy black boxes populating all over the place as I type.
    Should I move this to installation errors?
    What do I do now? I am completely at my wits end and don’t know where to go. I don’t even know what the error is anymore or how to find out.
    Here is the shorturl, but I don’t know if I did it right.

  • i will take a look later, just build a new rescue-iso here…

  • It doesnt seem to matter which de I use or how many errors I solve, a new error pops up that prevents loading.
    First kvm, then lightdm, then bios resetting time 7 hours in the future, then zfs not mounting, then zpool not empty, and now a new one I havent even looked at yet because it just makes me want to give up.
    It shouldn’t be this hard.
    I give up.

  • May problem is hardware melting?

  • I’ve the same issue. Old PC with kvm warning at early boot process, and now failed to start Light Display Manager.
    This not hardware, since GRUB and other systems (multiboot) starts normally.
    I think that may happened after last system update.
    With Antergos liveUSB I tryed to get journalctl but only ‘No entries’ found.

  • hard to figure out… as lightdm is last updated 23.12.2017
    lightdm-webkit2-greeter 10.01.2018
    kernels (linux/linux-lts) 23.01.2018

  • Maybe a kernel. Yesterday I updated the system that I installed on 21.01.2018. I turned off automatic updates.
