@howlinbash Hello! :)
It does look like something I’ve never seen, even so, you could try reinstalling all native packages using:
That command has saved me a couple of times after update got interrupted halfway thtough…
Maybe it could help you too…
In this case, as your system won’t boot you will need to use a Antergos Live USB and chroot your partitions…
For example, I have 4 partitions, boot, root, swap and home, but you don’t have to mount the swap partiotions, so, using a command line in an Antergos Live USB, I do the following:
In order to be able to mount the partitions then:
mount /dev/sda3 /mnt
To mount root, sda, being the hdd where antergos is installed and 3 being the partition number, if you are not sure what hdd you are using (a, b, c, etc…), you can use the “lsblk” command and see where Antergos is installed. Then:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot
To mount my boot partition. Then:
mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/home
To mount home, and finally:
Now you can update the system as if you had booted in your “normal” antergos system, you all you need to do now is introduce the “reinstall all native packages” command:
pacman -Qnq | pacman -S -
Wait for it to finish. Then, just use the command “exit” twice (one to exit chroot, and another to exit sudo su) and reboot the system without the Live USB drive. Your system could be able to boot at this point…
Sorry if I used to many steps, I don’t know if you are a newbie or not, but as I came from zero knowledge about linux and had to learn a lot by myself, I consider it would have been nice if someone had given me a better guide to solve some issues.
Doing all this will do what joekamprad suggested, rebuild the kernel images, as it will reinstall the linux packages too…
Hope it works for you! :D
Bienvenido a la comunidad de antergos!
De momento no veo como ayudarte a resolver el problema, ya que nunca había visto que pasara algo así…
Como recomendación, sería buena idea que agregaras mas detalles sobre lo que ocurre, como por ejemplo, dices que la pantalla gris aparece al iniciar la instalación, te refieres a que te carga bien el sistema, pero al usar CNCHI (el instalador de antergos) es cuando aparece la pantalla de esa manera?
También sería buena idea agregar una traducción al inglés de tu problema, aunque sea utilizando un traductor como google translate, así las posibilidades de que alguien que haya tenido un problema similar y entienda que tu también lo tienes ahora, pueda entender tu reporte, y así poder encontrale solución…
Como recomendación adicional (para este caso y posibles casos en el futuro), te dejo estos links.
Este te ayuda a saber como incluir “log files” (archivos que se crean al presentarse errores en el sistema).
y este es al parecer una comunidad en español para usuarios de antergos. Tal vez te sea de ayuda…
Que tengas buen día! : )
I would recommend you avoid updating “hunspell-es to hunspell-es_any” for now, maybe this will be fixed soon, but if you unistalled “antergos-common-meta” just like me to be able to update “hunspell-es”, then what I did may help you solve the problem.
Ok, so I decided to update “hunspell-es” as soon as I was notified there was an update, but by trying to do so, the system says “hunspell-es” need to be replaced by “hunspell-es_any”, you accept the change but then pacman says if you do so it would brake “antergos-common-meta” dependency with “hunspell-es”, so I decided to uninstall “antergos-common-meta” manually so I could update “hunspell-es” to “hunspell-es_any” using:
sudo pacman -R antergos-common-meta
and it got uninstalled without a problem, then, I used:
to update my system and everything went just fine, then I tried to reinstall “antergos-common-meta” but it cannot be installed due to a problem with the “hunspell-es” dependency I mentioned before.
so, to solve this what I did was find the PKGBUILD for the “antergos-common-meta” package in order to get it back, you can find it here:
so, now you need to open a new empty file in a text editor like kate and paste the PKGBUILD content in it, then save the file as PKGBUILD in a new folder (I recommend you save the file in a new folder, you can name it whatever you want, you can do this just to delete the whole thing after you are finished installing the package), next open a terminal where you saved the file and use the next command (no sudo required):
follow the instructions as with any other package and you are done, “antergos-common-meta” is back where it belongs.
After the installation is done, you can delete the folder where you save the PKGBUILD file.
Hope this helped you! .
It seems the system is working as it should (which doesn’t mean is working correctly), I still don’t know what the “dw_mac MIssing DT data” and the “pwm-lpss invalid resource” refer to, the first one seems to be the SD card reader, but I am not sure as it has never worked on linux, the second one seems to be related with power management, which is probably the cause the live USB cannot boot, but I am not sure, but since that was included in the kernel I haven’t been able to boot with kernel 4.10 or newer version.
Also when turning it off I get a message similar to this “Failed to wait for protocol: protocol error” like 6 times and then the laptop seems to get powered off normally, but I notices my desktop does the same thing, so it must be a kernel issue.
I still have no idea why my method worked, but it works, at the moment.
@schuenne Yes, it seems this kind of problem is linked to Arch based distros, I was only able to boot on Gentoo and another Arch based distro (a really ugly one, which I installed but didn’t boot), and yes, I tried many ubuntu based distros and they all booted, but they don’t work as “stable” as AntergOS does, at least on my laptop.
If you are installing the OS on an individual HDD or SSD, you can put you HDD or SSD from your Asus F553M on your Dell Vostro and Install the OS from there, then after finishing installation you can put your HDD or SSD back on yout Asus F553M and it may boot.
It worked for me, I have an Asus X553MA and it worked, I get a couple “warnings”, I suppose they are some kind of warnings, when booting, and some errors when turning the device off, but I suppose it may be a kernel issue, even so, it works just as good as it used to when I had the 4.9 kernel installed.
It may sound as an annoying thing to do, and it is, but that’s the easiest way I found to have my laptop running AntergOS once again.
@manuel Hello! and thanks for answering!
Well, right now it is working with the latest 4.15 kernel, but, as I mentioned, just because I installed on another laptop and then reinserted the HDD with the OS already installed, also doubt that it is a graphics card as it uses the intel integrated chip, and about other drivers, well, I don’t know, Everything is working fine, except for the card reader, as it has always been that way.
Well, I tried to boot using the USB live, used ISO and DD, but both have the same problems.
I added the kernel parameter mentioned in the X553MA Arch Linux article, also switched to Windows 7 OS option and added the kernel parameter again, but nothing, it just freezes. Also tried using the “secure configuration”, “no ACPI” and “No ACPI local” option for the kernel but still freezes, the later one gives me an error message but it freezes after that.
I guess the simplest and less annoying solution seems to be the one I used and that made the laptop boot, install on another pc or laptop and reinstall my HDD after OS installation .
Do you know if there’s any security problems by doing this? or any other “side effects”?
Right now I have notices several things that work different:
- It boots.
- A screen tearing problem is gone (seems it is using wayland, wich couldn’t be used before, but I haven’t made sure it is so).
- The keyboard works in a weird way for some keys, (I have to press it twice in order to make it work when using composite switch).
- It is unable to suspend or hibernate (freezes with black screen), which worked just fine with kernel 4.9 LTS.
- I get some messages that seem to be some kind of warning when booting, but it boots “normally”.
- I get several errors when powering off, which doesn’t seem to have any negative effects.
@joekamprad Yeah! maybe we could , another weird thing is that the UEFI configuration is pretty much the same as the default configuration, I just turned Secure Boot off and that’s it. Before the LTS kernel update I had the same configuration, after the kenel update I kept the same configuration and after my ¨experiment¨ I still have the same configuration, but Antergos may work or not depending on something unknown to me.
Another detail is that as suggested in the Arch Linux page for X553MA, I didn’t blacklisted the dw_mac modules, even so I get a message when booting about dw_mac but I found out it is a module for the SD slot in the X551MA that is missing, don’t know if that produced the same effect as blacklisting the module and that’s why I am able to get it to boot. Also I still keep the UEFI configuration to use the windows 8 as OS selection.
I guess I will try to see if blacklisting the dw_mac modules when booting on the live USB works and update the post.
