While browsing with the Brave browser the entire system froze. ctl-F1 did nothing. Only choice was to manual power down and reboot. Reboots to the black screen of doom.
Error message… [FAILED] Failed to mount /sysroot (as below)
Boot live usb. and Endeavouros
Lenovo ideapad 3IML05
latest kde version 5
Installed with Galileo usb couple of weeks ago. BTRFS automatic.
Fired up live Galileo usb. Dolphin will not access device Get the following message in red box:
“An error occurred while accessing ‘endeavouros’, the system responded:Error mounting /dev/nvme0n1o2 at /run/media/liveuser/endeavouros: can’t read superblockon /dev/nvme0n1p2”
I’ve seen the back screen a few times. Before I would google around and try a few things and bite the bullet and just reinstall.
It’s getting frustrating and it seems the black screen appears more frequently.
Have been using Endeavour a couple of years. Always just cut my loses and reinstalled. Curious if this is standard procedure?
Is this a systemd issue, should I try grub on the reinstall?
Tried timeshift and snapper with the same results. I keep looking for a magic key to these.
For now the main question…accept defeat and reinstall .or. Is their a way to bring it back to life with some “hocus pocus magic potion”
Yeah, this looks like bad luck: filesystem corruption due to improperly shutting down the computer. This is one of the very few cases where reformatting the drive and reinstalling the OS is probably the best solution.
Regarding black screens, those can be troubleshooted, but not in parallel with filesystem corruption.
