Boot Issue (NOT the grub one)

Hi guys,

since an update last week I get errors during the start of arch, that say the hibernation device and an other device couldn’t be found and that I’m being dropped into an emergency shell.

When I choose to boot into fallback initramfs in the boot menu, there is no problem and I can access my system.

Can we see the full output from that error even if you need to take a picture of it?

Can we also see the contents of /etc/fstab and the output of lsblk -o name,type,fstype,label,mountpoint,size,uuid

Full output during startup:

Starting version 251.4-1-arch
ERROR: resume: hibernation device 'UUID=271a7211-3afd-4f33-9b10-da50647b7e1e' not found
ERROR: device 'UUID=53174732-eeec-4bc4-a194-29219bc01a97' not found. Skipping fsck.

You are now being dropped into an emergency shell.

Content of /etc/fstab :

# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a

# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

That is odd. I wonder if your initramfs is missing the drivers for you nvme drive.

If you run sudo mkinitcpio -P and reboot does that fix it?

Yes, this did the job. Thank you!

Now I have the issue that every other restart my desktop settings (two monitors) are resetted.
