Can not boot after install

I rebooted and it said something about the kernel, it went by fast.
I chrooted and ran sudo pacman -Syu
I don’t want to run yay as I’m root now.
The computer seems to load, goes to the screen that says kerne loading, ramdisk loading and then I get a cursor and it gets stuck there.
I’m on the live USB.
Any hints?

An idea of the hardware would help.

  • Xorg log
  • journalctl from the failing boot

?

Sorry guys, I’m having internet issues in my house, I couldn’t get online.
Is there a way from chroot I can downgrade the kernel?

Not sure how to get these.

eos-log-tool should be easy for doing that.

I’m in live mode though USB.

You can arch-chroot:

https://discovery.endeavouros.com/system-rescue/arch-chroot-for-bios-legacy-systems

Yes, I know how to archroot into the system, but what do I do after?

Run eos-log-tool? :wink:

Or if that is not possible, then terminal commands like:

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | eos-sendlog
sudo journalctl -b -0 | eos-sendlog
sudo journalctl -b -1 | eos-sendlog

and show the returned URLs here.

Ah, sorry I got confused. I have run it. What should I save?

It seems to be running from live mode, I chose it from the menu, entering eos-log-tool into the terminal brings up an error

  • Two first journals
  • Xorg log

Then select two last ticks and show the URLs here.

then use the terminal commands above.

give pacman -Qs nvidia
looks like you are using latest NVidia driver on legacy GPU ?

I updated it a few times, I have no need for Nvidia in this laptop, not sure how it got there.

[root@archiso /]# pacman -Qs nvidia
local/libvdpau 1.4-1
    Nvidia VDPAU library

so no Nvidia drivers installed … i would say that the installation is not cleaned up or you show the logs from LiveISo and not from chroot. because LiveISO has Nvidia Drivers…
