It’s super late/early, I just woke up, so maybe that’s the reason why I can’t find the password for the live user sudo password. Or maybe I’m just stupid.
My system froze today while running updates and my dracut boot entries were gone when I restarted, only allows boot into UEFI. I’m trying to fix this by chrooting with my EOS install USB. However, I don’t know/remember the live user sudo password.
Correct, but I think there’s something you need to do specific to a btrfs partition; I don’t use btrfs, but I do seem to recall that there’s something different that must be done. I might be wrong on that, though.
Unfortunately it’s getting late, and I’m too sleepy to look it up and check for you. Sorry.
sudo mount /dev/nvme0n1p2 /mnt -o subvol=@
sudo mount /dev/nvme0n1p1 /mnt/efi
sudo mount /dev/nvme0n1p3 /mnt/home
sudo arch-chroot /mnt
Then I had to remove pacman db.lock, after which I could fully update the system. Then, just to make sure I ran reinstall-kernels so dracut would rebuild everything. Then my system was able to boot into my system again.
Thanks for help everybody. I’ll mark this as solved.
I suppose there’s multiple ways of achieving the same goal? I’m not using grub. I used to have grub, but during recent reinstall I chose systemd + dracut as the way to go. I was a bit confusing to set up kernel parameters and stuff like that at first.
