i get a "emergency mode" message when trying to boot up. pressing enter does nothing but produce another instance of the message. ctrl+D does nothing. nor does ctrl+alt+f2.
The only way to poke about my files is to use a live environment.
i do get the grub menu, which lets me pick kernel and timestamps ect, but using another kernal does not change anything and my timestamps come up with a "path do not exist". I know i have made timestamps recently using timeshift, and deleted older ones, but i dont see where they are saved.
i have not changed anything in fstab.
what outputs are needed from my live environment to help fix this?
If you install multiple desktops as evidenced from your other recent thread you're pretty much looking to have problems. Generally if you install your system in a non-standard manner you're on your own.
i am very open with what i have done and dont want to play no sort of victim claiming to be helpless in all cases of own cause.
Maybe you miss judge and assume i know less about what I am doing and not correlating the right things.
Is it wrong to ask you look at this thread as a separate issue to another i have made? There is no where else i can ask this and if me confusing you with 2 posts will stop any and all aid with what I think to be a separate issue then i will be stuck for a long time.
i could do a full fresh install of garuda and still ask the question: how do i add a new drive to my system?
of course, i have tried lots myself, and in amongst my fiddling i have come across this particular issue even after reverting all mods to fstab. Maybe someone explaining to me that when this (apparent common error message) comes up but does not give you the option to go to your pc though a terminal, that there is "x issue with your file [here] and [there]" and i would be on my way to doing what i want to do, and thats add more storage to my system
this issue, if you must know, was happening before even touching DE's.
And from a fresh install i still wouldnt know how make the boot menu show me the prober list of fallback files from timeshift. as it stands and ever has, they're not right.
im not taking any help for granted and best i can pass it on
doubt it. It boots as expected- apart from an oddly large but low-resolution spashscreen- when all i have is my boot drive mounted at /run/timeshift/backup. when i change anything to do with my drives, its upset.
