Filesystem mounted at '/' is not responding , Plasma Workspace

Hiii, Everyone out here !!

I've been using Garuda KDE Dragonized edition and I never encountered any issues until now. Whenever I try to log in and start using my computer. I am greeted with a system hang or I can say system freezed for a minute or more (after logging in with sddm). After that, the wallpaper shows up and a notification pops up saying 'Filesystem mounted at '/' is not responding (so I assume the whole filesystem is not responding). or else Latte dock having an issue, I'm unable to figure out.

Here is the output of inxi -Fx

I would really appreciate it If someone helps me out, Thanks In Advance !!

Hi there. Have you tried restoring the latest working snapshot?

I would suggest you to use some disk testing utility because that error usually means partition corruption/disk corruption or something related to it it would just allow us to rule out the possibility of a failing disk.

And yes google is your best friend'%2F'+is+not+responding

"After doing some more trying, I found that it seems caused by one or more telepathy-* package.

I downgrade all telepathy-* package to 19.12.3, while remains other kde applitions at 20.04.0, and this issue disappears."

No, I haven't restored any snapshots yet !

Any Testing utility u may suggest ??

To restore a snapshot:

As i said google how to "Check for disk errors in arch linux" and please read the links i posted

Check /etc/fstab for removed/wrong UUID HDD/SSD/NVMe ...
Press ESC on boot, to see the terminal output.


I Tried checking terminal output on boot, Everything is ok over there ...

And If u don't mind can u please check that screenshot, what is wrong ...

Even I reinstalled plasma, still having the same issues.

First, no screenshots from terminal.
Second, there nothing to check without

Is Everything Fine Here ??

Dual boot with Win.
So I can't help.

Maybe other user, so post fstab as text too, please.

  • First, check error status on your disk
  • Next, install iotop if you don't already have it installed and see if anything is heavily accessing your disk.

That error could indicate failing hardware or something is hammering your disk to the point where it can't respond.

Did you read the links i sent and tried the fix which fixed the issue for the OP of the link.

I did.

One of them referenced a problem that was fixed over a year ago and the other one had no solution......

I am sorry i didnt understand what you mean by this is it a problem?(Genuinely asking)

The telepathy problem was fixed over a year ago. So while I suppose it is possible this person is a version of telepathy-kde-integration-module from a over a year ago, it doesn't seem likely. Further, depending on how it is built, it may not even be possible to revert to a version that old at this point.


For me this error occurs regularly. Since my hard drive is at its end of stage, giving S.M.A.R.T. error, I assume this is what the reason is. I hope your hard drive is working good. If it is in a good state, you may have to defrag as well as balance the filesystem.

As you are advised, if you have restored snapshot and still have the same issue, then this error is much likely with either hard drive or filesystem.

Yep, One of the wiki says that the telepathy issue is probably fixed long time ago, So I don't think that would be my solution ... Thanx a lot for ur suggestion bruh ..
