Could you post your terminal output of this:

Which kernel are you using?

when i boot it shows me this error message saying failed to mount biinderfs. but when i manually mount it it works.

I hope you have entered everything correctly into fstab & /etc/tmpfiles.d/anbox.conf ?
Please recheck your steps.
Rest I don't see any problem causing it.

ok did i do something wrong in the fastab config here is what it looks like.

this is the fastab one

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may
# be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if
# disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system>             <mount point>  <type>  <options>  <dump>  <pass>

UUID=a9580fab-06f1-42bc-8c6e-8ed3c2caad41 /              ext4    defaults,noati>


none                         /dev/binderfs binder   nofail  0      0

d! /dev/binderfs 0755 root root

this is the /etc/tmpfiles.d/anbox.conf one did i do some thing wrong

Yes, you post a picture from a text file.


fixed it XD i just it wouldnt let me select every thing interminal XD

Remove the #

it make text big

or just use the preformatted text with ~~~ in first and last line, terminal output between.


Would you mind formatting your reply correctly?

Format all terminal output as preformatted text (or select text and press ctrl + E ), as SGS has pointed out.

Rest, from what I can understand, things seem to be okay.

Edit: Also, would you post the output of sudo mount -a after a reboot without mounting binder.

It's getting late in India, I will be able to help tomorrow only now

ok tnx im new so i dont know this things

ow sry it was late where i live then so i didnt se this but canu still be able to help me here is the out put.mount:

mount: /etc/fstab: parse error at line 11 -- ignored
mount: /dev/binderfs: must be superuser to use mount.

Why do you use ext4?

Please post your inxi -Faz

yah just leave it at this point i will just accept anbox dosent work for me tnx for all you guys help and sry for your troubles.

Didn't you use sudo?

BTW you could install Garuda Linux and then try installing anbox?
I am not being persuasive. But I too switched to Garuda from Manjaro and I didn't regret it!

ya i know garuda is hands down one of the best distro i ever tried every thing is pre installed wine is pre configured its so beautiful also it has a great community . i was using the gaming edition one but my potato pc couldnt handle it things kept crashing b/c of ram shortage and youtube buffer was insanely high at boot it used up 2gb of ram and i dont have a good pc its preety low end 4gb ram coreI2 and 80mb of vram so i had to remove it i tied the lxqt one but it also used 1.6gb of ram on boot.but even in the gaming edition one games run very smoothly even with
high ram usage.
But i started using linux full time b/c of garuda linux i saw how beautiful it is and how well it run windows apps and games. but i had to go with a light weight distro like manjaro xfce.


Your topic is confusing. "Manjaro"?? This is the support forum for Garuda
