I am running Manjaro stable. When I turned on my computer today, I got normal startup messages, but then the boot froze at a blinking cursor. I tried multiple times but it kept sticking. I don't think it's an issue with my computer because my other dual- boot OS works fine. I can't run command-line diagnostics, but I do have access to the filesystem if there's a log file that would show the error. The SSD it's running on has 20GB free, so I don't think it's a space issue. Any ideas?
You are going to need to do this for anybody to help you out. There are simple instructions for logging in with Grub or a live usb. Did you try the failsafe grub menu item?
I got onto the TTYL2. Here are the outputs of
journalctl -p3 -b -1: https://git.io/vbN3Y
journalctl -p2: https://git.io/vbN32
journalctl -p2 -b -0 returns /var/log/faillog is either world writable or not a normal.
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old returns https://git.io/vbN3M
I guess you are running KDE, have you updated the system lately? Were you able to log in to a tty or did you use usb to boot and get the log files?
sudo pacman -Syyu
If you can get to a tty and login then your login manager must not be starting the kde session.
I got in through a TTY and ran startx, which booted KDE. I'm updating to see if that fixes the problem.
