Hello, past few shutdowns I have had endless scrolling of text and numbers. First couple of times I held down power button, just now I let it run for 45 minutes, no end in sight. Do these pics look familiar? It is scrolling by too fast to read, I was able to catch that the numbers were changing.
xfce DE, 2 things out of the ordinary: one, several other computers showed update available for the March 14 stable, this one did not, "nothing to do" even after loading all mirrors.
two, only because it seemed to coincide, I temporarily booted to another Manjaro through a usb drive. Not sure but I think this may have started next time I shut down OS on primary drive.
Something tells me I should keep my data backed up. The good news is that I'm in the process of migrating to both a different DE [KDE] and also a newer more powerful laptop. So, a fresh install will be involved, transferring only data and browser profiles. This xfce install is my most ancient of oldies.
