I am stuck in the rootfs console and the commands for /sbin/init do not work

Hello @AgentS,


I have read. OK!

Hello @tbg

OK, I will not ping them. Sorry for my behaviours because I am autistic and deaf-born.

Hello @AgentS again!

Please, let me tell what happened now.

I installed the Manjaro 18.0 Beta 5 KDE Full. I found /boot/efi in the list of mount points during the Partitions step. I installed. Everything worked. The orange Manjaro EFI appeared.

Finally, I followed your step and ran all these commands:

$ sudo grub-install --removable --recheck 

[sudo] password for gusbemacbe: 
Installing for x86_64-efi platform.
Installation finished. No error reported.

Alright and all OK?

I received the notification of Octopi that there are new updates. Should I update now?

Do not update via Octopi the last update was problematic and best done from the tty. That is the non graphical command prompt (terminal).

It seems your issue is solved. Have a nice time!

Be sure to credit @AgentS with the solve.

OK, thank you, @tbg and @AgentS. Just the last two questions:

Can I install yay to install some application and install any applications (pacman -S any-app) I need for working? Or better I wait for the next updates?

Can I remove many unnecessary applications or do I have to wait?

Update first.

Update via terminal instead of Octopi? Or do I have to wait for the next update?

Syu or Syyu? For not breaking sbin.




Will get you to a tty.


sudo pacman -Syyu
