OS: Manjaro Cinnamon, Kernel 5.2.11-1
GPU: AMD Radeon R9 270x
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3550 CPU @ 3.30GHz
Dual booted with LinuxMint 19.2, Kernel 4.15.0-70-generic
I tried to install DaVinci Resolve. First with the official linux file provided on the makers webpage - didn't start. Second with the AUR package. It didn't start up either. So I went into the terminal and looked for some error. It lacked stuff. First I installed Qt4. After that it said it needed "libcudart.so.10.0". After a bit of research I found "Cuda" and "Cuda-10.0". I installed the first one which brought no solution and cancelled the installation of the second one (both from AUR). Regarding DaVinci Resolve nothing changed. Steam on the other hand only showed black fields. No more shop, no more library.
I restarted the PC and got "end kernel panic - not syncing: vfs: unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)" as message. I tried to fix this problem by
- installing grub with "Boot Repair"
- rescuing the MBR with "Boot Repair"
- starting different kernel versions with "Super Grub 2" as well as the advanced settings in Grub
- using a Timeshift Snapshot through chroot in a live-usb-version
- changing the "Hooks" in grub.config (or something)
- remounting the partition
- editing the boot commands from the Grub by pressing "E" on the relevant mark
By trying to fix the problem the messages I got when booting changed a bit. The outcome didn't. Manjaro doesn't boot. Some different kernels don't crash immediately but show a black screen with a small white line in the top left corner for ages.
When booting Manjaro regularly it shows me the message
"early console in decompress_kernel
Decompressing Linux... Parsing ELF..._" for maybe 0.25 seconds before it automatically restarts the PC.
Hoping for Cuda to bring some necessary libraries with it was a bad decision.
I'm greatful for any tips.
