I am on kernel 4.19 lts and KDE. I3-4150 cpu and vega 64 gpu, 16gb ram.
I updated may 27, using yakuake and pacman -Syyuu, saw no errors on the terminal, then shut down for the night.
This morning I am no longer able to get to either a desktop or a terminal without using recovery media. Currently posting from a 4.18 live usb.
I do sometimes see "recovering journal" or something like it flash by at the top of the screen, everything after is black, however.
I think I have successfully manjaro-chroot -a in the live usb, pacman has no updates to make and is up to date. mkinitcpio -P and a subsequent grub-update and reboot do nothing to solve the problem, but don't make it worse, either
Does anyone know what is wrong and how I may fix it?
