Oh no! Something has gone wrong.

Hello everybody,

I just wanted to install Blender to learn some 3D modeling (which did not work out because my graphics driver is not supported, but that's not the main issue here) and when I rebooted the following was shown:

wrong

I have to mention that for some reason the system did not shut down correctly before the restart. It was somehow stuck and just a black screen was shown so I had to press the power button several seconds to finish the shutdown process.

I am using dual boot with Windows 10 and Manjaro.

Here is some information about my system (I took this screenshot some time ago):

Might there be a quick solution to fix this problem or should I just reinstall the system?

Thanks in advance,

David

Please don't. Text information is way more practical when copy/pasted rather than screenshot.

Thanks, I will keep that in mind for the next time. But for now that's all I have because I can unfortunately not login and copy/paste.

What Gnome theme and extensions did you use on that machine?
When you see that oh no! go to TTY login there try to update.

I did TTY into it but the system is already up to date.

Not really sure what Gnome theme I was using. At least I did not change the theme that was installed from the beginning.
What are extensions?

Some plugins to the panel, I know from my short experience those extensions can cause problems as you have, can be something different.

I don't think I installed any plugins.

This might have lead to filesystem corruption. The following won't hurt to try:

  1. boot up your live usb

  2. launch gparted

  3. right-click on your system partition(s) and "Check". Apply the operations from the toolbar.

  4. when done, reboot

Hope this helps. If not one possible cause is eliminated.

Maybe the blender installed something what is causing this problem, you can check the log in
/var/log/pacman.log you will find what was installed.

All checks were successful.

OP would probably have a better experience with a handle on the gfx and/or mhwd ..

hey @david2 now that we have a working system .. can we look at a few things?

inxi -G
mhwd -li && mhwd -l

cuda is only for NVIDIA cards and only for some of them not for gaming cards, for professional cards like quadro.

Thats a bit odd.
If your nvidia card supports drivers like 440x .. then it makes sense you should be able to use PRIME.

If you want .. check trying this:

sudo mhwd -f -i pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime

(and restart)

Thanks for your time!
There were not problems during the installation or restart.

Great.
Lets check this:

glxinfo | grep 'renderer string'
prime-run glxinfo | grep 'renderer string'

PS

No problem, compa.

$ glxinfo | grep 'renderer string'
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GTX 650 Ti/PCIe/SSE2
$ prime-run glxinfo | grep 'renderer string'
OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GTX 650 Ti/PCIe/SSE2
