Unable to boot after update, eopkg rollback destroys desktop environment

Fri Nov 09, 2018 7:12 pm

Hi,

I need your help with reviving my Solus from before the update and recommendation on the next steps.

After installing the latest updates visible in the photos in the link below, I could not log into the desktop environment at all.
Only got a small blinking cursor.

Once rolled back to the version from before the update via TTY and rebuilding the database, ususconf -f, rebooting a few time, I can log into the desktop environment but hardly anything is working. Struggled to get the mouse cursor, once any window is open it cannot be minimalized, closed. It opens in full screen regardless of the taskbar etc. blocking the system from the usage. No reaction on HDMI cable input.

Could the cause be an update of nvidia-390-glx-driver-modaliases ?
If so, could you please help to fix?

Please find all of the details in the photos below.

Why don't you try reinstalling solus and check if the problem persists? Can you still access the file manager? If you can still access it, make a backup of your files before reinstalling.

Hi,

Do not want to reinstall as it would mean hours of setting up the system to the way it was before. It would not be a solution to the problem.
Luckily, dear sunnyflunk is there to help.

The issue is being solved and tracked in: https://dev.getsol.us/T7179

Thanks!
