My laptop is configured for dual boot. I can boot Windows 11 or by going into the boot loader (GRUB) I can change the operating system to be booted. Alma Linux is on a solid state drive. The drive worked fine on my desktop and on the laptop for many months. Although it continues to work on the desktop, it comes up in emergency mode on the laptop. My directories and files are all intact. I’ve tried a variety of tricks to no avail.
An update to the laptop from Dell or from Windows must have compromised something, but I have no idea what. Help would be appreciated! Thanks.
As a new user I’m not allowed to upload files. What is pasted below is the contents of the /var/log/messages file from January 31. I hope this is helpful. I did find two other log files. One is a boot.log. The other is obtained when I boot Alma into emergency mode. The system says to “enter journalctl -xb to view system logs.” I could provide those if you think they would be useful.
Whoops! Pasting the log file into this box generated the following error message:
Multiple errors occurred: 1) Body is limited to 32000 characters; you entered 195491. 2) Sorry, new users can only put 2 links in a post.
I had no links, so I don’t understand that part of the message. What to do?
