    Default black screen after instalation

    I just did a new installation with KDE, but the PC
    Starts and stops on the black screen offering:
    Code:
    give root password for maintenance
    (or press ctrl-D to continue):
    what can I do?

    Sorry, I couldn't wait and I logged in as root and typed
    Code:
    fsck.ext4 /dev/sda4
    Dozens of errors were presented and I asked to repair:
    sda4 is my home and
    after that the system worked
    But will this installation be reliable?

    Maybe, maybe not.

    My advice:
    • frequent backups
    • use smartd and/or smartctl to closely monitor the health of the storage device
    • regularly look for any system errors with journalctl and dmesg; for example:
      Code:
      journalctl -p 0..3 # shows warnings and errors only
    If you can, maybe do an identical install on a free disk/partition/virtual machine and compare the results.
