    Default Re: Unable to boot because of lack of memory?

    Can yo boot to a terminal? maybe in rescue mode in options for the boot selection???
    Hi gogalthorp,

    I am at a command line screen where it says:
    Code:
    GNU GRUB version 2.02
    Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB list possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions. ESC at any time exits.
    
    grub> -
    do I SUDO in?

    You are root at that point no need for sudo.

    follow instruction on page I linked to to clean up snapper

    No luck...

    Code:
    grub> snapper ls
    error:can't find command 'snapper'.
    
    grub> snapper
    error:can't find command 'snapper'.
    
    grub> snapper list
    error:can't find command 'snapper'.
    
    grub> snapper-zypp-plugin
    error:can't find command 'snapper-zypp-plugin'.
    My first version is 42.3, then upgrade to 15.0, then 15.1...could that be the reason why snapper is not in?

    Do you use BTRFS or other file system. snapper us only on BTRFS

    you said /var seems large maybe check there and see what is using space.

    Also do you ever log tot a GUI as root. this can damage files in your user /home

    I just use the default...

    you said /var seems large maybe check there and see what is using space.
    the large usage msg only appears yesterday, so I deleted some downloaded files (to my knowledge, these are all like personal files and not files that affect the system as they are all in the download folder) and tried to shut down and then back in...that is when I encountered the problems

    Also do you ever log tot a GUI as root. this can damage files in your user /home
    Not that I am aware of, could have months ago...

    But from now, what should I do, assuming it is not BTRFS...How do I check the var?

    Should I try the below? When I had a quick look through the file monitor yesterday, I thought I saw a lot of sda3...

    Code:
    grub> linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1

    He is at the grub prompt, openSUSE is not running at all at that point!
    He first must boot in single user mode, or he must use a rescue system to be able to use commands like snapper.

    At the grub menu, I tried
    Code:
    grub> ls
    (hd0) (hd0,gpt4) (hd0,gpt3) (hd0,gpt2) (hd0,gpt1)

    Any suggestions what I should do next?

    TIA!

    @by79:

    Forget GRUB – the system ain't booted – it ain't running …

    Let the system boot “normally” – in so much that, “normal” in this case is “no GUI” …

    Type <Ctrl-Alt-F1> – if you're on a Laptop, you may need to use the “Fn” key to get to “F1” …
    • At the (tty1) user prompt, login as the user “root”.
    • Use the Snapper commands mentioned below.
