Can't get it started

13.2 64bit, was running fine for quite a while and then today… cannot get it going :frowning:

I can start it in recovery mode and the first “error” message I get is:
“Dependency failed for Network Manager, Wait Online”

followed by later on:
“Failed to start Login Service, Started wicked managed network interfaces”

and later on:
“Failed to start Bluetooth service”
“Failed to start WPA Supplicant daemon”
“Failed to start Avachi mDNS/DNS-SD stack”

after all this, things start and run OK (at least it seems so?)

but trying to login as normal fails miserably:’(

any suggestions?
gratefully received.

thank you

ps I suspect it might be something to do with my ancient Gigabyte motherboard Ethernet controller???
