I was playing Dota2 like a Human, when openSUSE suddenly froze in the middle of the game. I waited for several minutes, then reseted the computer. However, oS refuses to start anymore, stuck in emergency mode. It says I should save a rdsosreport.txt and attach as a bug report, however I can’t reach that file from Windows. Apparently I can’t copy to other partitions from shell (???). I tried starting something from advanced options, but every other choice is doing the same thing. I use the 13.2 version.
In general Windows doe not do Linux after all Windows is the only OS in the world.
You need a live Linux disk to boot from to work on the Linux partition(s).
was that something you tried from advanced options the recovery mode??
You could try booting to the command line. At the grub menu press e to enter edit mode find the line starting linux. Go to the true end of that line (note it wraps). Enter a space and a 3 press F10 to continue boot. You should then get a terminal prompt to log in. Log as root. You would then have to use text commands to to trouble shoot
Another thing is press esc key immediately after selecting the boot option in grub this will list all the processes started and if any fail. Tell us what fails
Not that this could be a corrupted file system which does not let you mount certain partitions and if so probably best to run smartctl as root to check the drive since it may be in the process of failing
Okay, I’ve have done it, but in a noob way. I simply had my friend to burn a DVD, and put a drive into my computer. Since my /home directory was in a different partition, everything went back as before. Except I had to reinstall the programs, but their settings remained the same.
(On an unrelated note, the SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa steam seems to be fixed, as Steam now does have sound if I run it without it.)
