Installing another display manager and then rescue mode

Hello, I proceed by this manual on wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/display_manager and then after reboot I got rescue mode and error:  "Failed to start default.target:Operation refused, unit may not be isolated."
So I restored the symbolic link and it still doesnt work. Can somebody help or I have to reinstall arch? sad

Re: Installing another display manager and then rescue mode

you could try executing

systemctl isolate graphical.target

If that doesn't work, try systemctl isolate multi-user.target , which should transfer you to a console login.


edit

re-installing is rarely needed on arch, but you may have done something wrong in setting up the display manager.
which DM did you try to enable ?

Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.

Re: Installing another display manager and then rescue mode

systemctl isolate graphical.target - it writes me the same error
systemctl isolate multi-user.target  - transers me to console login.
So what now ? I reinstalled it, but it still doesnt work.
What's more, I installed DM, which worked for me two days before.

Re: Installing another display manager and then rescue mode

Darkhunter,
could you add some details (or ask sheep to do it) about the solution you found ?

That will help other people with a similar problem.
