Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

Hi Guys!
Im very new to linux and Im in big trouble.

After rebooting I got this messages:
    [FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
...
    [FAILED] Failed to mount /boot/efi.
...
    [DEPEND] Dependency failed for Local File Systems.
    Welcome to emergency mode!

after logging in as root I wrote this command:
    # journalctl -xb   
and after a lot of white lines there were some red ones:
    ...
    Failed to lookup alias 'vboxdrv' : Function not implemented
    ...
    Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
    ...
    Failed to mount /boot/efi.
    ...
    Dependency failed for Local File Systems.
    ...
    Failed at step EXEC spawning /bin/plymouth: No such file or directory
    ...
The last thing I did before rebooting is installing laptop mode tools and made
    # pacman -Syu
If this information is in any help, I have dell 7520 laptop and I installed
hybrid graphics as it is written in the Wiki.

This is the second time  have this problem, the last time I reinstalled the Arch,
but it comes back like it is some ghost that hunting me.

Please   H E L P !!!
Sorry for the long post and thanks for reading.

You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen.

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

Could you post the actual output of

journalctl -xb

and not just a few selected lines that don't say a lot on their own? Put the output in code tags, please.

Take a look at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ne … figuration and you should be able to get online.

and how to cut/paste the journalctl, I be more than happy to .

Just use this to redirect the output of journalctl to a file (named "output" in this example) like this

journalctl -xb > output

more on pipes here: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prog-Intro-HOWTO-4.html (it's part of a nice bash howto by the way).

Edit: yes, it's a nice howto, but it doesn't explain the ">", I'll go find some info and update my post.

Edit 2: Here it is: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prog-Intro-HOWTO-3.html

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

That is not a pipe, it is a redirect.

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

I managed to create the output file with the journalctl infomation on it, but I cant get the internet connection.
In the https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ne … ice_Driver
I get stuck on the Device Driver, after I write

$ lspci -v

there is no kernel modules in the ethernet controller section.
I tried to insert usb memory stick, but the computer do not recognize it.

So I have the file but I cant do noting with it.

How have you tested this? With 'lsblk', lsusb or similar programs?

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

Hi
Im trying to put the output file, file that was created with

journalctl -xb > output

to the usb stick. After the command

# lsblk

it shows that the system is recognized the usb stick as /dev/sdc1. So I make this commands

# mkdir -p /mnt/myusb
# mount -t vfat -o rw,users /dev/sda1 /mnt/myusb

and the system replies with

mount: unknown filesystem type 'vfat'

the usb is actually a FAT32 device. Also, after

# blkid -o list -c /dev/null

I get the table of all devices and what I saw in the first line was

/dev/sda1                      vfat                     (not mounted)

the /dev/sda1 is the boot partition, I have UEFI motherboard and during the install I did wrote this lines

# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi

maybe it has something to do with the total system disaster.
I also remembered know that before the last reboot dolphin didnt recognized the usb stick. I found this post about it https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 3#p1099423 it might be connected.

Re: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules

Did you install something before the reboot that ended in a disaster (a new kernel maybe? check /var/log/pacman.log for more info)? It looks like you have some serious issues with your kernel modules.

Since you can't mount the USB stick, you can either try and reformat the stick and create an ext2 file system this time (or whatever file system you happen to have for your mounted partitions), or you could just boot from a live cd (you should get internet running that way, too, and you could check for the necessary driver module for your NIC) and try booting the USB stick with the vfat file system.

That step is necessary and should not be the cause of your problems.

That post is connected to your situation before that reboot, yes. Unfortunately it doesn't help us much in the current situation.
