Re: [SOLVED] Kernel Panic - not syncing. No working init found

That should be  a symlink to /usr/lib (as should be /lib and /lib64) ... see the link in my other post.

That would be the difference
Should be confirmed by

$ pacman -Qkk filesystem

from within the chroot

Re: [SOLVED] Kernel Panic - not syncing. No working init found

What is the output of ( trying to find out how many symlinks are missing )

$ pacman -Qkk filesystem

reinstalling the filesystem will not fix it as that would require pacman to delete /usr/lib64 in order to create the symlink.
edit:
grammar "many are" should be "many symlinks are"
edit2:
Also do not just delete /usr/lib64 Is it empty?  If not please provide a listing for it.

Re: [SOLVED] Kernel Panic - not syncing. No working init found

@loqs yes I know, I have deleted the folder before doing this. It is a symlink now, but for some reason I still run into a kernel panic I am looking at what is wrong right now.

Still no copy and paste here sry though. The output of Qkk filesystem left only warnings about size mismatches for files like /etc/fstab which is expected.

Re: [SOLVED] Kernel Panic - not syncing. No working init found

$ pacman -Qkk

Look for missing symlinks, missing files,  size mismatches etc.  Please post the output if you can.
Edit:
Did you run `mkinitcpio` after fixing the first missing symlink?

Re: [SOLVED] Kernel Panic - not syncing. No working init found

Oh, yes I did forgot to... Sry for that.., I have however initiated a reinstall of all packages on the system, to ensure everything is like it should be. Will let you know if there is something else open. Thanks a ton for your help here smile

0. I have mounted /boot and /boot/efi and deleted everything.
1. Changed boot partition from /etc/fstab to point to /boot.
2. Reinstalled grub on my boot partition, reinstalled linux (4.10.2) and generated main grub configuration file.
Also, before all this I saw the posts mentioning /usr/lib64 so I did a check. I didn't have any /usr/lib64 directory so I reinstalled filesystem and now it's there.

Rebooted and everything it's back to normal.

Thanks for the support guys!!

Re: [SOLVED] Kernel Panic - not syncing. No working init found

There's been a number of people without /usr/lib64/. I'm guessing it's because of a updated that was --force'd. Don't do that.

I've done that just before this kernel panic.
I'll keep in mind to not do this anymore smile

Re: [SOLVED] Kernel Panic - not syncing. No working init found

Thanks for all your replies. Before updating there was indeed an issue with /usr/lib64. I then removed and recreated the symlink. But when I just verified (chroot), /usr/lib64 was gone. I recreated /usr/lib64 (ln -s /usr/lib /usr/lib64) and mkinitcpio afterwards. Now the system boots again!
