[Solved] Multiple Strange booting issues

My system has a few docker containers that for a while now won't start at boot, and so I figured I would tackle them yesterday.  Well I ran into a couple of strange isues after working on it.

First thing I did was update all packages and reboot.  Well, after doing that, I got dropped into a root emergency shell.  after a half hour or so, I found out that the issue was with my fstab.  specifically, it's the non-system xfs drives that I can mount fine in the OS, but for some reason it breaks startup.

The second issue came when I found my way around the first problem.  docker.service was enabled in systemctl, so I disabled it and enabled it again.  Now, when I enable it, gdm never starts, and I can't ctrl+alt+f5 to a tty either.  However I can still ssh into the machine.  The tty gets stuck at "Scanning for Btrfs fileysstems."

So I have 2 questions.  First, what is wrong with my fstab, and has anything changed that would cause it to break? It was working fine for a few months.  Second, where should I look to find out what docker.service is doing to stop my computer from booting up completely?  Thanks in advance!

Check the journal if it is not https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=238554 please post the journal from a boot that reaches the rescue shell.

Thanks for that link seemed to resolve my fstab issue.  The weird thing is that I was only having issues at first with the non-lvm disk, and the lvm ones were ok, until I decided to write this post.  That said, I'm still having the issue with gdm not loading, and now this time when I disabled docker.service, im still stuck at "scanninf for btrfs filesystems"

Re: [Solved] Multiple Strange booting issues

ok......... so I re-enabled docker.service again since I was having issues either way, and now all of my issues are gone.  I swear I didn't do anything different than I had been except post this question.  Thanks again for that link to the lvm issue
