Boot does not go beyond "status accounts service"


#1

Hi all I installed Archlabs on an Acer Aspire one computer of only 2G RAM. After installation, the boot stops at the “Status Acconuts Service” line. Where did I go wrong? Can a solution be found?


#2

Hi @sao. What Acer Aspire One model do you have?


#3

I would post output from this command in terminal;

inxi -Fxz

Might help .


#4

Aspire One D270-26Ckk CPU Intel Atom N2600 1.60 GHz


#5

I reinstalled several times. During the installation it signaled ERROR b43-Firmware and broadcom-wl impossible to satisfy the dependency.


#6

I would try to remove b43-Firmware and broadcom-wl , update system , then reinstall these 2 packages @sao .

Would be easier if you post results from the pos I did above concerning hardware.

Edit: rephrased 1st paragraph


#7

I can not even get to the desktop startup. How can I remove and reinstall packages?

@sao I’ve been reading this:
