Crash after login

Hi to everybody,

sometimes, after the login, my laptot crash with a black screen and the mouse icon on the ground (it looks like that the system doesn't start). Especially when my USB wireless mouse connettor is insert in the USB port.
Sorry for my terrible english.

Regards.

Ground control to Major Tom...

What happens if you hit ctrl-alt-f2 at the same time?  Do you get a login prompt?  If so, you could log in and use journalctl to view the logs

Re: Crash after login

Re: Crash after login

I would guess that you don't have virtualbox-guest-dkms installed.  If you're trying and failing to load the virtualbox modules I would assume that means they're not getting rebuilt when a new kernel comes out.

Just a guess

Hi,

yes, there are some problems with the DKMS modules and the kernel headers:

Re: Crash after login

You'll need to install the kernel headers pkg (# pacman -S linux-headers)

The modules support multiple kernels - thats why the headers pkg is not a hard dependency.

The following command should install the headers and then re-install, then build, the modules via dkms

pacman -S linux-headers virtualbox-guest-dkms

Re: Crash after login

With stock kernel you do not need to use dkms. With dkms kernel updates take forever and I soon stopped using it...

How do the virtualbox modules get updated without dkms?

Well, thats much easier.  Thanks!

Ground Control to Major Tom - you just need the virtualbox-guest-modules-arch pkg

Re: Crash after login

Bad news guys. I've some errors again. During the bootstrap:

 systemd-modules-load.service loaded failed failed    Load Kernel Modules  

Sometimes the O.S crash during the bootstrap and ctrl-alt-f2 doesn't work.

I've also a problem with the Image Viwer "Ristretto". Infact tumbler is installed but thumbnails doesn't work.

Thank you for the support,
