[SOLVED] Periodic command scheduler failed to start.

Post by yisak1127 »

After installing Arco Linux d with the cinnamon desktop and light DM I reboot I see the grub page.

After the grub page it goes to the page where it shows the version of arch that's it starting then it says failed to start periodic command scheduler then it goes to the black page where you're supposed to enable your display manager.

After I enabled the display manager and reboot it goes past the grub page again and get stuck on the black screen that has in the top the starting version 247.2-1 Arch it says again failed to start periodic command scheduler and it just stays stuck there.

Help please.

When I google it - it seems to point to cron

1. did you install cronie?
2. did you install arcolinux-cron-git?
3. is there anything in the folders /etc/cron.d or /etc/cron.daily ... hourly monthly weekly

ps. switch to sddm to see if it is lightdm related

Code: Select all

sudo pacman -S sddm
sudo systemctl enable sddm -f

I tried sddm and it still didn't work.

I have both cronie and arcolinux-cron-git installed.

Is there a way I can disable the display manager because after I enable it I get stuck before the boot Pac-Man screen so I can't access any of my commands unless I redownload the whole thing.
