My EndlessOS is unbootable. If I try to boot normally, it hangs on the second splash Screen (1st: Acer, 2nd the infinity symbol for EndlessOS). I forcedly switched the notebook off and retried booting two times without any Change, then, during the third boot attempt, I hit F12 for getting verbose boot messages. I succeeded in making some screenshots with my mobile phone, which I include here: they were taken as can be seen in the file names at the local time
There are several ugly error messages and finally it is stuck in an endless (!) loop tryimg and failint to Start a service:
Failed to start Accounts Service
I cannot attach the eos-diagnostic log file since it does not boot. If it makes sense, I would be able to boot another Linux from USB (Q4OS, yet another Debian Bullseye derivate), I can offer to do that and I might be able chroot into EndlessOS file system to create the eos-diagnostic, but on the one hand, I don’t know, if this makes sense and on the second hand I would need some help in doing that.
Any help in repairing is welcome. As noted, I could boot another Debian for file system repair. I recently (see How do I add myself to the group input?) duplicated the input group in
/etc/group, but I rebooted several times since then without apparent problems, so I doubt that this might have caused the boot problem.
