Pinebook Pro won´t boot either from eMMC or microSD
I was booting mrfixit debian for PBP - but makes sense that it doesn't have pacman etc to repair an arch linux installation.

I tried all morning booting Manjaro - most of the time I got some "authentication failure, automatic login failed". I also tried older images - xcfe-pbpro-20.06 and kde-plasma-pbp-20.08.

When running an image of kde-plasma-20.10 I get to go through the setup wizard, pbp reboots, manjaro spinner for some time.. I press esc and see this error message: "EXT4-fs error (device mmcblk1p2): ext4_check_bdev_write_error:215: comm systemd-hwdb: Error while async write back metadata"

At this point I don't even care if I need to do a clean re-install instead of trying to rescue my current system. But if I can't even boot Manjaro SD card, then I assume I can't easily do a fresh install either Undecided


I tried again with another SD card and now I'm getting this after reboot from the wizard
EXT4-fs error (device mmcblk1p2) in ext4_do_update_inode:5087: Journal has aborted
EXT4-fs error (device mmcblk1p2): ext4_dirty_inode:5853: inode #162587: comm systemd-sysuser: mark inode dirty error
EXT4-fs error (device mmcblk1p2) in ext4_dirty_inode:5855: IO failure

EXT4-fs (mmcblk1p2): Remounting filesystem read-only
EXT4-fs error (device mmcblk1p2): ext4_journal_check_start:83: Detected aborted journal

writing the mrfixit to the same card it boots
