Did I break my system?


So, I switched to linux, but not void. I ended up with Solus, after doing some thinking.

Well, solus is starting to give me some mysterious problems.

A while ago I got a journal rollback (yesyes, filesystem/kernel/hardware issue, I know). But I've also got other issues. Seemingly whenever I use mumble (1.3.0) and momentarily switch to a GTK app and return after, some widgets don't respond to my clicks anymore and don't seem to change on hover (most notably the text input box). Sometimes I also can't shut down solus via budgie. I can click the shutdown menu, it'll open; however, when I click on shutdown there's a 50/50 chance that the confirmation dialog appears, other times it just does nothing. Also, sometimes windows refuse to close. THere's also the issue with spotify that when I close it, it sometimes keeps on streaming music, until I manually kill it.

At bootup I sometimes get into emergency mode which (conveniently ) only is aware of /dev/sda1 (the EFI partition).

If I get a reply like: "reinstall", without a useful explanation on solus' forums, I'm going to switch to void. I do need to resolve an issue, before I can do that. My uefi sometimes does not start the screen (desktop user here), will the kernel do that for me? If it doesn't, do I need to do anything manually? If so, what?

sounds like Solus might need some work in keeping things straight, but it is not the only fish in the pond. Maybe some Solus people/users know about more of Solus, but yeah, the weekend is a nice day for fishing.

You gave no usable information, hard to tell anything. Probably it is a hardware related issue. Please check the logs, if there was something suspicious.
Also you can try to boot from a live cd, probably that works, or you can diagnose your hardware.

I did a full fsck of both my SSD (boot drive) and HDD (home drive), both came out ok.

After that I did some checking of the logs, and boy... gnome-calendar certainly messes up a lot.

that can be RAM or something else too. Or just your gnome installation is corrupted somehow.
messages related to gnome-calendar itself does not mean a lot (but again, would be nice to know more ...)
