Hero to Zero


Good afternoon, everyone!

Last week I was on top of the world. I'd set up Arch Linux with a Gnome DE on my Surface Pro. I'd installed a few apps, was getting to grips with the file structure and CLI. I'd also begun trying to add 'Android Emulator'.

This morning it all came crashing down with 'Failed to start Load Kernel Modules'.

My research makes me think I've got a broken Symlink. I have no idea what that is or how to mend it.

Suddenly I realise I know nothing. All I'd done was follow instructions like a parrot with little idea what they mean.

I'm fascinated by what I've learned so far and appreciate the power and flexibility of the command line but think maybe I've missed a few fundamental lessons.

I'm hoping to find Elders with the kindness and patience to show me basic ropes?

Anyway, have a fantastic day and I hope to hear back from someone!

Ciao

Thanks Ondoho!

After looking around the site I can't find the answer I'm looking for so I'm just about to post my question. I think the Newbies section is the most suitable.

That already puts you miles ahead of many posters here at LQ.

To paraphrase Plato, the wise man knows that he knows nothing.

What else accompanies that line:
'Failed to start Load Kernel Modules'.

Anymore error output?

I don't have Arch installed, but check log files.
In Debian their located on "/var/log". Look for kern.log or syslog.
