I’ve not been having a great time of it lately with Silverblue. First, I noticed that firewalld was silently failing to start because of selinux-policy, so I opened this issue.
As you can see from the comments there, I ran
restorecon -Rv / as advised, and now I can’t boot into either of my ostree options at startup. A bunch of stuff got relabeled (including lots of stuff in
/sysroot), so I guess this could have something to do with it?
I also can’t seem to get into the emergency shell (with
systemd.unit=emergency.target) – I get prompted for the root password for it alright, but then there are some error messages that show up for less than a second (some start with "sulogin: ", and then it says something about “cannot execute shell”, and then seems to give up and try to fall back to the default target (which doesn’t work).
Does anyone have any suggestions? If I can’t get it fixed by tomorrow evening I’ll need to reinstall in time for Monday morning since it’s my work machine.
(unrelated, but relevant for silverblue users, toolbox also seems to be broken by the latest podman update).
Thanks for any help you can provide,
