@linuxlads Recent scenario ... booted my KDE Plasma box and instead of a desktop I get a black screen -- emergency mode terminal. Crap -- no idea why. Looking closer it says try "journalctl -xB" to view logs. I do this and spot the issue -- the bad FSTAB entry for the external drive that is not powered up. This time I was lucky ... when I do the "google my symptoms" panic I usually find a greybeard who knows some arcane terminal command grep blah blah -- how do they know where to start? RTFM?
