I was heartbroken today to find my installation entirely messed up. There were disk errors that I fixed with
fsck from a thumb drive boot.
This was all after an update and a channel switch. I can go back to my old channel’s version, but then I lose some of the crucial stuff that I needed to update for.
at first it just hung on startup. a few minutes of small white cursor on a black screen.
now opening any windows besides the terminal and it just hangs for a really long time. qutebrowser won’t load. chromium takes forever to render two windows, but once its up I can seem to run it a bit, but I’m not getting too adventurous.

It’s a Thinkpad T495.
any other info I can provide? any leads?
