I had unresolved previous issues booting from recovery mode, now nothing seems to work and normal booting also gets stuck before the login. when loading this message appears:

Failed to start System Logging Service. See systemctl status rsyslog.service for details

from there it says it's active and running.

Connection through wifi, tethering usb and tethering bluetooth isn't working. with ip a no address shows up. I don't know if the two are connected.

any kind of help would be very appreciated

  • This is now the 3rd chainloaded question with only inconsistent references to the OS (Ubuntu/Xubuntu), no hardware specifications or something relevant. Please edit the question and provide relevant information, describe why you had nomodeset in the first place and what led to only booting in recovery mode, at least. – ChanganAuto May 15 at 20:18
  • sorry that's because I literally don't know what are relevant informations, aside from editing in Intel GPU, what else do I need to add? I am that useless, I don't know how I got nomodeset or what it is and the reason for trying to boot in recovery mode was my first issue 'xfce desktop environment not loading'. – killmenowplease May 15 at 20:50
  • Did you installed XFCE? – ChanganAuto May 15 at 20:59
  • no, it come with the pc when I bought it – killmenowplease May 15 at 21:01
  • Perhaps better to reinstall. – ChanganAuto May 15 at 21:03

my computer is a Dell latitude e6410, from bios setup (F12 at power-up) I deselected everything in the wireless switch section. bluetooth, then after rebooting also wifi reactivated. I repaired and upgraded from recovery mode of the actually only kernel correctly installed, the one with 'ii' initials for both linux-modules and linux-modules-extra dpkg -l | grep linux-modules

In all of this the 'Failed to start System Logging Service' message never disappeared.
