Reinstalling my system, clean install of OpenSuse 42.2, but then at boot, after passing grub and kernel selection, it logs into the emergency shell.
Fokkow instructions in shell, give root password, and look for errors from logs using systemctl -xb
It turns out that it was not able to mount /home
Checked /etc/fstab and the filesystem type was marked as unknown.
Edited to ext4, save, reboot, and Presto!
