I wish there was peace on earth.
Let’s see whose wish comes true first.

Btw, we wish as minimum that everyone post the garuda-inxi as text.

  • Format terminal output (including your garuda-inxi) as a code block by clicking the preformatted text button (</>) , or put three tildes (~) above and below the text

Man the entitlement is real. :eyes: I guess you don’t realize what a help vampire you sound like right now.


That is a “tutorial.”

If you need someone to read it to you, that’s a different thing.

I charge $200/hour for doing others’ research. Entitled little shitz pay up front.


Nah I don’t know how to Create those hooks. I’m a web dev not a OS Dev,

Without garuda-inxi this request will be moved to 412 Precondition Failed

I uploaded the inixi

This means your laptop is below the minimum requirements.

Aren’t we already at 5.27.10?

That guidance is appropriate for a system using mkinitcpio, not dracut. To set that up with Garuda Linux you will have to make a dracut module and build it into the initramfs.

I asked a chat bot to suggest an approach for you; here you go:

If you’re using dracut instead of mkinitcpio, you’ll need to create custom dracut modules to achieve a similar effect. Dracut is the default initramfs infrastructure used by many Linux distributions, including Fedora.

Here’s a general guide on how you could adapt the ArchWiki solution for an Acer Aspire 3 A315-56 to dracut:

  1. Create a Custom Dracut Module:

    You need to create a custom dracut module to perform the necessary actions. Create the module directory:

    sudo mkdir /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/99suspend-to-ram

    Inside this directory, create the following files:

    • /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/99suspend-to-ram/

      check() {
          return 0
      depends() {
          return 0
      install() {
          inst_hook pre-udev 00 "$moddir/"
    • /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/99suspend-to-ram/

      if [ -e "$RTC_FILE" ]; then
          EPOCH_TIME=$(date '+%s')
          if ! echo 0 > "$RTC_FILE"; then
              reboot -f
          elif ! echo "$((EPOCH_TIME + 2))" > "$RTC_FILE"; then
              reboot -f
          elif ! echo mem > /sys/power/state; then
              reboot -f

    Make both scripts executable:

    sudo chmod +x /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/99suspend-to-ram/
    sudo chmod +x /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/99suspend-to-ram/
  2. Update Dracut Configuration:

    Edit the dracut configuration file to include the new module:

    sudo micro /etc/dracut.conf.d/99-suspend-to-ram.conf

    Add the following line:

    add_dracutmodules+=" suspend-to-ram "

    Save and exit.

  3. Regenerate the initramfs:

    After creating the custom dracut module and updating the configuration, regenerate the initramfs:

    sudo dracut-rebuild

    This will rebuild the initramfs with the new module.

  4. Reboot:

    Finally, reboot your system to apply the changes:


This adaptation is a general guideline, and you may need to adjust it based on your specific system and requirements. Always make sure to back up important data before making changes to your system configuration.

I edited the command for rebuilding the initramfs to use Garuda’s dracut-rebuild command, and changed nano to micro but other than that I left it as-is. You can also use micro for creating the files mentioned (for example, sudo micro /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/99suspend-to-ram/

I have no clue if it will work or not. :grin: Good luck! :saluting_face:
