I can't seem to figure out the issue, I tried entering into an tty but it didn't work.
After I choose Garuda from the GRUB menu, it only shows a black screen after showing two lines of console output (not errors), sometimes I also get to see a splash loading screen that says press esc to show textual output, but it doesn't work. The backlight is on in the black screen. I tried all the commands in the pinned post like entering through a chroot and garuda-update'ing it, but that didn't do anything too...
Please help, I am out of ideas....

Did that, didn't work....

Also, dkms command not found

did you run? (with the sudo)?

sudo dkms autoinstall

1 Like

I did, I ran the command in chroot, so I was already root user, but I did try running with sudo.

The issue was command not found

dkms status

if missing

pacman -S dkms

Live USB won't even boot with open source drivers,

A start job is running for automatic driver installation via MHWD (be patient!) (18min 57s / no limit)

What if you wait just a little longer? :joy:

The thread also contains more info about what your issue might be.
