Boot stuck in ramdisk init after installing the Nvidia driver

Hello Garuda users. I recently switched to Garuda with a fresh Cinnamon installation. Everything seams to work fine until i try to install the Nvidia driver from the Garuda settings Manager.

So far I've tried adding the ibt=off kernel parameter with the same outcome.
I've read that it might take quite a while to boot after installation I've waited for about 30min with no change for either the video-nvidia-dkms or video-nvidia-470xx-dkms.
Bellow i post some logs. I am quite new to this so i would appreciate some suggestions as to how i could resolve this issue.

Done ...

Hi there, welcome to the forum!

Try

sudo pacman -S linux-headers linux-lts-headers

Edit: I keep the welcome :grinning: but I'm afraid a read the error message wrongly, and what I suggested won't help...

Problem 1:

==> ERROR: Missing 6.1.23-1-lts kernel modules tree for module nvidia/530.41.03.
==> ERROR: Missing 6.2.10-arch1-1 kernel modules tree for module nvidia/530.41.03.

This likely means that installed kernels and kernel headers do not match, you should make sure that you have headers for every kernel (and kernel for every headers package).


Problem 2:

/var/lib/mhwd/db/pci/graphic_drivers/nvidia-dkms/MHWDCONFIG: line 38: mkinitcpio: command not found
  Relevant software:       snapper NetworkManager dracut

For some reason the dkms installer is trying to rebuild the initramfs with the wrong tool (mkinitcpio was used until recently, but you already have dracut). How comes, I don't know.

> Successfully installed video-nvidia-dkms

Oh well... I guess dkms is trolling confused.


Problem 3:

(10/16) Checking for .pacnew and .pacsave files...
.pac* files found:
/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.pacnew
/etc/plymouth/plymouthd.conf.pacnew
Please check and merge

Most likely a non-problem in this case, but in general make sure to check the differences and apply them if it makes sense (ask if not sure).


I advise running garuda-update after installing the necessary kernel and headers packages, then report back any puzzling messages. Reboot afterwards and :crossed_fingers: .
Hopefully someone can make sense of #2, I don't really know.

Thank you for the replies!

As you proposed I tried to install the headers with:

sudo pacman -S linux-headers linux-lts-headers

after that i did:

sudo dkms autoinstall

for automatic dkms module install and proceeded with a restart.

After boot i run the Garuda update and install:

below I add the log of garuda-update:

System updated! šŸ§

Seems the DKMS installed. Gonna try and restart will update on the progress.

Edit 1: So far 22 minutes in still no result.
Stuck in:

Loading Linux linux-zen ...
Loading initial ramdisk ...
_

Might just revert to a recent snapshot if nothing changes after 30 min mark.

Edit 2:
Still, no change going to revert to the previous snapshot. Been stuck like that for 34 min.
Don't think this is a hardware issue and I think it shouldn't be that long. The worst part is not having any logs or info. Not able to determine if stuck or actually doing something.

reverted to post:

sudo pacman -S linux-headers linux-lts-headers

gonna search some more, will update if I find anything.

For this, maybe check:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Dracut#Early_kernel_module_loading
And then

sudo dracut-rebuild

Thank you!

Proceeded with creating the myflags.conf in the /etc/dracut.conf.d/
(The directory was empty don't know if it's supposed to be that way just stating the fact)
added to the file:

force_drivers+=" nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm "

Saved the file and followed with the:

sudo dracut-rebuild

with the output:

:: Building initramfs for linux-zen (6.2.10-zen1-1-zen)
dracut-install: Failed to find module 'nvidia'
dracut: FAILED:  /usr/lib/dracut/dracut-install -D /var/tmp/dracut.Vi3wY3/initramfs --kerneldir /lib/modules/6.2.10-zen1-1-zen/ -m nvidia nvidia_modeset nvidia_uvm nvidia_drm
:: Building fallback initramfs for linux-zen (6.2.10-zen1-1-zen)
dracut-install: Failed to find module 'nvidia'

I suspect this is due to the recovery point so i follow again with the install of the driver in the same manner with the log:

Done ...

followed by garuda-update
(no log because i pressed wrong buttons and the windows closed...)
Anyway followed again with the:

sudo dracut-rebuild

with the output:

:: Building initramfs for linux-zen (6.2.10-zen1-1-zen)
:: Building fallback initramfs for linux-zen (6.2.10-zen1-1-zen)

Seems like it finished with no errors. Gonna restart it and report back if it works again.


Edit 1:
Don't think I used the force_drivers part correctly...
I might have confused it and it supposed to be something related to:

dracut

Maybe something like:

force_drivers+=" dracut "

Don't really know please confirm.
(with the one I did on top of this reply it doesn't work so far)


Edit 2:
No change in 30 min reverting to the same point.


Edit 3:
Can't seem to find solution rn. Going to continue the search in the morning.
Successfully reverted to the previous snapshot and completed the garuda-update with the log:

System updated! šŸ§

Update on what I have tried:

I installed the lts kernel through the Garuda settings manager. It installed successfully restarted the pc and booted with it. Additionally I set it as a default launch option. the install nvidia-dkms still gives me the same error in the end:

/var/lib/mhwd/db/pci/graphic_drivers/nvidia-dkms/MHWDCONFIG: line 38: mkinitcpio: command not found

don't know if I should install it or how to safely do it because of the conflict with the dracut.
it seems that it is the way to go because the MHWDCONFIG file in /var/lib/mhwd/db/pci/graphic_drivers/nvidia-dkms/ explicitly states
mkinitcpio -P

Any ideas as to how to either modify the installer or how to resolve the issue?
I'm not that well versed in the linux driver configs.

I know even less, but that smells like a :bug: .
I confirm that file is the same on my box. It belongs to mhwd-db-garuda-git.
That said, I would have expected running sudo dracut-rebuild afterwards to work.
I think the other "problem 1" is still there.

Your install is recent, maybe check /var/log/pacman.log for traces of what could have gone wrong.
Considering

try booting -zen.

Is garuda-dracut-support installed?

No when it says that it is not found locally.

Going to reboot to zen.
and this is the pacman.log file:

(Link as it exceeds the char limit)

found some errors like:

any idea how to fix:

followed by the sudo dracut-rebuild which finished with no error.

Should I installing the dkms driver again?
Still think the installer will throw error with:

mkinitcpio

garuda-dracut-support

I meant the package, but it was a silly question of mine, dracut-rebuild comes from there.
I forgot to mention, I have not yet migrated to dracut because I planned to reinstall anyway, which I never found the time for.

All seems good with linux-zen, but try reinstalling pacman -S linux linux-lts (if you need them, else alternatively remove their headers).

Still trying to make sense of why mkinitcpio is being called.

Thank you again for the reply.

I am also trying to get my head around it new to dracut and Garuda in general.
Ill uninstall them when i get my nvidia problem solved. Might be wrong but i think it won't interfere with the install for now anyway while I'm running zen.

But i think without getting around that mkinitcpio so it works with dracut it will be stuck.

Also I got some logs from the boot. I got them from changing the messages boot option to Regular grub.

I think my wording was not clear, I'm not saying you should remove them, but make sure both the kernels and their headers are installed together, either both or none.
From the pacman.log it looks like you have their headers but not the kernels, maybe as a consequence of restoring a snapshot.

edit: correction, linux-lts is there :thinking:

For the dracut/mkinitcpio thing, I think for now running dracut-rebuild any time you see that MHWDCONFIG: line 38: mkinitcpio: command not found error should do.
I'd also try pacman -S garuda-dracut-support just in case (it won't hurt).
Maybe even "reinstall all packages" from the Garuda Assistant (assuming my "consequence of restoring a snapshot" theory is correct, that is).

What I did last time was:

  1. Install the nvidia driver through the garuda automatic installer in which I get the error.
  2. do garuda-update
  3. do dracut-rebuild
  4. restart to check if it works

Which doesn't work so far with neither of the kernels selected. One was installed by default and the other i installed through the Garuda Settings Manager -> Kernel

I might just reinstall fresh.
install the headers
do garuda-update
than the dracut-rebuild
nvidia install
dracut-rebuild again
and restart
