Booting and input issues after update

After running garuda-update today, on boot, the system was hanging indefinitely (I believe on "Accessing RAM", second line in the boot screen). After several restarts, I managed to get to the login screen. My keyboard did not work at all, including when trying to access terminal. The mouse did, however. On restart, I received:

Device descriptor read/64, error -110
Device descriptor read/8, error -110

I restored snapshot from before update, and I am able to login and my keyboard works. The problem was replicated when I ran the update again. So far, the solution is to not update, but finding the source of the bug might allow me to update somehow. Please let me know if I should post any outputs, and I'll add it to this message.

Apologies if this is a bit incoherent; Am very ill and on some hefty medications.

Please, post your garuda-inxi.
Post also as text, the log when you do garuda-update, just copy and paste here, but do not update, you know :slight_smile: .


Sorry, I was absolutely zonked and forgot to add those. Feel better today, so hopefully I can follow basic instructions lol.

Try removing splash from the kernel boot parameters.
There are several recent topics about it.
It's not necessarily your same issue. You managed to log-in and experienced a different problem. But you never can say...
If it works and you want the plymouth splash screen back now (before the issue is fixed upstream), you'll have to install plymouth which will replace plymouth-git, which seems to be the culprit.

If I just uninstall plymouth-git and install plymouth, will it stay that way on updates? Do I add the following line to /etc/default/grub?

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash rd.udev.log_priority=3 vt.global_cursor_default=0 systemd.unified_cgroup_hierarchy=1 loglevel=3”

We still don't know if that's your problem, so I suggest that you first test the removed splash on a single boot (not permanent).
This should be done when your system is updated, so unbootable, of course.
When you are in the grub line that you want to use, press button E, go to the line starting with linux and remove splash, then CTRL+x
If it works (you can boot), you can easily set this as permanent with the Garuda Boot Options tool in the Kernel parameters field. Or, at that point, you can replace plymouth-git with plymouth and not remove splash, since we have a confirmation that you have the same issue, so the same solution(s) work.


Fixed on the single boot, went into boot options and made permanent. Restarted to double check, still works. I have two garuda boot options in the grub menu now, but it's not a big deal. Thanks so much!
