Can't install nividia drivers and other problems

After trying to install drivers the arch wiki way, I realized that there is an option in settings for it. But when I try to use it installation fails and I get:

Done ...

Rsync and /sbin/blkid are definitively installed, yet still show up

Other problems:
-Cannot acces Firewall Configuration (I type in password but nothing comes up afterwards)
-Cannot remove preinstalled programs, keep getting (using Minetest game as example):

Failed to prepare transaction
target not found: mine

Should I use "pacman -Rns " for this?

Upgrade your system first

Then try again.
It will work after some tries

Garuda bricked after installing the drivers, now I have to reinstall it. Thanks for help anyway, I'll see if this happens again

Restore snapshot

Too late, I already reinstalled it

Something is wrong (ultimate gaming edition). I cannot acces the Firewall Configuration and Garuda keeps bricking after installing the drivers, even after fresh installation and getting things up to date.
Restoring snapshots also doesn't do anything at long run, garuda keeps freezing on first loading screen on normal boot


Maybe this too

Garuda is not responsible for bricking anything. Perhaps you need to educate yourself on what that term actually means. Here is the common definition easily found online:

Bricking is when an electronic device becomes unusable, often from a failed software or firmware update. If an update error causes system-level damage, the device may not start up or function at all. In other words, the electronic device becomes a paperweight or a "brick."

An electronic device that has actually been bricked is only fit for the refuse heap.

Choose your terms more carefully when you claim Garuda has damaged your system, or perhaps you'll wake up and find your Garuda forum account has been bricked one day. :wink:


language difference, Polish doesn't distinguish difference between whole device and software. Everything is fixed here by a solid kick and some vodka

Boi, you're talking to MacGyver of screwing things up. I recently tried using Tor and everyone called it DDoS, you're lucky that I still haven't overloaded whole internet by sheer use of stupidity


I enjoyed your response immensely. :+1:
