Garuda Boot options stuck (Dr460nised KDE)

I opened up Garuda Boot Options from the Welcome manager and changed the Boot to to the lts kernel to test some things out. and then clicked on apply, then a window shows up with a progress bar with the title Updating configuration, please wait, and has been stuck on that for about an hour now. The progress keeps on completing, again and again, it may be just a loading animation. I can't close the window and am not sure if it's safe to reboot while this is going on. Help is highly appreciated, thank you.

You can restart and from GRUB, you can choose desired kernel.
(Provided that you installed kernel "correctly")

mhwd-kernel -li
Currently running: 5.11.2-zen1-1-zen (linux-zen)
The following kernels are installed in your system:
local/linux-zen 5.11.2.zen1-1

Sorry for the shabby question, I'm just a little panicked.

So, I just reboot with this thing running?
Just making sure.


Yep, reboot and in grub, go to advanced options and select lts.


Unfortunately that's a bug with Grub when using btrfs that doesn't look like it's going to get resolved by the grub devs any time soon.

The only way to work around the current limitation is to install a separate boot partition in ext2 or ext3 format at Garuda installation.


Thanks man, I can now sleep peacefully :peace_symbol:


Good night
