Garuda Dr460nized - Calamares Initialization Failed in VM (UNSUPPORTED)

Hi everyone!

After I've seen articles / videos on this distro, I've felt I need to try it - it looks so polished, so gorgeous! So first of all thanks for all the hard work on this!!

I've been trying to install garuda-dr460nized-linux-zen-210328.iso in VirtualBox (I'm currently on Ubuntu 20.04) following all the guidelines in the videos. However as soon as I click on "Install Garuda Linux" the installer fails with this error:

"Calamares Initialization failed
(...) Calamares was unable to load all of the configured modules. This is a problem with the way Calamares is being used by the distribution. The following modules could not be loaded: [email protected], [email protected]"

I'm also attaching the output of the debug mode (sudo -E calamares -d). Could anyone please advise what should I do? I've been looking for similar posts but I couldn't find a solution yet..

Thanks
Daniel

Our distro is optimized for performance on real hardware. Installing in virtual machines is not recommended as it might result in a bad experience!

And
:slight_smile:

You are on your own, we don't provide any support for!

Try new iso 20210329

The 20210328 iso was broken

Sure, understood! Just wanted to try it first before I feel ready to switch.

Thanks librewish! The installation did start using the new iso (although did not go through properly). Anyway, probably I need to investigate more and install it without virtualization - I'm just little bit uncomfortable how to switch from Ubuntu without data loss and such as I don't have experience in distro hopping :slight_smile:

But thanks for all the help!
