Garuda-dr460nized-gaming-linux-zen-230902 will not install

I had downloaded the prerelease garuda-dr460nized-gaming-linux-zen-230902 and went to finally install it today and when I clicked the install button on the live desktop it didn’t do anything. Might this just be a Calamares issue?

Have you tried from terminal? E.g.

sudo -E calamares -d

I will try from terminal later.

Ah, you’re right! My bad, I forgot that this issue was mentioned in another thread (Hyprland).
If the “normal” Dr460nized version is OK for you, there are more recent development builds (unfortunately not for the gaming edition):

The calamares issue was fixed on the 05-Sep-2023.

Yea cause I can just upgrade to the gaming version once on the installed desktop. That said is there any difference between Dr460nized doing the gaming update and the actual Dr460nized Gaming? Thanks for the info on what’s going on.

The Dr460nized Gaming ed. just has the advantage of having so many packages preinstalled that with the regular Dr460nized you can easily add anyway.
And that’s also the weakness of the Dr460nized Gaming edition in my opinion: with all that stuff it tends to break more frequently and I think even updating iso’s is more problematic (that’s why it’s more stationary).
To get a good idea of the differences you could compare
