I'm new to linux and garuda, even if i did some researchs so i know a bit of what i'm doing but this kind of lost me.
I've decided to switch to garuda because my older laptop is having trouble with windows drivers. so i grabed an 8 gigabyte pendrive burned the garuda iso on it,i the installation goes smoothly untill i reach almost 100% a pop up appears and says that the installation failed.
Here is what the pop up says :
i tried other garuda ISO and the same pop up message appears i changed pendrive 3 times with no luck, i tried the erase disk option from garuda installing, then the manual partition option but the problem still persists
can anyone help me to fix this issue?
if you want to know the specs of my laptop here is what i can provide:
intel pentium (can't say the exact model but my laptop is from 2014 if it can help)
with intel hd graphics
and a sata 500 GB hard disk
fastboot is disabled in bios and so is secure boot, where do i find the "nonfree" option please ? i'm really a newbie and i really don't know a lot on the subject.
and sorry about that
thanks for the help,it's really appreciated
i launched the process again with driver free,i'll keep you updated on the process, for now
here is some info about the pop up error i got earlier :
"error boost python for job "bootloader"
command " grub-install target=x86_64 efi --efi directory=/ --bootloader id=garuda--force' return non zero exit status 1
installing for x86_64 platform. could not prepare boot variable. No space left on device grub-install: error. efibootimage failed to register the boot entry. input/output error.
thanks again for the help
If you include terminal outputs in your post please use the proper output format in your post. Using "~" 3 times above and "~" 3 times below the text block will provide a readable, raw look.
i don't have a Vfat partition for some reason i have a dev/sda 1 and a dev/sda 2 and two other small one that are unallocated, can you help me to set the partition correcly again using the garuda partition manager? i'm kind of lost since i had that Vfat partition before?
forgot to add that the /dev/sda1 is 300 mib and in fat32 with 284 kib used so i guess that the "erase disk" option must have allocated them automatically? since i did the manual partition option i went back to the "erase disk option" earlier so all the partitioning that i did were erased and i'm left with this and the other partition allocated is s/dev/2 and is 465.45 gib should i add more storage to the dev/sda1? or rename it completely?
terminal name in garuda is Alcacritty right? i tried to remake partition, i allowed this time 500mib for boot and everything that is supposed to go in this partition, but there is still the same error, strangely
