Garuda stopped working

On my dad's pc , randomly dragonized stopped working. He shut the pc of normally in the morning and when booting in the evening it shows the following errors(both in snapshots and normal boot). I see the following errors when i press up arrow while loading snapshot and normal distro

Dependencies failed for:
Network synchronisation
Random filename
Same "random filename" device
Swap
Systemd service
And a couple of timeout messages

Define normal

TTY possible?

Upgrade fail?

no upgrade. tty not possible. normal= soft shut down from inside the OS

How many snapshots in grub?
5?
If nothing work use USB with ISO and chroot and upgrade the system


If your father "only":

"My dad only uses web browser and consumes multimedia"

then make fresh install. :smiley:

Backup needed data via live ISO.

???

Did you search the web?

I think I will install a more pedestrian distribution cause maybe my dad's old hardware is causing some issues

Mint, MX Linux.

Yeah I'm gonna try mint. If it breaks also it means something wrong with pc itself. Cause my pc garuda runs stable as long as I update wisely.

This kind of sounds like the root filesystem has broken in some way, e.g. filesystem corruption or a failing drive...

Mint isn't installing. Garuda is able to install again.

I guess this is a fix for now. Reinstalling garuda.

It could have been. Reinstalled and it's working fine

One time I have same issue, that time I upgrade and stopped the process in between and whole system crashed. And not starting after restart. Then I done fresh install.

You might wanna consider using Old Reliable 'dd' to write the ISO.

I have had really good luck using SUSE Studio Imagewriter.

I would echo @zoner. If you don't want to use dd then my tool of choice is imagewriter as well.

Lot of people prefer etcher as it is cross platform, but because of the changes to etcher I will no longer recommend it. Also, as etcher is an electron app it is huge in size compared to other similar apps for this purpose.

I have been using popsicle as of late. Works really well.

Ahh, is it only me who have been using gnome-disk-utility for years. :sweat_smile:

It works great, less in size, cross platform, multi purpose, etc.

Isoimagewriter - for KDE

Small, KDE-native, from the KDE Community

I've been using it for awhile, error-free.

It's a handy utility for its other features, as well. :slight_smile:
