I've only been running Garuda for a couple of weeks, when on the 27-Aug, I updated. The reboot "failed". I tried a few USB Boot recovery options including rolling back to a ealier snapshot and attempting to repair grub. Same issue.
I ended up reinstalling Garuda, but to a new partition as I wanted to keep my configs. It did the same once updated. While staring at screen for several minutes wondering what to do next, the grub boot came up and Garuda started no problems. It just took a loooong time for grub to start. Probably no need to re-install, if I had been patient, it would have eventually booted. But given grub was coming up in seconds prior to that update, who would think of waiting?
I don't reboot often, but I did another update on 1-Sept. I have heard there was a problem with grub on Arch Installs, and grub was rolled back. However, I still have the same problem. Grub takes about 2 minutes to start.
So I followed the recovery procedure (to re-install grub) outlined here:
Rebooted again. This time it took 12 minutes for grub to load, as shown below:
sudo systemd-analyze Startup finished in 9.700s (firmware) + 12min 252ms (loader) + 3.923s (kernel) + 10.550s (userspace) = 12min 24.427s graphical.target reached after 10.549s in userspace.
Any ideas why the grub loader is taking so long? I assume the "loader" is grub. Obviously booting from my recovery USB meant I was back in the BIOS double checking boot settings. Still good (no fast boot). My inxi is below.
I love how quickly linux boots (especially i3), but I'm not impressed with grub.
