there's something wrong with further linux os when running grub-mkconfig
in /boot/grub/grub.cfg the output lines for that os contain an undesired ^ simbol instead of blank space, like this:
initrd /boot/intel-ucode.img^/boot/initramfs-linux.img

found the same in that discussion:
Os-prober-btrfs generating faulty entries

seems like an update took away a snippet of code in /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober; here are actual lines 213 and 214:

        LINITRD="`echo ${LINUX} | cut -d ':' -f 5`"
        LPARAMS="`echo ${LINUX} | cut -d ':' -f 6- | tr '^' ' '`"

line 213 miss the final | tr '^' ' '
inserting it and running again grub-mkconfig, all is right again

on my archlinux installation there's the same line 213, and same problem with os-prober
on manjaro, line 213 is correct

I'm not so expert about the package maintenance chain: which is the right place to notify this?
until patch, changing that line and re-running grub-mkconfig can set things right if anyone found the same problem

Paging @librewish cause he's the package maintainer

Looks like an upstream bug in grub itself? That file is owned by the grub package, and arch doesn't seem to apply any patches to it. It's certainly not a Garuda Linux issue :thinking:

Well we could use hook but don't know if it's worth it
