Im in love with garuda, but it seems that whenever i suspend or hibernate my system after wake up it freezes. My touchpad is getting disabled, and my custom sddm is reset to normal. To make everything work again i have to reboot the system.
This problem is only occurring on my laptop. i would be sad to have to reinstall it all over.
How did you setup swap/hibernation? And I know you said it freezes after suspend/hibernate. I just wanted to be clear because they are different and sometimes people use the terms interchangeably.
Please post the output of
Btrfs is very specific on setting up hibernation, it's not as easy as on ext4. I admit I haven't done it yet. But a Garuda barebones install and hibernation setup is on my to do list. I haven't used btrfs much, so thus is a good distro for me to learn on.
Also just an FYI, the only open issue is that it requires update-grub to use the script properly.
It just so happens that's one of the first things I usually install (since I'm lazy), so other than that, abandoned or not, it SHOULD be fine otherwise. But I do agree, it has had no update for almost 6 years. It's truly amazing it still works.
As I started with, I've never had any issues with it and recommend it with the same caveat of backups and everything else. It's probably just a script that creates a swap file, adds it to grub turns swap on and that's basically it. Not really much to change unless the process changes.
Also @petsam Welp, I can assure you it does not work with Garuda w/o a swap partition. I installed Garuda GNOME and just downloaded and tried to run it and I was greeted by this:
╭─[email protected] in ~ took 12s
╰─λ sudo hibernator 16G
No swap partition or swapfile detected.
Your root filesystem is btrfs and does not support swapfiles!
Try again after manually creating a swap partition.
SOOO, that being said, since the only other installation option was with swap and hibernation - this is definitely an irrelevant package for Garuda, and BTRFS in general. So, that solves the case of the missing hibernation.
And now that we've kinda semi-hijacked this thread @Dembezuma , any luck with this issue?
