Installing Kernels, Missing Modules, Problems Booting

I've been at this for days and have really put forth a lot of effort to use online resources to figure this out but it's just not clicking with me. Whenever I try to install additional kernels such as Linux Mainline, Git, Next-Git, etc, they are missing modules when I call mkinitcpio and refuse to boot. I also tried to build and compile Linux TKG and it failed in a similar fashion. I've tried manually moving modules where I think they should go and install AUR packages that tinker with hooks and modules. Obviously Garuda Linux is somewhat new to me but I am CompTIA A+ certified to give you some idea of my level of competence. I just can't figure this out and it's extremely frustrating. I typically don't post on forums because I'm usually competent enough to solve my computing woes so any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Bwahahahahahaha! So help yourself.
:wink:

You shouldn't need to do that in Garuda, but make sure you also have the appropriate headers.

Reboot. Your present woes may be altered.

Did you install the headers too?

Yes I did install headers. I'll report back in about half an hour with some screenshots to provide for information. Thank you everyone for your insight.

Please, post terminal input and output only as text formatted between three ~ in first and last line. Thanks.
And

I apologize for my newbiness. What is meant by "formatted between three ~ in first and last line"?

Quick update: I've fresh installed Garuda Linux KDE Dragonized Gaming Edition and I'm currently installing linux-git, linux-mainline, linux-next-git kernels. Will report back with complete update shortly.

Alright so here are the steps I've taken so far:

  • Fresh install of Garuda Linux KDE Dragonized Gaming Edition via Samsung T5 Portable SSD
  • Booted with proprietary GFX
  • Formatted SSD as empty GPT disk with Gnome Disk Utility
  • Fresh installed Garuda via the install utility, selected erase entire disk.
  • Upon first boot, installed several additional kernels: xanmod, git, next-git, mainline, etc.
  • REBOOT
  • Installed upd72020x-fw, wd719x-firmware, aic94xx-firmware, linux-firmware-qlogic
  • REBOOT
  • sudo mkinitcpio -P
  • Error: Nvidia modules not found in several kernel image presets.
  • First run of Garuda-Update on fresh install.
  • REBOOT
  • Garuda-Update -system is fully updated at this point.
  • sudo mkinitcpio -P

Same error occurs on multiple kernels:

Maybe the release candidates are not ready for Nvidia yet, since bore, arch, zen has no problems.

Excuse my ignorance but isn't it possible to patch the modules into the kernels i.e. force the kernel to attempt to use the modules? I would imagine something like that would be 'easy' given the small difference between incremental updates but again, I'm just barely scratching the surface of Linux. I haven't the slightest idea how any of this stuff works but it's very cool.

Me too :grin: Welcome to the Club :wink:

I'm sure there will be a better answer here from our members.

Unlike other hardware drivers, the Nvidia drivers are still not properly built into the Linux kernel. This is because Nvidia chooses to keep critical chunks of code proprietary and closed off. It has pretty much always been this way. Recently Nvidia has opened up pieces of the code, but not enough for the drivers to get into the kernel.

A consequence of this is kernel point releases can often be painful for Nvidia users; if there is a breaking change, the driver needs to be fixed to restore compatibility with the updated kernel. Nvidia lags behind the kernel development-wise, always playing catch-up with new kernel releases because of this.

There is an Nvidia driver built into the kernel: the Nouveau driver. It is very stable and reliable--and is truly a remarkable feat of reverse-engineering--but it tends to yield inferior performance in comparison to the proprietary drivers.

In any case, as SGS mentioned it might spare you some grief to avoid the RC kernels while running an Nvidia card.

Would the built-in driver you speak of be included in the nvidia-open-dkms AUR package? Aside from this question I think you've all answered my questions sufficiently enough to close this thread. Appreciate it :slight_smile:

The Nouveau driver is built into the kernel--no need to install anything, you already have it. See in your garuda-inxi it is listed as an unloaded driver:
