Guys very weird issue i had a couple of days of Chadwm not starting so i have had to use snapshots.
But from Grub window on bootup the snpashots last build was 23 Dec 2023!
But i have 7 a day and when i boot into Chadwm and go to snapper tools i can see them all!
How do i get them to show on bootup?
PLease note i am not on Garuda but Arcolinux but was told to speak to people on here as btrfs is your default on install.
I know i can manually delete it but can it be set in snapper to show the latest in grub boot up ?
Regenerating grub config doesn’t brick your system. Even if you somehow manage to do it you would only have to chroot into your system and reinstall grub.
probably because you have some pacman hooks that add these snapshots when you perform any pacman transactions. This includes running grub-mkconfig to update grub. Thus why the automatically created snapshots weren’t added and need the service mentioned by bluishHumility to be enabled.
What does this mean? If you wanna know what grub-mkconfig will produce then no there is no preview option with grub-mkconfig. Read it’s manual.
The Arco dev has a good working relationship with Garuda guys.
So is there any need for sarcastic comments.
Arco dev is always promoting Garuda just need need to personify what everybody says about arch users. Lets have a better 2024 as Arch users.
Timeshift does basically one thing in a fairly specific way, while Snapper can be configured more freely to do essentially whatever you want. This makes Snapper a more versatile tool, but also more complex to administer.
In addition to being fairly simple to use and easy to understand, Timeshift can also be used on filesystems besides Btrfs (in rsync mode), while Snapper cannot.
Snapper is considerably more configurable and in general more robust. You can configure snapshots for any subvolume in any location with any naming convention you like. You can have tons of separate configs with different settings for each one if you want to. Essentially there are just much fewer restrictions with how it can be used than Timeshift.

This is also where this thread belongs; I’ll move it over now since it is resolved anyway. Welcome @OsoPolar and happy new year.
Hmm I understand the reason for your comment however at the same time there have been instances in past where I have posted on arch’s reddit and despite them heavily mentioning everywhere arch questions only a few kind people have pulled me out of a pinch when people here didn’t know what was happening with my system. This is the reason why I am hesitant to just shoo away anyone asking help.
