Issues following a clean install

I had been having some hardware issues with laptop needing 10 minutes to get to bios and boot the OS and then everything worked fine except the webcam.

I brought it to the repair shop, he looked at the webcam wiring, put another HD and booted Windows. BIOS and boot are currently working fine. Webcam worked in Windows.

GRUB boot is now screwed. Luckily I have an USB stick available with Garuda. I can get to the boot menu, then when I say to boot with NVIDIA drivers, the screen goes black, the laptop overheats, and it doesn’t boot at all.

Anyone got an idea what could be going wrong? I need to repair my GRUB

Got another USB Windows stick, that one boots fine… Happy to have 2 boot sticks!!

Another issue, not sure if related, my nose has been leaking all day.

My Inxi: N/A

Rebuilt the USB with an updated image. Problem persists.

Found the issue. BIOS SATA was set to Optane and could not be modified. Had to press Ctrl+S to unlock the ability to change it.

Now it’s booting.

As for the running nose, I wonder if the supplements I started taking could be causing an reverse reaction? Will have to try pausing that.

BTW i love that grub repair got added to the welcome screen! However clicking Partition Manager from that screen does nothing.

Sorry to hear about the runny nose. :sneezing_face:

Something changed with KDE Partition Manager and it is currently not able to be launched this way. See this topic for more information about that: Partition manager not loading from Garuda Welcome (No Icon either)

If you uninstall KDE Partition Manager and install GParted instead, the utility in Garuda Welcome will work…but that does not help much in the live environment, of course.

Anyway, thanks for the reminder; I meant to do some testing and see if I can figure out what the deal is. :eyes:

I’m going for a system re-install instead of just fixing the GRUB. I’m having a few frustrations this time…

First, I understand that Linux doesn’t support Optane (which cannot be de-activated from BIOS without some hidden trick), but spinning on a black screen while over-heating the CPU isn’t the most gracious way to handle the situation.

Second, I resized/moved my partition to the end of the disk, and wanted to re-install on a new partition at the beginning of the disk. Also deleted the boot partition to get rid of it thinking I had dual-boot or something.

In the setup, it gives me the option to create partitions manually, but no matter what I do, the “next” button remains disabled, with no hint of what it needs or what’s wrong or anything. That’s not the most gracious experience either.

I had done a full backup of the Home folder before sending the laptop to the tech shop anyway… Plan B would be to flush the entire drive, and hope everything I need is in the backup. Since I can’t figure out how to get “Manual Partitioning” to work even with all the experience I have so far. Plan B is a little bit scary though…

Will sleep on it and proceed with the install in the morning.

Do you mean the EFI partition? You will need that. The bootloader stores files there. You can either create a new EFI partition, or just leave the one you have there and choose to format it when you specify the mount point for it in the manual partitioning step if you want to wipe it clean during the install.

If it is a UEFI installation, you need to mount a root partition and an EFI partition before it will allow you to proceed to the next step in the installer.

The manual partitioning option is intended to be an advanced configuration method; this may be why they have not included more explicit instructions for what you specifically should be doing.

Partition - Calamares

Manual options:

  1. This method gives you the freedom to set any option, any filesystem and partition table, but leaves it entirely up to you to completely break the install too. Make sure you know what you are doing.

Ya ok got it. If I had formatted the whole drive, I’d have lost my QEMU VMs and configs.

It’s really not obvious; but the main BTRFS drive needs mount point to set “/” (plus the root flag) and then the Next button appears; and then it shows error messages to help get the EFI drive configured properly. They could at the very least add a link to the documentation page!

Proceeding…

Another thing annoying. From the live environment, I’m unable to switch between laptop and TV outputs using laptop keyboard shortcuts; the options appears but have no effect. It displays on laptop screen expanding to the right on the TV, and that cannot be changed. Was having that issue when I tried creating a new user account; and here I’m on a completely clean live environment.

That’s already 3 issues so far on a fresh new setup.

Issue #4: if Garuda first boot is on TV output, the Garuda Setup Assistant displays an invisible window with only the titlebar, and fails to show the content. After unplugging the TV, the window came alive.

Issue #5: it showed a window with the message

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.

I put the password and then… nothing. For a couple minutes.

Finally that came back alive, now it’s updating the system. It failed with a download timeout error; retrying. It’s staying on a blank terminal for a couple minutes again.

Issue #6: the update window is flashing weirdly between gray and black,

Issue #7: Running update in a separate terminal gives this error:

error: could not read db 'extra' (gzip decompression failed)

update remote fix: this command hangs, that’s probably what the assistant is calling

garuda-update --skip-mirrorlist: still gives the error

This re-install is taking way longer than it should.

OK this command worked

reflector --country Germany --latest 5 --age 2 --fastest 5 --protocol https --sort rate --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

and now this works…

garuda-update --skip-mirrorlist

After update, update remote fix still freezes.

And unfortunately, this locks me out of the Garuda Welcome Assistant entirely.

There are other people who would just give up seeing issues on a clean install like that.

The frozen window is giving nothing in journalctl

Rebooted. Made sure I’m in X11 and not Wayland. Setup Assistant still freezes in the console.

Then try plan B.

Go into the BIOS and check the most important settings, it may be that they did a BIOS reset when repairing.

SecureBoot = disabled
Fastboot = disabled
AHCI = enabled

Disconnect all external monitors/TV.

Boot a live environment with the open source GPU drivers and make a backup of the VMs and the configs.

Then install garuda on the entire /dev/nvme0n1, just like you had before.

Then install everything you need, set up garuda and restore the VMs/configs and your personal data from the backup.

Remember: do not copy the old user configs from the old account back from the backup.

BIOS settings are OK.

The system is otherwise running fine now, other than update remote fix freezing. Do you think these issues can have anything to do with the partitions?

Nope, not really. Post your current garuda-inxi.

update remote fix eventually unjammed. Now it’s taking too long here. Jammed again.

It eventually completed.

Re-running it jams all over again, so I still cannot use the Setup Assistant.

Another detail I found: in the console, the start logo is the ASCII logo, not the new graphical one.

Reboot → close the “Garuda Setup Assistant” → open the terminal and try a simple

garuda-update

Ran the Setup Assistant just by waiting a very long time.

Rebooted, ran garuda-update which went fine.

Setup Assistant still cannot run without a VERY long delay.

Then don’t use the “Garuda Setup Assistant” and install the packages you need manually using pacman.

Is the pretty dragon still missing…?

Pretty dragon is still missing.

Terminal:

micro ~/.config/fish/config.fish 

scroll down to line 169 or 170, this should be there:

fastfetch --config dr460nized

If not, enter it there.
Then save with CTRL + S → exit with CTRL + Q → close the terminal and reopen.

Ya it got this by default. The whole setup process might need a review.

if status --is-interactive && type -q fastfetch
   fastfetch --config neofetch.jsonc
end

Dragon is back!

The original setting is the correct configuration as far as I can tell. garuda-fish-config/config.fish · main · Garuda Linux 🦅 / PKGBUILDs · GitLab It shouldn’t be changed to the dr460nized config in the PKGBUILD repo because all the other spins use this same file.

Probably there is some way we could get an overwrite for only the Dr460nized spin for just that one config, but I’m not sure if that is desired by the maintainers.

I assume the “pretty dragon” has always been something that needs to be set up manually. Is that not right?

Nope, it always worked out of the box for me.
In my bare metal installation it says from the beginning:

## Run fastfetch if session is interactive
if status --is-interactive && type -q fastfetch
fastfetch --load-config dr460nized
end

And that hasn’t changed so far, not even after updates.

Edit: In the current garuda-dr460nized-linux-zen-240428.iso it is actually fastfetch --config neofetch.jsonc.

@dr460nf1r3 should know more about that :slightly_smiling_face:

btw a fresh install doesn’t install Optimus Manager anymore? Do I need to install that manually?

Not sure whether some procedures have changed over the years; currently is it only using NVIDIA or what?
