Last garuda-update with graphic package broke garuda

Few minutes ago I have decided to run a full system updated. In the list of packages there was the garuda video package. After a reboot the system boots, it logins to my i3 environment but it is completely stuck. I cannot do anything. Neither open a terminal so plesee do not ask to post garuda inxi command because I cannot pull it down. Any ideas?

Restore the latest working snapshot

Which mean to get to the grub. The problem is that I’ve set in garuda to skip the grub and load immediately the kernel so I cannot access the grub

Maybe you can change this at BIOS level and boot to the Garuda entry (should still be there)?
Or maybe try with a live USB to reach the snapshots.


No luck at the bios level trying with the live usb

You can always CTRL + ALT + F1/F2/F3 etc. to access different TTYs. These should work regardless of graphics.



I am new here. I have the same issue. I just created an account for reporting the issue.
The graphical driver and/or the dependencies cause the break in the system. because i am new i cant upload images.
You can restore from snapshot if you use it. And next time ignore the xf96-video-intel… package and the dependencies.

For me this packages cause the problem:

:: Starting full system upgrade...
resolving dependencies...
looking for conflicting packages...

Failed units:

You should be able to override a zero timeout and access the Grub menu by holding down Shift just after POST.


Already have something up here:

Will need additional verification tomorrow due to it changing a code package.

Edit: pushed a hotfix which reverts the package back to its old state.


Thank you.

Until the solution i will just ignore those packages.
