All issues related to Garuda Linux and its assistance
First time using Garuda. I've been working with linux for a while now, but this is more than I know how to fix.
I downloaded the Recbox iso. There are problems from the very beginning unfortunately.
On boot up, the boot menu screen shows for less than a second before going directly to the live desktop. Theres no chance to make a selection.
Once at the desktop, 2 strange things happen.
A. The screen brightness automatically starts dimming until, I'd say it reaches the very lowest brightness.
B. I am unable to use the mouse or keyboard to access anything. That is, once the brightness level reaches the lowest point. While its dimming, I can kind of click on things but everything is slow and hard to move the mouse atound.
I was able to gain control of the desktop by escaping to command by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F2. I then put in the user and pass as "garuda". It logs in, then I type "startx" to load the desktop and I am now able to use the desktop. But then...
- I run the installer, partition the disk using btrfs, create the names and passwords.. and once installation begins it seems to work until half way when I get an error:
Boost.Python error in job "bootloader".
Command 'grub-install --target=i386-PC--recheck --force /dev/SB's returned non-zero exit status 1." ...etc...
I realized that I had not setup things properly for installing on uefi.. usually there is no problem when using other installers, but apparently Garuda will not automatically adjust and I found other settings I had to use.
I should mention that I am attempting to install on a uefi system and dual boot with windows. Plus I am installing it on a second disk. I have 4 drives (3 ssd & 1 hdd) in my computer. windows is installed on one drive and I want to install linux on another. I have done this successfully with many other distributions. I was attracted to Garuda's Recbox because I am wanting to have a linux system for audio production.
But even after following directions and putting an 8mb unformatted space/partition at the beginning of the drive and other things... it still fails and I get this message every time.
Is it possible to install garuda for UEFI dual boot? If so can someone please show me how?
