Login Loop with the Live System

Every time when i boot the iso (normally with my pc or VM), i get stuck in login loop. I thought maybe is the ISO corruped, but with the fresh download does it also now work.

Also is the Grub Splashscreen when i start from usb so fast, i cant choose the nvidia drivers.

Please post the garuda-inxi, as text, from live ISO.
If you use nvidia GPU read


From the template :slight_smile:

  • Format terminal output (including your garuda-inxi) as a code block by clicking the preformatted text button (</>) , or put three tildes (~) above and below the text

Btw, using Garuda in VM is not supported.


But i have the same problem without vm, idk how to safe the output when i start from usb no in vm

Follow the instructions from the link above. Please.

Are you sure u send me the right link? I dont find any instructions for me


IIRC, for Nvidia GPU , chroot, install hyprland-nvidia or hyprland-nvidia-git,
set env vars

export LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=nvidia
export XDG_SESSION_TYPE=wayland
export GBM_BACKEND=nvidia-drm
export GBM_BACKEND=nvidia_drm

For Garuda theme install after reboot garuda-hyprland-settings.

sudo cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.bak && sudo sed '/^GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=/s/"$/ nvidia-drm.modeset=1 "/g' -i /etc/default/grub && sudo update-grub


Advanced Users Only :warning:


You have a 12-year old Intel Gen 3 CPU and 2 GB RAM? Is that right, or only the VM?

What kind of fancy modern RAM-consuming user interface were you planning to use?
