Long installation process

Hi, i'm new at Linux, just switched not long ago.

Everytime i install an app, usually through a command like :

pamac build spotify

I got this message every time and it's slowing my computer down.

Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.10.38-1-lts (x86_64)

How do i fix this ?

My spec :

AMD Ryzen 5 3500U
Vega 8 Graphics
8GB of RAM
Garuda Blackarch Linux

Thanks for reading !

Then why are you using an advanced pentesting edition like Black Arch?

Perhaps you should install one of the standard editions.

I assume the errors regarding your wifi is because the rtl8814au driver either isn't ready for the newest update to the zen kernel (or it needs to be rebuilt). Being a pentester and all I would expect you'd know about wifi issues.


Additionally I think you could check those two logs for further investigation.
Anyway, if you get this every time and your network is working, probably these are old drivers you tried in the past that should be removed from the dkms.

Do you mean the message is slowing down your computer?
What/how do you compare and get the assumption your PC slows down?


The terminal is slowing down my computer. Numbers are from stacer and htop

I'm learning and testing this edition bcz my teacher told me to. Pentesting is also new to me.
