Disable discrete GPU at boot for AMD/NVIDIA & Intel dual stuff. This is based on the old AUR package that was not migrated to AUR4.

Are you sure you don't need those first two packages?

That seems like a lot of failed services. Is everything okay?

Hmm, that's curious--usually you don't see both of these on a system together. :thinking:

nvtop supports AMD too but you can safely uninstall if you wish.
Uninstalling vga-switcheroo may leave your system in a mixed state where the package is gone but some configuration files remain. You are not on a laptop and using the discrete GPU already, disable vga-switcheroo before uninstalling and see if your system still boots, then uninstall it.
Rest is unnecessary.

samba works correctly, I do not detect any problem.
numlock works, in the past I tried to activate it at startup and tried several things, I'm sure I generated an unnecessary service.
XranDR_HDMI-0_HDMI-1.service. i record with obs, i have ultrawide monitor i use xrand to create two virtual screens in one of the monitors to get 16:9 instead of 21:9, i tried a service to make it automatic but it didn't work, at the end i do it manual every time i go to record with obs
logrotate.service, I don't know what it is.
systemd-networkd-wait-online.service I have no idea.

dracut I don't know what it is, can I uninstall it?

No.
Dracut LMWTFY,

Why do you post pictures from terminal?

It is a tool for building the initramfs images. It can be used instead of mkinitcpio--but it looks like you are using mkinitcpio, that's why I mentioned it was odd.

If you are not going to switch to dracut, you should uninstall those packages.

garuda-bootctl-dracut is a package that isn't even out of development--no one should have it installed.

Why do you have all of these inappropriate packages installed? What happened?

Is it forbidden to publish a photo of the terminal?
Or do you mean something else?
I did it that way because a picture is worth a thousand words.

Again

Apart from the traffic and the useless increase of the forum memory.
It is also not to be expected of the helping ones from any photos, if one can read everything, to type out the error messages to look for solutions in the Internet.

So, the easier the person seeking help makes it for the helper, the more likely it is that a solution will be found.

Sometimes, but not from terminal or other text/chars.

Ok, understood.

It might seem like it's not a big deal, but it is. Photos of error messages or other terminal outputs are not searchable by the forum software. People searching for a solution to a similar issue in the future will never find the posts that use pictures instead of text, even a thread that solved their exact issue.

A thread made of pictures with a solution fixes one computer, where a thread made of text with a solution could fix a thousand.

Ok, understood. thanks
