Its fine. I just have one question. Do I need to somehow mount /home as well to install linux-lts? I am trying to rule out the possibility of this being a kernel issue
I don't think so.
You can install kernel from TTY easily.
Alright. I am going to install linux-lts
Btw, you should change the title because chrooting is not the actual problem.
Ok, I am just really tired
Btw, here is similar topic.
I checked it out. The problem is that I reinstalled garuda and now I don't have the downgraded version of sddm. Reinstalling didnt help as the problem is probably in the /home directory and I don't want to lose all my data
Live boot and backup your data first.
I installed linux-lts and I am going to boot with it just to verify that it is not a linux-zen issue
Is deleting the entire ~/.config directory safe? Those configs would be regenerated right? I can't boot in even by using the lts kernel
Can I somehow change my login screen from sddm to something else?
You can get the current default configs with cp -rf /etc/skel/* ~
To clarify, did you try to downgrade SDDM? (
sudo downgrade sddm)
You could as well just disable sddm (
sudo systemctl disable --now sddm) and login to tty, then type
startx to start the session manually
No, I will try downgrading
Well I downgraded to 19.0.03 and the same issue arises. I can't even get to a tty
Trying to disable sddm gives an error saying that System has not been booted with systemd as init system and writing cp -rf /etc/skel/* ~ gives error saying no such file or directory
We have to do something about SDDM, try putting a warning up that tells people not to upgrade. Or something like that.
Can't I switch from SDDM to lighdm or gdm3?
Are you able to get to a tty?
Nope but I have chrooted from a live usb
sudo pacman -S lightdm
sudo systemctl enable lightdm.service
