From live ISO? yes :slight_smile: [email protected]

Use latest version, kernel must be 5.14.8 then.
You may also have downloaded a developer version.
Who knows but you :slight_smile:
Would be interesting to know the full ISO name.


its a dvd i got with linux magazine last week
garuda KDE Dr460nized edition 64 bit

Garuda Linux is a rolling release, so, "old" versions need sometimes 4-6 GiB updates.
So best is, use only official downloads. It's always less than the updates you need later.


to be honest i thought with it being from a linux magazine it would be updated etc. il download latest and try again..

thanks for the help guys
much appreciated


Maybe it is easier to see now why the posting of

inxi -Faz

can be so helpful.

With a DVD like this, the time from its download to production and release has to be included. This can be done with Ubuntu but not with a rolling release.

You can also never know what else is contained on it.

yea true i suppose, well one can only try. to suceed you have to try.

Have you tried restoring snapshot ?

One can technically dd the dvd into an .iso file and use Garuda downloader to get the delta, to be a "green downloader" :green_apple:
