Starting problems Garuda Gnome-Ultimate

I have just installed the current Garuda Linux Gnome-Ultimate Edition, after restarting the PC the PC got stuck and a black screen appears and the sentence "Starting version 246.6-1-arch" appears in the top left, so it is not possible to log in . I had already installed the old Gnome-Ultimate Edition, everything worked, but since the release of the new version, Gnome-Ultimate no longer works for me, all other Ultimate Editions (KDE, xfce, Mate) work.

My system:
Mainboard: Asus H170M-Plus
Processor: Intel Core i3-6100 3.70GHz
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 530

Hi there @anon52020173, as was explained on your previous post on this topic an output of your hardware specs would be most useful.

You do not have to do this from your unbootable installed version. Your specs can be obtained on any version of Garuda that works or even an Ubuntu boot disk.

Simply run the following command from a working boot disk on your system:

inxi -Fxxxza

Please post the output (as text not a picture) from a working boot disk that can obtain an internet connection.

And how exactly does it work, I've never done anything like that, especially since I don't have a cd / dvd.

The term boot disk is used interchangeably these days for whatever media type you use to install with. In the old days that was more likely a CD/DVD drive, these days it is more likely to be a flash drive most people use.

You simply run the command I gave you in the terminal of any Garuda boot media that works for you. If you have a working internet connection on the live environment then you copy paste the output to the forum.

Please format the code with three ``` backticks before and after the terminal output for proper formatting. No pictures please.

Done (ok, for me I use ~~~). greetings SGS :slight_smile:

somehow doesn't work for me, I always get the error message "command not found". I'm fed up with Garuda for now. By the way, I'm not the first to have this problem, in another English-speaking forum there is also a user with the same error under Gnome-Ultimate. If all other DE work except Gnome, then something is wrong with the Gnome packages.

No offense intended Odin, but troubleshooting takes far more than running a single command. With your limited amount of patience you will likely never resolve any complicated problem in Linux.

I have spent over 170 posts on a single thread troubleshooting complicated issues. It was like pulling teeth to simply get you to post your system specs. You need to develop far more patience and understanding if you expect to use a rolling distro based on Arch.

Good luck with whatever distro you choose to use.


And BTW, please stop posting lies about Garuda constantly on Distrowatch. You were offered support on your issue from several members on the Garuda team today and you balked at the help and said you're simply going back to EOS.

You were offered help and you refused it. Then you have the audacity to yet again post on Distrowatch that no one from the distro will help you.

You are a disturbed individual my friend, please stop posting lies online about our distro.


It's hard to help someone who can't help themselves. :thinking:
