So I have been using Garuda for a few months and have been having a good time with it, however, recently it looks like I am unable to just boot into the regular "Garuda Linux" entry from grub. I am able to go into the snapshots, select the latest one, and then choose the regular linux-zen kernel and initramfs (not the fallback ones) and it boots just fine. I think this started happening after I did a
pacman -Syu but I am not entirely sure. When it originally happened I thought to just restore a snapshot. So I boot into an older snapshot (From anywhere from a week to a month ago) and click the "Restore" button on the popup that says I am running on a snapshot and would I like to restore it. I immediately do a reboot and still nothing. Stuck on
loading initial ramdisk at boot.
I initially thought it was something with my grub install. So I blew the old partition away, and then reinstalled grub to no avail. Thought that maybe I should just rebuild the initramfs so I ran
sudo mkinitcpio -P and that still didn't work. Then I thought to just reinstall the linux headers using
sudo pacman -S linux-zen linux-zen-headers to maybe grab the newest version that might fix it, but still nothing. I also went in to
btrfs-assistant and checked the diffs on each of my files in the
/boot directory and it showed that there were no changes between my snapshots and the latest snapshot which I thought was weird, since in the grub menu it is booting using one of my older snapshots'
/boot folder with success.
So far my solution has been to going into the "Garuda Snapshots" entry within grub, and selecting the
vmlinuz-linux-zen & initramfs-linux-zen.img & amd-ucode.img entry which boots using
initrd "/@_backup_20220112230608429/boot/amd-ucode.img" "/@_backup_20220112230608429/boot/initramfs-linux-zen.img". I am able to get into my computer using this method, and it seems like it isn't detected as a snapshot and I can actually install things and have it persist so I am not complaining a whole lot. But I think it would be great to get back to a state where I am able to just click enter without thinking about it. Is there anything that I am missing at all? Or is my only option to reinstall?
This is the output from
garuda-inxi as well. I tried to include as much as I could, but if I missed anything I would be glad to add! Thanks!
