I just updated the system with 'sudo pacman -Syu' and restarted the machine and fell in to above problem.
I am new to Garuda and please help me with the solution.
Restore the snapshot and don't update until devs fix the issue. You can also update without sddm.
..... Same problem with me.. Try re install now because i dont have any timeshift.. If you have timeshift you can rollback..
So the solution is not to update right?
You can update, in this way:
pacman -Syu --ignore sddm
or (preferred imo):
pacman -Sy sddm-git && pacman -Syu
But it is not said that all the problems in the world are linked to that problem there.
I think you should also read well, if the above doesn't work, the post linked by Jonathon.
The mirror for India is not working. what should I do?
can I select any other country mirrors or is there any other solution?
Although Germany is a developing country in terms of internet connectivity, the servers are often quite strong. Try them out.
I have the same problem that I stuck at "Loading initial ramdisk ..." I just installed Garuda Linux a few days ago, so I have no hesitation to re-install the system. But I wanna know if the cause of this trouble is sddm or not. And also, the proper way to get through this issue is to stop updating with "pacman -Syu" and wait for the dev's reaction against this?
yes , updating the linux will endup in the above error.
I think we should wait for the dev's response.
hmm... ok. I can see some threads discussing the same problem. I'll wait and see how it goes.
Ah, wait. How should I know when and how the problem is fixed?
