kernel setup also missing.

new update too worst :rage: :rage: :rage: :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

Please watch your language.
No need to hate, if you are not satisfied you can install another distro :slight_smile:
Other than that, these kind of posts dont help solving the issue either, nor will it make the process go faster.

forget it. tell me how to remove latest update.

Wasn't there a special Btrfs Timeshift snapshots for this? :thinking:

actually i am using garuda in last 4 months but last 3 day i will face many problems please help me.
gpared missing.
kernel missing.
touch pad not working properly.
wine not working properly.

Like i said

Install linux-lts

sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers

Then reboot

And on grub menu choose advanced option and boot to lts kernel

Then report

any video contain or pics.

For terminal input?
No.
For grub menu?
No.

Youtube is full of videos, not all are helpful.

try but not working :disappointed: :disappointed:

Touchpad problems are often related to kernel.
So we can only suggest changing kernel versions
Or restore to working timeshift snapshot and wait.

Until the problems are solved upstream.


suggest ant kernel?

Try

sudo pacman -S linux-tkg-pds linux-tkg-pds-headers

Or
Mainline kernel

sudo pacman -S linux-mainline linux-mainline-headers
