After a full system upgrade the boot menu option changed from EndeavourOS to ArchLinux

I haven’t booted into my EOS install in awhile and after updating mirrors, upgrading the system, etc. I noticed that the boot menu option for EndeavourOS text changed from EOS to ArchLinux. I’ve also checked to see if any of the packages in the EOS repo were still present on my system and most of them seem to be. (I only did a cursory glance comparing the 2 lists)

Is this normal behavior? I’m just curious if I messed something up during the upgrade. Any advice would be helpful.



# Boot Loader Specification type#1 entry
# File created by /etc/kernel/install.d/90-loaderentry.install (systemd 254.1-1-arch)
title      Arch Linux
version    6.6.8-arch1-1

/etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist does have mirrors listed.

SigLevel = PackageRequired
Include = /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist

You probably removed the package eos-hooks at some point. Try reinstalling that and filesystem at the same time.

Then run sudo reinstall-kernels

That did fix it, thanks!

Both of those packages were installed before I reinstalled them like your previous reply suggested.

When grepping /var/log/pacman.log for eos-hooks and filesystem, these 2 did show up:

[2024-01-01T09:19:20-0600] [ALPM] upgraded eos-hooks (1.13-1 -> 1.15-1)
[2024-01-01T09:22:24-0600] [ALPM] running 'eos-hooks.hook'...


[2024-01-01T09:18:57-0600] [ALPM] upgraded filesystem (2023.01.31-1 -> 2023.09.18-1)

Any idea what might have caused it to happen? So far it doesn’t seem like the upgrade messed anything else up.

I am not sure but waiting 6+ months between updates on an Arch-based distro will definitely cause strangeness sometimes.

You really should try to update at least once a month.
