I tested the new EndeavourOS Cassini on a virtual machine because I wanted to start experimenting with dracut, which is now replacing mkinitcpio (for good, I seem to understand) in EndeavourOS.
When partitioning, I selected to wipe the whole disk and “swap with hibernate”, which used to work in the past (with mkinitcpio).
However, I seem to understand that now EndeavourOS, while configuring fstab and /etc/default/grub correctly for hibernation, forgot to configure dracut accordingly. As a result, hibernation does not work.
first of all I thank you for this topic and the elaborated work-around.
I am not quite sure if my concern fits to your. It is this:
Seven days after the release of the 2022-12-19 EndeavourOS Cassini Iso release I installed with the older 2022-09 iso release and all worked well just as on my other machine. One day later though it came to my knowledge, that Cassini has just been released. So I thought, well if there is one newer iso -which was in parts improved - I will take this one to install EOSCassini on two more machine, knowing that this would not be necesary.
Two things showed themself up after the installing of Cassini GNOME:
1_ GDM does not have Adwaita Icons. It looks rather like the Qogir Icons are installed by default. After logging in the chosen Adwaita Icons show up. I am aware that this is only “cosmetiques” not really important but not reasonably.
2_This now is the important part which seems to relate to your topic.
I installed GNOME with full-disc-encrytion and swap (with hibernation) partition. Now every shutdown - reboot or shutdown - this message appeares:
[1696.460166] systemd-shutdown  waiting for process: 482 (brltty)
And with this message it take to my mind far too long to shutdown.
Compared with the installation with the older iso, this message does not show itself up and the system shuts quickly down.
Dear lorebett: Is your workaround suited for this fact - I mean number 2_ of mine? Would it lead to a quick shutting down? I am kindly asking this, although I am experienced, I am cautious with configuring the system on this deep level. I would preciate an answer. Thank you very much in advance.
to 1_ SOLVED
Reason was the following file, which does NOT exist in Cassini installed with the 2022-09 iso:
install from the aur-repository:
a_ yay gdm-tools
b_ yay gdm-setting
a_ set cursor-theme
b_ set icon-theme
c_ save settings and logout
gdm settings now set as chosen
to 2_ NOT solved
I executed command
sudo pacman -Rns orca [because of dependencies] brltty
The problem still remains and brltty delays shutting down.
Any further idea? What is with dracut?
Yes, I did it in the first place, resp. the system. But I did it once again - with no change to the prolem.
The option mentioned above by BluishHumility SOLVED the problem at last.
Thank you so much for your endurance in this matter.
That’s not installed by default and only getting in from installer ISO if you do select option to install tools for impaired vision.
If you do not need this and installed it accidentally remove the packages and rebuild the kernel images.
sudo pacman -Rc brltty
If you do rebuild the images keep in mind that you need to reboot / power of after this to get the new image loaded … for the shutdown directly after rebuilding images it will still show the brltty warning/ lag …
thank you so much for this excellent workaround of the problem.
due to private challenges this delayed reply.
ex temporae: i gratefully thank the endeavouros and archlinux communitues for its enduring, empowering and supporting engagement.
