The question is - what do Arch users do that is different to the “children of Arch”? (Us, Manjaro, Garuda etc).
Do they have a pacman hook that installs grub after update? In living memory I cannot remember having to do this. I started on Manjaro 2011 ish (very, very ish ), so 11 or 12 years. Grub just worked, even after an update.
Error: symbol ‘grub_debug_malloc’ not found.
Entering rescue mode
For me this was fixed by selecting the right efi boot entry in the bios. It is named “EndeavourOS-grub” if you followed the guide. The endeavouros-[number] entry that was selected previously is the broken one.
My solution was to just use rEFInd, but keep grub. I can boot into GRUB by selecting the fallback bootloader option. I hid the grub entry in the endeavorOS-grub entry as it’s redundant and i’m not sure if it worked.
Now my Dad won’t say,
hey, there’s this weird menu on the screen, where’s windows, oh never mind son now it’s spitting text at me, ok now it’s done but I see this wallpaper that has the words “EndeavourOS Artemis Neo” on it plz help where’s google chrome how do I go into windows
when he inevitably needs to take my craptop for “business reasons”
Just like how one time my Dad called me and said
“I’m in windows and the internet isn’t working, plz help”
and then it turns out he booted into SAFE MODE on accident (i have the w7 style bootloader in my w10 install and windows 7’s bootloader picks safemode as the default option after choosing the OS, and w10 BL in w7 mode is the same )
and then he gets made when I laugh at his sheer, ahem, how can I not deface my Dad here, uhh, cluelessness.
Now when he inevitably takes my craptop for “business reasons” he can just move the mouse and take the blue pill.
there is no really simple way to give step by step instructions… because chrooting is different on how the system is set up… filesystem could be ext4 xfs and indeed BTRFS it could or could not include encrypted partitions or a full encryptions… and also manual partitions with a custom setup like LVM e.t.c
So the best way is to get to read the wiki tutorials and find what is needed on your setup.
same here i done arch install reset grub and downgrade to the prior grub package reinstall grub stuff regenerate cfg file… reboot and do the update with exactly the same result that it goes directly into firmware setup…
doing grub-install solved it… not 100% but i can boot again after it…
What i see is that it could be also grub-theming is causing issues … so i would suggest to remove the grub theme in addition…
yea i see at telegram… and io do also see similar if i do grub-install it does not create a new entry in my uefy firmware anymore… it was doing this before and sets it to boot as default is this the same?
