Hello there! I’ve not long had Endeavour as my first OS, and so far so good. Something has bothered me with it though, which is I have it using systemdboot. I didn’t notice an option for grub when installing, but having broken my system a few times now I can very much see the appeal in using it if for no other reason than just because of how much more information on it there is out there.
I don’t really know how swap to it though, and I can easily see myself making a mistake. Looking online the information I’ve seen is either a bit over my head or simply not for arch, and even then has some mixed warnings with it.
Going through that now, I’m stuck at the third line. It says it cannot find reinstall-kernels. Is there a typo in sudo pacman -S eos-dracut grub not having a - before grub or is this just some other problem?
I found a post where someone mentioned the swap partition being the problem, but I’m doubting that’s it here and I already know what sorta damage I can do when following fixes for the wrong problems. As it stands I’m stuck unable to boot.
