Moderation Note: This was split from Easy ways to restore snapper btrfs snapshots?
I tried installing all 3 and tested booting from a snapshot. However when I boot from a snapshot, I’m stuck at Reached Graphical Interface boot, it just keeps refreshing. I’m not able to go into a tty to try and sort out what’s happening.
I used the above page to install snapper manually along with grub-btrfs as I had not done it during installation with Calamares tool.
I’m having Endeavours Artemis with xfce and lightdm as my DM.
The issue is probably that you didn’t install the
grub-btrfs-overlayfs hook in
/etc/mkinitcpio.conf. This is required if you are using lightdm.
I think that
snapper-support from the AUR was recently updated to do this for you.
After adding that, run
sudo mkinitcpio -P.
Once that is done any future snapshots you take should be OK.
Thanks a lot!
I had tried that first but missed adding the 2 files mentioned at step 1 here : https://github.com/Antynea/grub-btrfs/tree/master/initramfs
It works for me now, just tested the backups from boot. Was driving me crazy, I can go to sleep with peace of mind now.
