ok guys, bear with me…I installed xanmod kernel and headers with yay and everything looked good installing but I think I am missing a step. Upon reboot, the xanmod kernel is not in the selection. Only the Zen and original kernel are listed. I am by no means an expert as you can see and think I may have overlooked something?
Did you update grub? Try:
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
I am betting that is the step I forgot ….thanks
I wonder why the PKGBUILD of xanmod doesn’t provide the same post-install experience of e.g. updating grub and rebuilding DKMS drivers, as the same of the Zen kernel does.
that was exactly the issue. I updated grub and rebooted. Thanks again
That isn’t done by the kernels. The kernels don’t know which bootloader you are using. There is a grub hook on eos systems that looks for specific kernels.
