    kernel is unable to find his initramfs. Wrong grub config file?

    @VolcaNoz you should boot with the livecd iso (as if you wanted to reinstall) and chroot from there to your installation:

  • @karasu i tried it just now but not really sure how to do it, this is the codes i enter

    mount /dev/sda5 /mnt //bootpartition
    mount /dev/sda7 /mnt //filesystem
    arch-chroot /mnt

    then i dont know what to do next

  • Be careful, you should do it this way:

    mount /dev/sda7 /mnt
    mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/boot
    arch-chroot /mnt

    Now you can check your system. I’d start with Grub:

    grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub.cfg
    grub-install /dev/sda

    Can you list your /mnt/boot, just in case?
    before running arch-chroot:
    ls /mnt/boot
    or after running arch-chroot:
    ls /boot

    this is the result i got.

  • Looks good. It’s still hanging?

  • @karasu yup, so the initramfs image is corrupted?

  • @karasu i fixed it by reinstalling mkinitcpio and it worked

  • Apologies for necro-ing an old post, but the latest comments were fairly recent, and this thread was the top hit when I searched for ‘lightdm lag’.

    I installed Antergos (with XFCE) on my fairly old desktop yesterday, which has an nvidia 7100/630i. (Absolutely loving it so far!) Lightdm was awfully laggy, though. This thread offered a potential solution: switch the theme.

    @micdoug said in The Login screen for Antergos is incredibly slow:

    Hi. I am having this same problem. I was able to solve it by changing the greeter theme of lightdm. To do this follow the steps below:

    yaourt lightdm-pantheon-greeter

    Open the lightdm configuration file with your favorite text editor, for example vim:

    sudo vim /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

    Change the line “greeter-session=lightdm-webkit2-greeter” to “greeter-session=lightdm-pantheon-greeter”. This lightdm theme has very good performance on my pc.

    pantheon-greeter isn’t very well maintained anymore, so I tried another theme: Litarvan.

    yaourt -S lightdm-webkit-theme-litarvan

    And then made the necessary change in lightdm.conf.

    Looks great and is buttery smooth!
