Cinnamon LightDM no longer automatically start

As mentioned in an earlier message, my icpu is Ryzen 3 3200G (not Intel). The AMD graphics driver is included in the Ryzen cpu.
Also I do not have a file named /etc/mkinitcpio.conf. If I have to create one for the AMD graphics, how do I go about creating it?
Thanks for your assistance.

If you don’t have that file, then there’s something seriously wrong with your installation. /etc/mkinitcpio.conf is essential for rebuilding the initramfs whenever the kernel gets updated, and without an initramfs you cannot boot ─ it contains all your needed driver modules.

Try reinstalling mkinitcpio. :arrow_down:

sudo pacman -S mkinitcpio

I’m afraid I can’t help you with the lightdm problem, though. :man_shrugging:

Thanks to those whose shared their knowledge. I was able to edit the mkinitcpio.conf file and the issue is now solved. Much appreciated.
