It should work for an AMD/Intel GPU anyway, i guess !?
("nvidia 440 driver only" as it was meant to point the specific version driver for Nvidia users)

Aside from that, are you working on a future updates coming for the KDE version of your ManjaroWish builds? (.iso /iso-profiles)

Keep up the good work.
Thank you.

yes it will work on amd intel systems
and yes i have only included nvidia 440
driver on the iso.
but its for only when one chooses nonfree.

kde is next on the list.

How does that work, exactly? :thinking:

Ah ok thanks a lot

btrfs snapshots before pacman upgrades.
we keep three snapshots maximum.
so if a bad update makes system unbootable.
like bad systemd update.
we can just rollback to the time before upgrade.
by booting into snapshot from grub menu.
and restoring the snapshot by opening timeshift and select the snapshot to restore and click restore then rebpot.
here we dont need a live usb to do timeshift restore.

and as btrfs snapshots dont consume much space at all.
we dont need to worry about space.
so we are safe from bad updates.
if some bad update do break system
we just rollback and wait until problem is fixed
then update again

although it is not full proof like an backup on external drive but thats something user has to do
we should just make sure user dont suffer because of bad updates.

i do think manjaro should make this default.
but again its @philm 's decision

Thanks for the thorough explanation.

Great idea, that's what Linux Mint does; however, like most distros, they use ext4.

Nothing is foolproof, unfortunately. Look at all the ridiculous warning labels on everything that should be common sense.

Well, since switching the filesystem from ext4 to btrfs probably isn't in the plans anytime soon, maybe suggest a similar (however not as efficient, I suppose) hook for use with ext4?

the problem with ext4 is for backup we use rsync
so we need a dedicated backup location for
backups.

and its not space and time efficient.
thats why i use btrfs.

but yes it can be done.
and is possible to implement.
we should just make partition scheme change

/boot/efi fat32 300mb
/boot ext4 500mb
/ - ext4 15-64 gb 40% size
backup partition
like
/var/backup? -ext4 15-64 gb ?????
/home - ext4 remaining all space 100% size

its possible to have this done though
calamares partition module.
so anyone who choose
erase entire disk
install alongside
replace partition
will have this scheme applied

we can use timeshift-autosnap with some changes so it will backup the / to
/var/backup
before pacman upgrade
and its easy to do
