It renders everything properly on my end, but I have an older GPU.
goin back to the mkinitcpio.conf.pacnew. beside changing from " "->( ), the main difference is the set/order of hooks.
old conf read;
HOOKS=“base udev autodetect modconf block keyboard keymap filesystems”
new conf reads;
HOOKS=(base udev autodetect modconf block filesystems keyboard fsck)
changes being “keyboard” coming before “filesystems”, “keymap” removed and “fsck” added at the end. i’ve simply replaced the old hooks line with the new one. will the missing keymap hook lead to any issues.
