Manjaro's Kernel does not load if using a different distro grub dual booting.


Oh Manjaro, you're Kernel and grub setup is buggy, oh so buggy, and I thought better of you.

I Installed Manjaro first, then Slackware, it says you want lilo, I say no, and do not install it, going back into Manjaro and just running update-grub, no problems. Everything boots.

I installed Linux Mint it installs its own grub no matter what. After finishing setting it up, post install stuff, I reboot to go into manjaro to reestablish the grub from its distro, I get a Kernel panic, then I get pissed, upset and confused, for a brief moment, then try booting again into Mint, rerun installing grub -> sda, update it, reboot, Kernel Panaic with manjaro again, turn it off, turn it on, and go into slack, install grub using its grub, repeat, reboot, it luckily does not even let me get that far.

instead of even trying to boot manjaro it just tells me I need to load the kernel first and lets me go back into the grub boot listing. and even supergrub2 cannot get it to boot, major disaster here.

Even if I use up hours of time trying to figure out what to write in a 40_custom file to get it to find Manjaro's kernel so it load that, instead of whatever it is doing. that is not a fix, it is a workaround.

the only thing for a quick fix is reinstall it last, like a windows dual boot setup where one OS first then Linux last.

that is not how it is suppose to be, it is not windows, it is Linux ,and should cohabit with other Linux in a grub without this issue.
So I am "locked" out of Manjaro for the time being...

Why can't they just get along?

I just reinstalled it, as looking into it, arch uses something completely different then the majority of Linux Disto's use. Apple clone mentality if you ask me.

I had this problem, too: I reinstalled two times because I was not able to find an easier solution to the problem until I found this...


https://forum.manjaro.org/t/kernel-p...n-boot/42803/7


The 7th post explains what to do in case of kernel panic:

When Ubuntu grub menu appears, press ‘c’ at the menu and we’ll get to the grub prompt (grub>).
Type in

grub> search.file /etc/manjaro-release root
grub> configfile /boot/grub/grub.cfg

You will be presented with your original manjaro grub menu.
Use this and boot to manjaro.
When booted up to manjaro installed OS, at terminal

sudo grub-install /dev/sda
sudo update-grub

Done.

Many thanks to Gohlip, a very skilled Manjaro user!
