Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

Hi,

I have installed Arch with this script and first of all, great job smile. It's easy and nice smile.

I've got one problem. I'm using gnome and after install, my gnome terminal is using some wierd colors. In general, colors are great, but I'm using white background and sometimes the text is barely readable.

Any way to change colors or remove them entirely?

Thanks for help smile

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

Hello everyone,

Hope everyone's December is going well. I recently attempted to install Arch Linux using the AUI script. helmuthdu did a great job putting it together and the work definitely shows in how easy and streamlined the process has become using his script. With that said, I wanted to make you all aware of an error I came up across after running through the aui portion of the install. Once I reboot after the first half of the installation, the system chooses the correct kernel and the following error pops up:

Error: No such device
Loading Linux core repo kernel
Error: no such partition
Loading initial ramdisk
error: you need to load the kernel first
hit any key to continue...

When you hit any key it brings you back to the bootloader.

Just wanted to make you all aware of this error. If you have any idea how to fix this, I'd be interested to hear your ideas.

Thanks and take care.

It's not an issue with the script. Read this for the solution: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=173921

Doesn't work. With iso installation, mount / partition and edit file, save and reboot system.

Need more steps?

Hi TuxStorm,

Thanks for the response. My error isn't a syntax one though. My error seems to be a partition problem. Grub loads up and is able to choose a kernel no problem. The error occurs when the kernel is chosen and tries to boot up.

Hey, change your /boot/grub/grub.cfg for this:

http://pastebin.com/AaPTfqCM

Change UUID - "ad4103fa-d940-47ca-8506-301d8071d467" for your UUID root, how to?

- Boot your ISO installation.
- Mount root partition on /mnt
- Execute: arch-chroot /mnt
- Check UUID with:

ls -l /dev/<disk>/by-uuid

- Modify /boot/grub/grub.cfg with your UUID
- Generate new grub.cfg

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

- Exit
- Umount /mnt

Work's correctly big_smile

pd, sorry my english.

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

I never used grub, only syslinux and always worked fine, no problems so far.
I did an installation today with syslinux (to root partition), also everything went ok.

Sorry, you need execute 'arch-chroot /mnt' to change UUID on installation.

So i execute 'arch-chroot /mnt' after editing grub.cfg using nano? then unmount? sorry I am a noob.

Never mind, figured it all out, summarizing all the steps for everyone who has this problem.

Stick in your USB or DVD and boot from it like normal.

Mount your root partition to /mnt by entering

mount /dev/sdaX /mnt 

find out your UUID by typing
Note: Replace X with your sda number/root partition.

blkid /dev/sdaX

Then it should list xxx-xxxx-xxxxxxx-xxxx , similar numbers. copy it down on a piece of paper.
proceed

arch-chroot /mnt

then edit the /boot/grub/grub.cfg with your UUID. Replace all ad4013-xxxx-xxx lines you find with your UUID

nano /boot/grub/grub.cfg

after your done , type exit and enter

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
umount /mnt

reboot.

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

Note that editing /boot/grub/grub.cfg and then running grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg is pointless since the latter will overwrite the former, recreating it on the basis of /etc/default/grub and /etc/grub.d/* and what it finds on your system. So the editing step is certainly not required.

You should just be able to skip that step - there's no point editing the grub.cfg if you are then going to overwrite it anyway.

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

... Gee... i need check my spam box... got no email from here. sad

The way i managed to get the bootloader working was to install the syslinux.
I also have added a warning about the grub been broken. For now i think we have to wait until they fix it in the upstream.

OFFTOP: Does anyone know if the email service is working? the last email i got from this forum was from 25 november...

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

Script is really nice, but just as a heads up. Maybe I used it wrong but I boot arch from usb, download and ran script. And it format my EFI partition automatic as EXT4.

Well, sorry for that, it's have this option to do it, but it ask if you want to format and if you are sure to format it...
at line 274 in ais:

              read_input_text "Format ${partition} partition" # read OPTION
              if [[ $OPTION == y ]]; then
                format_partition "${partition}" "${MOUNTPOINT}${EFI_DISK}" "vfat" # this will ask you again if you want to format.
              else
                mkdir -p "${MOUNTPOINT}${EFI_DISK}"
                mount "${partition}" "${MOUNTPOINT}${EFI_DISK}"
                check_mountpoint "${partition}" "${MOUNTPOINT}${EFI_DISK}"
              fi

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

If I said no to format it would not continue, it just kept asking again what my EFI partition was.

So I said yes to format it. I can't for sure say it was formated as ext4, but it refused to mount as vfat, gummiboot would not install correctly. And the fstab auto generator said it was ext4. Something did not work for sure. I actually wiped it all, started over following the beginners guide. Then when I was done and rebooted I ran your script to install/setup. Worked much better.

Okay, i will check this again, this is something very problematic if happens...
EDIT: I run the ais script, and so some other ppl i know... nobody had this problem. You may have distracted yourself with something at the format option, this unfortunately can happen sad
EDIT2: Someone had reported this bug too... i'm trying to get what could be...
EDIT3: I found the error, it seems it format to the previous select filesystem when you select to format instead of mount only... Sorry for the inconvenient and thanks for the report. smile

Re: [Script] Archlinux Ultimate Install Script

no problem, I had another issue also. It's not really related to the script, maybe more of a arch problem or noobie problem. The script gave me option to install networkmanager and I choose to do this. Upon reboot I did not have internet access anymore. I use DHCP. I restart the DHCP service and I get internet for a little while then it dies again. The only way to get permanent internet is to set fixed ip and gateway in network manager. I don't know if this is a conflict with network manager and dhcp service, user error or what. As a "noob" when internet is gone you are pretty clueless big_smile

Am I missing the point? In your script all (but not in two cases smile) arch-chroot commands are written as arch_chroot?
