Latest archiso update throws error: Profile 'install' does not exist

Getting the following error message when doing a build with the latest update (49-1) to archiso:

[mkarchiso] ERROR: Profile '/distro/local/live/base/x86_64/install' does not exist!

Anybody know what this is? No results from google.

How do you invoke mkarchiso?
Are you perhaps using some old build.sh script? The commands they used (e.g. mkarchiso install, which I'm guessing produced your posted error) are not supported by mkarchiso anymore.

Re: Latest archiso update throws error: Profile 'install' does not exist

yeah, i use a customized build.sh that's based on an original that's a few years old. i have had to update it a couple of times, but otherwise, i've used basically the same script at least twice a month, for years, right up to the present. so whatever changed was introduced in v49. to get my most recent build (yesterday) i had to downgrade to 48.1.

i'll take a look into merging my customizations into the v49 build.sh then. this is a pain in the neck for anyone who customizes their build.sh.

Re: Latest archiso update throws error: Profile 'install' does not exist

@nl6720 ok. i'm seeing an equivalent for 'install', but no equivalents for 'init', 'run', 'pkglist' or 'prepare'. when using archiso to build an entire customized distro, you can't boil mkarchiso down to a single command. i have customized overlays that have to occur at certain times during the build otherwise they don;t work, so mkarchiso's functions need to have some degree of granularity. can you provide the equivalents for the above commands, please?

Re: Latest archiso update throws error: Profile 'install' does not exist

looks like those commands were deprecated with archiso 47 and have now been removed, see https://gitlab.archlinux.org/archlinux/ … d324f5a2ea

A quick check of README.profile.rst  and  README.rst  suggests the options for profiles have been extended a lot, maybe you can achieve what you want with a profile ?


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: Latest archiso update throws error: Profile 'install' does not exist

The old mkarchiso commands are removed and will not be coming back. The new way of doing things should work for most use cases.

What exactly are these customizations that prevent you from using archiso v49+ ?
