"archinstall" script buggy?

In the section to enter disk partitions and mount points, the prompt says "enter blank when done".
I expect to enter nothing but the Enter key.
The prompt repeats itself in an infinite loop no matter what is entered.

Re: "archinstall" script buggy?

Moving to the guided installer section.

Is the archinstall.log generated? Can you post it?

@Torxed any pointers?

Re: "archinstall" script buggy?

If you want to keep the existing partitions, it looks like archinstall requires you to mount at least two, the root partition at "/" and a boot partition (the efi partition) at "/boot".

Thanks. The installer gave no hint of this.

Apologies for the confusion, I will make this a bit more clear for the next version.
The partitioning is the next main focus of re-working.

Apologies for the delay in answering as well, I still get no notifications from this sub-forum.

You mean even after clicking "Subscribe to this forum"?

Yepp, asked for support on IRC but haven't heard anything yet.
I do get notifications after subscribing to individual threads however, like this one. But I'd have to actively subscribe to each topic.

Re: "archinstall" script buggy?

Does the installer only work with UEFI systems?

If I try booting the iso from a USB stick (in Legacy mode) I get an error. If I boot in UEFI mode, the installer only gives me the option to install a UEFI Arch Linux.

I use BIOS bootmode and an MBR disk (and no separate /boot partition...)

Re: "archinstall" script buggy?

Looks like bios/mbr support has been added[1] [2] in version 2.2.0 which was released 2 days ago [3].

[3] https://github.com/archlinux/archinstal … tag/v2.2.0


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.
