Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

$ qemu-system-x86_64 -kernel vmlinuz_archboot_x86_64 -initrd initramfs_archboot_x86_64.img -append "cgroup_disable=memory rootfstype=ramfs" -m 2048
qemu: linux kernel too old to load a ram disk

When I extract the kernel and initrd from the iso, all works as expected. Could it be that the boot files are corrupt on the server?

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

I have to check this. Thanks for the report.
From where did you download the files?

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

Yes: there's a text prefix to the files on the server:

Setting input-charset to 'UTF-8' from locale

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

I went round in circles for quite some time with this one. Serves me right for not verifying the .sig files tongue

[edit:] Turns out the signatures are actually valid for the corrupted files.

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

Found the error, iso extraction was wrong, fixed in 2022.01-71. Will upload new files when mirrors are synced.
Thx for reporting this issue.

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

I see this error when upgrading the archboot package:

:: Running post-transaction hooks...
(1/6) Registering binary formats...
/usr/lib/binfmt.d/archboot-aarch64.conf:1: Failed to add binary format 'qemu-aarch64': No such file or directory
error: command failed to execute correctly

And a similar error on boot:

systemd-binfmt[688]: /usr/lib/binfmt.d/archboot-aarch64.conf:1: Failed to add binary format 'qemu-aarch64': No such file or directory

It looks like this file is getting parsed/run by

systemd-hook binfmt

Should it belong to archboot-qemu-aarch64? Which then might need a dependency on one of qemu-arch-extra/qemu-headless-arch-extra that provides the qemu-aarch64 binary?

Thanks for your work on this project smile

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

Yep, sorted - thanks.

On a related note. Is there a simple way to avoid having all of a system's initramfs images rebuilt everytime the archboot package is updated? Unless I've missed something this seems unnecessary.

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

This is normal due to change on initcpio install files.

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

I'm trying to use Archboot with a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (gen 6) under UEFI. While archlinux-archboot-2022.03.16-21.46-latest-x86_64.iso boots OK, I receive an "error: out of memory" message when using archlinux-archboot-2022.03.17-15.45-x86_64.iso and selecting the default entry. The notebook has 16 GB RAM.

I need the larger image as I need wifi (this being a laptop) to complete the install.

Is there anything I can do to workaround this?

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

You could try add_efi_memmap parameter on boot commandline.
Can you switch to legacy boot in BIOS?
Quick google shows:
Try rmmod  tpm on grub commandline.

Re: 2022.05 archboot ISO hybrid image released

Thanks @tpowa. add_efi_memmap did not resolve it, but adding rmmod tpm to the first line after the menu entry allowed successful boot.
