Re: New testing builds

Installation did not go fine over here.
It had problems creating LVM VG of the PV, and also mkfs.ext4 doesn't seem to implement provided parameters (inode ratio setting, root reserved space minimization and max resize capacity). Maybe my CD was borked (?), although it booted fine and the image hash checks out fine. I fell back to the 2010.03 archboot CD, which worked.
Also my laptop refuses to boot both those images when dd'ed directly to usb key, while my normal PC boots fine off them. Using unetbooting it did boot fine, so i'm blaming the laptop for that little issue.

If you did an installation and it went fine, please report:
- x86_64
- Interactive installation
- netinstall, dual arch image
- Network, Ethernet, DHCP, worked fine, so not really relevant
- /dev/sda[123] used for Windows (was pre-installated on the machine), /dev/sda[567] for Arch Linux. 5 = /boot, 6 swap, 7 LVM PV

I have to say that I have never used AIF to create LVM volumes, normally I do that myself. And for now, I will continue to do so tongue

Re: New testing builds

Installation went fine, no problems whatsoever big_smile
Image: archlinux-2010.04.05-netinstall-i686.iso

VirtualBox 3.1.6 : 8GB virtual drive, 512MB RAM
i686
interactive
partitioned HD into 4 with:
   ext4 for /
   ext3 for /boot
   swap
   jfs for /home

As you see, nothing exotic in my setup, but then again, my real desktop doesn't have anything fancy either.
I will give the iso a spin on it tonight, but will use archlinux-2010.04.05-netinstall-x86_64.iso for that.

Thank you guys for yet another superb ISO image! ^^

Well, I would appreciate it if you could help us figure out the problem.  I will need a lot more information.
* You checked the hash before burning it, or hashed the burned cd?
* define "had problems" ? what errors did you get, where? can you run `aif -p interactive -d -l` and post your logfile? what do you see on /dev/tty7 etc etc.
* about the ext4 settings, are you saying that you entered options when you were asked "Enter any additional opts for mkfs.ext4", but they were not applied in the filesystem creation step? can you upload the files that are called /tmp/aif/AIF_BLOCKDEVICES and /tmp/AIF_FILESYSTEMS or something like that? (these files are created after you told it how you want your filesystems to be done)

Re: New testing builds

Dieter@be: As I posted in my bug report: http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/18994?pr … &reported= I believe the problem is caused by the AIF scripts inability to handle spaces in options. I.e. "-s 32M" becomes "-s_32M".

Here is an aif log:

[DEBUG UI ] notify: Welcome to the Arch Linux Installation program. The install process is fairly straightforward, and you should run through the options in the order they are presented. If you are unfamiliar with partitioning/making filesystems, you may want to consult some documentation before continuing. You can view all output from commands by viewing your VC7 console (ALT-F7). ALT-F1 will bring you back here.

Note that despite our careful coding and proper testing there may still be bugs in this software.

When you are doing this installation on a system where some data must be preserved, we suggest you make a backup first

Re: New testing builds

How can I boot it with grub4dos ?

Since you switched to isolinux it doesn't work with my previous menu.lst configuration:

title Arch Linux 2010.04.05-netinstall-i686\nA lightweight and flexible Linux distribution that tries to Keep It Simple.
map --unmap=0:0xff
map --unhook
root (hd0,0)
map /boot/archlinux-2010.04.05-netinstall-i686.iso (0xff) || map --mem /boot/archlinux-2010.04.05-netinstall-i686.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
configfile /grub4dos.lst || chainloader (0xff)
map --unmap=0:0xff

Not even with:

title Arch Linux 2010.04.05-netinstall-i686\nA lightweight and flexible Linux distribution that tries to Keep It Simple.
map --unmap=0:0xff
map --unhook
root (hd0,0)
map /boot/archlinux-2010.04.05-netinstall-i686.iso (0xff) || map --mem /boot/archlinux-2010.04.05-netinstall-i686.iso (0xff)
map --hook
root (0xff)
chainloader (0xff)
map --unmap=0:0xff

Why is that ?

Re: New testing builds

Ultraman, Ashren and others: there was indeed an issue with additonal options for mkfs.*/cryptsetup/.. etc not being processed correctly, and causing problems when creating blockdevices/filesystems with custom options.

however, this should now be fixed.
there are new packages online and how to test them is explained @ http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/18994

I will roll new images with the new packages soon. feel free to try the new packages in the meantime.

I have to say that I have never used AIF to create LVM volumes, normally I do that myself. And for now, I will continue to do so tongue

Well, I would appreciate it if you could help us figure out the problem.  I will need a lot more information.
* You checked the hash before burning it, or hashed the burned cd?

Checked it before burning. So the image was alright, burn could have bumped over a bit tho.

* define "had problems" ? what errors did you get, where? can you run `aif -p interactive -d -l` and post your logfile? what do you see on /dev/tty7 etc etc.

Failure to create LVM VG. The system is installed at the moment, if you really want I could grab another PC and try similar settings, but seems you fixed the bug after all wink Let me know if you want it tested again.

* about the ext4 settings, are you saying that you entered options when you were asked "Enter any additional opts for mkfs.ext4", but they were not applied in the filesystem creation step?

Yes. I'm positive they did not get applied at creation of the filesystem. I change inode ratio (and some others, but that one it most noticeable); filesystem creation took far too long and after reading out the superblock I calculated that the inode size I told it to use was not applied.

can you upload the files that are called /tmp/aif/AIF_BLOCKDEVICES and /tmp/AIF_FILESYSTEMS or something like that? (these files are created after you told it how you want your filesystems to be done)

Since your last posts says you fixed something, I bet you won't be needing those anymore. If I am mistaken, let me know and I'll see if I can reproduce.
Thanks for the fixes smile

Re: New testing builds

Hi Dieter, I installed from the original a couple of days ago, not the net-install but
from the image.  I created a couple of LVM volumes in another console and everything
went fine.  The LVM was not encrypted, etc, just a volume group with a couple of
volumes.

This was on AMD64.  The only problem I had was that grub would not start, just
got the 'GRUB' message and didn't get the 2nd stage.  It was installed to the mbr
(not a partition).  I have another grub I'm booting it fine with however.

Did an update right away not much to update at this point.  Thank you much  for
your work!

when all known issues (ie http://bugs.archlinux.org/index.php?project=6&reported[]=66) have been fixed. the more help i get, the faster this list shrinks wink

then i will build new isos, which, after testing can become official releases.

you know you can use the installer do take care of lvm right..
the grub thing, can maybe explained by incorrect configuration of grub (with the lvm etc)

Re: New testing builds

It worked for me, although I were dissapointed when there was no btrfs alternative. I had to fix that with chroot manually afterwards, which was a huge pain in the ass. There weren't any ways to use an already existing btrfs either.

Re: New testing builds

Successful installation here. I must say I like the changes/improvements quite a bit. Nice work.

- 2010.04.19 netinstall i686
- interactive installation
- dhcp network setup (ethernet)
- manual time setup
- manual disk setup (no lvm or encryption)
    - 3 primary partitions;ext2, swap, ext4; no additional options; no labels

While setting the filesystems/mountpoints, I noticed /dev/sda as an option, which I haven't seen in the previous installers. I also noticed two /dev/sda entries in the bootloader installation dialog. I doubt these are intentional, but since I'm not sure, I decided to mention them. However, they didn't affect my installation.

Re: New testing builds

No problems with core-i686 install from usb on my eee901. smile
But the change from vim to vi came as a surprise for me, and since I couldn't change my mind and use nano without quitting the installer, I had to figure out how it worked, just to get the most important parts configured...

btrfs will still be in testing for quite a while. maybe i could incorporate support into aif and make it available if you do `aif --expert` or something. patches welcome cool

Just to be clear, I was not suggesting btrfs be available. I was merely requesting hatten to clarify his meaning.

i have done quite a bit of work with btrfs in general and would like to see an option.  i have only done limited work with AIF.  when i installed my machine onto a btrfs root, via another terminal, i manually created the filesystem and mounted it to the appropriate places for installation. at the mount part of interactive installation, i let it fail.  i just fixed the fstab later.

i will open another thread for general ideas on btrfs integration points into Arch, but installation options are important.  i have recently updated the mkinitcpio-hook in AUR to support rollback features; this is functional today.  if we can get something of that nature into official repos, and patch AIF to support a 'btrfs' mount/creation handler (im not sure the code yet), we could have rollback support in rolling distro, and more people would be willing to try the bleeding edge with zero(ish) risk.

there needs to be some discussion of default layout/mount options/etc., as there are some ramifications to how btrfs exposes subvolumes (as folders).  we can do some really interesting and exotic things with subvolumes, independent mount options, and snapshotting. we get to think about the "subroot" structure; the hierarchy under the root device.

im going off course; ill start looking into AIF, and try to create patches/packages for integrating btrfs.

Definitely, btrfs goes beyond what other FS'es do, and it may not be straightforward to integrate all subtle details into aif, although the most common features should be possible.
thanks for wanting to help out on integrating the support.
the initcpio hook seems cool. post it on arch-general if you haven't yet. Thomas might merge it if he likes it.

One more installation went well on new Sony vaio laptop (VPCCW26FA/B). This time 64 bit.
Why the modules array has many things banged? With modules auto load option will it not work?
