Want to try and help test dracut? Now is the time!

That is because dracut --force alone doesn't tell it what name to use for the initramfs so it probably writes a default file that nothing is looking at.

Huh.. Then I don't know how to target it, basically is the issue. :slight_smile:

So, next question is. I noticed plymouth is still in use, and in that being the case... Any ideas on how to load my plymouth theme into it, whether it be Garuda's default, or one I want to use that's already available and was in use before? :slight_smile:

sudo dracut /boot/initramfs-{kernel}.img

dracut shouldn't require any special configuration for plymouth. It should just work.

OKay, well, it certainly did not pick up my previously configured cybernetic theme I was using. :slight_smile:

Did install it, works so far. Got a bunch of missing modules while installing tho

Don't know, are any of them needed?

And the ISO-link gives me a 404.

All looks good to me! The ISO did get auto cleaned by our infrastructure by now though, you're right. I have some work to do before I can release another one.

Is this tool only for people who plan to develop something using it? Do I gain any advantage from installing this?

Hmm
Need to add

nvme-cli
tpm2-tools

To packages-root

What for? Doesn't seem like that's necessary to me.

New testing ISO: https://us-ny-mirror.garudalinux.org/iso/garuda/kde-lite/221116/

You can optionally also add some more parameters like checksum=y to verify the md5 checksum as well as copytoram=y. In theory, the latter should allow you to install onto the USB drive you used to boot even, if you get those kinds of forum requests :wink: (These parameters were already supported before, I just ported them to our dracut modules)

Can we get this as GRUB option? :eyes:

Edit:

I'm getting an odd error in Calamares on this ISO, "There are no partitions to install on."

There are plenty of partitions to install on though.

:point_up_2: Disregard all that, I managed to fix the issue. The problem was related to something I had done myself, not Dracut or Calamares or anything else.

Installing just fine now. :slightly_smiling_face:

Well I set it up in a VirtualBox enviroment and it works so far. Anything specific to check for?

PS. Only worked with EFI, not with BIOS. Installed with BIOS but didn't find anything to boot from afterwards.

Seems VM is not the problem.

The new ISO looks good as far as I can see. I've added and removed a few kernels just to test and I haven't seen any problems crop up. I just have an IGPU on this machine so maybe not too difficult a test. :smirk:

On the stock ISO there is no Plymouth, which is normal for KDE Lite but there is an error message before SDDM loads, it says:

[FAILED] Failed to start Setup Virtual Console

It shows again while shutting down. I don't have the message on my normal KDE Lite installation (same machine), only the Dracut one.

I'm not sure the significance of the error message, or if it even matters. I read through a couple threads that said this is caused by invalid entries in /etc/vconsole.conf but mine looks like this:

FONT=ter-220n
KEYMAP=us

I didn't set those manually, but from what I can tell those values are valid.

Other than typos in /etc/vconsole.conf I found this error message in some bug reports for Open SUSE or Fedora/Red Hat which implicated Dracut, but the reports all seemed to be old and/or solved.

What about some journalctl? :stuck_out_tongue:

I do see the font it is looking for, ter-220n, is not in /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts/ so perhaps that is supposed to be set to something else?

Where does that value come from?

Seems like this is because we don't have terminus-font installed on KDE-lite. Fixed here.

Here.

Works fine for me in bios.
