Description

Test results of systemd-cli-x86_64-netinstall iso built from a118622a99691d ("unified" branch)

I built the iso and tested installation on a laptop, going by Installation Guide. Here are quirks I encountered:

  • (outside of chroot) had to manually put this to /etc/resolv.conf
    domain lan
    nameserver 192.168.1.1
    openresolv package would take care of it automatically (at least it does on my regular Parabola install)
  • (outside of chroot) default /etc/pacman.conf has pcr-testing repo enabled
  • (inside chroot) /etc/hosts is empty by default. Should contain localhost?
  • (inside chroot) `modprobe efivars` doesn't work - module not found
  • (inside chroot) on EFI, `grub-install` doesn't work without efibootmgr
    installed in /mnt. Can be installed from outside chroot with
    `pacstrap /mnt efibootmgr`
  • (inside chroot) on EFI, grub-install doesn't work without mounting EFI
    partition. Can be mounted from outside with:
    mkdir /mnt/boot/efi
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi # /dev/sda1 is fat32 EFI partition
  • After installation with GRUB, I had to manually add its entry
    (FS1:/EFI/grub/grubx64.efi) - likely due to laptop's EFI FW being wonky.
    Probably worth a mention in GRUB section.

Otherwise install went fine.

there is a pre-release systemd/LXDE ISO for x86_64, for others to try - other than the desktop, it should be essentially the same as the CLI ISO described in the OP

https://repo.parabola.nu/iso-nightly/

if any problems are found with that one, please do add them to this ticket
