VSIDO Discussions / Re: uefi Test ISO
« Last post by VastOne on April 03, 2017, 01:42:27 AM »
I have just uploaded new uEFI ISO's that can be downloaded here

Anyone with uEFI/nvme can use this and should be able to use either of the installers

Excellent work Filip!

I have uploaded the uEFI ISO's that can be downloaded here

Anyone with uEFI and/or nvme hardware can use these and both installers should work

That's for sure.

And just to mock me, an osprey dove in and caught a small bass about 50 feet past the limit of my cast.

^ Yes.. that particular uEFI ISO is very old and was designed to help one user with nvme

The tool I use to build (refracta) has been updated with uEFI support so it should go easier

I'll build some new ones later this week

I'll fix the VIM issue

Thanks mate..

No problem, great! :)

@Installer:

Allright, config is pushed and packaged ( in testing brach atm ).
From now on you should be able to simply do a "clone --> build packages --> install" without editing anything.
That is unless I missed something. Will recheck tomorow hopefully, and if all is ok push to master & release.

Changes are:

1. There's now a "vsido-net-interfaces" file that gets copied to "/etc/network/interfaces" -- no need to mess with network module py files anymore.
2. Updated "grub_cmdline_linux" option ( corectly sets "net.ifaces=0" )
3. rEFInd installation disabled -- no need to mess with bootloader module...

And all of that is neatly packaged into "linstaller-config-vsido" .deb, which btw conflicts with "linstaller-config-trios" ( it's a mutual conflict actualy ), so that only one of them can be installed at a time, for the obvious benefits of all parties involved.

For details, take a look here.  :)

Update:

Installing VSIDO UEFI is, umm, mostly fine.
After working around a couple issues it's installed properly using latest installer and config files from the (old) How-To.  :)

Issues @live:

1. net.ifaces=0 is missing from grub/kernel line, resulting in missing network ( in VBox ). Adding it manually solves the issue.
2. For some weird reason, mkfs is refusing to format any drive when called from installer ( compains that "/dev/xyz" doesn't exist, when it obviously does ). Calling it manualy from terminal works.  ???

Issue booting installed system:
1. local-filesystems.service fails trying to mount some UUID's I haven't actually seen exist at all. However, after it spends it's 1min30sec limit system boots normaly.

Now, I'll assume that atleast the mkfs issue stems from maybe SID being a b*tch at the time of ISO build, @Oct 2016. Unless I missed a newer ISO?

Nitpick:
1. You might wanna associate text files with Medit, since Vim is the current default, and it doesn't run when opening a file from SpaceFM ( Vim's .desktop file issue maybe? ).  :)

All in all, it's looking good, but the mkfs kinda rubbed me the wrong way...
It would be great if you have the time to build a fresh UEFI ISO so that we can, hopefully, learn that it was just a temporary Sid quirk.

^ Very nice.. We have the same Cyprus around here in some lakes and the Crappie love to camp all along them

Finding the right depth and lure is the epic challenge

Getting settled in at the campground. One of my favorite parks to photograph - some awesome Spanish moss and creeping vines in the cypress. Now juat wait until dusk when the crappie and white perch come in close to feed.

Thank you Filip... Regarding eUFI I have a separate build environment just for that... so it is easy enough to implement what is needed on each

I appreciate it.. when I get this done I will send you the vsido base files that I have to edit if you want to include them

Cheers!

You're most welcome!  :)

@VSIDO UEFI:
Cool! Found & downloaded...  :)

@config files:
What I need is:
- /etc/linstaller/vsido
- /etc/linstaller/vsido-base
- /etc/network/interfaces

You can just paste them in a post ( easier to copy ) or don't bother if ones in the current How-To are up to date, I'll use them.  ;)

@Changes:
Done! Network and Bootloader/rEFInd!

Btw, don't bother testing them yet, they don't apply without updated configs!

:)
