Quoteyou can probably axe the 'proc' line as well.
QuoteI am perplexed.. I can successfully install and on the first reboot from the installation V-Box sees grub and efi and all is good...
QuoteDoes the efi partition need to be anything special other than fat16? Does it need to be sda or sda1? Does it need to be flagged as a boot device from gparted?
QuoteAnd there is nothing I can do to change it during the installation.. it is something that needs to be added or edited after the install
QuoteI have finished building and testing a new ISO for testing uEFI hardware and it has been uploaded to the test download page
Quote from: VastOne on April 05, 2017, 04:56:40 PMI have a good understanding of the preseed methodology and what it can do but have never used one in the installer to know how to make the changes.. I could use a How To on it if there is one. I did a search and have found very little info on itRegarding the Guest Additions, can't you just install them on your end with the ISO? they had a huge amount of space to the ISO if I include them

It's at "/var/log/installation.log".Attached is the log file Filip.To be clear; Using the 02Apr ISO was very "painfully" installed. The attached log file is from the successful install tonight of the 04Apr ISO. This time the install went A LOT smoother. It DID create the new UEFI entry in the NVRAM/BIOS. (vsido_x64 is the name of the uefi entry) This worked at the first shot tonight on the new install. Last time not so much. In short, the install went perfectly (exceptions already mentioned by VastOne, and totally expected) including installing grub-efi-amd64 or grub-efi correctly. Yes I did setup drives with gparted BEFORE running the installer to avoid the mkfs error. After reboot, the expected 90 sec delay occurred. Again, easily fixed. I noticed a difference this time with the installer when choosing not to specify a swap partition. On reboot, the 'swapfile' line was NOT in fstab as it was last time on the 02Apr ISO.
...Installing for x86_64-efi platform.Installation finished. No error reported....Found Debian V-SID-O jedi (V-Ger) on /dev/nvme0n1p1Found Manjaro Linux (17.0) on /dev/nvme0n1p5Adding boot menu entry for EFI firmware configurationdone
QuoteI simply deleted the swapfile line in fstab and it solved the 90 sec issue...
Quote from: filip on April 06, 2017, 08:16:29 PM@Jedi:Thanks!Log looks perfectly fine. No errors, and most importantly GRUB is corectly installed and updated ( btw, going by the log, there shouldn't be a need to update it manualy on first boot! ):Installer doesn't support the swapfile at all, so unless we're looking at another "mkfs"-like wierdness, it couldn't have came from installer itself.

As you saw in the log, there was indeed no need of any grub finessing With the 02Apr ISO it warned me about not choosing a swap file but that it was fine to proceed. On the 04Apr ISO, this did not happen, and the line in fstab did not show up either. (mkfs? beats me) All in all, a pretty impressive result and jump forward for VSIDO...My initial testing with the 02Apr ISO should probably be totally disregarded. I did most of it in the garage. Never a conducive work environment. Turns out it's a lonely winter up here! I really need some Spring...
Quote from: VastOne on April 08, 2017, 10:29:10 PMHAHA ... the garage at Jedi's is a definite place for the mind to relax and chill.. to the point of grand illusions
Quote from: VastOne on April 08, 2017, 10:29:10 PMA perfect install .. no delays, a perfect bootAnd STILL less than three minutes even with new procedures during the installation I also attached is the installation log of the install if you wanted to check it out
