Architect iso install story

Adventures with architect iso.
No one said that installation with architect iso would be piece of cake but …
I am a bit confused.
Thanks this link I could manage key issues, but then I got various surprises, happily not at once, but in different tries :-).

I suppose this kind of installation is only for strict development team ? :slight_smile:
Am I right :slight_smile: ?
Thanks for any hints

Which Architect ISO did you use? Try the latest unofficial stable release.

O thanks ! I will
I’ve used custom build iso (build with manjaro git actions and manjaro profiles).

Unfortunately the same
PGP errors
Probably prior start setup, I need to tweak with keys.

I just tested it and also received the PGP import errors. It should be installing the latest archlinux-keyring and manjaro-keyring, not sure why it isn’t.

Yes, I did so (pacman-key --populate archlinux manjaro) and it goes forward.

I was about to post the same thing. :grin:

The story continues :slight_smile:
… and then it goes forward until base packages installation, bad wolf or maybe there were trolls :wink: on work
and i got this not nice error
Grandma is waiting but i am stuck on base packages.

In the meantime I’ve refreshed developer keys, it helped

sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys

after a while a got this error

Hello! I’m sorry that you had to deal with these problems, but unfortunately now I don’t have enough time for open source initiatives. The fact is that I am from Ukraine (probably everyone has heard about the events that take place here) and my family and I had to leave our home and move to a safer region. Most of my time is spent on projects from which I make a profit, and the rest of the time I have to devote completely to my family, as they really need my support now.
However, I plan to return to full manjaro-architect support as soon as possible.

According to the last error, it looks like you just need to change the mirrors.
As for key issues, it looks like the official images have the same problem if you install and run manjaro-architect on them.
Here we need to devote enough time to debugging, which I will try to find, but due to the reasons above, I will not be able to do it quickly.
From what I have already found, it looks like a typo here - manjaro-iso-action/action.yml at main · manjaro/manjaro-iso-action · GitHub

I think it should be

sudo install -m0644 manjaro-trusted /usr/share/pacman/keyrings/
sudo install -m0644 manjaro-revoked /usr/share/pacman/keyrings/

instead of

sudo install -m0644 manjaro-trusted /usr/share/pacman/keyrings/
sudo install -m0644 manjaro-trusted /usr/share/pacman/keyrings/

But I don’t think that’s the only problem. We need to dig deeper.
If someone from experienced users can help with debugging, then I would be very grateful. This will greatly speed up the process.


The difference was not easy to find :wink:
This seems to be a copy - paste - error

Hi beliys
I am sad when I hear what happens in your country.
Keep going brave guys :+1: :v:.
Btw I am your neighbor from Poland.
I understand your priorities.
No problem. I will manage it. These are not my first Linux obstacles.
I will rebuild the iso with your corrections and let see.

According to the last error, it looks like you just need to change the mirrors.

I’ve had chosen five mirrors.
Maybe I’ve caught just the wrong mirror.
I wish you and your relatives all the best.

Hello Guys,
finally I solved my minimal manjaro installation in combined way.
I’ve used architect daily built iso image:
iso image
and done it manually from command line without installer with this usefull description:
However, with this method of installation, be aware that what the installer normally does, you have to do it yourself.
