Building a manjaro32 ISO



Bumpy road to create new Manjaro32 ISO

It has not been so immediate, here’s the report

  • manjaro-tools-{base,iso,pkg,yaml)-git are quite old too, yaml version is 0.15.2 and likely isn’t patched for manajro32 because buildiso fail to retrive all packages (as seen before when i686 packages has been moved away from official repos)

  • Apply manjaro-32.patch fail and part of it need to be cut off, then it work

  • Calamares need a rebuild against the latest boost-libs

  • `~/.config/manjaro-tools/ is owned by root and iso-profiles.conf was setted to:
    Is normal for both?

[manjaro32] Out-of-date Manjaro package report

I (or someone) need to spend a bit of time updating the patch for 0.15.8.

There’s a “known issue” with qt5ct and its gtk2 theme. Any other theme works fine. If this is a default in the iso profile then it needs to be changed to e.g. export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2.

IIRC Calamares was rebuilt fairly recently - but if boost has had an update since then, then fine, rebuild is needed.

No idea; I haven’t done any iso building work for at least a couple of years.
