Buildiso hangs and will not finish

In building latest ISO of Cinnamon, everything seems fine until it gets to “Creating temporary files…” then it just hangs. No errors, no logs ( that I can find).

I have latest iso-profiles and manjaro tools, I cleaned out of all of caches. I tried building from /var/lib/manjaro-tools as well as from local directory… nada.

Any ideas?

Please use linux54 kernel when you use buildiso. Some say linux59 might work also. There is an issue with temporary files creation.

I can confirm that linux59 does indeed work. Thank you.

The issue only appears to be with linux 510.

Not only you can’t use linux510 to build, you also can’t include it in the build, because the iso won’t boot.
