Cannot boot iso image built with buildiso

I made a manjaro iso image following this

Kernel version: 6.1

$ buildiso -p blackmanjaro -k linux61 -b stable
==> Done [Build ISO]
 --> Time compress_images: 26.28 minutes
==> Finished building [blackmanjaro]
 --> Time make_profile: 35.40 minutes

but can’t boot

Warning: /lib/modules/6.1.41-1-MANJARO/modules.devname not found - ignoring
ERROR: '/dev/disk/by-label/MANJARO-BLACKMANJAROM_2300' device did not show up after 30 seconds...
Falling back to interactive prompt
You can try to fix the problem manually. log out when you are finished
sh: can't access tty: job control turned off

Please don’t use images - please remove it - instead provide a textual description of the issue.

Please provide more details.

What does the build log tell you?

Failing boot is often a fault during the image transfer to the boot media.

Test the ISO using VirtualBox.

Is the failing boot a virtual machine or bare metal?

EDIT: 2023-08-06T22:00:00Z
For verification I did a build of xfce - no issues of any kind.

 $ buildiso -p xfce -k linux61 -b stable
==> Done [Build ISO]
 --> Time compress_images: 2.48 minutes
==> Finished building [xfce]
 --> Time make_profile: 5.90 minutes

I booted the resulting ISO in a virtual machine using libvirt - no issues.


There is a problem with their modules directory, and their fstab, and to top it off it appears they were trying to cobble it together with ‘blackarch’ somehow.
Well, that last part is just a guess from the name, because there isnt much info. :sweat_smile:
(and their profile states deepin, if that is related)

I have an iso-profile named blackman - no relation to blackarch though :slight_smile:

problem solved by reinstalling manjaro-tools-iso


That shouldn’t be necessary - if you keep your system up-to-date.

The tools package was last build 2023-07-24 - which point to a system not up-to-date as the current package is only 2 weeks old.
