I need to create a custom Manjaro KDE ISO to be able to install it on a friend’s computer. Current ISO with Kernel 58 doesn’t work on my friend’s computer, the live media boots to a broken desktop mostly blackscreened but with things trying to draw/popup but glitching in and out, broken.
I found an old ISO Manjaro 17, with kernel 4.14 and it works perfectly, installs properly. But the issue is that it is not able to update to current Manjaro version, first issue was with ZSTD, then with the keys, then all package were ‘corrupt’ because probably even with all new keys added/accepted, it wasn’t working properly, whatever, let start over now I know where the issue is.
So the issue for the old computer is to boot and install it with an old kernel. The problem is that I’m new to creating an ISO. I have found an archived page with all the needed info, however, I’m confused about the kernel customization, as the page tells to modify the line
kernel= (in the profile.conf file I supposed, right?), but the line doesn’t exist in profile.conf so I’m not sure, do I simply create this parameter and set it? before going back and forth testing things trying to figure it out, I would like a confirmation from someone who knows exactly, so here I am.
The page I’m using for reference is this one Build Manjaro ISOs with buildiso - Manjaro Linux
I also have found this thread but that doesn’t really help me Create Manjaro Custom ISO?
So just to make sure, do I modify ~/iso-profiles/manjaro/kde/profile.conf and add
kernel=linux414 on a new line, or am I misunderstanding?
I just want the same ISO as the original current Manjaro KDE, I just need to change kernel 5.8 to kernel 4.14 to install a working Manjaro and go from there.
Thank to anyone able to 100% confirm what to do.
