But it do not want to start!
I know to create an efi entry like

sudo efibootmgr --create --disk /dev/sda --part 1 --label "Precise - GRUB2" --loader \EFI\ubuntu\grubx64.efi

but i never can read anywhere
how to look the directory infrastructure of /dev/sda1

ofthe I read the name from gohlib,
and he want fallow infos

I hope anybody can help me!?


I have had lots of problem making Installation/Architect work properly. But the effort is worth it as Manjaro is so lean. It comes down to ONE simple thing in all my cases. btw I use i3 with LARBS addon (thanks Luke) on sddm as of tradition.

There are som trouble before one reaches full function. I have done it a couple of times and each time I get to the same one conclusion (number 1 below).

  1. Default desktop manager "LIghtDM" does not function to my likings. After install complete and system rebooted (when it goes blank and blinking) enter tty2 (alt+F2) and log in as root. Stop and Disable lightdm (systemctl stop lightdm AND systemctl disable lightdm). Install, enable and start sddm (pacman -Suuyy sddm AND systemctl enable sddm AND systemctl start sddm)
    That made my day.

  2. This is more hints to Manjaro developpers:
    a. speed up mirror list ranking by have optional flag -t and -f (pacman-mirrors -f 15 -t 1 as example)
    (question: if I run above command in shell does this mean I need not run it through setup?)
    b. make not lightdm default in setup, but let choose among options.
    c. include possibility to unmount in case one gets the message "partitions must be mounted first" (that happens often when for example when one has already mounted vfat efi and the goes "done" and setup asks for UEFI place)
    d. I have tried to place manjaro on GPT but it seems dos is preferred (?)
    e. if formatting tools only GPT/UEFI is not recommended than take them away.

HI buddy, does the manjaro on GPT working as per now? For me not yet!
