Manjaro32-architect does not seem to be able to install the base package.

When I installed the CLI system after I completed the installation preparation steps, the installer told me that some packages could not be found.:cold_sweat:
Then, I want to know how to enter the command line mode directly after the installation image is started. I can't start the desktop environment in the virtual machine.:cold_sweat:

Which packages could not be found?

There is no ISO profiles for the installation of 32-bit Manjaro.

All ISO profiles in the official repo is made for 64-bit with a list of packages available for 64-bit.

It appears form your installation error that some of those packages is not available in the 32-bit repo which - I may add - is maintained by one Manjaro user @jonathon :clap: :clap::clap::clap:

What you can do is

  • locate the cloned profile folder on the system ( /usr/share/manjaro-architect/profiles)
  • edit the package list - removing the package systemd-fsck-silent

I think it may even be possible to do inside the architect installer - (Hidden features in manjaro-architect)

Rerun the installer

Hmm. This isn't part of my x86-64 install, so is it a "new" thing?

I wonder whether this is needed as the package version doesn't match the main systemd version...

It is a package used when the silent grub is enabled.

Then the fsck on boot is disabled - but enabled later on by a service.

Any idea where the source PKGBUILD is for this? I don't see it on GitLab or archived on GitHub.

I'll ping @philm; I can just package this and add it to the i686 repos.

I don't know - you probably have checked the repos - extra or community would be my guess.

I reminded me though - I had to push a new PGKBUILD to gitlab - the thing with creating packages - you sometimes forget to add them to the repo.

seems lost in the flux. Since it is an any package, you may simply upload it to manjaro-32 and we may reconstruct the PKGBUILD for documentation.

@jonathon @philm @linux-aarhus One more thing, how to enter the CLI environment directly after booting the installation image, my memory size is not enough to start xfce, and I don't need xfce, and I can't find the built Manjaro32-architect ISO image.:cold_sweat:

OK, the missing package is now in x32-stable so you should be able to complete the installation.
