First of all - big thanks to the OPi4LTS distro maintainers for the effort and time.
Second of all - things are not working on my side.
DD’d image to micro sd card. Image launches successfully.
- Initial setup will be rebooted by dismissing some late option.
- The big problem is that installation gets infinitely stuck on post-install clear up phase. Gave it a full 24 hours, nothing. The installer is not dead, pointer is blinking non-stop.
Cutting of the power brings user back to the installer with a little twist - user is being asked to type in the root password for the root auto login. The password was set in the previous installation attempt.
Updating system through console with pacman -Syu brings up allot of problems for a release version.
Huawei cloud as a first mirror - big mistake. And it is now “[country/company] - bad” kind of mistake. Huawei forcefully closes connection while the update is going. I am currently situated in Asia/Kyrgyzstan, it is most certainly not a weak connection error.
PGP sign mismatch or corruption.
Had fun mashing enter for ~300 times.
At first pacman tries to get the keys, says something about corruption and goes on further to re-download the whole system worth of packages.
The updater tool stops the update process on the initial PGP key download.
Thank you for your attention.
