@UriHerrera Need your help with the installation of Nitrux. Seems that whenever I try installing Nitrux it hangs at error message plymouth failed to start. And it stays like that.
@SolidNas Hi. That's currently an open issue, see Nitrux/nitrux-bug-tracker#17
Hi, first post, non-dev question: I found 4GB one piece .iso(s) and 2GB+2GB .iso(s). Is 2+2 live + installer or is it the same with 4? For now I didn't managed to boot from USB, "corrupt kernel" etc. Also confused with md5sum, are all .iso(s) around the same? Now I download again 4GB.
@vasilis74 To use the two part files hosted at OSDN you have to join them using the command
cat like so
cat nitrux-release-amd64_2021.01.28.iso.part.* > nitrux-release-amd64_2021.01.28.iso. OSDN has a filezise limit and our ISO exceeds this. You can download the ISO directly from our server, Sourceforge or using the torrent provided by FOSS torrents.
@vasilis74 We don't support PPAs; we exclude the program
add-apt-repository. The package that provides the program is not installable unless the user forces it (it wouldn't work anyway as the program expects an Ubuntu release codename, and it will fail to add the PPA). However, if you add PPAs manually, do it at your own risk.
PPA repositories aren't tied to systemd or Ubuntu for that matter; they're ultimately standard Debian repositories that can be used by adding their respective source file and GPG key. Of course, if the PPA package requires systemd, it won't be installable.
As for the mini.iso, no, we don't provide a netboot installation ISO file.
About your flickering issue, have you tried adding
xforcevesa to the GRUB entry?. Which version of the proprietary drive did you install? The legacy driver (390) is not installable from the repositories; only the current 4xx (460) is.
Was your Ethernet card detected? I didn't get that part.
The onboard NIC is connected to my router and I saw many repeatedly notiifcations about connect/disconnect, also some about DHCP. But desktop's freeze happened quickly so I am not sure. Probably I have to completely remove the PCI NIC.
I will try nouveau.modeset=0 and xforcevesa. In the current Devuan I installed 304, I don' t know if 460 plays. With Xubuntu-minimal in another partition I tried 1 or 2, I think 304 and 418, but finally I messed up many things, dependencies also, so now I will try Nitrux over Xubuntu if it boots at last.
In Devuan I used some PPAs with some success, but I had problems with dependencies sometimes, with & without PPAs, so I thought to try Nitrux. Will tell news.
Thank you for all the info & help!
@vasilis74 I have seen that happen sometimes, but never that it freezes the desktop. What network chip does it use?
Adding nouveau.modeset=0 or xforcevesa to GRUB options returned a Plymouth error and hanged booting.
Black thunders on the screen where less when I did not cause pop-ups or when disabled pop-ups, but every time, sooner or later GPU was frozen.
The network was correctly connected when at Connection Settings I switched the Link negotiation from Ignore to Automatic.
When Updates appeared I tried to search for NV43 but it is a very old GPU chip, so nothing came up.
Obviously this PC will stay without proper PPAs, if it's to be away of systemd, but I would try Nitrux on others, that need standard repositories.
Thank you @UriHerrera !
The Plymouth error message that it's displayed will show up regardless, I believe it's related to the boot script.
@Sarcasmo220 The file
openrcdmcryptcfg.conf goes in
/etc/calamares/modules and it's content from what I found should be
--- configFilePath: /etc/conf.d/dmcrypt
Then add it to
/etc/calamares/settings.conf, now the mystery here is where do we add the module, in which step. I'd assume in
exec but in what order.
how am i supposed to install nitrux since they removed znx from their github?
@Phantom-1337 It is. You can find the AppImage at our GitHub organization. However, you must know that the ISO image you download from the website does not work or supports znx. It uses a traditional Linux installer, in this case, Calamares.
