[SOLVED] BYOI Deepin fails at boot

i tried to build my own Deepin ISO.

Here are the packages that I chose to install:


ISO "builds and installs correctly" so no errors show up but it always freezes at boot in this place


ANSWER:
YOU NEED TO ENABLE PACKAGE CALLED: "numlockx"
because of lightdm.conf
./archiso/airootfs/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
120:greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/numlockx on
line 120

You can not deduct much from this screen
if you can go to a tty you can see in dmesg what it is trying to do.

Did you include lightdm and its packages?

Sorry for not replying to your first post, I was trying to get to tty, but failed.

I found these lines
#arcolinux-lightdm-gtk-greeter
#arcolinux-lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings

and i enabled them now.

I will report back what happens now

Before you venture in this world of building you need to use the meld tool.

Compare these different githubs

https://github.com/arcolinuxb/arco-xfce

https://github.com/arcolinuxb/arco-xfce-minimal

https://github.com/arcolinuxb/arco-xfce-bare

This is an exercise in "what building blocks do I still need before it breaks" specifically the bare version.

Compare what you have against what arco-xfce-bare has.

Add back building blocks until it works.

Then you can start hashtagging out blocks you think you may not need.

I was using meld, I guess I just need more practice.

And one more thing. I git cloned your deepin config just to double check everything and there too these packages were excluded
#arcolinux-lightdm-gtk-greeter
#arcolinux-lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings

Yes sorry

You are right.

Deepin is the exception ... doing too many things at the same time.

Check all the other files.

One of them must be missing.

I would start with xfce-bare and make myself an deepin-bare ... that is why these tutorials are there so you make your own bare version.
