Post by guido » Fri Nov 16, 2018 12:03 am

Hi,
I'm trying to build an xfce iso and I keep getting this error.....

Code: Select all

cp: cannot stat '/home/guido/arcolinuxb-build/archiso/out/arcolinux*': No such file or directory
How do I fix this?

Thanks

HI

This line is not the error.

A few lines back there is an error. The iso does not get build and the copy line can not copy anything.

So build it again and look higher up in the output.

Did you install the new arcolinux-mirror-git package and change pacman.conf!?

Hi Erik,
I just followed the directions from the BYOI site and didn't say anything about installing the new arcolinux-mirror-git package and change pacman.conf!
Where and how do I go about getting these packages?
Thanks

Hi Erik,
So I'm running Manjaro at the moment so link and video you suggested to follow won't work for me.

I ran the build script again and this I think this is the error....

Code: Select all

###################################################################
1. Setup custom pacman.conf with current cache directories.
###################################################################
###################################################################
2. Base installation, plus needed packages (airootfs)
###################################################################
./build.sh: line 69: mkarchiso: command not found

################################################################## 
Phase 5 : Moving the iso to ~/ArcoLinuxB-Out
################################################################## 

cp: cannot stat '/home/guido/arcolinuxb-build/archiso/out/arcolinux*': No such file or directory
[guido@manjaro installation-scripts]$

Building an ArcoLinuxB iso on manjaro won't work. Because manjaro doesn't have the archiso package (which is needed to build the iso) in their repos. Plus the arcolinux repos would have to be installed as well.

you need to build it from any arcolinux or archlinux installation. If you pick archlinux, you have to install the arcolinux repos and keyring. If you chose arcolinux it will work out of the box.

Thanks for the help!!

Bottom-line for future readers.

You can not build the iso on Manjaro.

Install any ArcoLInux and build your iso that way.
