[SOLVED] BYOI Deepin fails at boot

Post by Kappa » Thu Jul 11, 2019 9:26 am

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

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.
