[SOLVED]ArcolinuxD BYOI ISO fails to enable lightdm service

Post by aw512 » Thu Dec 20, 2018 4:12 am

I am trying to create an ArcolinuxD ISO. The ISO builds but whenever booting the image an error appears saying the lightdm service failed to start.
In the console output I believe the most relevent output is

Code: Select all

xorriso : WARNING : -volid text does not comply to ISO 9660 / ECMA 119 rules
Added to ISO image: directory '/'='/home/aw512/arcolinuxd-build/archiso/work/iso'
xorriso : UPDATE :     105 files added in 1 seconds
xorriso : UPDATE :     105 files added in 1 seconds
xorriso : NOTE : Copying to System Area: 432 bytes from file '/home/aw512/arcolinuxd-build/archiso/work/iso/isolinux/isohdpfx.bin'
xorriso : WARNING : Boot image load size exceeds 65535 blocks of 512 bytes. Will record 0 in El Torito to extend ESP to end-of-medium.
libisofs: NOTE : Automatically adjusted MBR geometry to 1021/72/32
libisofs: NOTE : Aligned image size to cylinder size by 141 blocks
Here is the console output along with my packages list.

1. How do I resolve this?
2. Would adding packages not listed in the Arcolinux packages file cause the ISO creation to fail?
Specifically, I am trying to add
pcmanfm
xarchiver
gstreamer-vaapi

Which are all in the Arch Linux repo.

I would also like to add and AUR package, chromium-vaapi to the ISO. I believe I have seen somewhere that adding AUR is not supported unless a user creates a repo with the packages. Is this correct?

That is correct.

Install them later with a script for now.

I have noticed you left out 2 packages of lightdm...
Get those back in and try again.

Thanks Eric. After a lot of trial and error I managed to build a working ISO as I wanted.

My findings are that the installer needs networkmanager to start the lightdm service and
calamares needs xfce4-session to login to the live user session.
I believe these are critical packages not listed under the calamares and archiso section.

Here is my package list if anyone else wants to use it.
I optimized it for Intel hardware and to use as little resources as possible. The ISO size is 1.14GB
No window mangager is included.

Without an X session running ram usage is less than 100mb.
With AwesomeWM running under X ram usage is roughly 140mb.

You need to learn the packages. Best way is to do it.
Closing this topic.
