(solved) Install problem ARCHLabs 3.4.0

PostPosted by silverman » Fri Apr 14, 2017 9:50 pm

Hi all, ARCHLabs newbie here...(not new to linux though).. this distro looks brilliant by the way...kudos to the team

Downloaded 3.4.0 no problems - used Calamares for install - on reboot keep getting the following error screen

( 2.372066) platform wdat_wdt: failed to claim resource 4
( 2.372073) ACPI :watchdog : Device creation failed : -16
: : running early hook (udev)
starting version 232
: : running hook (udev)
: : Triggering uevents
: : running hook (memdisk)
: : running hook (archiso)
: : running hook (archiso_loop_mnt)
: : Mounting ‘/dev/disk/by-label/archlabs-201704-x86_64’ to ‘/run/archiso/bootmnt’
Waiting 30 seconds for device /dev/disk/by-label/archlabs-201704-x86_64 …
ERROR: ‘/dev/disk/by-label/archlabs-201704-x86_64’ device did not show up after 30 seconds…
Falling back to interactive prompt
You can try to fix the problem manually, log out when you are finished
sh: can’t access tty; job control turned off
(rootfs )#

Probably something simple ...appreciate any help...

Cheers

Silverman.

did you use the standard harddisk/partition configuration or did you use anything personal...?

Take your time. Abif works, quite a lot of choices to go through. Good luck! :)

Hi Erik and Blaze,
In the end after several attempts with abif - still the same outcome - so my thinking was that maybe the installing has been fine - either grub is playing games or the UEFI is getting in the way - or both - decided to try dual boot with another distro I had downloaded recently 'Antergos' - sure enough the 'Antergos' showed up - but not Archlabs - installed and ran grub-customiser - success. Thinking of running the Archlabs install again - this time downloading and running grub-customiser before rebooting - hoping that the problem will have been solved.

What is your daily driver OS? I mean your main OS that you dual boot with?

Possibly could be a grub configuration error. Can you run os-prober from your main OS?

Make sure you follow grub guidelines when updating it.

great you got it fixed
i have used grubcustomiser more than one - to the rescue
now I only have a pack of SSD's and switch between theme - single boot for me
https://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair-cd/ is also a great tool to fix things
i have used and donated to the guy as it repaired the mbr on my son's pc... was experimenting with dual boot at the time

Up and running as a single boot now...taking time now with set up/config etc...have bookmarked your tutorials Erik..need to understand how to add more conky's to the default one's...also like the look of ncmpcpp + visualiser etc (another learning curve) are there any tutorials on this that you know of?

Screenshot - posted on Eye candy linux...

Thanks and regards to you and blaze...

P.S. Nightowl...apologies..answer to your question..don't normally have a dual boot setup...have the usual Windows box for work etc ...my linux boxes tend to be single boot to avoid complications...just end up distrohopping...thanks anyway...

Glad you got it fixed. Single boot is the way to go with linux, a great learning experience. Im always playing around with configuration. Ive set m HDD up now with Just Archlab and what i like to call a recovery partition that just has pure arch with no desktop, just console. But i am thinking of having one more distro for multiboot when it is out from Archbang.

take my advice
use desktops - no laptops
use ssd
open up the side of your desktop
and switch ssd like you would switch shoes
enjoy :geek:
