Hi,
Feedback after installing this distribution in a Virtual-Machine using first KVM and then VirtualBox.

1) KVM:- On my Base Antergos system if I install ArchLabs in KVM, It runs fine in Live Mode, However Calamares can't detect my Disks. Open Gparted and I can see /dev/vda1. I reckon that it is because it says /dev/vda and not /dev/sda, Calamares is freaking out and crashing. It just would not detect my disks.

2) VirtualBox, No problems at all, Live Session takes a lot of time to start. Once started it works just fine. Installation works as smooth and completes fine.


Branding:- The Calamares Contains pure Arch Branding on tope left corner and top bar top left. Could this be changed to sow only ArchLabs Branding?

Scripts:- Scripts works perfectly. Installs apps in a jiffy.

Apps:- Qt apps show bigger font size then GTK Apps. This is a universal issue, Happens even on my Base Arch Install. So not very critical. We could replace Octoppi with Pamac which in my view is a better option, Is GTK Based and would not have font issues like Octopi.

Final thoughts:- Kudos to the team for achieving this. Calamares takes this one notch higher. Very very well done. Appreciate all your efforts.

Really quick system, Very well put together,

Just a thought, did you try the Architect installer for KVM?
