crom5 added a comment to T7285: Solus Installer does not align partitions to 4KiB boundaries for best practices.

06.12.2019: Josh Strobl: "we're well aware that our ISOs are a bit long in the tooth and could use a refresh. There's some AMD related fixes (for new hardware) in the Mesa 19.3 development series that we're wanting to wait for (otherwise we'd be shipping a new ISO with only half-working support for newer AMD hardware, largely that support coming from the kernel and LLVM 9). Once Mesa 19.3 stable is released and validated by our community we'll be putting out a new ISO."

@livingsilver94, we aren't in testing mode for a new ISO, so patching the installer isn't a high priority right now.

This issue has been hitting Solus for a lot of time and it weakens newcomers' will to try the distro. It's OK if Core Team doesn't have the time to fix the issue, but what's exactly the blocker when a user kindly provided a PR?

Is this a sure way to check for correct alignment? :
parted /dev/sda align-check opt 1
parted /dev/nvme0n1p1 align-check opt 1
parted /dev/nvme0n1p2 align-check opt 1
parted /dev/nvme0n1p3 align-check opt 1

On clean or new disk, a way to align properly is to install on manually prepared partitions - root /, swap. Tested with MBR and GPT. This trick doesn't work if one want enable LUKS encryption.

michi-zuri added a comment to T4297: Keyboard layout after installation is not correctly set on login screen.

But then I didn't found the "Login Screen" button mentioned by franklinovitch.

Unfortunately it seems like with the new settings interface, this button has been removed.
So now you can't even fix this problem anymore.

I have implemented a minor fix for this by implementing what tomocafe suggested.
However I have to complete some testing, and then I will submit a PR.

tomocafe added a comment to T8193: Add support for user names with apostrophes.

Perhaps we could just replace all ' (U+0027) characters with ’ (U+201B) in realname since that is the typographically correct symbol to use in names anyway. Then we don't have to worry about it colliding with a Python quote character.

I was intending to email the team, but didn't find a place to do so. By way of very brief introduction, I was on the Antergos team early on and wrote the advanced partitioner, as well as porting pyparted to python3. Not that this makes me an expert by any means, just offering to help where I can as I quite like this distro. I want to say you've done very nice work on this distro and the installer. My time is limited these days, but I'd like to offer my support/knowledge/code how I can.

tuxayo updated subscribers of T8031: installer: Keyboard layout step skipped and set to None when using Esperanto as system language.

Hi @JoshStrobl , it doesn't seems to be a duplicate of T1216, because the issue is that I don't get to choose the layout so it's defaulted to qwerty. So it is normal that the initramfs gets a qwerty layout.
In the mentioned ticket, they can choose their layout in the installer. While in this case, I can't choose a layout in the installer, that's the issue.

nomodeset

, then

rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau

nomodeset rd.driver.blacklist=nouveau

but i still got the same result... :/
