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.
Here is relevant patch: https://github.com/getsolus/os-installer/pull/2
A screenshot would go a long way.

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?
I just wanted to remind that I submitted a PR against https://github.com/getsolus/os-installer for this issue in July, for your review/testing.

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
parted /dev/nvme0n1p4 align-check opt 1
I hope this long-standing problem will be fixed before the releasing of new Solus ISO
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.

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.

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.
Here is the current list of illegal characters for realname: https://github.com/solus-project/os-installer/blob/eb78acc5bff66d4c9007247f6660f395e6461ca7/os_installer2/pages/users.py#L70

Name. For example, my last name contains an apostrophe, and I cannot use it in my name
Name or username? Usernames cannot contain apostrophes.

Thank you Ermo.

All that out of the way, where/how may I submit the aforementioned PR?
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.

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.

@BTlapinou59 Merged here because it is a more generic issue with AZERTY layouts, affects the likes of Swiss French too.

Kyrios I am aware that the command fixes the issue, however its something that shouldn't be required.
We will be releasing 4.1 Soon (tm). Be patient with us, please!

We have no plans at this moment in time in supporting F2FS.

For the record, i managed to install an other distribution (elementary OS) without taking care of nouveau nor altering anything, with the same hardware of course.

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

Have you tried blacklisting the nouveau driver?
@Rashguir is a friend of mine.
Does a regular nomodeset not work?
