@DataDrake No need for spite. At least we now know how things stand. Which is a good thing. Thanks.

No. We have our own installer for a reason, even if it does have fewer features at the moment.

so-lo added a comment to T1216: LVM Encryption keyboard layout.

Looking at the current installer sources (https://github.com/getsolus/os-installer) it seems that creating /etc/kernel/cmdline.d/50_keymap.conf would be rather trivial since there is already code to create the resume file here: https://github.com/getsolus/os-installer/blob/master/os_installer2/postinstall.py#L708

Got it. I opened https://github.com/getsolus/help-center-docs/pull/186 to add some hints to the help center docs in the meantime.

Yes, it's a bug in the installer. It won't be addressed until we rewrite the installer.

so-lo added a comment to T1216: LVM Encryption keyboard layout.

This seems to still be an issue on the 3.9999 release. I configured disk encryption and a German keyboard layout in the installer. After finishing the install and rebooting I got the US layout at the password prompt. Manually modifying /etc/kernel/cmdline.d/50_keymap.conf did the trick. Is this a bug with the installer?

The easiest way is to just install it on a separate USB drive.

To my knowledge, what you are trying to do requires grub for both BIOS and UEFI installs. We only support GRUB for BIOS installs, not UEFI. So yes, if you want UEFI support it will need to be a separate install.

Note: Solus is not intended to support both BIOS and UEFI at the same time. There is no practical reason that a desktop user would need that.

You can boot from grub, just not on UEFI. We use systemd-boot for UEFI.

We aren't a normal distro so expecting a normal install doesn't make any sense. Solus is intended to be installed on a normally partitioned harddrive. It also doesn't use grub for UEFI installs which is likely part of your issue. Sorry, but what you are asking for is not something we support.

Solus isn't intended to be run as a live system from a USB for everyday use. You can install it to a USB drive that is treated like a normal HDD/SSD. Our live environment is configured significantly differently from other distros which is why you are having so many issues. MultibootUSB installs may be more common in the Linux realm, but they are not as common as you think.

We have zero interest in using someone else's installer. Ours is overdue for an overhaul, but I have higher priority projects in my queue.

You can always fix partition errors yourself by moving partitions around (assuming the filesystems contained in them support it). But that's also going to copy everything in the partition around.

I just checked what happens if you have the installer resize a windows partition, and it does the same behavior. It leaves 32 sectors between the partitions, which causes the alignment to be off.

JoshStrobl closed T2071: Installer Wifi/location detection problem as Wontfix.

Small correction, the only item I was going to work on was getting the I.P. address of the user, which was done previously via a /location endpoint. This was replaced with our new infrastructure. The issue at hand is not explicitly related to geolocation but rather network connectivity. I don't see this being resolved until we have some new installer.
