I am writing this from my own generated iso, with XFCE environment.  8)
I first made a normal version without Xorg... and it works fine: that's strange because of the problem I am about to explain.
[Edit1]Oy yeah, I know why it works. The first time I was following more closely the instructions, and have set
export NUTYX_TMP=/mnt/nutyx_tmp
later I created tmpnutyx in my home directory instead, and redid the git clone[/Edit1]

Then I did new install-nutyx -ec after setting again LFS and NUTYX_TMP.
But my next reboot came to a boot: prompt... without much I could do.

I then realized that a few Isolinux files were empty... like isolinux.menu ... etc.
Then looking to the output of mkiso, I have seen that there were errors about 4 isolinux files of style:
sed /home/paul//home/paul/someisolinux.something was not found.
I come to understand that the problem seems that the sed expects the NUTYX_TMP variable to be local.
So I changed:
export NUTYX_TMP=/home/paul/tmpnutyx
to:
export NUTYX_TMP=tmpnutyx

then rerun bash $TMP_NUTYX/scripts/mkiso
and this time the errors were gone... and the generated iso booted.

Thanks! I was having the same issue. The
Code: [Select]
boot: prompt meant that it would only boot in EFI. I tried what you suggested and made a temporary folder in my home folder, and after making a new .iso, it will boot in either BIOS or EFI.

Not sure why, but those files that you said were empty on yours...weren't empty on mine even though I was getting that boot: prompt.

Thanks again!

I have tried to build the ISO like suggested.
But when I enter the installation, then come to do:

Code: [Select]
mkinitramfs `basename /lib/modules/*` -nfit does not work because the only directory in /lib for me is services

I just don't know why.


Edit: That was because I had /etc/install-nutyx.conf and some /etc/install-nutyx.conf.d... so install-nutyx was not doing it's full job.

NuTyX 11.2 is very bad for this... because it try to copy as much as possible into RAM when booting live.
And this is very long... but after, you can remove the USB key, and programs start fast because they are
in memory. ...

They was a very good reason for that. Today many computers like laptop and INTEL tablets comes with only one USB port. So nice but if for example the pad or even worth the keyboard not working for any reason, you have the chance to plugin a mouse/a keyboard.

I can fix a lot of tings, but they really need to be relevant. For the username/password in the live system, as you probably knows it's just the lifetime of the live system. So typing just a single character  will make it...

It's very easy to build your own ISO with your own setting (including password less user). Just need to be motivated. You have no idea what you can do with NuTyX. Just do not assume anything.

Yeah... I tend to be the bad guy that come with what is wrong not mentioning what is cool.
But hey, if I need to express what is wrong, it's because it's good enough for me to choose
this distribution to be used... and get to see things I like less and wish would become 'fixed' in the future.

Now, I admit I tend to used Linux differently than others.
In part to test and erase hard disks.
So for me booting time is precious because I just test a disk 3 to 5 mins, then shutdown,
change hard disk, and reboot.

NuTyX 11.2 is very bad for this... because it try to copy as much as possible into RAM when booting live.
And this is very long... but after, you can remove the USB key, and programs start fast because they are
in memory. But for me, I would like a 'boot live fast' option... that would copy a minimum to RAM, if at all.

I made a USB key with latest version.
If, when booting, I give an empty password to the user I define, then I won't be able to login...
neither in graphical or console.

Okay! Whew! I think I've finished the configuration...   :P

Ended up making a very simple JWM theme switcher (in the menu) so that a user can easily change between the light and dark JWM theme.  ;)

Did a few more tweaks on top of it...

Will try to make the alpha .iso tomorrow!   8)   :D

Thank you Thierry!

I hope to have the final configuration touches finished today or tomorrow. Hopefully, I'll try to produce an "alpha" .iso on Saturday.  ;)
