Discrepancy Booting 15.1-a1 Installed v Live

The system is initially booted from 15.1a ISO burned to CD, which is used to conduct a conventional hard disk installation. At the live boot loader screen:
  • F7 is left at default (GUI video driver)
  • F8 is used to select a resolution of 1024x768 (console resolution)


When booting live from CD
No bootloader error is reported
The console resolution is honoured as expected, i.e. /proc/cmdline includes vga=791 (which equates to 1024x768x16)
The GUI is successfully presented via the correct video driver at an appropriate resolution
Code:
inxi -c0 -G
Graphics:  Card: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 630/730 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter
           Display Server: X.Org 1.16.4 driver: N/A Resolution: [email protected]
           GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.5, 128 bits) GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 10.3.2



In the above state a conventional hard disk installation is conducted. No errors are reported.



When booting the installation from hard disk
A bootloader error message is obtained
Code:
Loading Linux 4.2.1-antix.2-486-smp ...
vga=791 is deprecated, Use gfxpayload=1024x768x16, 1024x768 before linux command instead.
Loading initial ramdisk ...
[...]


The console resolution is honoured as expected, i.e. /proc/cmdline includes vga=791 (which equates to 1024x768x16)
The GUI is successfully presented via the correct video driver at an appropriate resolution
Code:
inxi -c0 -G

           GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 3.5, 128 bits) GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 10.3.2


Abstract from /boot/grub/grub.cfg used during the boot process
Code:
[...]
echo   'Loading Linux 4.2.1-antix.2-486-smp ...'
linux   /boot/vmlinuz-4.2.1-antix.2-486-smp root=blah ro  vga=791 quiet nosysv=LX
echo   'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
initrd   /boot/initrd.img-4.2.1-antix.2-486-smp



Summary
When a console resolution is maually selected in the live bootloader screen it is carried across to the hard disk installation. The format of the parameter carried across (vga=xxx) is deprecated by GRUB. When the antiX default bootloader for hard disk installations (GRUB) is used to boot the system, an error message is obtained. This behaviour differs from booting in live mode, in which an error message is not produced.


Suggestion
The default bootloaders used by antiX should be equitable in use, rather than favouring one.

In cases where:
  • The user has manually selected a console resolution other than the default in the live bootloader screen
  • Then goes on to carry out an installation to hard disk to be booted via GRUB
antiX should carry over the required parameter and apply it in a form that is not deprecated by GRUB.

Note: Did not test whether accepting the F8 default console resolution 800x600 (vga=788 equivalent to 800x600x16) in the live bootloader screen produces a similar error message. It seems highly likely that all parameters carried across in a deprecated form will produce an error message,

debian wiki describes howto fix manually. An update-grub wrapper script might be preferable to (just) scripting this into the installer.
Quote:
https://wiki.debian.org/GrubTransition

In Grub2 the vga= parameter is deprecated.
To set a screen resolution for your console, do the following:

edit /etc/default/grub uncomment the GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480 and change the resolution to something you can use e.g. 1024x768

Add the line
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep
to the file to have the same resolution at the Linux console.

run update-grub

would be missed.

If such a script is not integrated into the shipped installation process, the hard disk installation will probably require booting at least twice to achieve the desired outcome. The result being, parity between the default antiX bootloaders is not obtained.

@Anti. Take a look see over here about news on what is happening when 2 of us are trying to install the 64bit version of 15.1.

antix-15-1-64-bit-installer-doesn-t-mount-hdd-t6088.html

Just finished the 32 bit install on internal hard drive on this Dell T3400 shop computer . Live session ran OK. On install I had to change wicd preferences to wlan0 after checking with ifconfig -a. Here is the required inxi output for feedback

Next I will try later on the MX-15 RC1 on another partition on here. See how dual boot goes.
Still waiting for my download to complete on that one.

Live usb ran ok for me Shay in 64bit iso.

It is when you run the installer and then reboot. All hell breaks loose. At least for a couple of us so far.

Looks like you make 3 of us now. As the daughter kept saying in "Oh Brother where art thou"

"He's Bonifide".

If inbuilt support for the orion driver existed, your kernel config would contain a line specifically mentioning "orion", like
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD_ORION=y
or
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD_ORION=m

cat /proc/config.gz | grep -i ORION

Outpup is empty.

According to my tests on my installed 64 bit system upgraded to AntiX testing + Debian testing, the above boot error (hdd not found / root fs not present) comes with kernels >= 4.0. I'm writing this post using 3.19.1-antix.2-amd64-smp kernel, wich works fine. I get the same error with the 64 bit live iso, but not with the 32 bit version.

Thanks for all the feedback.

It seems the 64 bit kernel used in this alpha is no good. I'll go back to using the original that shipped with antiX-15 and (at some point) release an iso with the 'legacy' 3.7.10 kernel.

Just done a long overdue antiX "real install", using antiX-15.1-a1-V_x64-base.iso. The live system booted and ran fine but the installation did not, with errors as earlier described.

I first got it to boot using a stock jessie kernel, installed from a chroot. The 4x (antiX) kernel does boot if udev/jessie (systemd-udev) is installed but I want to use eudev.

The problem seems to be in eudev's /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/init-top/udev at line 14. This seems only to apply with post-Jessie kernels, from when I don't know. The script tries to write to /sys/kernel which is not possible, then udev pukes before processing /dev/disk/ (therefore, rootfs is not found)

Now got 4x working nicely here. The solution was:

Code:
-echo > /sys/kernel/uevent_helper
+if [ -w /sys/kernel/uevent_helper ]; then
+    echo > /sys/kernel/uevent_helper
+fi


then regenerate initrd. Alternatively, unpack the initrd, edit scripts/init-top/udev then repack and use it.

Here are some references which helped debug this:

http://aptosid.com/index.php?name=PNphp ... pic&t=2819
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... ug=+752742

This eudev version will need updating to use on newer kernels. The initramfs scripts used for the deb package were lifted from (probably an older version of) systemd-udev so the eudev source itself is not responsible.

BTW thanks antiX team for this system, I like it.
