Talk:Offline installation

From ArchWiki


Follows my thoughts about the Template:Accuracy at the head of the article:

Quoting Install from existing Linux#Using a chroot environment,

the bootstrap environment is really barebones (no nano, no ping, no cryptsetup, no lvm). Therefore, we need to set up pacman in order to download the rest of the base and, if needed, base-devel.

Which defeats an offline installation. In addition, since we have a sufficient mean, namely archiso, why not exploit the most of it, and avoid more requirements?

Following the process in ArchISO 2019-11-01, I found the following error:

rm /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1.service.d/autologin.conf
rm: cannot remove '/etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1.service.d/autologin.conf': No such file or directory

Seems this file no longer exists...

I did a find and didn't see a file by this name. I don't want to do an edit until someone can verify this line should just be removed, or if the autologin exists somewhere else and should be removed.
