First, minimal test ISO is uploaded for the June stable ISO release. Plan is to release in a week to ten days
Mainly lots of updates since the April ISO, including the usually troublesome Systemd updates (for ISO's anyway). Seems this time no adjustments needed for Systemd 248.
Lots of works has again been done to move more Calamares modules to QML. The Locale module is now in QML for both online (as has been a while) and offline installs:
Packagechooser in all new QML:
As always, early test ISOs are minimal, very few apps, just a web-browser, file manager, text editor, GUI package manager. The non-free Nvidia drivers are included since they are a big part of what needs testing.
Plan is to have Frameworks 5.83.0, KDE Applications 21.04.2, Plasma 5.22.x and Linux 5.12.xx on the final ISO.
The ISO is using packages from the build repo, but that repo is not enabled, so if you decide to install, make sure to add the build repo to your pacman.conf.
Debug packages for Calamares are part of all ISOs, run Calamares with gdb if you encounter errors.
provide the installation log, if you encounter any issue at all
You can start Calamares from the Welcome app, or run it with:
sudo calamares -d
The install log will be created in the home directory of the Live user, see
~/installation.log. It is available after the install in the target system in
If run from cli, make sure to pastebin the full output, since no installation.log will be copied then, though that log is more complete.
On this ISO you will find:
KDE Applications 21.04.2
Octopi 0.11.0 with sysinfo & cachecleaner tool
