Experiences with Beowulf Beta Desktop Iso

Installation into a Virtual Box VM with UEFI, encrypted with LVM, separate /boot-Partition. Expert install with openrc, let the installer partition the available space (32M). Goal was a minimal system with CLI for setting up my preffered desktop MATE without the garbage you get with the normal selection. 

Host is a ASCII installation with VBox 6.0.14 directly installed with dpkg -i. Its not the latest version but it works for me.

The installation ended with no error message on installing grub, but the VM did not boot. Same scenario as https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=2676. Used the DVD as rescue system and tried all options as posted in the mentioned thread. Finally suceeded with grub-install --bootloader-id=debian followed by an update-grub.

Found the log in /var/log/installer on the VM, here is the important part attached.

Scanning through there 2 topics struck my eyes:
1.) Mar 19 19:16:10 05efi: debug: /target/boot/efi does not have /EFI directory: exiting. I saw this when first running the rescue system, and fixed it manually. A normal grub-install did not help, still ended in the grub shell.
2.) Mar 19 19:15:29 in-target: Paket grub-efi-amd64 ist nicht verfügbar: the installer did not find grub-efi-amd64.

What went wrong there? My mistake or deficits in the installer?

Observation: the installer did not have a clear indication if started in EFI or MBR mode.

Re: Experiences with Beowulf Beta Desktop Iso

Someone mentioned that grub-efi-amd64 is missing. I think that was on the netinstall iso. I'm downloading the dvd iso now to check it.

Did you install with or without a network mirror?

Without. I am used to set the sources.list to the mirrors after the first boot.

Re: Experiences with Beowulf Beta Desktop Iso

You should be able to boot the dvd, go into rescue mode, get a network connection and install grub-efi-amd64. You don't need the -signed version unless you're using secure boot.

All the installation media (including desktop-live) boot with grub on uefi and boot with isolinux on bios. If you can't tell the difference by looking at them, you can test:
Press TAB to edit the boot command in isolinux.
Press e to edit the boot command in grub.
Press ESC to return to the boot menu - this one is the same for both.

If you're already booted into the system, check to see if /sys/firmware/efi exists. If it does, you booted in uefi mode.

Re: Experiences with Beowulf Beta Desktop Iso

A new installation with network mirror works fine.

That means grub-efi-amd64 is missing on the DVD.

Re: Experiences with Beowulf Beta Desktop Iso

Posting this to possibly save someone else trouble-shooting time.

I have a 1 tb spinning HDD with a "long time use" install and updated ASCII (2), and two 250 gb SSDs. My practice on installation is to uninstall completely Mate Screeensaver, Gimp and PulseAudio.  I set Power Manager to set the power button to "shutdown" and did similar to the suspend options, as well as inhibiting the screen sleep/dim mode. It does not hang.  I downloaded Beowulf RC from Ralph's borta server, burned it to a usb stick, and proceeded to install to one of the ssd. I rebooted and I uninstalled the above three programs, and did the power manager settings as above.

Everything seemed to work fine, except that after a few minutes the screen would go dark, and the mouse and keyboard would become non-usable.  I would have to initiate a shutdown by the power button.  The laptop (Lenovo L512) could then be restarted normally. 

A few days later I downloaded the Beowulf beta, and installed it to the same ssd, in the same way as above.  Results were the same as with the RC.  So I reinstalled to the other ssd.  Same results as the first ssd.  I then reinstalled this time choosing the xfce desktop instead of mate.  Same results.  I then downloaded the ASCII 2 iso, and installed choosing mate desktop to an ssd.  Uninstalled the screensaver, gimp, and pulseaudio. Result was no hang. I then apt updated it and then dist-upgraded to Beowulf. Worked fine, with no hang.

So I again installed with the beowulf iso stick to the ssd, this time leaving the screensaver installed, and only removing gimp and pulseaudio.  I did the inhibit screensaver settings, and the above power manager settings.  Result was no hanging.  I am using that beowulf install to  write this.

One thing of note; when the hang would occur, if I fiddled with the mouse, and then shutdown and rebooted, there would be a "new file" icon on the desktop.  That would seem to indicate that the laptop was still "computing" with only the video not working.  I suspect that the screensaver program has something
to do with recovering from a "sleep" state.  Oh yes, I did try disabling the pci bus and the cpu "powering down" after some non-use time in bios.  No joy with that.

(edit to fix formattinh)

Re: Experiences with Beowulf Beta Desktop Iso

I managed to get it running off the 64bit iso.
Installed KDE to a SSD. I also installed it to a spinning hd, stock standard xfce4.

I saw errors at the install of grub attempt and the installs were aborted.
I eventually deleted /boot and the efi partition. and re-partitioned the space for /boot , the install went through without a hitch.
That was when I decided to try that process on the Hdd, and it worked as well.

I setup the iwlwifi after boot, installed some other programs and the ssd system is just about where I was.
I usually install proprietary nVidia graphics driver, and steam games. I might do that later.

Thanks for the opportunity, I like Beowulf.
