  1. # General Idea
  2.  
  3. I wanted to install Parabola OpenRC on a USB Flash drive
  4. Following https://wiki.parabola.nu/Beginners%27_Guide
  5.  
  6. /dev/sdb is my bootable live usb
  7. /dev/sdc is my install device
  8.  
  9. # 3.1
  10.  
  11. Downloaded the openrc dual cli iso from Parabola downloads page. SHA256SUMS matched.
  12.  
  13. # 3.3
  14.  
  15. # dd bs=4M if=parabola-openrc-2020.01.18-dual.iso of=/dev/sdb && sync
  16.  
  17. It said:
  18. ```
  19. 219+1 records in
  20. 219+1 records out
  21. 919601152 bytes (920 MB, 877 MiB) copied, 425.305 s, 2.2 MB/s
  22. ```
  23.  
  24. Rebooted and booted into the x86_64 live usb.
  25.  
  26. # 4
  27.  
  28. I was fine with US keyboard layout so didn't bother to change.
  29.  
  30. # 5
  31.  
  32. ```
  33. # ping -c 3 www.gnu.org
  34. ```
  35.  
  36. I was in ethernet so returned pings as expected. Skipped the wireless (5.1) part.
  37.  
  38. # 6.1
  39. Ran `lsblk` and it showed my device on `/dev/sdc`
  40.  
  41. # 6.4
  42.  
  43. ```
  44. parted /dev/sdc
  45.  
  46. (parted) mklabel msdos
  47. ```
  48.  
  49. # 6.5
  50.  
  51. ```
  52. (parted) mkpart primary ext2 0% 100%
  53. (parted) print
  54. ```
  55.  
  56. shows 1 as a partition number, so:
  57.  
  58. ```
  59. (parted) set 1 boot on
  60. (parted) quit
  61. ```
  62.  
  63. `cfdisk /dev/sdc` showed one single drive with boot flag correctly set.
  64.  
  65. ```
  66. # mkfs.ext2 -L "parabola" /dev/sdc1
  67. ```
  68.  
  69. # 6.7
  70. No swap, so skipped
  71.  
  72. # 6.8
  73. mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt
  74.  
  75. # 7
  76. Edited `/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist` to get my closest mirror to the top.
  77.  
  78. # 8
  79.  
  80. I have checked `/etc/pacman.conf` and nonsystemd section is uncommented and top of other repositories.
  81.  
  82. Ran:
  83. ```
  84. # pacstrap -i /mnt base base-devel elogind
  85. ```
  86.  
  87. Selected all the default options and it fails saying:
  88.  
  89. ```
  90. ...
  91. looking for conflicting packages...
  92. error: unresolvable package conflicts detected
  93. error: failed to prepare transaction (conflicting dependencies)
  94. :: openrc and systemd are in conflict
  95. ==> ERROR: Failed to install packages to new root
  96. ```
  97.  
  98. Changed `base` to `base-openrc`:
  99. ```
  100. # pacstrap -i /mnt base-openrc base-devel elogind
  101. ```
  102.  
  103. Same error message.
