Re: ArchLabs Linux

Temporarily pull /sda out of the hardware (physically disconnect), install to the external, you're sure then nothing can be written to it.

It should write EFI partition to my external HDD right?

/dev/sda is where my Windows 10 is installed. So I thought before I install, I'd better ask the guru here, because I would not want to risk borking my Windows 10 setup. Peace.

I'm pretty sure that the EFI system partition on /dev/sda should be shared because that's what the Arch installation guide recommends.

However, I have never tried Calamares and I would always mount /boot to the EFI system partition when installing Arch (this is also the recommendation in the official guide) rather than /boot/efi

That may cause either Windows or Debian to fail to boot, depending on how the UEFI firmware decides to handle multiple EFI system partitions.

If the OP @Eon is lucky and has a decent UEFI implementation (highly unlikely in my experience) then your advice might work but one of the main benefits of UEFI is the ease of multi-booting (although Microsoft have tried their best to ruin this with their idiotic, non-standard "bootmgfw.efi" bootloader) and sharing a single EFI system partition and swapping between many operating systems is actually rather simple compared to non-UEFI machines.

EDIT: Eon is not the OP...

Re: ArchLabs Linux

@Eon, or try the ABIF installer instead. It neeeds a little bit more thinking, but big_smile

sudo /abif-master/abif

The "Architect" installer was last updated in April 2016 so I'm not sure if that is a good idea, Arch has changed a lot since then.

Callamares is actively developed and used by Manjaro and Antergos.

Re: ArchLabs Linux

Thank you, but I wouldn't be so arrogant to think that  LOL!  ArchLabs are forever in the debt of the Bunsen boys for being so kind to allow us in the beginning to use their configs and copy the look.  It really meant a lot. 

On that note, ArchLabs 2017.10 is available for those of you interested.  We really refined on the previous release.  This one is even tidier and smoother.

Check it out

Re: ArchLabs Linux

^I was joking around ... I'm sure BL devs are honored the BL became a model to another successful distro.

Actually, I was going to install it permanently on my Asus EEE pc, but the decision about ditching 32bit arch made it not worth (in the long run).

Re: ArchLabs Linux

^ I knew that, hence me adding the "LOL"  smile

We consider ourselves Bl's little brother.  My wish was for BL to be based on Arch as Debian is too outdated for my tastes (in comparision to Arch) but we knew that wouldn't happen so hence ArchLabs!

Re: ArchLabs Linux

Question, does switching to LTS kernel decrease number of updates somehow or did I read that wrong? Or is there a more general (not kernel only) LTS model?

Re: ArchLabs Linux

I'm not sure if you use Arch but from what I understand the updates to the kernel are fewer when using the LTS rather than always updating the latest kernel.

Re: ArchLabs Linux

^ Arch's LTS kernel tracks the upstream kernel.org LTS branch.

The LTS kernel is the only sane choice for Arch (IMO), the vanilla version just breaks too often sad

Re: ArchLabs Linux

What HOAS said. 

Saying that though, I have had very little issue with the latest kernels.  So far.

Re: ArchLabs Linux

I'd use something in between Debian stable & Arch (in number of updates), perhaps I'll try sid.
