Manjaro XFCE x86_64
OS: Arch Linux Hypervisor: QEMU KVM Architecture: x64 Machine Type: qc35 EFI Firmware Code: /usr/share/edk2-ovmf/x64/OVMF_CODE.fd EFI Firmware Vars: /usr/share/edk2-ovmf/x64/OVMF_VARS.fd
See GitHub - safenetwork-community/bastillebox-installer at arch for the box I’m trying to build.
I’m trying to build a vagrant box with Arch Linux OS installed and some app that needs to use partitions, so I can’t use docker for this.
I also like using EFI for this, although not really necessary, I’m a perfectionist when it comes to this project of mine.
The last time I worked on this, I took compromises and support dropped for one piece of software making the box permanently outdated.
So I want to do it right this time around and want nothing but the best of everything that I perceive as such.
The problem is with EFI.
After building the box with
packer build I can’t run the box without receiving an error.
Starting install... ERROR Impossible to rename file '(null).new' to '(null)': Bad address Domain installation does not appear to have been successful. If it was, you can restart your domain by running: virsh --connect qemu:///system start testvm1 otherwise, please restart your installation.
This happens when running the command below:
sudo virt-install \ --name bastille-installer \ --vcpu 2 \ --memory 1024 \ --osinfo archlinux \ --disk /var/lib/libvirt/images/bastille-installer_qemu_archlinux-2023-05.qcow2 \ --import \ --boot loader=/usr/share/edk2-ovmf/x64/OVMF_CODE.fd,loader.readonly=yes,loader.type=pflash,nvram.template=/usr/share/edk2-ovmf/x64/OVMF_VARS.fd,loader_secure=no
I’m at a loss as to why, what or where a ‘(null).new’
is being renamed to ‘(null)’.
Can anyone here help me out with this issue?
