[13:23:32] <oaken-source> I'm trying to install archlinux32 on a system with 128MiB of ram available. I've set iommu=off and copytoram=n on the grub command line, but I'm still getting write errors when unpacking the initramfs
[13:23:49] <oaken-source> memtest didn't find any issues

[17:22:01] <girls> oaken-source: abaumann had to do some tricks for i486, too, to get it booted on really old hardware - but I don't know the details
[17:22:20] <girls> I believe, in the end, he created an iso with a different boot loader and everything
[18:35:33] -!- abaumann has joined #archlinux32
[18:35:33] <buildmaster> Hi abaumann!
[18:35:33] <buildmaster> !rq abaumann
[18:35:34] <phrik> buildmaster: <abaumann> another day.. another shim (package)
[18:39:13] <abaumann> oaken-source:
[18:39:15] <abaumann> 64MB KASLR error message, then hangs
[18:39:15] <abaumann> 128MB failed to execute /init
[18:39:15] <abaumann> 256MB Mounting archiso ARCH_201804, then hangs
[18:39:15] <abaumann> 272MB Initramfs unpacking failed: write error
[18:39:18] <abaumann> 288MB boots
[18:39:48] <abaumann> I think the ISO is out of question with a RAMdisk
[18:41:29] <abaumann> I used pacstrap and installed it from a machine with enough RAM, built a monolitic kernel and booted directly without the ramdisk
[18:41:36] <abaumann> you may also try to downsize the ramdisk.
[18:42:39] <abaumann> At least 256MB was enough then on the Alix.
[18:43:04] <abaumann> Another idea is to load a kernel via PXE and then load everything from a NBD/NFS drive (sort of a remastered ISO).
[18:43:27] <abaumann> What's for sure: proper i486 support for old machines has to use another boot process and ISO..
[18:44:01] <abaumann> but currently I'm even too stupid to run mkarchiso (I get depreceted messages or errors, no matter which documentation I'm following).
[18:45:25] <abaumann> write errors are because the kernel cannot unpack the ramdisk to RAM (too few RAM), there is nothing wrong with your memory, I would say. :-)
[18:56:44] <abaumann> ah. yes that works, at least in a libvirt:
[18:56:46] <abaumann> NBD:
[18:56:47] <abaumann> [arch486install] exportname = /data/nbd/arch486install.img copyonwrite = true
[18:57:05] <abaumann> and the arch486install.img is basically an unpacked ISO (the old i486 ISO)
[18:57:44] <abaumann> and a PXE/TFTP setup with initrd initramfs-linux.img
[18:57:44] <abaumann> #initrd archiso.img
[18:57:44] <abaumann> linux vmlinuz-linux
[18:57:44] <abaumann> append debug rw nomodeset ip=:::::eth0:dhcp nbd_host= nbd_name=arch486install root=/dev/nbd0 console=tty0 nomodeset ne.io=0x320 ne.irq=5 console=ttyS0,115200n8
[18:57:55] <abaumann> yes, I know, I should write documentation :-
[18:57:56] <abaumann> )
[18:58:16] <abaumann> pacman needs memory, so the first step is always to create a swap and activate it
[18:59:20] <abaumann> yeah and here the kernel is a default kernel, but the ramdisk is built specifically to contain only the modules needed for that hardware (libvirt in this case)
[19:00:02] <abaumann> it's easier to find some additional memory..
[19:00:04] <abaumann> must leave
