With maintainers key you reference the key for official package signing? The key is used for that exclusively.

joe1984 commented on 2018-06-16 17:39

I'm confused. The key in the PKGBUILD doesn't match the maintainers key, as far as I can see.

I don't know if this is a problem specific to me, but when I did today's update, the installation failed due to a pgp key check failure (sorry I've lost the terminal output).

I manually added the key from the PKGBUILD (the details matched @eworm's details) and then it installed with no errors.

This should work with systemd and script based initramfs, no?
What issues do you see with non-systemd-initramfs?

So sad it requires the systemd hook as at this time it still breaks resume hook -- for resuming from hibernation.
Thanks anyways, I still use it on my desktop box :)

Sorry for the late reply.
It works fine if put anywhere after the systemd hook.

eworm commented on 2013-10-08 19:30

Oh, misread your posts... You already have systemd setup for your initramfs.

Should work though. Make sure 'systemd' hook is loaded before 'archlogo'. In general the order does not matter, but systemd specifies some functions the install script needs.

If all goes well lsinitcpio should contain:

roentgen commented on 2013-10-07 19:42

No error or other kind of messages.
I didn't modify any of the files that came with the package.

Email is on the way.

eworm commented on 2013-10-07 19:27

Hmm, curious... Anything special in your archlogo.conf? Do you see any error messages on boot? Something like this:

cat: filename: No such file or directory

Do you have the possibility to upload your initramfs anywhere? Or try to send via email to the address in my profile.

I do have mkinitcpio-archlogo 0.2.0.r6.ge177a5b-1 and I just rebuilt my initramfs to make sure. AFAIK the order of the hooks doesn't matter but I did try both with it at the beginning and at the end.

# lsinitcpio /boot/initramfs-linux.img | grep archlogo

Could you change source() part as
source=('git+') ?

Not big issue but git protocol is not allowed on my university network, I could updated package with this type of source address.

eworm commented on 2013-10-06 21:24

Works for me, just tested for default and systemd setup. Did you install recent version? Should be 0.2.0.r6.ge177a5b-1.
And do not forget to rebuild initramfs.

If it still does not work: Paste the output of:
lsinitcpio /boot/initramfs-linux.img | grep archlogo

roentgen commented on 2013-10-06 19:42

It's not working anymore with systemd initcpio and encrypted root.

Before, with the normal initcpio, it used to appear before the encryption password prompt.

eworm commented on 2013-10-06 18:33

Why did you flag out-of-date? This is a git package, so never can be outdated. ;)

Anyway, I had updated this to work with systemd initramfs which is still very uncommon I think. Updated again to work with both setups. Does this work for anybody?

hav3lock commented on 2013-05-03 13:06

super excited about the new config file! :D

Hi, please update your install hook for the changes in mkinitcpio 0.9.0. If you need examples, you can reference any of the install hooks included with mkinitcpio. There's also documentation included in the manpage now describing the recommended API. Feel free to email me if you have any questions. Thanks!
