Customised (encrypted) eMMC installation using Anarsoul's ArchLinux
A couple of things:
  • When creating the second partition, you shouldn't accept the defaults as it tries to use the first unused sector which is the 2048 one. Instead, you should use the last used sector+1
Command (m for help): n
Partition type
  p   primary (1 primary, 0 extended, 3 free)
  e   extended (container for logical partitions)
Select (default p): p
Partition number (2-4, default 2):
First sector (2048-30535679, default 2048):
  • There is a typo in 'pgcreate' (it should be 'pvcreate' instead)
  • genfstab instead gen-fstab
  • 'resume=/dev...' instead 'resume/dev'
  • It would be nice to have a full /boot/boot.txt example such as:
part uuid ${devtype} ${devnum}:${distro_bootpart} uuid
setenv bootargs console=${console} console=tty0 cryptdevice=851f5a25-a354-4f0d-bb9c-3556e083c1ab:archcrypt root=/dev/a
rchlvm/root resume=/dev/archlvm/swap rw rootwait quiet
setenv kernel_addr_z 0x44080000

if load ${devtype} ${devnum}:${distro_bootpart} ${kernel_addr_z} /Image.gz; then
 unzip ${kernel_addr_z} ${kernel_addr_r}
 if load ${devtype} ${devnum}:${distro_bootpart} ${fdt_addr_r} /dtbs/${fdtfile}; then
   if load ${devtype} ${devnum}:${distro_bootpart} ${ramdisk_addr_r} /initramfs-linux.img; then
     booti ${kernel_addr_r} ${ramdisk_addr_r}:${filesize} ${fdt_addr_r};
     booti ${kernel_addr_r} - ${fdt_addr_r};
  • The /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/modesetting.conf  and /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders.cache cannot be copied as there is no x/gdk stuff installed
