Hi, thanks for all of your feedback and testing! Help and PRs are always appreciated of course.
the https://repo.getcryst.al/ seems too slow to download things and sometimes hangs the installation (this cause other problems), I don't know if it is only with me (I am in Portugal). Maybe I can help here creating some mirrors elsewhere;
We're actually working on getting package mirrors that are much faster worldwide 😅
When the installation hangs and fail since it is not receiving x bytes in 10 seconds (almost always when trying to download grub), the jade GUI goes to last step and says that it is finished but is is not completed yet, also no errors are presented (need to check jade log in home folder to see errors);
Yep, this is currently an issue with Error parsing in Jade that doesn't get through to the GUI. This is planned to be resolved once we replace the
jade CLI backend with a new backend we are working on called
If you try to open the jade GUI again, it does not let you go trough installation process again so you need to restart and try again;
This is due to a
jade crash not cleanly unmounting, sadly since we don't have much in the way of error handling on that front right now, but it's something we're still working on!
since the process was always hanging, I leave aside the installation with jade GUI and use the jade commands from jade README (the backend) but the read me instructions seems outdated for "install base packages" that needs one argument kernel and "configure users" that needs encryption in the password;
This is also because we're slowly switching over to using a new backend 🙂
the last time it give me an error on boot because of an UUID but as stated in other forum thread, it was just open fstab and update the UUID of the boot.
We've actually had a few reports of this already, and while we're not sure what could be causing it, wer'e actively looking into it!
Again, thanks for all the feedback and interest in the project! If you'd like to see what we're working on at any given time, I'd suggest you join our Discord and/or Matrix (they're linked on our site!)
