Much appreciation and many thanks for getting this out and getting us this far. Hoping this somehow helps in problem solving so we can get a working ISO.
This Iso does boot on VBox and hardware here. The X issue in VBox appears to be fixed. Upon booting ‘Live’ there is an odd dialog window asking user to select Window Manager. If one selects openbox (the only choice I could see) it boots to a close to useless desktop. If user can open a terminal (ALT>F2) and type ‘pkexec /usr/bin/calamares’ then a window opens with:
“Calamares Initialization Failed”
"OM Lx could not be installed. Calamares was unable to load all of the configured modules. This is a problem with the way Calamares is being used by the distribution. The following modules could not be loaded:
And it feels like the problem with the desktop is the same. No services or not enough services are present for a working desktop. Suppose I could investigate more if I knew better what to look for. In short it feels like something simple simply got left out on this ISO. Sorta like a typo but in this case is more likely some missing config files? (OK now I’m speculating.)
Post-edit: I am informed by developers that services mentioned in Calamares service modules are not the same thing as system services. So what does this mean. It seems like it means that both Calamares is not configured correctly and desktop is also not configured correctly.
Post-edit: Booting on hardware now tested and confirmed working on 2 whole computers!!!
