New install with swapfile

Hi again!

Today I installed Archlabs on an old mac-mini and used a swapfile (for the first time). I am having a little trouble with the swapfile. During boot I get “mnt-install-swapfile.swap failed”. I do not understand much here. I have no mount point /mn/install! Could it be a “typo” in the install-script?
I wonder if someone could help me to get rid of this unit and then I can probably manage to create a swapfile manually.
Very thankful for hints and tips!

Hi again!

I used the splendid tool catfish to search for “mnt.install.swapfile.swap” and I found a swapfile in / (root)! I looked in fstab and I thought the line /mnt/install/swap looked wrong and changed it to /swap, activated swap and did a reboot. Problem is gone!? Matter is solved for now!

I looked it up but I took a chance and … solved. (for now)

Good job in there.

Yea the path /mnt/install/swapfile in /etc/fstab should just be /swapfile.

Was an issue in the installer that has since been fixed.

Cheers
