Distro looks cool and I decided to move up from Antergos and install this badass. Naturally I’ve come across some problems. And then, to be completely clear, I am a layman.
The installer was acting weird when I wanted luks so I encrypted my device manually per Archwiki instructions and I made the filesystem btrfs just to feel cool. I don’t know if btrfs is causing problems or something else.
I then went with a simple install : boot at 100mb efi partition, no format just mount; root at /dev/mapper/crypt no format just mount; no swap.
I come almost to the end (84%) and I get an error right after “Running mkinitcpio” :
/lib/modules/4.16.9-1-ARCH is not a valid kernel module
I have installed latest archlabs 18.5 to a usb stick
I had the same problem. I don’t know what caused it or even how to fix it but this is what I did.
I ran the installer as normal, partitioned files as /boot SWAP / and /home like normal.
formatted everything to ext4 attempted to install then received the error.
Next I just ran the installer again without reformatting and it worked.
