(3/3) Updating linux initcpios...
==> WARNING: Preset file `/etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux-lqx.preset' is empty or does not contain any presets.


package manager prints the error above in terminal.

i have removed liquorix for now because i'm not sure how to proceed.

please advise.

so today from the repo the liquorix kernels and headers install without the error however they still would not boot the system would hand on loading initial ram disk.

then i followed the advice of someone way smarter than me about linus stuffs and made a linux-lqx.preset file with the following contents

:: Code ::

# mkinitcpio preset file for the 'linux-lqx' package

ALL_config="/etc/mkinitcpio.conf"
ALL_kver="/boot/vmlinuz-linux-lqx"

PRESETS=('default' 'fallback')

#default_config="/etc/mkinitcpio.conf"
default_image="/boot/initramfs-linux-lqx.img"
#default_options=""

#fallback_config="/etc/mkinitcpio.conf"
fallback_image="/boot/initramfs-linux-lqx-fallback.img"
fallback_options="-S autodetect"


and installed that into /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux-lqx.preset

then installed linux-lqx and linux-lqx-headers and ran update-grub afterwards and i nbooted into linux-lqx without issue.

Thanks and have a wonderful day.[/code]

It looks like there's overall something busted with your system installation or Artix. The rule of thumb is if it doesn't break on the core distribution (Arch in this case), then it's either you or your custom distribution.

The preset file is managed by a pacman hook, not by me: wiki.archlinux.org/title/Mkinitcpio#Automated_generation. All my systems are upgrading fine and no one using core Arch is reporting the issue, so I"ll just mark this as resolved.
