My KDE install attempts are failing due to package name change kdebase-dolphin -> dolphin.
Anyhoo, trying work-arounds I found that an attempt to re-run Cnchi results in a failure to create the partition table just after I typed in the host and user specs (for the ump-teenth time today). How annoying.
Looking at the logs, ‘wipefs’ fails with the partition busy.
Using fuser and ps, the offending process is “gpg-agent --homedir /install/etc/ … …”
Simply killing that process and trying cnchi again seemed to get past the partition initialisation.
KDE install still failing on missing packages though. Think I will give up on KDE until it stabilises…
