trouble with sli

Post by mimosa » 4. Apr 2020, 06:25

I've been experimenting with sli, and can't get it to install. I'm attempting to install to a USB memory stick (actual install, not copy) like a user who posted recently. I formatted the stick and created a fat partition I'm hoping will be used for EFI, and the rest ext4 which the installer sees and offers as an installation target.

EDIT On reflection, I suspect the Live installer isn't meant to be able to do that! <edit/>

That user posted to ask about how to make such an installation boot, and I'm trying to reproduce his situation, so I don't want to create a "copy", but an actual installation.

I tried selecting first grub, and then elilo, then unticking both. Here is the output when I call sli from a terminal:

Code: Select all

one[~]$ sudo sli
