@wxl I have tested by making a startup disk in every release from Xenial to Eoan. They all work very well for me, no issues.

kc2bez closed T25: Make Calamares work well with smaller screens as Resolved.

I have tested this in a VM and on bare metal. The bare metal machine had 2 displays and the full-screen window appeared only on the main display (expected behavior). The VM resolution was set to 800X600 and everything appeared on the screen and looked normal.

@wxl @tsimonq2 Is fullscreen the way we want to go here or do we want some other set size?
I like fullscreen for 2 reasons.

For the easy win we could set windowExpanding: fullscreen in the branding.desc file to force calamares into full screen mode.

Could someone test the package from -proposed on an EFI system and see if there's still the same results as before?

It looks like we already have ufw installed. I checked the live iso and did a fresh install, it was present on both.

kc2bez updated subscribers of T36: Fix full disk encryption on BIOS systems.

My research has led me to this issue reported in Calamares. Basically there was a change to cryptsetup to default to LUKS2. LUKS2 and GRUB2 don't play well together. Which thing do we patch or do we abandon LUKS for now? @tsimonq2 @wxl what are your thoughts on this? Do you think I am on the right track here so far?

There is but I didn't test that, it said it was unsupported :P I will give it a try though.

This is going to take some more code spelunking. Adding - file # To swap file instead of partition (unsupported right now) didn't get presented in the dropdown.

kc2bez added a comment to T22: Bring those swaps back.

This does look super easy to implement now, there are even options for the size of swap that a user wants to implement. In the partition.conf module we would need to change neverCreateSwap: true to neverCreateSwap: false and then add:

userSwapChoices:
    - none      # Create no swap, use no swap
    - reuse     # Re-use existing swap, but don't create any
    - small     # Up to 4GB
    - suspend # At least main memory size

I tested this in Vbox from a daily iso and it seems to work as advertised with the exception of reuse, I wasn't able to see that as an option but perhaps I was doing something wrong. Any insight on this @tsimonq2?
