I took a test drive of Morpheus. Everything looks good and simple. Now I've got it on a USB drive as a rescue disk if something goes wrong with my Antergos KDE build. I will re-review this distro if/when that day comes.
Got same problems to log in but "MorpheusArchDocumentation-converted.pdf" answered all my questions.
Data recovery is maybe not my first aim, but sometimes is very helpful. It's a pity the author writes one should not use it as a "normal" distro one can use on a daily basis. And so doesn't provide an easy means (Calamares?) to install it on hard disk.
I find it is a really simple distribution to work with and not at all that heavy!
A forum where to ask questions is missing ...
I like the combination of Arch and LXQT. Guess (am nor sure) this MorpheusArchLXQT is the first to appear.
This distro works great used it to repair some broken partitions on an old hdd and managed to recover about 15GB of photos i thought would be gone forever. Its good that all the software you'd need is pre-installed so you can recover data even if you dont have a working internet connection the lindiag utility seems useful for a lot of things but the data recovery part of it seems to just use ddrescue i mean it worked but i expected more if this distros focused on data rescue sadly not all the data was recovered but I dont know if the blame lies with morpheusarch or the failing hdd, a great distro to keep on a spare usb key somewhere
Systemd fails to create Users at startup.
Not able to login.
Tried username:root > passwd:arch to no effect.
Tried username:root > passwd: to no effect either.
Re-downloaded .iso file and re-created bootable usb flash drive, (performing a sha1sum integrity check of the .iso) with same results.
Too bad, i was so much looking forward to an LXQT Arch-based recovery distro.
