Arch linux template installation error 4.1

I’m trying to install the arch template and I’m having some issues. I’m currently following this guide and I’ve restarted it once and rerun the same step a couple of times to no avail.

I’m getting stuck on STEP 5 where I run make vmm-xen-vm
and I’m getting

tee: /home/user/qubes-builder/chroot-vm-archlinux/etc/locale.gen: No such file or directory
make[2] *** [/home/user/qubes-builder/qubes-src/builder-archlinux/Makefile.archlinux:101: dist-build-dep] Error 1

ls chroot-vm-archlinux/ yields home tmp var but it is missing etc

I obviously have problems running make qubes-vm as well.

What’s the next step in debugging this?

You should search in the complete log file, and find when you see a first trace about etc/ in your chroot environment or chroot creation. Then, try to understand what happened.



I’ve tried to redo this and I end up with the same problem. The logs are mostly empty but I’ve created a github issue for it.
