It would also be nice to see the output of...

Code:
# gdisk -l /dev/nvme0n1
and/or

Code:
# fdisk -l /dev/nvme0n1
for verification of the partition types, which is different than the filesystems on those partitions.

e.g.

Code:
# gdisk -l /dev/nvme0n1

Number  Start (sector)    End (sector)  Size       Code  Name
   1            2048          514047   250.0 MiB   EF00
Code:
# fdisk -l /dev/nvme0n1

/dev/nvme0n1p1     2048    514047    512000   250M EFI System
Note the EF00 and EFI System details, which are equivalent representations of an EFI partition type with gdisk/fdisk.

I snipped the output to just show the /dev/nvme0n1p1 partition in each example.

You don't need to use the installer. Nobody is telling you that you have to use the installer. Why hinge the usability of Slackware based on the installer (which you use for 30ish minutes and most of that is waiting for the packages to install)?

As we went over in your previous thread, if you follow the Slackware-HOWTO and simply answer all the prompts on the installer (most you can stick to the default), you're greeted with a Slackware login and a simple startx will get you to your desktop (which is all covered in the Slackware-HOWTO).

The Slackware installer sets up your system to be bootable on completion of the installer. As has been covered a great many times, Pat does not determine how you're going to use your system and uses sane defaults. It is up to you to configure the system as you see fit. You don't need NTP to be able to boot Slackware. You don't need NTP to be able to run a desktop. You don't need NTP to be able to use Slackware.

Slackware has *NEVER* been out there trying to meet the needs of everyone and I don't think it intends to meet ANYONE's needs out of the box. It is going to require some work and effort to get it the way you want. If it can eventually meet your needs and you like it, great, if it doesn't or you dislike it, move on. But if you move on, actually move on and don't keep coming back complaining about things that are unlikely to change.

EDIT: These posts have nothing to do with the topic, so I'm going to report them to see if a mod will spin them off to their own thread. No reason to sideshift this post when there's still work to be done.

Why are you wasting your time Bass?

Ignore them and they'll go away.

I have a problem...

But I did report the initial post on this thread to spin it into its own thread and also suggested the mods look into whether this was a duplicate account of I.G.O.R and ialexand.

2. Chroot into /mnt (chroot /mnt)
2. Edit /etc/fstab and replace /dev/sda1 with /dev/nvme0n1pX
3. Umount /boot/efi
4. Mount NVME EFI partition in /boot/efi
5. Run eliloconfing
I'm using all thinkpads. Current issue is on x13 but it existed on T480 as well
