Topic: Suggestion: Beginner's Guide with Encrypted Installation

I would like to suggest that both the Beginner's Guide and Encrypted Installation be merged. This would be in-line with Hyperbola's commitment to privacy. There would be some expected concerns most likely from new users coming from Debian-based distros but this would ensure and show to the readers that the project values their data privacy and security

I think actually that they should have this one merged with the  regular install actually:

But with some differences, otherwise things go wrong.

This is one of the differences after this command is used:

nano /etc/mkinitcpio.conf

Change the value of the uncommented MODULES line to i915.

    This forces the driver to load earlier, so that the console font you selected earlier isn’t wiped out after getting to login.

Also needs to be done for this guide,

However, I think the beginner guide should also make a suggestion that, "If you want encryption or are an intermediate user, use this guide:

And make the earlier link aka:  https://forums.hyperbola.info/viewtopic.php?id=164

be how this link looks with my little modification anyways:

https://wiki.hyperbola.info/doku.php?id … stallation

aka this:

nano /etc/mkinitcpio.conf

Change the value of the uncommented MODULES line to i915.

    This forces the driver to load earlier, so that the console font you selected earlier isn’t wiped out after getting to login.

If this seems confusing, trust me its not as confusing as you may think. smile
