Spoke too soon. The workaround above only works for misconfigured openrc and runit ISOs. Calamares won't work under s6, @Dudemanguy is on it and we'll have a fix and update within the next few hours.

I installed from this ISO

artix-plasma-s6-20200125-x86_64.iso

do I still need to manually apply changes mentioned in announcement ?

[s6] The next s6-linux-init requires manual intervention dated 2020-01-19

Nope, that announcement was only for people upgrading. You installed a version after that, so there's no need to worry.

Thanks,

Just wondering how is Artix s6 based ISO different from Obarun?

What I noticed is that on Artix s6 I just had to install and use while on Obarun most of the things I had to do was manually .

I haven't used Obarun myself, so I'm not sure exactly what he does. I know that Obarun wrote 66 and 66-tools which is a sort of frontend wrapper around s6/s6-rc.

In Artix, the s6 implementation is just straight up s6/s6-rc/s6-linux-init with service scripts you can install from our repos. I did my best to script away most of the abstractions and boilerplate from the user so it would be easy to use. The idea is that you should pretty much only ever need to directly deal with s6-rc.
