It took me almost 2 days but I managed to get a diskless arch (nfsroot with PXE) working
the archwiki howto seems to be non-functional so I switched to dracut from mkinitcpio; the latter is a nightmare to debug
once I figured it out, it is rather straightforward but it is very confusing at first.
I can write a short summary about it if someone's interested.
@uint8_t Oh yes, please.
@uint8_t working on what kind of device? I've wanted to do this on my SoC's, but it's apparently not supported…
@mvp once I spent like 3 days on getting this working on a pi 3, then I gave it up
now it is just an intel nuc (amd64) which makes it a lot easier to set up and test, thanks to being the same architecture as our servers (so I can chroot easily into it)
and I was testing PXE boot in a VM because I found out that the real hardware got no RAM and we're waiting for it to arrive
