No I am talking about ext4 only partitions. It did it on VBox and it did the
same on hard install. I can't believe it doesn't have ext2,3,4 as it wouldn't
be able to format and create partitions.

The reason that I did notice this was that I used setup-gparted-desktop
so I can get an easy openbox installation and gparted auto-started on it
in a non openbox kind of way ~/.config/openbox/autostart (blank)

I didn't know this little detail, that is good to know. So any musl based
system is effectively blocking systemd from being installed! Hmmm...!!
