EFI dual boot Windows 8.1 grub doesn't work

@masozow said in EFI dual boot Windows 8.1 grub doesn't work:

cnchi goes nuts when there’s more than one OS installed

Only if you have EFI-Bios or more then one OS installed before…
On Bios System i never have a problem with second OS …
But this does not count for the fututure as we will go to mostly EFI Boot systems…

Beginners’ subforum for general Antergos issues.

Trying to update

This type of issue is rare so you were unlucky to see it so early in your introduction to Linux. All Linux distros with regular updates have the possibility of something that users raise and fix before the devs see it. This is part and parcel of Linux and it’s ever-changing nature so moving to Ubuntu for example will not avoid this but might lower the chance.

The more bleeding edge the distro (such as Arch/Antergos), the earlier in the chain you are for receiving software updates so update errors are more frequent but these in turn create an ability in the user to quickly fix almost anything and continue with little pause.

No distro will need fixing every time - no matter how complex or low-level it is, so why not try Antergos for a few weeks and see how you get on, and if it somehow matches your worst fears, move to a distro with a much slower release cycle - at least this way you will know what you will miss if you move away to another distro.

Problems and questions concerning kernel and hardware support.
Wi-Fi going slow

@juantello said in Wi-Fi going slow:


The rtl8723ae and rtl8723be modules are included in the mainline Linux kernel.

Some users may encounter errors with powersave on this card.
This is shown with occasional disconnects that are not recognized by high level network managers (netctl, NetworkManager).

post link here before you try this:
edit /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723ae.conf

ATTN: Deprecation of ABS tool and rsync endpoint

Due to high maintenance cost of scripts related to the Arch Build System, we have decided to deprecate the abs tool and thus rsync as a way of obtaining PKGBUILDs.

The asp tool, available in [extra], provides similar functionality to abs. asp export pkgname can be used as direct alternative; more information about its usage can be found in the documentation. Additionally Subversion sparse checkouts, as described here, can be used to achieve a similar effect. For fetching all PKGBUILDs, the best way is cloning the svntogit mirrors.

While the extra/abs package has been already dropped, the rsync endpoint (rsync:// will be disabled by the end of the month.

Dual Boot Option In Cnchi

Hi again!

So I just had an idea! (Which I guess is already kind of obvious since I am posting again:grinning:)

Since internet is already needed to install within Cnchi, what if when one got to the “Where to install” option, a link to a page with instructions such as this one was provided so that users could have a built in guide:slight_smile:

That way they wouldn’t have to scour the internet or anything.

It’s just an idea, but it sure seems like an easier work around than anything else I can think of (says the non-coder:grinning:)

Which Music Player is it worth testing?

You all are kidding, aren’t you?!! Off course,

CANTATA (the mpd client).

It’s head and shoulders above all the rest, in fact, sorry folks, all the others are jokes!

Lollypop, a seemingly new player, looks somewhat promising though I haven’t tried it. Babe-qt looks promising too but seems to be in danger of tight KDE integration in the future.

What's the point about the wiki?

You’ve both made good points.

Since the information I can provide is the only information that is missing from the Arch Wiki, I’d rather do it there. I don’t have too many antergos-specific stuff installed anyway. The hardware support is provided by software that is maintained by Arch people, as I understand correctly.

I’m talking for example about the Lenovo laptops that we use at work. They are new models, not mentioned at: So I’d be glad to test Antergos on these and provide input on the wiki. If the Antergos wiki had such a page, I’d be glad to contribute it, but rather not start it from scratch in this case. I’m not a good wiki layouter (or in general) anyway.

I will however contribute new content to the Antergos wiki. I have some ideas already.

Canviar idioma i disposicio de teclat del gnome


Suposo que no només el Gnome, sinó que tindràs tot el sistema en anglès.

Per afegir el català has de:

Editar el fitxer /etc/locale.gen i descomentar (treure el ‘#’) de la línia que diu ca_ES.UTF-8 UTF-8 Executar la comanda sudo locale-gen

Ara tens ja els dos idiomes, però tens l’anglès per defecte. Si vols canviar el sistema a català has d’editar el fitxer /etc/locale.conf per què quedi així:


Per canviar-ho a Gnome (disposició de teclat, llengua, …) pots fer-ho des del gnome-control-center (Fes alt+F2 i escriu gnome-control-center)
