Antergos in other languages
If English isn't your first language or you just prefer communicating in another language this area is for you!
Hi , I have a Apex A800 for few years and it’s working fine on my other pc with Ubuntu / Windows.
I just finish my new PC with a new AMD Ryzen 2700 ASrock X470 and Antergos as OS (BTRFS thx to Atlas for your explanation) all working fine only the Keyboard backlight is not working , I-m able to have illuminated only the logo on the right side.
Any idea or suggestion is welcomed.
Yes, it’s only a check to rule out if Netflix has a problem with the chromium-widevine version from the repo.
@Bryanpwo to use chrome is a good idea? And others settings i can do for better results?
*@joekamprad said in Why Keep Reinventing the Wheel?:
@lhb1142 ::: start watching it from both sides, userside and developers side.
What is your thinking about the points from my answear you do not commenting?
involving… yes… but lota problems are not directly caused by cnchi itself, and are more related to the nature of fast changing stuff on a rolling release.
From the point of view at development and mainaining side the view is different, as they must think about the code you are using as “gui”.
I am also not that smart to really get into development, but i do my best to help at the forum. I also do not have the money to donate regularly, so i decide to put my human power to pay back what i got from Antergos.
On Linux and projects offered free to use, we need a culture of respect and donation, as nothing is without a bill in the today world.*
Antergos is build around Chnci, it is before Calamares. Personal, its not a re-invent a wheel. Because it didnt copied or reinvented from something…
Manjaro and Cinnarch/antergos started both from Cli installer, While Antergos developed there own installer, Manjaro forked an installer from LMDE.
Since that installer not supporting uefi, they decide to Fork the chnci installer and call it Thus…while chnci is a network installer thus is a offline installer… but later on some idea landen by an developer that started calamares also worked with manjaro dev… that installer rappidly growth popular…
But antergos stil on there own Chnci… Personal its Antergos pride, is not exactly re-invention… while manjaro have made some steps on different installers Antergos keeped there own… how things installed can be pretty subjective… personal had no issues with it, my only issue is the Webkit greeter, mostly i reinstall with something else… thats further my thing… =-)
i see no reason to switch over to calamares…Personal what you create you should use with pride…*
I am responding to both individuals. I completely understand your points of view but I have to say the following:
I CANNOT install Antergos onto my Alienware AW17R3-7092SLV 17.3" FHD Laptop (6th Generation Intel Core i7, 16 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD) NVIDIA GeForce GTX980M computer (even after six tries) but I CAN (and did) install Manjaro onto it.
I even had trouble installing Antergos onto three other computers though, in the end, I finally got the OS installed.
In my opinion, just as an ordinary computer user, this situation is not good.
It is apparent to me that the installation problem is solely with Cnchi. I’m afraid that nothing anyone can say can change my opinion of that, at least at the present time.
Others have had similar problems. This bodes poorly for Antergos. If you can’t install it, you can’t use it!
I do like Antergos better than Manjaro but for now I am “stuck” with Manjaro on that Alienware computer (though “stuck” is not a good term; actually Manjaro is not a bad OS - it’s just that I like Antergos more).
I would like to see Cnchi abandoned in favor of Calamares or, if that is not possible, then Cnchi MUST be fixed so that ordinary people can install Antergos easily and reliably.
Try it with Firefox or Vivaldi, the Chromium-widevine version in the repo is slightly behind i.c.w. the widevine versions those two browsers use.
