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.

Caprice32 build?
B

Has anyone managed to install Caprice32 from the AUR.

I keep getting issues regarding pkg-config and freetype-config being missing.

If you install pkg-config it just reinstalls pkgconf when you try and run the AUR package.

Looking at the Arch repository info some say to change the CFLAGS and the LDFLAGS but where do you do that?

I assume the Makefile but I would not know where about to place it.

Any help appreciated…

I tried it on an old Intel/Nvidia laptop that has a quite old discretenvidia card (330m).

So I’ll keep using the Intel card on it…

To me is happening the same, but only when I enter with that shown login. If I stop the webpage before the login redirection in this one I can login, but I have to be fast to stop the redirection.

Why Antergos instead of Arch || Manjaro

such thing Manjaro known good is to hype things good up, bad or good does not mather… at the end is users should always decide, antergos is basicly arch… Manjaro is arch-based but does not make arch directly… At some development stage Manjaro it getting more off Arch, because near future pamac would be there nr 1 packagemanager. so if you want pacman you have to install it, and then come the fun with it. Pamac get more development but the splitted pacman get less developed because they patched it to use with manjaro-system, in time is it kinda waste… the difference get bigger… Always depends what going on the path. Nobody can tell. What for sure is if Pamac get out of sort stage that have standard options, also the cli counterpart. Pacman get out the standard installations… Minor would be wiki spread is kinda minimal if on some issues you have to rely more on the forum.

Nieznany powód padnięcia systemu.

Ja też mam problemy z systemem, jakiś haker włamuje mi się ciągle do sieci, rozsyła mojej rodzinie fałszywe linki javascript, aby inwigilować naszą sieć. Wszędzie się loguje za mną tam gdzie ja, używając umyślnie mojego imienia, moich nicków z innych stron, aby tak mi dokuczać i uprawia w ten sposób stalking. W ogóle nie boi się policji. Jest za jakimś proxy lub vpn i czuje się bezkarny, spędziłem miesiące aby go dopaść na razie wiem tyle, że jego prawdziwy nick to LordSpamer, imię to Jacek lub Tomek, szlaja się po wykop i interi, czateri. Lubi nadużywać wykrzykników w swoim pisaniu…!!. , chyba jest z okolic Wrocławia lub Krakowa. Na co dzień prawdopodobnie zajmuje się spamowaniem różnych forum i w ten sposób zarabia. Także może i tobie on popsuł system.
