    But I have a new machine being delivered on Wednesday and I think I’m going to run Antergos on it.

    Please, bear in mind that new hardware can produce new headaches… ;)

    But any problem you may face due to your hardware in Antergos will be the same on Arch or Manjaro ;) It will depend on the kernel you use, basically.

    Cheers!

    @karasu said in Need pw to apply updates but did not set one on installing antergos:

    Hi,

    Antergos installation always asks for a password. What I do not remember if it enforces it or not (it should, so I’ll check this one).

    Nope, I was right and Cnchi enforces entering a password or you can’t continue (even if you set autologin). Are you sure you didn’t establish a password and now you don’t remember doing it?

    Please, try with whatever password you use normally :grimacing:

    Cheers!

    Ok, try this:

    1. Boot with the usb iso
    2. Close cnchi
    3. Open a terminal
    4. sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda

    4 will show your partition layout. Post it here so we know how to procede.

    Cheers!

    I think I gave to you a full list of packages that are installed with Cnchi, didn’t I? Did you try to install them all? Then you won’t need to install 300 packages one by one.

    But yes, I understand, if this is too much hassle for you maybe would be better to do a fresh install.

    As @joekamprad says, if you are still willing to use Antergos or another rolling release distribution, you must update your system at least once a week.

    @rrosner5 You have always to use --force with pacman, because it founds that you have files from the packages you want to install already in your harddisk.

    Oh, and always issue a sudo pacman -Syyuu before trying to update packages.

    Hi,

    less /var/log/pacman.log will let you scroll through that file. Press q to quit.

    @joekamprad yes, he had his pacman database corrupted, don’t know why. I suggested moving it so pacman could generate a new one. Saddly, this makes pacman ignore which packages were already installed. He has to reinstall everything again… by hand, so pacman knows which packages are installed.

    Hi,

    To load a module you can use modprobe:
    sudo modprobe radeon

    To check all loaded modules:
    lsmod

    You should check if the amdgpu driver https://forum.antergos.com/topic/6255/amdgpu-driver-talk works for your card.

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    It’s me again.

    But since they need to be made compatible with the Nouveau drivers. So when restoring Chrome for example, I would need to be able to start it with all hardware accellerations disabled to be able to disable them in the chrome settings and flags, otherwise Chrome would very quickly crash the whole UI you the only thing I could basically do is move the mouse and open the program overview in the task bar, but not open anything, not to mention to just do a reboot.

    I don’t follow you in this. That you’re using nouveau, shouldn’t affect your programs.

    For chromium, you can move it’s previous setup:
    mv ~/.config/chromium ~/.config/chromium.old

    (I say move because if anything goes wrong you will be able to restore it).

    It will “delete” your previous settings and restore default settings.

    Then you can try to install it and run it.

    The same goes for other programs.

    Cheers!

    Hi,

    Boot again with the antergos iso, chroot to your system using arch-chroot and then you will be able to change any password you want.

    If you don’t know how to do it please ask ;)

    Cheers!
