I have been trying to install Antergos on a second PC for a week now. (antergos-18.6-x86_64.iso)
Besides the mirror problems, which I have tried everything and nothing worked until it finally just installed as it did on the PC I am on now months ago, and again without doing anything but waiting some time and trying over and over again, and without any hacking around, it just worked all of a sudden.
All happy about finally succeeding, I was met with a big let down on reboot: Grub could not find the hibernation (swap) partition. I looked up the error and found this thread:
I didn’t get far because at the step to change GRUB_LINUX_… I hit a wall at “cd /etc/default/grub”, but because grub is a file, and not a folder, I got the “No such directory” error. So I tried sudo gedit grub, but got “no such command gedit”, (XFCE) and I can’t edit the file without an editor, now can I? (the thread could use some detail). I did although notice something strange: the partitions I created manually were in the order I created them, not in the order they are on the drive: I created a boot partition first, then a 7Gb swap at the end of the drive to get around doing the math, and it ended up sde2 instead of 4.
I reinstalled knowing the mirrors worked, and just let it partition the drives for me with the separate /home option, and again it installed. But then on reboot I got the same error, and got 3 additional errors.
ERROR: device UUID xxx… not found. Skipping fsck
mount:/new_root: can’t find UUID xxx You are now being dropped into emergency shell (new_root? that does not look right)
sh: cant access ttyi job control turned off
I ran blkid, and that actually worked. all of the UUID’s were exactly as they should be accept one oddity: They were all on /dev/sde ( I only had one drive installed, to avoid problems, knowing I could make changes after successful install). I have installed all kinds of Linux distro’s over the years, and /boot and /root were always on /dev/sda!
needless to say even chroot didn’t work this time. (I was hoping to be able to use VM to edit grub)
Sorry, but I have no way to save and furbish you with any usable info from the system as it is.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, as I am on my wit’s end, but please give as detailed info as possible, so I don’t run into another wall, as I am not very familiar with low level operations.
