• Can not install Antergos on to an USB drive


    Hello,

    like I wrote in the Headline, I have problems with installing Antergos on an USB drive for portable usage.
    I have an 8GB USB drive with the burned live image. It boots with the cnchi installer.
    I make my ticks and configurations and set the drive to my second 64 GB USB drive and hit start.
    But the installer gets stuck at the point “Getting your disk(s) ready for Antergos…”.
    Below is a log with cnchi started as root. But even without root (starting through gnome activity) it get stuck.

    (It is an external link because the full log would be to long for this post.)
    But here is the important part:

  • installing directly on a flash drive will take very long (more then one hour) i do this some days before…
    and it is better to take care about write access handling after install:

    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installing_Arch_Linux_on_a_USB_key

  • @joekamprad I have an really fast usb 3.1 stick with an average of 143 MB/sec. It should not take so long…

  • flash drives are flash drives also with usb3…

  • @clemensw
    That 143 MB/s continuous data rate actually means nothing when installing to a disk. More important is the rate of small files. So the rate of random 4KB writes says much more about the drive speed.
    So, as Joe implied, USB stick drives are slow for this kind of operation.

  • @manuel said in Can not install Antergos on to an USB drive:

    USB stick drives are slow for this kind of operation.

    I totally share, the flash units for installations, the slower the better, in the speed always something is lost or not installed.
