Hello, World. I am currently attempting to install Antergos on my Dell XPS 9575 using the
(SHA1=b287e4158d3e1c328222965f0b266963cc1324b7) and am experiencing a plethora of issues. While the system acts like it has installed, the result is an impossible to use pile. I previously ran manjaro and elementaryOS on it, so Linux itself isn’t the issue. Here are the steps I took and the cnchi logs:
I made a liveUSB on a stick via dd from another machine.
I selected the liveUSB in UEFI mode, and booted “Antergos Live System (cd/dvd)” (the usb option fails and falls back to memtest)
I open a terminal and run
sudo gedit /usr/share/cnchi/data/packages.xml, remove the package
xorg-mkfontdiron line 89 and save.
sudo cnchi -p /usr/share/cnchi/data/packages.xml 2> $HOME/Desktop/cnchi-log.txt(attached)
I follow the process, selecting these options:
- English installer language
- OK system check (which btw lags like crazy but that’s neither here nor there)
- Select English (US) location
- Select New York timezone and turn on NTP sync
- Select English (US) keyboard
- Select GNOME desktop
- Select Advanced power management, AUR support, Bluetooth, Firefox, LibreOffice, Printing, SSH, and Wine. Authorizing the AUR
- Do not select a cache partition.
- Let cnchi determine mirrors
- Select “erase disk and install Antergos”, select “encrypt this instillation for increased security” and “Use LVM with this instillation”
- Select “/dev/nvme0n1” instead of /dev/sda (which is the USB drive) to install on, and select grub2 to be put on /dev/nvme0n1 as well.
- I fill out the fields for my account as asked.
- I ok the install and wait for it to happen.
After that, cnchi asks to restart, however when it starts up again I’m directed to my fallback ethernet boot. What’s going on?
Here’s the log. Sorry this isn’t the standard way of sending these things but the forum was giving me trouble and it’s too big for pastebin.
