• ATTN: Additional action required to install Antergos


    Until the ISO can be updated, follow these steps to install Antergos.

    1. Exit the installer when it initially appears.

    2. Press [b:ffqb5yxp]Alt+F2[/b:ffqb5yxp], input “[b:ffqb5yxp]cnchi-dev[/b:ffqb5yxp]”, and then press [b:ffqb5yxp]Enter[/b:ffqb5yxp].

    3. Wait 2-5 minutes while the installer is updated. (Could take longer on slower connections)

    4. The installer will restart automatically, follow the prompts to install.

    Best Regards,

  • I had to install git first before testing.sh would run correctly.

  • Was this with the most recent ISO or an older one?

  • I think you should provide a link to this forum page on the download[/url:15keiadm] page untill the next release rolls out.

  • Hi, there. New here. First post =J

    So i downloaded the 32-bit iso from homepage, created a live usb, booted up, tried to install Antergos, failed because of the ‘‘cnchi can’t continue’’ problem. Found workaround form this topic, but i can only get to step 3. I see the notification (gnome3) at the bottom that cnchi is updating, but after that - nothing.

    So i ran it from terminal and i get some python ImportError:

    [[email protected] ~]$ cnchi-dev

    Any suggestions?

  • Hi,

    Before running cnchi-dev command, run this:[command:hiiwh583]sudo pacman -S python-requests[/command:hiiwh583]Let me know if that works!

  • For some reason I cannot download this python package or even update repos, some issue with not finding a database. Here’s my log:

      
    [[email protected] ~]$ sudo pacman -S python-requests  
    warning: database file for 'core' does not exist  
    warning: database file for 'extra' does not exist  
    warning: database file for 'community' does not exist  
    warning: database file for 'antergos' does not exist  
    error: target not found: python-requests  
    
    

    After that i tried sudo pacman -Syu (–debug).
    Short:

  • @m3l:

    It seems you don’t have db files ¿?

    Please, try running sudo pacman -Syyuu

  • Hi,

    From your log:

    debug: opened tempfile for download: /var/lib/pacman/sync/core.db.sig.part (wb)
    debug: curl returned error 22 from transfer
    debug: failed retrieving file ‘core.db.sig’ from archlinux.polymorf.fr : The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
    debug: “/var/lib/pacman/sync/core.db.sig” is not readable: No such file or directory
    debug: sig path /var/lib/pacman/sync/core.db.sig could not be opened
    debug: missing optional signature

    You could try to update your mirrorlist:
    [url:vsmd39dc]https://www.archlinux.org/mirrorlist/?country=all&protocol=http&ip_version=4[/url:vsmd39dc]
    save it to /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
    remember to uncomment at least one of the mirrors (remove # from the start)

    If it still doesn’t work, please post here your /etc/pacman.conf

  • Hi,

    Try it once more but don’t upgrade any packages. Use this command instead:[command:wxqe3ae4]sudo pacman -Syy python-requests[/command:wxqe3ae4]

    @karasu:
    Updated mirrorlist, tried different mirrors, still same error.

    Previous command with debug enabled and pacman.conf posted to pastebin.

  • Hi,

    I updated Cnchi so it doesn’t fail when it does not find the requests module. Please, reboot and start with the live iso, then use the cnchi-dev command to update Cnchi and start installing.

    Another solution would be to install python-requests BEFORE running cnchi for the very first time.

    Cheers!

  • Actually, i just realized myself that i could download python-requests and install it manually.
    So that’s what i did and it worked! Got cnchi-dev working and I’m installing Antergos right now.

    What i did:

      
    wget http://ftp.eenet.ee/pub/archlinux/community/os/i686/python-requests-2.4.3-1-any.pkg.tar.xz  
    sudo pacman -U python-requests-2.4.3-1-any.pkg.tar.xz  
    
    

    Thx to [u:288jioow]karasu[/u:288jioow] and [u:288jioow]lots.0.logs[/u:288jioow]

  • Actually, i just realized myself that i could download python-requests and install it manually.

    Now, I feel like an idiot. Glad you solved it.

  • Is this still required on the 1.11 install medium? I didn’t update it, and everything seems to be working alright, other than a dhcpcd issue I mentioned in another thread.
