• When will the installation be functional?


    I find it impossible to install Antergos from the latest ISO.

    If I run Cnchi installer on offline machine, everything is fine. But of course it is not possible to proceed with installadion on offline machine, so you connect to the internet. But as soon as it connects to the internet, the Cnchi installer gets updated to a broken version so that it can no longer be launched.

    This is true for both 32bit and 64bit ISO images and has been the case since weeks.

  • this was already brought up http://forum.antergos.com/topic/2186/can-t-install-antergos-on-my-mid-2014-rmbp/2
    the test iso mentioned works for me.

  • Doing

    yaourt -Sy cnchi

    fixed it for me

  • @Heema Thank you, This worked for me too!

    Out of curiosity, what is the y switch (-Sy)? It doesn’t seem to be in the man page

  • Testing version of cnchi script failed to complete installation on my Core 2 Duo (2 GB RAM) laptop due to a corrupted antergos.db database file. The pertinent entries in the /tmp/cnchi.log file are as follows:

    2015-05-26 17:22:08] [pac] DEBUG: opening archive /install/var/lib/pacman/sync/antergos.db

    [2015-05-26 17:22:08] [process] ERROR: “Can’t create download package list. Check log output for details”

    Does anybody have a solution or update concerning the aforementioned error?

    Thanks, Frank

  • @CSUF-Titan

    Before running Cnchi, try to update your databases:
    sudo pacman -Syy

    Does this help?

  • @karasu Thank you, downloading and forcing a fresh copy of the master package list from the server using ‘pacman -Syy’, as you instructed, enabled the ‘automatic’ install of Antergos operating system with Mate desktop to continue and complete successfully.

  • @CSUF-Titan I’m glad it worked!

    Cheers!

  • I have tried everything mentioned on the forums with no avail - I was really looking forward to using Antergos since the guys over at JupiterBroadcasting praise it.

    I can’t get the darn thing to install without CNCHI crashing and getting hung,

    Here is the log files and such:

  • Hi there,

    Here is the behavior on my lenovo X230 and how I solved it here:
    -1- I transfered install antergos-2015.04.12-x86_64.iso into a usb stick
    -2- I boot the usb stick, cnchi is automatically updated after the session is opened
    -3- BUT … I can’t launch cnchi successfully: command not found
    -4- I install cnchi: sudo pacman -S cnchi
    -5- I remove pyparted when prompt ask
    -6- I launch cnchi successfully now !
    -7- I install antergos

    I’m afraid it looks like you have problems connecting to Antergos mirrors:

    error: failed retrieving file 'extra.db' from mirror.ibcp.fr : Operation too slow. Less than 1 bytes/sec transferred the last 10 seconds
    

    Also, this worries me:

    > python-parted and pyparted are in conflict.
    

    What’s the result if you boot with your livecd/usb, close Cnchi, and issue this command:

    sudo pacman -Syy

    NOTE: In an installed system is not advisable to do this, you always have to use u with that command: sudo pacman -Syu but I want to check if the livecd databases can get updated or not in your case.

    Cheers!

    Yes, pyparted has been renamed to python-parted, this way is clearer that is a python3 module (all python2 modules start with python2). Leaving the name pyparted is ambiguous (it’s python2? It’s python3?)

    Cheers!

    When rebooting and trying the above steps I get to ‘Installing using the ‘automatic’ method’ and it hangs.

    It always says I cannot download the ‘extra.db’ - I googled that and it appears that a ton of other people are having the same problem with the ‘extra.db’, I thought maybe it was a firewall issue here at work so I attempted to do it with my computer at home and am having the same problems.

    For now I installed Fedora 22 on my work machine and everything is working fine - Looks like I will be waiting until there is a stable version of Antergos out.

    Thanks again guy!

  • In my case Pacman -Syy didn’t solve the problem as Cnchi still doesn’t launch.
    I have no connection issue, only removing pyparted-3.10.1-1 (in conflict with python-parted-3-10.5-3) work for me.
    By the way comme back to antergos as Fedora22 doesn’t look as good and it’s slowier.

  • @pierrefreelancer

    I don’t get it… so it worked for you then?

  • Yes it works for me but as I said not out of the box: I need to install cnchi manually (sudo pacamn -S cnchi and then when prompt ask to remove pyparted-3.10.1-1.
