• Antergos as a guest os


    I installed Antergos inside gnome-boxes from my fedora 22 workstation. The experience was poor.

    1. I installed from antergos-minimal iso instead of default one and selected xfce as desktop. Downloading and installation took a long long time compared to other oses.
    2. Did not recognise monitor resolution. Had to set manually. Even after setting manually, it changes on every boot to 640x420
    3. Mouse is sluggish at times and becomes invisible if I shift to host os
    4. os gets frozen frequently and had to force stop.

    I don’t know who is responsible for these. Whether antergos or gnome-boxes or fedora or xfce. Does anyone use under a VM? How is the experience?

  • Adding to the list

    1. The OS gets suspended/ paused to disk often even when installing. Once it gets suspended, installation does not resume forcing to restart from scratch!
    1. this is a two parter
    • minimal vs normal ISO will both install the same packages.
    • You are downloading and installing every package from the internet and not from your ISO, this is because Antergos uses Arch and Arch packages are updated all the time so it is much more practical to make net installs. Your internet connection speed will also affect the install time.
    1. This sounds like a XFCE + Boxes issue. It could be an Antergos + Boxes issue. Either way, Boxes is partially at fault for this.
    2. This is a Boxes issue.
    3. Could be Boxes or Antergos issue or a combination of the two.
    4. Boxes issue.

    Yes I have done this on multiple occasions with VirtualBox and Antergos works just fine within VirtualBox.

    If the iso contains the up to date version it will install that.

    Now for Vmware support :D

    Yea but how often does that actually happen? :)

    I am one of those weird people that like VirtualBox over VMWare. :)

    Enough to notice during the install.
