• Remove Antergos repositories

    Hi, yesterday I have installed Antergos because I needed a graphic installer to install Arch. Now my question is, how can I remove/disable the Antergos repositories to have only the Arch repositories and to have a plain Arch system?
    PS: I want to mention that it is the first time when I installed an Arch based distro. :) Thanks

  • Just edit /etc/pacman.conf and remove these lines:

    SigLevel = PackageRequired
    Include = /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist

    But I do not know why you would want to do this… ¿?

  • @karasu I just want a 100% Arch machine :) Thanks for help

  • Arch is not a machine, a distro, an installer, a subset of repos.

    Arch is the knowledge about Linux.

    The best way to acquire it is to install Arch itself.

    I don’t even think doing it once is worth the knowledge anymore in the long-term. If you get get stumped I doubt you’ll remember how you did the process.

  • Installing Arch to me is about like building a car from scratch… Yeah, you may learn some things, but at the end of the day, if you just go to the dealership and buy a car, you car drive now. You can still tinker, customize, and learn about the inner workings of the car. Some people just want to be the driver and not work at the factory that makes the car.

    Arch has lead to alcoholism for many poor souls… Antergos aims to fix that. Seriously, I like Arch, but that installation method is insane. Yes, it’s well documented, but most people just want to use the dang computer and not read/compile for days and have to visit forums and IRC to get help for the many peculiar situations they come across throughout the installation process.

    My two cents…

    It’s not that bad, following the same guide over and over is the annoying issue for me (Lots of Vms) 👍 .

  • I personally have done Arch and Gentoo installations, good learning experience but for mass deployment, its Antergos or no one will ever do Arch.

  • Try installing Anarchy.

    In my opinion, it’s what Antergos should have always been: a vanilla Arch installer with a selective handful of essential plugins from their optional repository.

    In my experience with Antergos, it’s way overdone. There are a ton of random, non-essential, out-of-date, and sometimes broken packages that I would much rather just install from the AUR, avoiding all these issues completely. Which really makes me feel that Antergos is abandonware.

    And that’s what Anarchy does: allows you to flash Arch to your drive quickly, with some quick, need-to-have packages, like yaourt and Google Chrome (these are the two I picked). And, I’ll say it again, their repo is optional, so if you are an Arch purist, you can go that route.

  • The easy pure Archlinux install is to use the Antergos live ISO and remove antergos Repo from pacman.conf.
    After this you can follow archlinux install guide and copy paste to terminal…

    As you will have still all Antergos related modifications after Antergos install…

  • @wyn Wow! Is this topic old or what?

    Anyway, I’ve failed over and over again to install Arch on real hardware (not VM) and have failed 100% of the times.
    Do you recommend any particular guide? Just the Wiki (which have failed on me before)?
