• Cnchi 0.12 - What's going on?


    Hi,

    Not much time has passed since we released Cnchi 0.10 yet we’re finishing our Cnchi 0.12 release.

    We’ve been able to do many things in a short amount of time. New Cnchi 0.12 will have these improvements (these are already coded!):

    • New “Summary” screen. Before accepting going on with your installation, Cnchi will show you what will install and which changes is going to do on your system. This screen is always shown, it doesn’t matter if you choose automatic or advanced installation.

    • Better managment of package conflicts.

    • Calculate package list and its metalinks BEFORE partitioning. This way, if some package is missing Cnchi will tell you and fail, but it won’t touch your disk. You will be able to fix the issue (fix mirrorlist, change package name in packages.xml, …) and try again without rebooting. This has needed a lot of work as Cnchi was not designed to do this when we coded it.

    • Lots of minor changes, but important (firefox now installs its language package, a lot of fixes in packages.xml thanks to @Wyn and @just , …)

    Oh, we do not desire to make a lot of changes, so there are a lot of enhancements that will be postponed until 0.14

    EDIT: What’s left? Basically a hardware module fix for broadcom wifi drivers. It seems that sometimes broadcom-wl and/or b43-firmware are not installed. Once this is fixed we will be ready to start testing Cnchi 0.12

    I’ll try to keep you posted of our progress.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: It will have a new feature that will install Steam and PlayOnLinux, thanks to @Wyn

  • @karasu

    Will the new game feature I submitted make an appearence?

    Cnchi will show you what will install

    An editable list would be cool for adding your own pacman packages.

  • Will the new game feature I submitted make an appearence?

    Yes, I forgot about the game feature, sorry.

    An editable list would be cool for adding your own pacman packages

    We do not want novice users mangling the package list, and expert users can edit packages.xml themselves ;)

    XD , can’t wait for 0.12.

  • what about plasma 5 as DE option?

    Not yet.

  • Hi!

    We have next version ready for testing. As somebody suggested before, we’ve released a cnchi-dev version for you guys to test before making a new release.

    You can run the liveCD and update it with :

    sudo pacman -Sy
    sudo pacman -S cnchi-dev
    

    Version should be Cnchi 0.11.90

    Oh, I highly recommend to run it inside a VM, just in case.

    Cheers!

  • Hmm. Yes, cnchi-dev is at 0.11.90-1 right now.

    But when it is started from terminal, from root account

    # cnchi-dev
    

    it downloads and runs the stable 0.10.26-1 version here. What am I doing wrong?

    New Cnchi 0.12 is available on our staging repo:

    Tried it with antergos-2015.09.03-x86_64.iso from Testing, installing Kde 4. Worked like a charm. Details are here.

    Thanks!

  • EDIT: It will have a new feature that will install Steam and PlayOnLinux, thanks to @Wyn

    I love the way Antergos handles Features like “Firefox”, “Samba” etc! And now a Gaming feature! Exactly what I’m looking for my HTPC/Gaming machine.

  • Hi. This looks awesome. Out of curiosity, why was the option to install Nvidia / AMD drivers removed?

  • Out of curiosity, why was the option to install Nvidia / AMD drivers removed?

    You have discovered us. We removed it as it was not fully working in all cases. We want to improve it and make it work as it should.

    Hi -

    I’m using the Cnchi 0.12.1 installer (2015.08.18 ISO) on a system with an nVidia Geforce GTX 750 video card (using the English defaults). Quite a bit of the text on the splash screen appears as unreadable white pixels; usually in the middle of words, so it’s still usable, but barely. Moving the mouse around sometimes changes the text. Pretty sure this is a driver problem, but thought I would mention it.

  • @karasu

    Just to confirm it’s the Nouveau driver. After booting in to Antergos, Mate edition the menu text etc has similar missing text.

    The nouveau driver is basically unusable with this video card. +1 me on the list asking to have the proprietary driver install put back in to Cnchi.
