Ok, finally testing the latest TESTING ISO with Cnchi v0.5.7
Attempting to install the 32bit version to a Virtualbox VM running on a 64bit host.
Started the Live ISO and clicked on Try-It. This did close the initial Cnchi screen which gave me the desktop.
[As a side off-topic note, I run the 64bit Live USB on the ASUS 1215B netbook and get to this same place, click Try-It, and nothing happens, except only the button pushes. The touch select/activate on the the touchpad also doesn’t work, have to press the touchpad left button just like a separate mouse to accomplish this. After the install, touch all does work properly though!
Now went through the follow instructions to make sure Cnchi is up to date with the testing.sh script:
Why do I have to download this? Should it already be in the ~/Downloads directory?
Had to first get to a terminal so that I could download and run the script.
The only terminal that is on Activities/Apps? list is a Root Terminal. Why no non-root-terminal available?
Try to run this. It asks for a password. Tried: live,password,antergos None would work.
Run a non-root-terminal with Alt+F2, by typing in gnome-terminal. It runs.
Run wget [http://antergos.info/testing.sh]">[http://antergos.info/testing.sh] to download the testing script. It downloads into Antergos, not ~/Downloads, as that was where the terminal started me. Didn’t cd to Downloads first.
No problem. Run the chmod +x testing.sh command to make it executable.
Run sudo -E ./testing.sh command. It brings up Cnchi v0.5.7 AGAIN.
All of this to get back to the same place. That was a fun exercise nonetheless!
Now I run the Graphical Installer:
Taking me through several questions – which I answer, I get to choose either erase the whole disk or, set up my own partitions.
I want to set up my own with SWAP(2G),ROOT(17G),HOME(7G),/home/user/STORAGE for the rest. So I choose that.
The next dialog can’t find sda1 – or any other disk for that matter. That was out.
So I went back to let it erase the whole disk, and I chose to make a separate home directory.
I had chosen to Install KDE (despise Gnome - add on this, add on that, just to get close to where KDE already is! I digress, sorry) at one of the first questions, so was ready to continue.
Moves along a little and gets to: Updating antergos-test database
Stuck at 2% with the slide show still moving. This is where I have to kill it.
Ctl+Alt+Esc won’t bring up a KILL icon. Even going back to the terminal and using Ctrl+c won’t kill it.
Simply exited Linux and that closed all.
Now will wait for Next Sunday’s Test release – which I look forward to.
BTW, why not build Test releases anytime that Cnchi has fixes, or other fixes and/or updates to the Live Antergos build enough to build another. In other words, why wait till Sunday!
Keep up the good work guys. It is looking great up to this point!
