… If cnchi needs a working internet connection to start the install or run with elevated privileges cnchi needs to notify the users about this. I’ve used many Linux distros, but this is was my first distro that I could not get the installer to start. I wanted let it go and move on, but I tried installing with the new ISO and Ethernet connected on my laptop and the install completed successfully. …
… If cnchi has bugs they need to be addressed
Please, bear in mind that Arch & non-modifying Arch based distros need an active internet connection in order to install. This is because of its rolling nature. It keeps updated/upgraded daily, so from the time an iso is released to the time you use it many things will have already changed. Proceeding with installation means that you ll always get the very latest software. In case you could install it offline you would end up with a broken system.
Another common mistake we do. We hurry installing it. But, wait! Try it first! Do you like its looks? Its performance? Does it sit well on our own hardware?
Taking this into account, I really don t think there should be a notification in Cnchi that you need an Internet connection.
Another common mistake I can point out. Doing some homework beforehand, so as to know what I am going to be dealing with. Having heard of a distro just isn t enough information. Especially when it comes to distros orientated to middle/advanced Linux users. Despite the fact that with Antergos you can have a ready-to-go Arch system in 15 mins, it s still Arch! It simply spares you the time to go through hard times reading beginners guides, taking notes, etc (do it some time, though, it s really fun)!.
Finally, to give a full answer to you (though not right in somebody else s topic), I recall blaming Cnchi for your VLC not working. I m not sure if it is the installer s problem. I myself found it tricky and swapped it for KODI (think I read Debian are dropping it if I am not mistaken).
Please fell free to give any feedback/suggestions/reports that could help the devs . And please be specific/detailed.
