• Problems with the Installation using ZFS as FS for Antergos


    I tried to install Antergos, but when the installer starts, i get the message “Cannot create download package list (metalinks)”.
    I run Cnchi from the terminal and i saw the output messages when it says that couldn’t download zfs package and a problem with the kernel.

    Help is appreciated.
    Greeting from Ecuador.

  • @ernestodiazmd and this is the exact output from the terminal:

    I hope this help to find an answer

  • Hi,

    I’m afraid you’re using a not updated mirror. Yesterday we packaged an updated version of the zfs module that works with the 4.9 kernel.

    Please, use another mirror (edit /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist) and run cnchi with the --disable-rank-mirrors parameter.

    Or even easier, just wait a few hours so the mirror you’re using is updated.

    Cheers!
