• Installation Blues


    Hello. I’ve been trying to install Antergos 2014 04 14 from a live usb drive, but to no avail. I’ve read through some of the threads, tried different methods, and still not having luck. I tried a different method today, and saved the error that it gave me on the command line. Hopefully this helps to fix the problem. Does anyone else have any other solutions?

    Here’s the error:

  • Hi,

    Are you connected to the internet when running the testing script? It appears that it is unable to download the necessary packages to update cnchi. Maybe it was a mirror issue that will resolve itself. Try again and let me know the result.

    Cheers!

  • I had the same problem. I fixed it by installing git:

    sudo pacman -Sy git --noconfirm
    

    At first this didn’t work, so I edited the pacman.conf file to remove the auto-detect server and use a specific server in my country (USA).

  • I’m connected to the internet when I tried to install antergos. It might possibly be a mirror. And kenny, I tried that method, but it didn’t work so well for me. Should I change what mirror to use?

  • you should try that. If you’re familiar with vi or nano, it’s quite easy to add a ‘#’ to the auto-detect line and remove the ‘#’ from another line.

  • In /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist select this one:[code:co2f8wo8]http://repo.antergos.info/$repo/$arch[/code:co2f8wo8]I can say with 100% certainty that it will be available and provide a fast transfer.

    Make the change before you run the testing script. Also run “sudo pacman -Syy” to refresh the databases and then the testing script will take care of the rest.

    Cheers!

  • You could easily do this with the following:

      
    sudo sh -c "echo 'Server = http://repo.antergos.info/\\$repo/\\$arch' \> /etc/pacman.d/antergos-mirrorlist"  
    
    

    After this, a “pacman -Syy git --noconfirm” command should work.

    If you’ve previously tried running the testing.sh script and haven’t rebooted, you may need to remove the “lock” file. If you have just fresh-booted to the live usb, this is not required.

      
    sudo rm /tmp/dev-setup  
    
    

    Hope this helps

  • It worked! I added the mirror to the list, and downloaded testing.sh ran the commands, and the installer popped right up! Thanks a bunch kenny and lots.0.logs! I’ll keep you updated on the progress

  • I hope they can get most of it sorted out by sunday

    [b:1pt1tebw]Don't forget to mark your thread as [SOLVED] [/b:1pt1tebw]

  • Don’t we have a autodetect-mirror-check?
    Some code that checks the connection to the repo and takes the next one if it doesn’t work?
    I think we have ~5 threads already because the autodetected repo doesn’t work.
    It’s a shame that users can’t install Antergos because of this.

    Also it would be safer if cnchi would get an up-2-date mirrorlist first. It could ask the user where he comes from and bam!, downloads a freshly generated mirrorlist before it goes to the installation routine that would never give an error again

    Something like this if you didn’t understand what I meant

    Please give a feedback after you get help so the thread can be set to solved.

Some of the issues of the 5 threads you mentioned were caused by a problem with our mirror network (which is very small at this point). Others are caused by arch mirrors but those will be less problematic since there are hundreds of mirrors in arch’s network.

    Cheers!

  • haha…if you find anyone interesting in mirroring please have them contact us

  • I have a Rapberry Pi somewhere
