    What makes this Antergos?


    I installed Antergos about a month ago, and I’ve been using it as my daily driver ever since. I’ve done quite a bit of customization, fixed all the issues in journalctrl, installed packages, drivers, and hardware. After a few weeks, I can say that I forgot all about Antergos and simply used the Arch wiki and forums. Now I’m remembering Antergos, and I want to understand what is different in this distribution. Off hand, all I can think of is the distribution credit in grub.cfg. Otherwise, this seems like a generic Arch installation. Don’t get me wrong. I really appreciate the ease of installation. I’m just wondering if I’m missing some core ideas, as I initially went straight to Arch resources and not here. Did I make everything more difficult for myself? Cheers. M

    ArchLinux has no preconfiguration.
    Antergos have this, depending also on what you choose in the Installer Cnchi what is also from Antergos.
    Antergos have a own Repo too with extra packages and themes, so theming is also done by Antergos.

    Archlinux do not support Antergos installs and want us to use our own Forum and Helpchannels.

    It is mainly a difference in philosophy, but also controversially discussed ;)

    Thank you. I’m very interested in this as I’m very happy with Antergos. I have four ways to add packages, pacman, yaourt, add/remove software, and discover. Yaourt of course accesses the AUR. Pacman and the GTK frontend I call Add/Remove Programs seems to access the Arch Linix mirrors, and Discover is something of a mystery. It wasn’t included in the distro, but I quite like it. How would I explore the Antergos repo? How do I know where a package is coming from when I use pacman or discover? Thanks. Joe.
