here I am again,
this time, I am trying to install antergos on a Acer 720p chromebook after seeing a podcast from JupiterBroadcasting saying that this was a perfect antergos laptop.
Here is my problem.
It is not possible to boot this chromebook with the latest Antergos 64bits iso.
This is a known bug with Arch iso images newer than 2013.10.01 (see [url:1zqtfhhe]https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Acer_C720_Chromebook[/url:1zqtfhhe]). By chance I still have an Antergos ISO from August 2013. This time, the laptop booted up flawlessly.
I was not able to perform the installation as cnchi stopped, complaining about an error during package list recovering (if I remember well).
I installed the latest version of cnchi either as described [url:1zqtfhhe]http://forum.antergos.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1285[/url:1zqtfhhe] or modifying the default antergos repo to the french one that includes a recent version of cnchi. Unfortunately cnchi refused to be launched complaining about GTK version (a variable not found in the python script line 129).
Is it possible to use a newest cnchi version on an old Antergos ISO?
Thank you for your help (Mr Lots.0.logs perhaps?).
- See Arch wiki web page for preparing install
- Boot using Antergos 2013-08-2 64 bit iso (I still have a copy of it if someone need it)
- Download latest CLI installer: [url:1zqtfhhe]https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Antergos/antergos-iso/master/configs/antergos/root-image/arch/setup[/url:1zqtfhhe] and copy the setup file to "/arch/setup"
I chose btfrs file system with compression enabled to have more room on the “small” 32 Gb SSD.
- After install, reboot. If unable to log in switch to tty console (Ctrl+Alt+F2) and symlink gnome.desktop to default.desktop
sudo ln -s /usr/share/xsessions/gnome.desktop /usr/share/xsessions/default.desktop
then reboot and it shoud work.
- go back to Arch wiki web page to install screen/touchpad driver and fix suspend.
Personally I installed antergos this way then changed lightdm to gdm. I backed up my install using Clonezilla then restored chrome os allowing me to remove the write protecting screw and enable default seabios boot. Then I restored my antergos install and that’s it.
For those who would like (need) to use Antergos 2013-08-2 64 bit iso (for chromebooks essentially) I put it there : [url:1zqtfhhe]https://mega.co.nz/#!JBAnVSAa!Jf0OjTjz-SZ3K82owuIa-O2y40yDbrDlbvhtoTJ3TKc[/url:1zqtfhhe]
