• Boot Option for Live


    Hey guys,
    Just want to give a feedback about an error that I’ve encountered during Live boot session. Actually it wasn’t a big deal, just want to share in case there is anyone will be having same problem stuck during boot up in the future.

    I noticed that there’s no nomodeset at the boot line parameter, which making stuck and not responding, so I had to add the line manually

    It’s all works fine now.

  • Haoren,

    I used Unetbootin to create a live USB of Antergos (successful) however, when I booted up with the USB drive the session failed to launch, I believe I encountered the same problem you described. I was dropped to a command line, but was not sure what to add to manually continue the boot sequence. What was the [b:308ui2ox][u:308ui2ox]nomodeset[/u:308ui2ox][/b:308ui2ox] line you entered? I would like to see if your solution will fix my problem too.

    If you have an intel or Nvidia Optimus card I know what the problem is, I’m making new isos to fix that problem and boot normally. This new isos will use SNA acceleration method for intel graphic cards instead of UXA, that it was causing the freeze. It is a GDM+UXA bug

    @hacs
    Unetbooting overwrites our syslinux config so it is not compatible. You can use the command “dd” and maybe other windows software like “lili” (I didn’t tested this one)

    I wonder if this is the problem I’m getting? Everything boots ok but when it gets to ‘Network Manager service’, I am told that a ‘dependency has failed, wait online’ (?). I then get a message about complaining to Via Technologies (the manufacturer of my graphics card), and also the Login service and GDM not being able to start. The sequence then repeats, until I switch off.

    On a seperate note, any chance of a mailing list to alert users to new ISO releases, or other Announcements? For security reasons, I don’t do Twitter or Facebook.

    Well done for getting the new release out, and I think the new name will soon be second nature.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    Faidoc,

    Thanks for the information, I went ahead and created a .iso on DVD just to get started, but I will have to take a look at using Lili to see if it will work for the USB. I will also take a look at the linked article too, much thanks!

    Much thanks for the link, about halfway down the page specifies the information which needs to be updated in the syslinux.cfg file on the USB drive. I made the update, rebooted and Antergos was up and running within about 15 seconds!! I appreciate you helping me learn something today!!

  • Any word when the new isos will be ready?

    We’re fixing some other things we found and if everything goes well I will do the release soon.

  • For all who are having the issue with Intel not booting into GDM:

    This is how I solved the issue: When booting of the installation media, make sure you switch to tty2 by pressing ctrl+alt+f2. You will get a login there, I just logged in with root. Then at the prompt do a “systemctl stop gdm” which will stop gdm from loading. after navigate to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d and then use your favorite editor to create a file called 20-intel.conf which has the following contents:

    Section "Device"  
    Identifier "Intel Graphics"  
    Driver "intel"  
    Option "AccelMethod" "sna"  
    Option "DRI" "true"  
    EndSection
    

    Save the file and then do a “systemctl start gdm” This will get you to the desktop and start the installer. After the installer is finished and you reboot your machine you will have to perform the same task again but then its done in the installed system with your login username and password. After you have have done the procedure and gotten to a desktop you will need to do the following to get everything working correctly with the intel driver:

    Under /etc/modprobe.d create a file i915.conf and type the below:

    options i915 i915\_enable\_rc6=0
    

    Save the file and then edit the file /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and add the following to the line MODULES"" so it reads:

    MODULES="i915 drm\_kms\_helper intel\_agp"
    

    Save the file and perform a “mkinitcpio -p linux”. After its completed just reboot and you should have a perfectly working desktop.

    Unetbootin is no longer good tool for creating a bootable disk. I would recommend win32diskimager for Windows users as suggested by Ubuntu community.

    Check their Launchpad [https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer][0]">[https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer][2] or directly to the Sourforge project page [http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/][0]">[http://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/][3]

    This tool works charm and always solved many boot iso problems.
