Pride, honour and purity.
Right, yes; “problem” “solved” then.
Now if we may all pretend i never asked… thanks, lol
P.S. At joe: Not any .isos, no, only dual images in particular; has happened before, but it might be the disk itself. It’s a Samsung T3: https://www.samsung.com/semiconductor/minisite/ssd/product/portable/t3/
It’s honestly all good really. Bit of an old fart, is all! I remember ‘minimal’ from the DOS days and it used to signify a non-“full” installation, you know? So my recollections, combined with that “less powerful hardware” note… Anyway, thank you both very much for your patience
why you need to do this?
Starting backwards, because Etcher (apart from being too visually… trendy for my tastes, lol, though there are worse crimes than that) and each and every program i’ve tried do the exact same thing on my flash drives; if i make a DD, goodbye to some portion of my original capacity; never recovers after formatting, not without my re-partitioning it, hence BOOT ICE.
Doable and within a minute, a minute and a half, nothing to cry about, but… if i can optimise or simplify something, i’m all up for it.
As to what i want, yeah, pretty much. As stated in the OP, no “live try out”, no need for a “DD” image, just the Antergos installation part.
( am very willing to do this on my own, but have no clue how… am not necessarily looking for a link here )
Writing all this, it kinda dawned on me to re-read the Home page… Jeesus, am i that dumb? Is that what the Antergos Minimal ISO is?
I had not noticed that 'till now! This is embarassing, lol…
Edit: Apologies for this by the way… in my defense, it wasn’t laziness, just… mind works in funny ways some times; had seen that the minimal image was for less powerful hardware and had thus immediately crossed it out; had i taken a moment to think what i was reading… anyway; feel free to delete the thread please!
(did i win the stupid award? I know i did)
Am looking for something a bit more straight-forward than the current dual image solution;
Simple (or as simple as can be anyway) install solution, no “live try out”, straight to installing, with no dual image formatting, as each and every time i do this, i need fire up BOOT ICE (don’t know how to do this from Linux…yet!) and reconfigure my flash drive (yes, yes, i know, i am using Etcher… still losing disk capacity though).
Is there such a way?
I know how basic this sounds but… google all i want, what is suggested is either the current and default solution, or a self compiling; i’m not quite there yet :)
Logic would suggest is possible, as for example, there are sites that provide such images:
Except i’m not really willing to pay 15bucks for something offered for free; truth be told and all.
Would appreciate any pointers!
Been having some issue, namely no sound at all, so started looking and asking around.
Apparently there was a patch that was meant to be included in this kernel, but if it is, no go for me.
If you want to read what i’ve read, here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=236364
Not a complaint or anything, just asking for advice on what to do.
I am really loving this!
It’s the first time in many years i don’t feel like i’m fighting my OS. You know?
Been having a blast so far ( haven’t slept yet), i just cannot believe the things you can do with it!
Loads to learn and the more i get down to specifics the harder it will get, but am hooked now. Not going back, lol
Sincere, utter thanks to each and every one of you for doing this.
Am actually enjoying using my PC again.
Thank you and a happy holidays to you all :)
(am more eloquent when i’m rested. I’ve no time for resting now)
Thank you very much Bryan, appreciate it :)
(am typing this from Antergos btw^^ )
Incidentally, most stuff i Googled for link to posts within this forum, so thus far at least, it has been O.K.
Am actually surprised, it’s… easier than i thought it would be; mostly just different.
Famous last words huh!
Thanks a mil Joe :)
I cannot type the three-letter abbreviation for a certain optical media format, as your site considers it a spam attack…?.., but that did the trick alright!
Am now installing!
Hopefully i’m doing it right, going for a custom 600Megs FAT32 EFI-Boot and all the rest of my disk as an ext4, designated simply ‘/’, which i am hoping will be enough for ‘Root’?*
Left the default selection of Grub2, as it appears it will be of use in the future.
- yeah, i know… first time on a bicycle and i had to choose cystom… say nothing, really.
(hopefully [part ii], Google shall provide the rest and i won’t get to annoy you folks any more than i actually have to)
Much obliged yet again and merry Xmas/happy new year to you all :)
