Thank you so much for your answer! I have a backup, but want to get rid off the antergos repo. Sorry for my
Antergos-gnome-meta was installed, but was removed now. I did what you said and then additionally had to reinstall xorg-server and now lightdm works again.
I have some other files apart from the ones listed in you tutorial (see below).
Do you think I can continue with your instructions (removing all the remaining antergos packages) now?
(My remaining packages would be:
antergos/antergos-alerts 18.9.9-1 (antergos-base)
antergos/antergos-alpm-hooks 1.1-1 (antergos-base)
antergos/antergos-keyring 20170524-1 (antergos-base)
antergos/antergos-mirrorlist 20180830-2 (antergos-base)
Hey, somehow removing the antergos wallpapers also lead to lightdm failing to start from the next boot on. It probably removed a dependency it better shouldn’t have. Maybe I did something wrong.
Does any of you know a way of reverting the last uninstall of antergos wallpapers or have a guess how to repair lightdm? I actually only copied the command in the instructions above.
Actually the fan speed is not always zero, but sometimes between 2700 and 3400 RPM.
I just copied the text in the moment it turned off. (Fan runs, temperature falls to around 41, then it stops, temperature rises to 49, eventually fan starts again :)).
I am only missing the temp values you have, though that might be because I didn’t let it scan every I/O port, maybe, I don’t know.
I was little stupid not to test reading the sensors before running the configuration, so I guess I cannot revert it now and check what it was before, but as long as the system itself cools properly, I am happy
(and I hope this sensor-detect did not change anything regarding cooling:)).
Ok thanks, it didn’t show any errors and also after reboot shows the same output which seems pretty OK (at least no errors).

Yes, in restrospective running it ewas probably unnecessary.
Guess I just don’t touch it anymore, just a little weird that the recommended Default options are riskier than the alternatives according to the tool tips (because of these I picked non-standard^^).
I will just leave it as it is now, I guess.
Thank you again for all the thorough help and clarification with the installation!!
Thank you again!
So graphics seem to be running all fine for the moment.
Only my fan seems to be behaving little weird compared to Windows… (start, stop, start, stop…)
But I am not sure if this belongs to this thread or I should rather open a new one later…
Actually I wanted to check temperatures and ran sensors-detect in order to check temps with sensors.
I only scanned for the first options of
sensor-detectand answered “no” for the rest of the probes because the text said, it could be risky. Finally I also said no to overwrite /etc/conf.d/sensord and it showed the temps I was searching for - which seemed fine between 40-49 degrees…
Has this changed anything permanently within my system? I am a little scared now as some sites recommend to execute it with the Default Settings (which are described as risky by the program itself though).
Is there a way of checking if something got broken or can I just assume that it didn’t do anything?
ok, this sounds not that good.
For now, I would just like to use the Intel card only and then I would also not need Bumblebee etc… Therefore, I uninstalled xf86-video-nouveau as above, but sadly it still needs
Can you tell me what is the best way to handle this permanently? Is there some way to deactivate it permanently so that it is not used by antergos?
I just meant that the driver is not managed by a package manager in this case, but maybe this was a false assumption. Sorry for the confusion.
One last question: I also think about just using the Intel card and “permanently disabling” the NVIDIA card. Can I do this by just uninstalling the nouvea driver like in the tutorial (sudo pacman -Rc xf86-video-nouveau) or can this be a problem and I should rather blacklist nouveau permanently?
Guess for the last thing I would have to edit the grub boot parameters.
Thank you again joekamprad for the explanation!
Furthermore, sorry for the late answer, as just today I got the time to continue the setup and first reinstalled Windows 10 in UEFI mode…
So I now installed Antergos with Dual Boot next to Windows 10 in UEFI mode.:)
Antergos installed successfully, but - as expected - only runs stable when I add modeprobe.blacklist=nouveau as a boot parameter.
Now, I guess first thing to do is installing the nvidia driver and then try to install bumblebee.
Is it best/possible to run the downloaded NVIDIA driver file directly for installation?
I also found Nvidia-Installer-2 (sorry, can’t link the antergos guide as I get told, it would be spam…) in which a nvidia-installer package is used, but I don’t see where the specific driver is selected then? Maybe installing it directly is the best way from preventing it updating by itself…
Do I need to install Bumblebee only in case automatically switching to the integrated graphics does not work or is Bumblebee always necessary in Linux/Antergos?
I guess for the installation commands I can take the “modern hardware” command line installation option in the guide?
I installed Windows 10 to test how this behaves and it shows both an Intel HD Graphics 620 and an Nvidia MX150 card in the taskmanager. Short test confirmed that both are used by Windows according to the taskmanager correctly.
I bought a brand new USB stick today and first tested a Fedora image as someone claimed in reddit this would work with the MX150. Fedora booted out of the box to the Live Desktop although also showing an error do to some nouveau driver which seems to be the NVIDIA issue. (Only the Touchpad drivers did not seem to be installed or working)
Then I put the standard (non-rescue) antergos image from the website on the stick and although I got the EFI/archiso/vmlinuz error again, in the next boot menu I was able to boot to the desktop by adding modprobe.blacklist=nouveau and this time the desktop did not freeze.
After adding modprobe.blacklist=nouveau in the (I suppose) UEFI menu and selecting the Non-Nvidia option this desktop loaded without freezing .
I am just a little scared to install arch from the last desktop to the Hard Drive as I fear that it will then freeze as on boot up without the option modprobe.blacklist=nouveau. Or is there a way to set this later (sorry for noob question, I am not that familiar with these boot settings)?
Ideally I would simply like to install the NVIDIA driver and have the graphics card working under linux, but if this doesn’t work I am also fine with simply disabling it.
I want to install antergos as dual boot with Windows, which I sadly need for some applications, and UEFI bootup. Weirdly it shows the restriction that I cannot create more than 4 “primary partitions”. I thought this should be irrelevant if UEFI is used or will Antergos install with this MBR boot partition?
Thanks for the hints!
So this error message with “Failed to start loader.efi: (14) Not Found” is normal/ not the problem? But when it does not run in the second option either, it cannot be the only problem… :/
In the NVIDIA option also in UEFI mode, the modprobe.blacklist = nouveau is already present when I press e and go to the right.
I also tried these CD/DVD options instead of USB, but they didn’t work either.
Secure Boot is Off according to the BIOS.
Tried a second USB port, but didn’t change anything.
I have a T480 with Model type 20L6S01U00 according to the BIOS, BIOS version 1.12.
I searched through the BIOS options, but I cannot identify anything that looks suspicious. Sadly, there does not seem to be an option to disable the NVIDIA card, at least I did not found any.
I also bought the laptop as I thought, that the Lenovo Thinkpads would not have such compatibility issues with linux:/
Sorry, didn’t realize the picture was not uploaded.
On any of the options I tried, I get the following.
First it shows the text:
“Error loading \EFI\archiso\vmlinuz: Not Found
Failed to execute Antergos Live System (usb) (\ȨFI\archiso\vmlinuz)…”)
Then an error message shows:
Failed to start loeader.efi: (14) Not Found
This is why I thought that UEFI or anything else might be a problem.
This “modprobe.blacklist=nouveau” I would just append in this boot up line while I am in legacy mode (this second bootup menu), right? In the NVIDIA fallback option this is already part of the many options shown in the text line below :/
Thank you for the ISO link!
I downloaded the antergos-rescue-6-5-2018-x86_64.iso and put it on the stick. Though I have troubles to get it to work.
I tried Live System (usb) and Live System (Nvidia USB), but each time I first get the following error:
Then it switches to legacy mode. I select either the Nvidia or the standard one, Antergos starts booting (Logs appear up to when the wpa_supplicant started etc.). Finally I shortly see some batch console for login, but this disappears after a second or so and I am stuck with a black screen (nothing happens). Depending on the selected option, there is a console-like white line on the upper left, but I cannot type anything.
Did I select a wrong option or do I mount my stick the wrong way?
I just executed the following which claims to have copied 1509949440 bytes:
sudo dd bs=4M if=./Downloads/antergos-rescue-6-5-2018-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sdc status=progress && sync
I have been using Antergos for more or less 1 year on my old T430 notebook without any issues.
Now I bought a T480 and tried to start Antergos by copying the antergos-18.5-x86_64.iso to my USB stick using the dd-command as specified in the Antergos Tutorial.
When I boot Antergos it reaches the desktop, but shortly afterwards the desktop freezes and in all but one try (tried it 5 times) even the mouse freezed and I had to reboot.
I also tried this Nvidia fallback option in the boot menu as I also have the MX150 graphics card, but a message appears that the EFI boot loader has not been found, it switches to legacy mode and eventually into an Antergos desktop. Though, this one freezes as well.
I tested the USB image on my old T430 and it all works fine and smooth, but on the T480 I don’t even get to start Chrome before it is freezing.
Has anyone a T480/T480s and seen this issue or has any idea how to find out what the problem is?
Would be very thankful for any hint on this!
