Once like 1.5 years ago, i could just install antergos that way
now i need to reinstall it. and all the happens is
error: unknown filesystem
entering rescue mode
right after fresh install. i also tried with no labels. since that seemed to be a problem back in 2015. - didn’t helped eighter.
im kinda going nuts since this is in a chain of problems thats ongoing for about 2.5 months now.
actually i do know pretty exactly by now how encrypted boot works but i cannot find the problem.
only thing i notices that there is no
cheers help pretty much appreciated else im going to try something like extra boot partition in ext2 or similair… - which i would hat to do…
i needed to find out that on antergos ( my laptop) the reg set preferences are set to us.
iw reg get
which leads to the problem that i cannot not connect to a certain wifi i would really need because it is running on channel 12 which is forbidden in US. so i cannot see the net and do not connect and do not have no internet.
with aricrack-ng suite i can see nthe net so my chip is defenitley capable of finding it.
i can also change the setting with
iw reg set JPfor example but then i still cannot find the net. also not after putting wifi down and up again…
so A i would like to change the setting on my pc
B it would be good if theres taken care of that while installation.
Hi thanks for the anwer
here is my log

i mostly don’t understand it i just see two big “waiting-times.”.
from .35s to 23 and from 23.57s to 107s
my system is booting up very slow eversince i installed sometimes i thought it got even slower. - but i really need like 3 mins for booting up min.
I have btrfs and everything encryptet so i need to typ in the pw for the partition 3 times, but thats not the main thing that eats time it takes definitely forever after i unlocked the last partition.
ok i just today randomly found the systemd-analyze queries
systemd-analyze time Startup finished in 12.128s (kernel) + 2min 27.464s (userspace) = 2min 39.593s
and as with everything not running smooth in antergos lightdm seems to be the one to blame.
stemd-analyze blame 50.474s lightdm.service 32.137s NetworkManager-wait-online.service 28.813s man-db.service 21.389s mnt-xxx\xxxx.mount 8.816s [email protected] ...
and there is some loss by mounting network shares but that is my fault.
It is also quiet fast at tty and then randomly waits for up to 30 seconds doing nothing visible before it starts cinnamon-session.
so mainquestion any ideas about what to to with the 50 sec of lightdm?
@Adam_eM so we with the HD6x cards for real can’t install any driver ???
i just made isntall from catalyst-test AUR and failed the aticonfig command and (there was this notice about dropping support but only at the end of the install!!?)
and then i reverted to my system before (btrfs snapshots) and did the same with from the catalyst stable repo again and failed at the same point…
and i thought well then we have to use legacy driver.
but you say they’re only for 2/3/4 ??
I have a ~3 year old laptop with an intel hd 3000 and a AMD Radeon HD6750M. After installation everything worked fine and im pretty satisfied with antergos since i did not break it immeadeatly anymore after 3rd install
hence i wanted start gaming, and i relised very poor performance, and i begann reading.
and eventually :
(as well as everyblogpost about the topic i could find somewhere.)
Im pretty sure, my opensource nouveau is installed working and active, and also the gpu offloading seems to work. BUT. The performance of my ati gpu is even worse than the intel. - so what is wrong? what can i do.
Here output of glmark with ati and then with intel.

Since the poort performance, i also tried to install the catalyst drivers from the unofficial repository ( https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AMD_Catalyst#Installing_from_the_unofficial_repository) . which resulted in loads of display failures of cinammon on first boot, and i kinda immedeatetly reverted back to before install (im using btrfs ans snaphots ( thank god).
But i just read som e minutes ago that new post about installing catalyst https://forum.antergos.com/topic/3351/how-to-install-a-proprietary-amd-catalyst-drivers/2 which include some extra steps i did not found in the arch wiki. so maybe that yould help/solve.
I will eventually try that again with that new help, and i have a bit more confidence now about the system in general.
BUT if possible i would prefer to use the opensource drivers. - i dont need cuutting edge performnce ( i obvisouly dont have the hardware for that too here) but i want to be able to play some games ok.
i read somewhere installing an older version of the opensource driver could help. but i do not think thats so viable. how are your thoughts about that and how yould i do that?
im on antergos for like a week now. and by the time i used my laptop the first time on battery i realised there is no energy saving mode… - after a bit of research late night i decided to install laptop mode tools wich is available in aur (i left everything default in the install routine)
the next time i bootet up, my login in screen turned white after the firs cklick (i use cinnamon) - but eventually by clicking around i managed to login - it behaves like before - but all gui elements seem to be just white. - i can figure our whats there since the mouse changes symbols by hovering over certain areas and also kontext menu works as normal.
much more importandly i figured out back on my desk wired connection is not working anymore, it keeps saying no cable attached.
after that i decided to remove laptop mode tools again. - wich resultet in some strange screen after shutdown and the computer did not cut power itself. - luckyli it bootet again. but the ethernet and lockscreen issues stay the same. only some aditional issue with the external mouse stopping to work 5 sec after you plugg it in only under certain condition has gone (but this issue at least was described on the wiki page of arch about the laptop mode tools)
my mainquestion do you belief its easier to fix this - or to reinstall the system again? - i have a seperate /home partition and someone told me actually most configuration are saved there. - and i only installed like 10 programms yet so it would be easy to do that agein. - in addition i want to set up autologin which i could have choosen in the installer as well - but didnt and tried to enable later for like half an hour but failed as well - so with a reinstall that would be fixed as well i guess.
thank you very much for your support.
and just for the records: life on wifi is hell… ^^
