Seems like it goes against Arch Linux philosophy.
A user is supposed to know what hardware he has and how to get max from it. To install a minimal set of strictly needed software. Without useless configuration files and bloatware.
Otherwise Antergos risks to be reduced down to Windows, Ubuntu, Manjaro level.
…Besides, kernel 4.16 is not exactly stable yet from what I’ve seen.
I didn’t get such an impression. Siduction runs on 4.16 for a few days, maybe a week. So far, no problems happened with 4.16.
$ uname --all Linux alexsic.net 4.16.1-towo.1-siduction-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT siduction 4.16-5 (2018-04-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux $
But Siduction uses its own, slightly modified kernel. Not a default one. Sorry for mentioning other distro.
…if the problem is in my team…
It is not your problem. The forum’s software is badly working for a long time. For three or four months.
It doesn’t allow to edit our own posts. It periodically issues a fake error message about the lost connection to the forum. It doesn’t allow to log into the Antergos Wiki and to edit an old article from an OS, which is differenet from Antergos itself.
Seems like Antergos 18.4 full ISO does not boot an existing OS from the hard disk. Discovering only now.
When the Boot from Hard Disk option is selected, it restarts Cnchi. Antergos live session initial screen and menu are presented again. It is repeated each time the Boot from Hard Disk option is selected.
The boot loader config probably doesn’t work as expected. Can not exclude an error with boot loader’s experiments on my side…
May be a problem for users unaware of other ways to boot a computer.
1 - First screen of ISO boot
Switch the 2nd item with the 1st item to look like this:
Install Antergos or use Antergos Live
Boot from hard disk (Advanced)
Booting an existing OS from the hard disk is a smart default choice.
It ensures a user to get into a working OS and computer in any case. Whether he knows or not which option to select, what key to press, how to proceed, or simply does nothing.
Switching to boot an existing OS by default was and remains a highly appreciated choice, made by Antergos devs two or three years ago. Thanks for that.
To say the truth, Antergos devs weren’t the first to make this smart choice. openSUSE installer boots an existing OS by default since 2012.
I have to learn how to edit and copy from the terminal.
It shouldn’t be difficult. The tee command is frequently used to create and to write something into new files from terminal.
This command will create killme file in the current working directory. Usually in home, in ~/ :
tee <<<'This file was created from terminal' killme
The killme file in the home dir will contain the text:
This file was created from terminal
This command will create the pacman-test.conf file in the /etc directory:
sudo tee <<<'This is a dummy pacman-test.conf file. Do not use it.' /etc/pacman-test.conf
Try to not use apostrophes - the ’ character - in the text. tee interprets them as text and|or command delimiters.
A text may be selected in any application and copied into clipboard with Ctl+C. It may be pasted into terminal with Ctl+Shift+V.
Terminal output may be searched for any string of characters. Just press Ctrl+Shift+F. A found text may be selected and pasted anywhere we wish.
…But there is no option to do this when i go to:
You simply searched for it in a slightly wrong place. The Application Menu button is found in Window Decorations --> Buttons tab. It has the hamburger icon. Drag-n-drop the icon where you want it to be on the titlebar.
