ive been trying to install antergos on another machine, but iso 17.11 doesnt seem to be working. first, it does not move past the splash screen, and when i hit escape it takes me a terminal where i get error: failed to mount /dev/loop0 error.
can anyone help me fix this, or provide a link to an older iso that works.
ps: legacy support enabled, and secure boot disabled.
Realtek wifi is problematic …https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wireless_network_configuration#rtl8723ae.2Frtl8723be
@joekamprad thanks for the link, I tried a few options but no improvement in packet loss, will try some more options. Marking this solved, since wifi is working nonetheless.

The wifi is working now, I had to enable dhcpcd.service, but the speed is very very slow, and it is showing around 37% packet loss. I dont know why, because on ethernet i get 24mbps and 0% packet loss. Is this because im using VDSL connection? But on the phone i get good wifi signal, maybe NetworkManager does not catch VDSL signal too well?
Thanks for helping me with this.
Error: Connection activation failed: (53) The wi-fi network could not be found
this happening on normal boot, or after a suspend ?
@joekamprad Thanks for responding, this happens on normal boot, I have not tried it after suspend.
I’ve been trying to connect to wifi but nothing seems to work. I get the following error:
nmcli dev wifi connect <SSID> password <password> Error: Connection activation failed: (53) The wi-fi network could not be found
ifconfig wlo1: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 ether <xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx> txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet)

And the following network processes are running:
/usr/bin/ModemManager /usr/bin/wpa-supplicant -u /usr/bin/NetworkManager --no-daemon
Can anyone help me with this? Let me know if any other details are needed.
how do you start it?
this is what i do, binding keys to it since i use it on demand
bindsym $mod+<any_key> exec --no-startup-id redshift -l 28.63:77.21
the -l flag is for geo-location, since it did not find correct location for me automatically, http://www.geonames.org/
$redshift -l LAT:LON
if you want to start it at boot, not sure but you can try:
exec --no-startup-id systemctl --user start redshift-gtk
i have not found a way to terminate it, so i have to do killall redshift but this is not a problem if you want it to remain on all the time, does anyone else know a better way to bind keys to switch it off.
@bradynapier As a matter of fact, Antergos has been the most stable distro for me. Been using it for more than a year now, and I never encountered any system-breaking issues despite all the messing around I do with it. And I have reinstalled it several times on different hardware, it’s been the smoothest installation ever, for me. That said, I do understand your frustration, but I think Linux is more like, some distros work for some, some dont work for some, for example, Manjaro installation never worked for me, that calamares installer, and the thus installer, neither of them worked for me, even though there are many people who swear by them But anyway, I can assure you Antergos is probably the only forum that’s so helpful. Try giving that attitude to Arch or even Ubuntu for that matter.
