@joekamprad Hi and thanks for your answer. Actually, I’m using nload and vnstat to keep track on how much of the 2GB plan is being used, I wanted to use the software cause it’s more much easier. Regarding the exact model specification I’m quite not sure, I’d have to ask my friend about it cause I’ve been googling for a way to find out but so far I haven’t had any luck. Sudo lsusb shows this:
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 12d1:1436 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. Broadband stick
bDeviceClass 239 Miscellaneous Device
bDeviceProtocol 1 Interface Association
idVendor 0x12d1 Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
idProduct 0x1436 Broadband stick
iManufacturer 4 HUAWEI Technology
iProduct 3 HUAWEI Mobile
As far as I read, it seems to me it has something to do with usb_modeswitch, but then again I have no experience with this kind of problems. I tried something I read in a post but that didn’t work, maybe I did it all wrong not sure. The only way I get the usb modem to work is by installing and uninstalling the software, then and only then I can select the connection from network manager. I hope the dsl wired problem is solved real soon! :)
Hi everyone! Hope you’re all having a nice life! :) I’ve been having some problems with my wired DSL connection, actually, at the moment it doesn’t work. I got this Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. Broadband stick 3G usb modem from a friend so I can connect to the internet in the meantime the problem’s being solved. When I first plugged it in everything went just fine, I only had to set it up using the network manager and then select the just created connection an that was it. Since this thing doesn’t provide unlimited internet access but 2GB a month only, I have to keep an eye on the traffic so it doesn’t get beyond that limit. The modem comes with a software, since I’ve seen it working on windows before I know it shows traffic stats so people can keep track of the 2GB plan. For Linux there’s a folder called “Linux” and inside it there’s a .sh install file, so I ran it. It all went well and soon after installation was finished the program started but it didn’t work, I mean, when I hit connect, it didn’t. So I closed it and went to network manager just to find out that the usb modem didn’t show anymore, it wasn’t available to select. After a few tries I decided to uninstall the program, and then the modem became available to select again, now everytime I unplugged it and plugged it in I have to install and uninstall the program so it comes available to select. Any Ideas? Suggestions? Thanks in advance for your answers.
Just realized that no “save” button was needed but to uncheck “edit translation” box only :)
You’re welcome. I actually don’t know if Antergos wiki can autotranslate articles to another languages, i never checked it, but that would be awesome. If not maybe we could start a multilanguage wiki. I’m interested on what @joekamprad can say about it since he’s the wiki master :p
I just finished translating your article by following instructions from here https://antergos.com/wiki/translating-wiki-articles/, but I can’t find a “save” option anywhere. Is there any?
not even sure if this is correct though
no, the livecd is minimum but will install a full Antergos setup based on selected configs inside cnchi just as the regular Antergos iso.
Oh well, I knew I might be wrong, like I said I’m not expert and thought that could be the case but it’s clear that it’s not. Thanks for the clarifying! By the way, I saw that you created that wiki article you told me about in my post about the “initramfs” issue. Nice work! I was thinking in translating it into Spanish which is my natural language. :)
@CadenMitchell I’m not expert whatsoever and might be wrong but, if you install Antergos using the minimal iso and choosing Deepin DE, I think you might avoid having to install-uninstall-remove packages and configuration files, since you’ll get just what you need and nothing more, Just an idea, not even sure if this is correct though. :)
I solved the issue of the “Antergos boot” showing under devices in thunar; after googling on that I found that editing /etc/fstab and comment it out does the trick. However, I’m curious because I just checked and my pc uses BIOS not efi.
I did that running:
“sudo efibootmgr” which shows “EFI variables are not supported on this system” Also found this script to find out whether or not you’re on EFI or BIOS:
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS
Mine shows BIOS.
So, why do I have a separate boot partition? I installed Antergos using the default configuration. I could post a thread on that.
I really don’t know about it (i don’t use EFI, so i don’t have a boot partition.)
Neither do I. My pc is bios legacy as far as I know.
Are you sure you unmounted all the partitions after you finished running the commands?
Yes, I’m sure. I checked twice.
You can open a new thread on this new problem.
Is that a problem? I know it shouldn’t be there and that if not careful enough bad things could happen. I’ll google into it and after that I’ll decide whether or not to post a new thread on it. :)
OK, i’m glad you fixed it.
Just let me explain:
I followed instructions from this post too https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1154121#p1154121
You didnt need, unless you broken grub too…
I only wanted you to use the tutorial so you could mount the partition. The link for the tutorial itself was about fixing grub, that’s why it recommended to install grub, but again not needed in your case.
Well, since this happened while updating and I did see that kernel install wasn’t completed cause the pc turned off due to the power failure I thought something had to be done about that as well as with grub, that’s why I didn’t question the “grub-install” step, but as you just exlained I see now that it wasn’t neccesary, maybe.
Yes i usually type the command wth capital -P, it’s easier (i recommended it). Yes -p needs argument which is boring since i have 2 kernels here and i would need to use something like
mkinitcpio -p linux linux-lts
I did google about that -p needing an argument and didn’t find anything but links to package mkinitcpio, however, it’s clear to me now that having used Antergos live from the very beginning would have made things much easier.
I’ll make a specific tutorial and add to the wiki, the issue is happening more often now.
That’d be great! Again, thank you so much for your help!
By the way, now when I open file manager I see “Antergos boot” under devices.
I solved it! @fernandomaroto
I followed instructions from this post too https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1154121#p1154121 where after mounting and doing “arch-chroot” run “pacman -S linux” and then “grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg”. I did that and it worked! And yes, I tried from an Antergos live and you were right it was way much easier, like I said I didn’t remember but minimal iso does provide live mode, no desktop though but a terminal which was all I needed.
“you don’t need to install grub” Well, it was the final step in the mount process link where it said: “Reinstall grub:
grub-install --target=i386-pc /dev/sdx
Where /dev/sdXn should be changed to what you get into your system”
“the tutorial was just for guide the user to mount the partitions and then run the commands sudo pacman -Syu and sudo mkinitcpio -P” I did run mkinitcpio -p but I got: “error: mkinitcpio -p needs an argument” or something like that. Although I now see you used a capitol “P” and checked the link and is also a capitol “P” while I used a lower “p” so maybe that stopped me from solving this earlier.
Anyway, it’s solved. To think I could’ve done this many hours ago but I was pretty sure there was no live mode available in the minimal iso lol I was even downloading the full iso lol Well I learned something new.
Thank you so much for your time and help! :)
