My video card is Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti and I installed the proprietary graphics drivers (415.27-5) via cnchi.
I’m on a Desktop (connected to the internet via an Ethernet cable) so I assume there is no wifi chip involved, but if I’m wrong, how would I find out which wifi chip I have?
Lately my computer randomly freezes a lot.
When this happens the video feed freezes first, then input stops working (both keyboard and mouse) and eventually audio will stop as well.
Each time it freezes I have to press the reset button to get back in my computer.
I decided to do a fresh install, thinking that would probably solve the problem, but after a successful install I started configuring some basic things in Cinnamon and all of a sudden it happened again (about 5 minutes after booting into a fresh install).
I wasn’t doing anything at the time this first freeze happened (the computer was idle) and had nothing extra installed yet.
Since the fresh install it has happened about 10 times already.
I thought maybe it’s the kernel, so I tried booting into the LTS (fallback) kernel and then I noticed something strange.
The LTS kernel wouldn’t get past a black screen after the using version 240 message from systemd.
The LTS kernel always used to work on this computer.
What can I do to solve this annoying freezing problem?
If I need to provide any more information, please let me know :)
@lilaboc I think I understand your issue and have a pretty simple solution for you.
- Simply open up any window such that you can drag its panel icon (example: nemo).
- Right click the panel/task bar and toggle
Panel edit modeON. (this can also be accessed via System Settings -> Panel -> Panel edit mode)
- Now drag the icon of the opened window on the panel to the correct position. (there are three possible positions: left, center, right)
- Right click the panel/task bar and toggle
Panel edit modeOFF. (this can also be accessed via System Settings -> Panel -> Panel edit mode)
I hope this helped
I see that Visual Studio Code is available in the repositories, so I guess I’ll give that a try first instead of the .tar.gz download from their website.
I wonder why Visual Studio Code in the (NON-AUR) repositories is at version 1.27.2-1 though, while the latest version online is at 1.29.1: https://code.visualstudio.com/updates/v1_29
It’s the same with the browser slimjet, which is at version 18.104.22.168-1 in the repositories, while the latest version online is at version 21.0.1(Beta): https://www.slimjet.com/en/whatisnew.php
My understanding was that Antergos is a “bleeding edge” rolling release distribution and thus always offers the latest versions of all software.
Does “bleeding edge” rolling release mean something different?
Could you please explain this inconsistency in software versions?
@ringo32 Thanks for your response.
I’m not quite sure what to do with that information though, regarding my questions.
The important questions I’m trying to get an answer to are:
Since I only need a single particular file ( libgconf-2.so.4 ), how do I install just that file alone, instead of the entire packages that provide it?
Is it in any way harmful to have gconf installed alongside dconf, dconf-editor and gsettings-desktop-schemas, since gconf was deprecated?
I’m a fairly new Linux (Cinnamon) user and have a question about installing a single file instead of an entire package.
When I try to run Visual Studio Code from terminal using
./codeI get the following error:
./code: error while loading shared libraries: libgconf-2.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
pacman -Fs libgconf-2.so.4gives the following packages that provide this file:
extra/gconf 3.2.6+11+g07808097-4 usr/lib/libgconf-2.so.4 multilib/lib32-gconf 3.2.6-2 usr/lib32/libgconf-2.so.4
The gconf package calls itself “An obsolete configuration database system”.
Also, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GConf mentions that “It was deprecated as part of the GNOME 3 transition. Migration to its replacement, GSettings and dconf, is ongoing.”
I already have
My questions are:
Is it in any way harmful to have
I hope I’ve asked my questions clearly.
If I need to provide any more information, please let me know.
I’m having the same issue (only my error says “Can’t download needed packages” instead of “Can’t install necessary packages” but I assume that’s just a typo of @l1vee )
The entire error is as follows:
Antergos Installer - Error
“Can’t download needed packages. Cnchi can’t continue.”: add_fatal in /usr/share/cnchi/src/misc/events.py:83
and at the bottom you can see it’s stuck on:
Fetching antergos-desktop-settings 1.14-1 (194/1081)…
For future readers:
sudo pacman -Syyuu --root /mntdid NOT work.
sudo pacman -Syyuu --sysroot /mntdid NOT work either.
The following DID ABSOLUTELY WORK AND I’M SO HAPPY!!!
sudo arch-chroot /mnt
sudo pacman -Syyuu
@manuel Ah ok I get it now. :)
At first I thought the explainations were part of the commands themselves, but now it makes sense.
after mounting successfully I tried:
sudo pacman -Syyuu --root /mnt

“error: Partition / too full 91266 blocks needed, 76934 blocks free
error: failed to commit transaction (not enough free disk space)
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.”
I guess this has to do with the USB stick live ISO itself being too full, because I have about 100 gigabytes of free available disk space on that SSD.
Is there a special procedure for creating a live ISO on a USB stick, WHILE KEEPING THE REST OF THE USB STICK SPACE AVAILABLE?
Or maybe something else is going on, I don’t know.
I would prefer to keep reinstalling Antergos as an absolute last resort.
@fernandomaroto Thanks for this suggestion, I have a feeling this is going to work :)
I have an EFI system, but the I don’t understand the > parts of these commands and I don’t understand why I need to mount more than once.
the EFI-boot (fat)
part is confusing me.
Should I literally copy this part, or should I fill in something appropriate (which I don’t know what that would be) on this spot?
Could you explain to me how I should enter these commands with an example (without any placeholders)?
when I type:
"Disk /dev/sda: 238.5 GiB, 256060514304 bytes, 500118192 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: gpt
Disk identifier: FC1164CB-54F4-4E73-ABE4-D98F74E71A95
Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/sda1 2048 411647 409600 200M EFI System /dev/sda2 411648 935935 524288 256M Linux filesystem /dev/sda3 935936 483993599 483057664 230.3G Linux filesystem /dev/sda4 483993600 500118158 16124559 7.7G Linux swap
So I assume sdXn should be replaced with sda1 everywhere.
when I type:
I get a bunch of items and one of them is my Broadcom Limited Netlink BCM57781 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe (rev 10) controller and then a list of information about it.
At the bottom of that list it says:
“Kernel modules: tg3”
So I typed:
dmesg | grep tg3
and got no result.
@joekamprad ifconfig and ip link both only show the loopback device.
says: “Note that lo is the loop device and not used in making network connections.”
so I guess there’s something really going wrong here.
@joekamprad thanks for your suggestion.
I’m not entirely sure how to connect with dhcpcd, but when I just type:
in the shell I get:
“dev: loaded udev
no valid interfaces found
no interfaces have a carrier
forked to background, child pid 281”
and the second time I type dhcpcd I get:
“sending commands to master dhcpcd process”
None of the servers have been commented.
pacman -Syyu keeps failing.
I thought maybe there’s something wrong with connecting to the internet, so I tried to ping and got:
“ping: Temporary failure in name resolution”
Host gives another error:
“host: error while loading shared libraries: libicuuc.so.61: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory”
When I try to upgrade (as root) with: pacman -Syyu I get a lot of errors.
“error: failed retrieving file ‘multilib.db’ from arbitrary.mirror.uri : Could not resolve host: arbitrary.mirror.uri”
I’m getting more than 100 of these errors.
So I’m not sure how to proceed from here.
I’m pretty sure something went wrong with updating linux earlier as you suspected and that the warcraft III update had nothing to do with this black screen problem.
@fernandomaroto Thanks for your quick response.
In the mean time I tried adding the emergency parameter to the kernel (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/General_troubleshooting#Recovery_shells).
That got me a working shell (logged in as root) and I can see my files with the ls command.
Since that works, I assume I don’t need to boot into a live ISO anymore?
Does this change anything to the advice you gave and if not, should I try to follow your advice exactly in that order?
I’m not familiar with (regenerating) initramfs and I also do not know how to change the login manager.
I will try to find some information about these topics on the internet, but If you or anyone else has the time to guide me through these steps, it would be really helpful to me.
Thanks again! :D
