So can anyone tell me, what is the point of the Antergos wiki and what kind of info should be put on there and when on the Arch wiki?
After asking on the Arch forum and IRC. It seem that we can’t put anything in the Arch wiki.
At least for most active Arch users.
The main points is:
- I haven’t installed everything by myself so I can’t reliably tell if my issues aren’t my setup’s fault and would also happen on Arch
I also fell that’s it’s a bit «Antergos is not Arch, end of story». Unfortunately my request for feedback on my draft article has been put in the forum’s bin and deleted since…
So I can’t cite the negative feedback that I got.
Oh, I’ve found the feedback I got on IRC:
install archlinux or go to #antergos
if the laptop issues are reproducible on archlinux, feel free to create an article on the wiki. if you haven’t tried it with arch, there’s no point
I don’t see anything negative, just informing you that different distributions aren’t really catered for
TBF, it does come off as negative. think of putting in work writing something in the hope of helping a wide audience and then being told to take it elsewhere…
not that the response is incorrect, but it could potentially come off as negative
by definition, what’s relevant to arch users is what happens on arch
don’t take it personally, it’s mostly an automated response these days with how many other non-arch related topics they have to deal with
they also have their own repositories now and we have no idea on what kinds of things they configure that may be relevant or not to those issues
How do you know if the issues are not antergos specific? Are you actually aware of all the modifications antergos does to your system?
I don’t care about antegros
So it’s not all negative and are there are reasons. Maybe it wasn’t very diplomatic but anyway I’m obviously biased here.
I’m sorry if I ended up polluting the Arch community and caused that Antergos users will be rejected a bit more in the future because of me.
@EarthMind If your are interested, there is an existing article for hardware support on a Dell E6420 which can be a basis for your’s, also feel free for give any feedback or edit it: https://forum.antergos.com/topic/7195/feedback-request-on-a-laptop-hardware-compatibility-wiki-article
Hi, it seems that it’s the first article of that kind in our wiki.
So it might be used as a base for subsequent articles(like the future one for my current laptop).
And that’s my first wiki article and that and I’m not a native speaker.
Therefore we should be strict on the quality. (many of us might expect our wiki to matches Arch’s wiki quality)
Here is the article: https://antergos.com/wiki/hardware/dell-latitude-e6420/
I don’t have the laptop anymore (sold it because of the issues ) so I can’t add much more info than there are in the article.
But ask for more details anyway, I might remember things or have messy notes about stuff I missed when writing the article.
So go one with any remark about phrasing, structure, etc. And don’t hesitate to edit it directly.
The wiki doesn’t have history(which is a very big concern) but here is a backup of the page, so do not fear of editing because of the lack of history.
I’m not confortable how the wiki is arranged
I also agree
Anyways, please, do write the article and add it.
So here it is
edit: lol, if I post the link to our own wiki, it’s filtered as spam. >_< So omitted it and then I edited the post to add it…
Thank @logos88 it worked also for me.
So I guess we have a mandatory manual intervention here?
I was considering recommending Antergos to friends who don’t need to how to deal with that kind of stuff but I forgot that it was still Arch (even if this one issue is Antergos-specific)
Hi, I’m planning to move a draft of an Arch wiki article to the Antergos wiki. The article is about feedback of running Antergos on a Dell E6420. (I though it would be relevant to Arch users as nothing seemed Antergos specific but got mostly disagreements about that so I can’t put it in the Arch Wiki).
As Antergos doesn’t use MediaWiki, are there existing articles about laptops that I could use as models? I couldn’t find one for now.
