Antergos

Last Update: 2018-10-06 23:01 UTC


Antergos is a modern, elegant and powerful operating system based on Arch Linux. It started life under the name of Cinnarch, combining the Cinnamon desktop with the Arch Linux distribution, but the project has moved on from its original goals and now offers a choice of several desktops, including GNOME 3 (default), Cinnamon, Razor-qt and Xfce. Antergos also provides its own graphical installation program.

Cnchi have lots of problems, i see users all around the globe complaining and the problem still goes on and on and on...i keep asking myself what are the devs doing?!

This used to be my number one distro, but im not even able to install it these days as far as it provides users soooo much problem during install...their installer is a shame and should be replaced by calamares or something else.

Cnchi does work but need to be updated first. A good internet connection is a must. It can be wifi, if Antergos can find your wifi card.My laptop has a Broadcom wifi in it Antergos could not find it, until I forced it to load. It is a YMMV kind of thing.

I installed the cinnamon variant. After looking at linux mint for a long time. The out of the box gui is jarringly different. Some of the menu text is coloured blue and some white. I just downloaded an new theme that made it more comfortable.

My install did not add windows to the grub menu. i knew how to add it. This could be a problem for new linux users. This is not a new problem, it happened in 10.8 too.

I like the AUR support 'OTB'. This dramaticly expands your access to software.

- Cnchi often freezes.
- antergos-mirrorlists' defaults in iso do no work out of the box and there is only 1 enabled so there is no default fallback.
- cnchi fails to install bootloader and freezes
- sometimes after successful install, when you reboot it fails to boot due to missing partition for no reason
- install is slower compared to installing arch from command-line

the sad thing is that this issues are not isolated to this version only. This has been an issue in Antergos eversince i started using it to install Arch (17.x). If your installed sucessfully, good for you but it has more fails than successful installs
