I used Endeavour OS on my two laptops, today I decided to go for an installation also on my desktop. After the installation tho, somehow I found arch linux instead of Endeavour. I think because I unselected almost all packages from the installer except the really needed ones. E.G. networkmanager, mtools, dosfstools… can I fix this?
I think you’ll want the
eos-hooks package. I think.
Thank you a lot, I think something else might be needed tho, do you have any idea?
Hmm, well, I don’t actually use EndeavourOS, so…
I was under the impression that
eos-hooks took care of /etc/lsb-release and /etc/os-release, which should be all you need to identify the OS. Perhaps I am mistaken.
What is it you wanted to have installed?
When I log in in tty or also in neofetch the result was Arch linux.
Because now the result is not archlinux but “x86_64” like a generic OS.
What happens if you run
Okay so, the problem is I didn’t have lsb-release installed. The file existed but contained only one line “rolling”. I removed the file and installed lsb-release and it worked. Thanks a lot
Solved right now, thanks a lot!
Yes, if you uncheck the Endeavouros section of the install, you don’t install everything that actually makes it EOS.

at least this groups is needed from basedevel common group to have EndeavourOS running
