Artemis Live USB Freezes on fontconfig updateing

Cheers Guys,

tried to Install latest Artemis on my Virtualbox.
I always get stuck on 37% Updating fontconfig configuration and the whole System freezes.
If i do a sudo pacman -Syu before (with updates mirrors) the system also freezes.
Any ideas?

Welcome to the forum!

It would be helpful if you could share the output of inxi -Fxxxz so we could see what hardware you have.

I would also recommend testing your memory.

and the settings used for the box would be interesting too.
in addition

is a bad idea on the live session. Never needs to be done and will cause only issues. As it could break lib versions for needed stuff from installer.

means the host or the box?

Welcome to the forum @neuromancer :enos: :enos_flag: :partying_face:

The Livesystem in the Box is freezing. The Host System is ok.

I would wonder if you may be running out of memory.

Less than 2GiB is probably enough to run EOS but it might be too little for the installer and the installation process.

Yes, because on the live ISO, the filesystem overlay is hosted in RAM. That pulls the all the update files into RAM and then also installs the packages into RAM and you don’t have enough available for that.

haha. i was just gonna write that i found that out too. i thought for a small install like that 2gb would be enough. works now. thanks for getting back! : )

2.5GB is minimum in virtual box for the VM for install process if you do online install… offline work with 2GB.

Calamares uses RAM temp mounts…

And online installs will download into this…

So it could be LXQT or LXDE would work but Plasma/kde could fail :wink:
