Hi all, just moved from Xubuntu to Endeavour mainly due to the whole ‘snap’ direction they’re heading [insert angry rant here]
Everything is working great and I’m very pleased with my new OS, but some things were not as smooth as they could be, so just wanted to provide a few notes for the devs. The main problem was that the default /etc/fstab seemed incomplete, it has “uuid=” for the root and swap and this seems to cause a 1m30s timeout of /dev/disk/by-uuid on startup, I modified fstab using blkid to fill in the uuids and that fixed the problem…VERY fast boot and shutdown!..seriously OMG!
The other issue is that two WIFI dongles I have don’t work very well, they show up in lsusb and I see my wifi router in the list, I provide the password (and double check it), but it won’t connect, on the second WIFI dongle, it doesn’t work unless I unplug it, wait a bit and plug it back in and mostly it works, but not always. I’m connected to the internet via LAN cable now, so happy with that solution rather than getting them working, but here is their info FYI:
ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter and the second one: ID 7392:7811 Edimax Technology Co., Ltd EW-7811Un 802.11n Wireless Adapter [Realtek RTL8188CUS]
They’re both probably quite old, so maybe they’re firmware isn’t included?
Anyway, thank you to the developers, I’ve always wanted to run Arch, but not geeky enough Also Xfce has been my fave DE for a while now.
All the best,
