/etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist not copied to chroot

The default mirror for /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist was basically dead when I was trying to install last night. I ran the suggested mirror ranking program ( eos-rankimirrors ) in the live session thinking it would be carried over during install to the chroot, but it wasn’t. This caused pacman to hang whenever it was trying to pull the main chunk of packages. (Base / Gnome / Printing). I think from the EOS mirrors it needed just 4 packaged but manually doing the pacman commands inside the chroot showed speeds around 5-15KiB/s or timeouts when pulling those files.

I manually copied the /etc/pacman.d/endeavouros-mirrorlist (post eos-rankimirrors) into the /tmp/calamares-root-whatever/etc/pacman.d as soon as it was created and this time the install finished.

FWIW, I’m East Coast USA.

Welcome to the forum! :smile:

If mirrors cause issues at install time, the suggested mirror ranking is reflector-simple for ranking the Arch mirrors.

Usually eos-rankmirrors (which ranks EndeavourOS mirrors) is not needed, but that may of course vary depending on your location.

Note that if you know in advance which mirrors are great for your location, you can sort the mirrors manually. Simply move the best mirror(s) before others.
