Getting stuck on installing EOS

Wanted to install EOS as second OS (installed Mint allready) The liveuser system on USB works (using to post this mail) but when I try to do the install the install log gives (after 37%) the remark: pacman (8/23)updating fontconfiguration. It stays there, no more reaction with the mouse or keyboard and I have tot completely switch off PC (with ofcourse no install as result). Can anybody tell me what is wrong? I am not new to Linux, i’ve installed allready a dozen OS’s and never encountered this problem.
HP intel centrino 2GB memory.
Thanks anybody, bobb

I sure don’t know…but it’s entirely possible that 2GB is too meagre to perform a modern GUI install. If no one else suggests, you should probably start the installer manually in a terminal so that you see any error messages.

If you are doing an online install 2 GB RAM is too small since all the packages to be installed are first downloaded into memory and there is simply not enough space.

However an offline install should work.


Welcome to the forum @bobikke :enos: :balloon:

Welcome to the EndeavourOS forum! :smile:

You might want to try the offline install mode.
2GB of RAM is very low, but it has been reported to work.

Welcome aboard!

Are you installing it in a VM? I would also suggest you bump up the ram to 4 GB for the online installs.

Thx everybody for the answers, I succesfully installed now via offline install.
