Thanks, but are these not updated during the install? Or is this not the case despite updating the mirror list prior to running the live installer. As I am in the UK I also selected alternate country mirrors for redundancy (France, Germany, etc)
Nothing wrong with Octopi. I just didn’t particularly like it when i tried it which was a long time ago. I use pamac-aur-git and rarely have issues with it but, you can and sometimes it does happen to users. It’s all about choice so you can use what ever you feel comfortable with. I would recommend trying Octopi. You don’t know until you use it. I may even try it again myself.
The mirrors do get updated on the install but i still find when you have issues this procedure works well only if needed. Updates from Arch are constant so some mirrors may not always have updates yet or the mirror has a problem and you can’t seem to fetch it.
I am not sure I understand why that would be a mirror problem. It looks to me like this is an offline install which has packages that are now a couple months old including the arch keyring. Maybe I am missing something you are seeing.
I have just edited the script you mentioned/etc/calamares/scripts/create-pacman-keyring and that has fixed the online installer. Currently at 36%. Tried to install a different DE following the offline install and desktop composition what displaying strange behavior when switching between them at logon, so decided to re-attempt online install. When I first read your comment, I must have misinterpreted what you were saying. Hopefully the online install will now complete.
when I had that problem
I just used
sudo pacman -Syyu archlinux-keyring
and I update mirror list
and then it worked
it works every time
even with endeavouros-2021.08.27-x86_64.iso
i like endeavouros-2021.08.27-x86_64.iso better than the new version
Thanks for that . Online install successfull although I am a bit puzzled as to why I am getting a tty terminal session, when I did actually choose a DE. I have read other posts and connection was present at the time of the install and I did not choose a community edition .
Will try and enable either sddm or lightdm in the morning and see what happens.
Ping also returns error in name resolution yet I have connection to the internet on wifi to my mobile and other devices. Will look at enabling network card via cmd line. Maybe that has not been configured mid or post install.
So, ransystemctl status NetworkManager and that showed that Network Manager was disabled then ran systemctl enable NetworkManager and that created symlinks however not yet rebooted but when I tried to ping www.bbc.co.uk i got once again could not resolve host. The PC where eos is installed is hard wired, but also does have the ability to run wireless too if needed, but not gone down the route of entering SSID and password for the Wlan.
Post reboot update…
Still no joy with connection despite enabling NetworkManager and NetworkManager.service.
lspci identifies 2 network cards, one intel and one realtek (however this is not the r8169 as mentioned in prior articles as being blacklisted).
Also as I am not seeing a login greeter screen I have also tried to enable sddm, as lightdm does not seem to be present, and reboot but to no avail. Still presented with tty terminal, which is no issue as at least I get to learn a bit more on how Arch works. .
I am not sure if you can tell how determined I am in moving away from Windows, although I am a Microsoft Certified Professional haha…
