As the Title says:
I downloaded the May 8th EOS build, put on a SD Card, and booted it up using the Nvidia Drivers option.
- Ryzen 7 2700
- 32GB DDR4 @ 3200MHz
- MSI B450 Tomahawk Motherboard
- 1440p @ 144Hz
I opted for the Online installer for customization. After I fill out the first couple of pages, it gets to the “package selection” page, but it errors out saying it’s unable to fetch package lists & to check my network connection (screenshot attached).
Things that didn’t work:
- updating the welcome installer (went from v2.6-1 to v2.7-1)
- updating the mirrors
- allowing HTTP mirrors
- changed my network settings from DHCP to static (since I have it set to static anyway in my router)
- disabling IPv6 since my router has IPv6 disabled as well.
I’m at a loss on what to do exactly. I’m even using FireFox on the LiveCD right now to type this, but yet it keeps saying there’s no network/can’t fetch package lists.
- The MD5SUM was verified before burning to SD card
- GPT formatted SSD
- Ping 220.127.116.11 works normally
Other things I noticed that are unrelated but felt I should bring them up:
(1) When you manual format there’s no option to “label” your partitions like gparted allows. Not important, but would be nice.
(2) When you manual format, it throws a very helpful popup error stating that you need to create a /boot/efi partition with an “esp” flag. Unfortunately, there’s no esp flag available, but there is a boot flag which I read on Google that that is the flag it’s talking about.
(3) The Offline installer did install (but couldn’t boot, that’s another issue). I created sda1 with a /boot/efi partition with FAT32 formatting and ~2GB of space, and enabled the boot flag. Not sure what went wrong on that, but it kept hanging with a blinking cursor (underscore).
All help appreciated, and thanks for making this distro!
