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 22.214.171.124 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!
I’ll have to let the experts at you on this one - but from what I know it sounds like you may have run into an outage of the git-based repositories for Endeavour. I had that issue recently when adding the EndeavourOS repo to an Arch system I have, and I had to ‘sort’ the mirrorlist to Germany first to crawl through it… then sync it up and proceed. Might help with identification of the problem -as it appears that the install otherwise happened - ie: the Arch mirrors functioned OK.
If it’s trying to get to GitHub, then that was probably the issue. I could not get to GitHub last night at all (several hours down) even though a GitHub-status said it was online. I even had to go to archive.org to download the MD5 checksum. I’ll check the output of that command in just a little while.
That wget error is caused by the github error when eos-update-notifier is trying to download a file from github. Fortunately it is not a “dangerous” issue, only this one program is affected.
But you can fix it quite easily as follows.
What it is trying to download are actually two files:
There is some bug in the installer.
Before doing anything in it go to the terminal window behind and search for the info containing the link of the failed attempt to connect to the github server.
Right click on it to open the link in firefox.
If it opens close the installer window and restart the installer.
Now it should run ok.
