Welcome! You’ll do great here. There’s a lot of folks who have come here recently.
As far as stable or rolling, this is based on arch so the only option is rolling. If arch updates, so do we.
Although one of our members has gone and setup a “stable” workaround for us. Maybe @jonathon can link to it and explain it a bit more since I don’t really understand how that works too be honest. It does require some leg work to get going, but it could be the stability you’re looking for.
Welcome aboard Hope you enjoy the OS and the forums. As for that other place you mentioned that’s a life raft that they cut a hole in so to they could see if there are ant sharks below, and then they wonder why they are sinking. Again welcome aboard.
I think you have been fed a whole bunch of misleading information before coming over hear. As a arch user Arch is as stable as it gets in fact more stable than most of the fixed release distros out their, You came from Manjaro it has its own problems but if you prefer Manjaro that is fine with me.
But like everything else if you don’t try Endeavour you will spend your life wondering if you mad a mistake,
Its your decision only you can make that choice
As always … test in a VM first and make up your own mind.
There will be a little more work initially as EndeavourOS only installs a vanilla DE, but once you get it setup exactly as you wish it should be at least as stable as your previous distro.
As with all systems … make sure you have a proven backup and restore strategy and are comforable chrooting into your system if required. That said I have yet to need either on any Arch based system I’ve run, excluding disk failure.
Alright, thank you everyone. I ran Endeavour on a usb stick and i managed to get pamac running (got too used to it). I think i might switch to it. Thank you a lot for the help and the wholesome welcome!
I personally would not recommend that on any OS. I’d keep the update search as is and before doing any updates research them. If one of your concerns is updates breaking various programs I haven’t run into that yet in EOS. My suggestion is install timeshift and timeshift-autosnap and grub-btrfs(if you are using a btrfs file system). For the later you will have to update grub to get the timeshift option to show on your grub menu.
