The May release has arrived

Originally published at: https://endeavouros.com/news/the-may-release-has-arrived/

We’re proud to announce the release of our latest ISO.

In this release, we’ve taken care of some bugs on certain hardware and the actual performance.

The May release is shipping:

  • Firefox 76.0.1-1
  • Kernel 5.6.11.arch1-1
  • Mesa 20.0.6-2
  • Calamares 3.2.20

The issues that have been resolved are:

  • Fixed boot issues for ATI/AMD and Nvidia GPU’s
  • New network driver included r8168
  • eos-log-tool available on the Live environment to provide logs in case of an issue
  • Faster installation after fixing pacman-key --refresh-keys issue
  • DHCPCD is no longer included since NetworkManager doesn’t support the DHCPCD plugin anymore.

i3-wm

The Windowmanager i3-wm has received some small improvements like:

  • Thunar is the default file manager
  • The default terminal is the Xfce4-terminal
  • Some improvements on the keybindings
  • A hint inside the config files on how to update them to the latest versions on Github.

We’d like to thank Alpix mirror, the Linux Pizza mirror and the Academic Computer Club at Umeå University (Sweden) for providing us with their mirror services.

You can download the ISO over here.

Awesome, I am just in live environment about to clean install EOS on my quest to dual-boot it with freebsd :smile:

hello,sorry, I had not been on the site yet and there I am already at 4GB to send

Note that as EndeavourOS is a rolling release, you may not need to download this new ISO to be up to date. Simple normal package update is all that is needed.

But if you want to install particularly from this new ISO, then of course you need to download it first… :wink:

Those who had issues e.g. booting the previous ISO, this ISO should fix many of the problems, so please give it a try! :smile:

I have installed your May release endeavouros with the online XFCE4 on an external SSD. Calamares worked fine this time. I partitioned the SSD with gparted prior to starting calamares and then did a manual format, editing each partition to select the esp boot partition, swap and ext4 root, and re-formatting each existing partition.

I prefer Openbox and look forward to that option later. In the meantime, I now have an external ssd to play with various window managers.

I went a bit clean install crazy today. Installed with the new iso 4 times and each time was nice and smooth, and much faster than the previous iso

Gone are the days where vanilla Arch is faster to install than the online installer

Good job on improving the mirrors and fixing the issue with the keys

The UEFI boot is not working. Only BIOS. Why?

Hello @mrleles
UEFI boot is working. How did you create your live usb?

Edit: Make sure Secure Boot and Fast Boot are disabled in UEFI

Try the BIOS entry that says partition 2 in BIOS boot menu.

Unluckily the link doesn’t work. It gives me a 404 page not found error.
Looks like it is a problem on their side.

I think it was pulled down, the original article was written for FOSSBYTES and Linux insider just copied the entire article.

That could be an explanation. Thanks for the information.
