I hope you can give me some help since I cannot go further with my attempt to install EndevourOs on a usb-pendrive (proper install - I want a portable system).
Let me first tell recapitulate my hardware and procedure
usb live: created with rufus (partition scheme, mbr) and etcher portable
target usb: Kingston Datatraveler. I tried on different ones, new and fast new, of every size.
Calamares install: both methods . I would like to install mate, which I prefer as compared to xfce since it support better compiz and it is a more complete desktop. Anyway, I tried also the offline mode
partitioning: automatic and manual (partition scheme: gpt, sdx1: fat32, 300 Mb, flag: boot, esp with gparted, mount point: /boot/efi; sdx2, ext4, mount point “/”
attemp made on acer travelmate p236 in legacy mode, obviously no secure boot: 8gb ram, i5 5th generation processor (6-7 years old, but not so bad actually), ethernet super fast connection , ping 126.96.36.199 gives normal reply and I can surf the internet with firefox without problem; usb live of endeavourOs runs smooth and fast (that’s why I would like to install it!)
I have read the wiki. I know that calamares has a bug. I could follow the installation through the following command
tail -f /home/liveuser/endeavour-install.log Every attempt to install the system failed. The last one took more than 12 hours (!) and it was not finished. For the last hour I could only see images as event in the log. I was not registered yet so I did not save the log. The same procedure in the case of manjaro took about half an hour and was successfully completed. I can run the whole Manjaro system from a pendrive, but it is a xfce and I would like to give EndevourOs with mate desktop again a try. Could you please give me further advice? Thank you very much for your attention and care
