Always when I have some excessive amount of spare time, something always gotta go wrong and waste 90% of that available time for fucks sake.

Wanted to install raw antergos on my new usb for pure chrooting into it, but it gets stuck on preparing the disk and there seems to be no solutions to it.

    Not sure why, but I've always had issues like this with installers when I veered off the "standard path" of installing to disk in a very normal way, letting the installer choose how to install what, where to put it, what are the mount points etc. Perhaps it wouldn't be a bad idea to take the Arch Wiki and do it manually from the command line?

    @Condor oh I thought I've mentioned that in my rant, guess it got lost in my endless edits haha.

    Yeah, I will absolutely try to do it with the arch wiki next, already have the necessary tabs open, I just would really want to have antergos to antergos chroot, as I've seen some people have awkward bugs with chrooting to "normal" arch from its distros or rather when arch-chroot unmounts.

    @JoshBent oh, I meant installing Antergos as you would install Arch actually. They're pretty much the same distro anyway ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    @Condor well they are, but antergos forces the installer, I didn't yet find a way to make it boot to just cli, though I haven't tried it as much yet, so maybe it is literally one of the boot options lol

    @JoshBent hmm, it does have a terminal emulator, no? It's been a while since I've tried Antergos so not sure.. but it'd be weird if it didn't have one. Alternatively it should be possible to use another tty (tty2-6) instead, but I don't really find that very intuitive, given that you'll probably want to keep a web browser open as well (which is possible in tty with tmux and elinks, but.. meh.

    Also, if the installer allows you to see the command-line output of whatever it's doing, that should be useful as well to see where things go wrong.

    @Condor oh that's right, it should have the terminal emulator indeed, I'll give that a try and see how far I come thanks for the spark haha
