I've just released Arch Anywhere 2.2.5. This release is focused
bug fixes. The label issue when using UEFI boot on USB has been
resolved. I have also fixed a few minor bugs in the installer. I've
added lxdm-gtk3 for users who select lxde-gtk3 (this resolves a conflict
between lxdm & lxdm-gtk3). I've also made some tweaks and updates to the
Arch Anywhere XFCE4 Desktop. This includes color and theme updates. Have
also updated and improved the .zshrc for users who select zsh as their
shell (shown in photo).
All and all this is not a huge release but it addresses some minor
and makes a few improvements to the installer and desktop. If anyone has
any issues with the installer please feel free to let me know. Also if
you have any ideas or suggestions for the next release. Enjoy the
installer and keep on using arch.
Arch Anywhere 2.2.4 has finally been released and contains many enhancements and bug fixes to the installer. Full syslinux
support has been added back for both BIOS and uEFI boot. I have also added support for systemd-boot when using uEFI only. I have also added the option to select your
display manager when installing any desktop / wm. You can now choose from lightdm, gdm, lxdm, sddm (default lightdm). I've added the xf86-video-nouveau open source
nvidia driver as well as support for DRM KMS when using the latest nvidia drivers.
Fixes have been made to auto detect graphics drivers based on your chipset manufacturer and in the case of Nvidia is able to determine if you need the latest
or legacy (340xx,304xx) based on the chipset PCI ID. This removes any confusion when selecting graphics drivers. The mirrorlist select menu now contains an option
for all mirrorlists as well as all https mirrorlists. I've also made some changes to the Arch Anywhere XFCE4 Desktop (shown in photo).
Overall this is a pretty big release and addresses some major issues found in 2.2.3. Development continues and I will be trying to update the ISO once a month. As
always feel free to let me know if you have any ideas, suggestions, or bug reports. Enjoy this release and keep using Arch.
Arch Anywhere 2.2.3 has fianlly been released. This release features
many changes and fixes improving the over all usability of the installer and
speeding up the process. I've added the budgie desktop to the installer,
as well as the option to install a list of 6 different pre-configured
command shells. This release also features support for PPPoE internet
connections and a few additional packages added top extra software.
Along with updates to the script I've also created a custom
unofficial pacman repository (Arch Anywhere Repo) allowing users to install some
pre-compiled packages. This includes: arch-wiki-cli, fetchmirrors,
pacaur, & yaourt. More packages coming soon. If there are any custom
packages you would like to see added to the repo let me know.
I've also removed support for syslinux with MBR BIOS boot due to a
bug I can't seem to figure out. Syslinux support remains only when using EFI
boot. The next release of Arch Anywhere should feature the Chinese
language as I've been struggling to get this feature working. More to
