how do i add user to sudoers this problem has jjust occuered since new install
The only time I saw something like this happen with this ISO was when I had a corrupted USB. I downloaded a fresh ISO, checked the Sha Sum, reformatted the stick, and re-imaged the ISO. Then reinstalled. Although the error I was getting was the user did not have permission over the home folder.
ye i fixed it mate it was skipping one part on the install script all good now sudoers works just cleaned this computer out ready for new asrock x570 motherboard maybe it will be installed tomorrow
This time try and stay away from Thunderbird. make sure everything works and then if you have problems again after installing Thunderbird you know it was the culprit
Glad you got it sorted.
just finished reinstalling all apps and thunderbird no problem with google-chrome or chromium this time
so had no idea what was wrong but the clean install appears to fix it and also the speed of the install of deep-plasma was incredible 15 minutes from clearing all hard drives and partitioning sda and install os to reboot i am as happy as a pig in ■■■■■
This is a guide after installing deep-plasma (archlinux)
The very First thing I do after a clean install of archlinux is check the journalctl
In a terminal:
journalctl -p 0 -xb the number zero is for Emergency and needs fixing, if possible
journalctl -p 1 -xb the number one is for Alert and should be fixed, if possible
journalctl -p 2 -xb the number two is for Critical and should be fixed, if possible
journalctl -p 3 -xb the number three is for Error and should be investigated for a possible fix
There are more per this but these are the important ones.
journalctl -p 4 -xb the number four will display Warnings, normally not a problem, but looking through may yield interesting info.
An internet search should get you on your way to fixing most of the problems found in the journal
Ideally you want a clean
journalctl -p 3 -xb if possible.
Another place to look through is
dmesg some errors maybe found in here that was never shown in the above, again a quick internet search should give you more info and a possible fix.
Other useful commands:
sudo systemctl --failed what services have failed, if any
systemd-analyze blame check for causing slow boot up
systemd-analyze the time it took to boot up
After going through all the above and fixing any errors / bugs etc I then move on to installing drivers etc, checking with
journalctl -p 3 -xb in between installing them. Software is my next stage and then tweaking my system for optimal performance.
Another thing to do is
journalctl -p 3 -xb just before you shut down after various tasks, that should give you any software bugs, if any.
This is what I do straight after installing on any system, assuming it boots, that's another subject for another day
thanks for that ant that is really helpful
heres what i get
grumpy@archplasma ~]$ journalctl -p 3 -xb

the only thing is watchdog will look it up later
thanks once again

well after all the problems with watchdog I had to reinstall deep-plasme now that dhcpd problem is back and it wont mask for some reason any ideas
well I went looking some more and found another link you guys sent me inserted it and fixed the problem all good now
If your having to reinstall deep-plasma, maybe you should go back to Manjaro?!?
Watchdog shouldn't cause a reinstall...
i couldnt get watchdog to start it was causing problems with the manjaro install so I reinstalled deep -plasma now its all ok again I wont fiddle with watchdog it gives me a headache
@ant well the install was flawless Is that the Architect installer that Carl Duff made sure looks like it it does a fine job.
Just had little nicks and nacks to do like bluetooth and pulseaudio but that's fine it is a minimal install after all not for new users.
Over all a nice minimal install that can be converted to any Arch flavour.
If only systemd could match Artix openrc on ram usage both arch based, Its creeping up on every systemd update.
It is, its very simple and fast installer
Can you explain? I can add whatever is needed in the next ISO. I don't use bluetooth and audio was fine for me and other testers.
I'd never recommend installing more than 1 DE on any install.
A post was split to a new topic: bear wallpaper
Its just sudo systemctl enable bluetooth reboot , if you want it right away
sudo systemctl start bluetooth and install pulseaudio-bluetooth nothing much then bluetooth works fine well here it does anyway.
No what I mean the hard work is done so for example you can install mate remove the existing.
And to be honest I only installed deep-plasma to satisfy curiosity i'm a Arch user since 2005 I just love to see what other can do with Arch.
Thanks for that, I never added the systemctl enable bluetooth to the iso, I like to keep services to a minimal , so I'll leave it as is not everybody has bluetooth.
Oh I see,
Yeah I made it because I like the deepin desktop but as you know, deepin is getting very buggy of late, I also have an archdeepin with the same installer, but I don't think I'll be releasing another ISO until its got its act together
Thanks for trying it, let me know how it goes
