Antergos: An Easy, Quick Way To Try Out Arch Linux
Written by Michael Larabel in Operating Systems on 24 June 2014. Page 2 of 2. 24 Comments

As quickly trying out a few different disk settings didn't solve this Antergos partition/file-system error, I switched over to the Antergos command-line based installer.

The Antergos command-line installer worked fine and offered the same options as the GUI-based alternative.

Those wishing to play around with this Arch-based distribution before installing it can proceed to use the Live environment, which worked fine in my brief testing of it prior to running the installation.

Overall, Antergos seems like a nice approach for those wishing to quickly and easily setup an Arch Linux environment. Stay tuned for my benchmarks against Antergos in the coming days. Have other benchmark requests? Let me know via Twitter. Test request priorities are given to Phoronix Premium members!
