12 thoughts on “Old, 32-bit ISO

      1. I mean that the live image worked but it wouldn’t install the OS to a new system. I don’t recall the exact problem but it was something the Antergos developers did on purpose, IIRC. I haven’t tried again for several months so I don’t know if it would work now. It’s to bad they dropped i686 support because I have several old 32-bit core duo laptops that work great for everyday tasks… snappy, even, with the Cinnamon desktop. I have an old image that I can copy to 32-bit systems and then configure grub2 to get them going and then point to the archlinux32 community repositories. However, a supported 32-bit community edition of Antergos would be fantastic because pure Arch is such a PITA to set up for newbie’s and non-geeks.

        1. Hmmm… I wasn’t aware that it was failing to install, so thank you so much for telling me about it! I too have an old 32-bit machine that I would love to install Antergos on, so I’ll certainly look into that. However, it’s getting rather close to crunch time for me as I am hoping to have a new ISO out for Antergos Deepin pretty soon here, so it may be awhile. I only have so much time, and I am already developing more than one spin off of Antergos for others. If I can find the necessary time through, I certainly will!

          Again, thank you.


  1. I don’t have the know-how or time, but may I suggest that someone please release a community edition of Antergos live install iso that is based on and points to the new community repositories that are found on the archlinux32.org community spin.

      1. Just curious if you had an opportunity to look into an updated community 32-bit edition of Antergos that uses the archlinux32.org repositories? As mentioned before, old 32-bit installs of Antergos convert perfectly just by changing the repositories to point to theirs and running pacman -Syuu as per the instructions on their website. I’m tying this now from a 32-bit core due Antergos installation that has been converted and everything remains lightening fast. They have even kept Firefox and Chromium binaries current up to the latest versions and I haven’t had any problems with them. The only problem I had was with an update to the linux-zen kernel which got broken so I just downgraded to the previous kernel by booting to the standard kernel and downgrading linux-zen back to the prior version.

        1. To avoid confusion, Alben Roland is my real name and Charlie Miller was the handle I was using as those are the names of my two dogs. For some reason, I didn’t notice that I was posting under my real name this last time.

  2. Hi there! I’m sorry, but I haven’t really had the time. Ironically, I’ve actually branched off from Antergos and started my own distro, Reborn OS! I’ve just finished fixing most of the kinks in the Reborn ISO, so I think I’ll start looking into the creation of a 32-bit ISO for Reborn OS right now. If you are curious as to my progress, you can always reach me at my forum, https://rebornos.freeforums.net .

    Hope this helps, and thank you for your continued interest!


  3. I have never personally used Arch on 32 bit systems, so this project can only be made possible if you are willing to help me (mainly with configs and what packages to install). If you have the time, that would be great! If not, I completely understand.



    1. I am typing this on a 32-bit Antergos installation that changed the repositories to point to ones on the archlinux32.org site. The laptop is an old one with a core duo processor which is 32-bit only and 4GB or RAM of which only 3GB is accessible. It works very well. I use the linux-zen kernel and have zswap enabled which does wonders with lower memory machines. If you let me know how I can assist, I can try. My email is aroland@vjcinternational.com .
