it's been a while since I updated, and this came up today. Does anyone know how to skirt around it? I already said no to the control panel update but it still doesnt run

Heyyo, so the November 2017 BBQLinux ISO is quite out of date with some depreciated packages and web browsers won't launch at all for me until I was able to remove said depreciated packages that prevented a system upgrade which got the web browsers working again.

Also, minor bug but on the cinnamon desktop environment the preferred application for terminal is not set.

So I decided to try and take it upon myself to update the BBQiso and have made these changes:
https://github.com/ThEMarD/bbqiso/commits/master

but there's still these errors:

[bbqmkiso] INFO: Installing packages to 'work/x86_64/airootfs/'...

... and one can't simply remove gksu, otherwise this error pops up:

.... so I'm unsure in which direction it would be best to go for fixing the BBQiso.

This is strange. Android ROM building has been failing on hidl-gen stuff for about 3 weeks now, possibly longer. It began to look like BBQLinux got broken somehow since I simply could not determine why it failed. I did an experiment and set up a fresh installation of LinuxMint and Manjaro but experienced the same problem, so that ruled out BBQLinux itself but I'm still not clear what the problem is.

I have my build repositories on a Raid-0 array via the Linux 'md' driver and ccache storage on another also via the 'md' driver. XFS file system on both. I did another experiment where I attached an external (USB-3) 2TB disk, formatted it to XFS and copied one of the ROM projects to it via rsync and was able to complete the build. It was quite slow but it did succeed.

So, how do I go about isolating the problem? Any ideas are most welcome.

Kindly

Okay so updating my previous experience, did just one install this time which went through without any issues. So overall install went well. I may be not catching this,but, now I can't even open up Firefox? When I go into the packages app to look for a new browser I don't see any other browsers available. Well I guess it's time to start learning Pacman and do everything from terminal.
Overall experience thus far: I give it a 4.7 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for this distro.πŸ€™πŸ€™πŸ‘πŸ‘

I have to be 100% honest here when I say this, after 3 installs, gotten past 0 updates, nothing accomplished, trying for the past 7 hours to configure this properly to no avail. This is the worst experience I've ever had with any Linux distro. It sounds appealing with all the Android build tools,but, what's the use if nothing works properly. Firstly after install, that annoying live user is still installed. It should disappear after the first boot,but, you guys programmed it to stay.???? Then the update off the top, error lib32 gcc....???? Nothing opened up at all after a failed install. Wasted all these hours and I could've gotten a rom done by then. So I give it a πŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘ŽπŸ‘Ž. Back to Ubuntu where life is better and things actually work!

Extremely new to Arch.
When I perform the package updates, should I say yes to packages being replaced? I already said yes to them, but I want to make sure it was the right thing to do. I'm familiar with debian based distros, but this is my first distro based around Arch that I've ran
