  1. Where can i find the dect software and kismet?

  2. I’m having many issues trying to install chaox to my HDD, I’ve installed Arch Linux many times so I wouldn’t class my self as a inexperienced user but here goes:

    When I get to the package installation part it always fails saying that their are many conflicts. One that I can remember being the init scripts conflicting with chaox-init scripts.

    Also when trying a system update with ‘pacman -Syu’ I again receive numerous file conflicts (network manager with libnetworkmanger, gcc with choax-gcc).
    I’ve tried replacing then, and leaving them be, but to no avail.

    I’m pretty sure this is not an error on my part, tried it with two computers and it still fails.

    Does anyone, please, have any advice.

    • You are right, it is a bug in our installer. I’ll try to fix it and will report back in the evening. The next release will have a installer that will work completely without getting packages from the internet, so these problems shouldn’t turn up again.

  3. I’m using the latest version (I believe) Chaox-17-04-2009.iso.

    My setup if it helps:
    I have Arch installed on a separate partition (/ is sda2) and I’m trying to install Chaox ‘/’ to sda3, with a separate boot partition on sda1.

    I’ll try re-installing again now and post a more detailed output.

    • You are not: chaox-2009.7.iso is the latest version and also the only supported one. Sorry for the hassle, but the installer isn’t supported anymore on older versions. You can get the latest version from

      • Ah sorry my mistake; I had both versions in my ‘OS ISO’ folder and thought I was using the latest.

        All working great now, thank you, using 2009-7, installed perfectly and running smooth.

        Thanks for this great distro, keep up the good work.
