We would like to remind you that:

  • To create reliable installation media, it is important to follow the instructions.
  • Chakra implements a half-rolling model for the repositories, where all applications and KDE software fully roll. Expect newer versions of many of the above packages on your first update after installation.
  • Current Chakra users do not need to perform a new installation, updating your current installation will always provide you with all the latest versions of all our packages.
  • The Calamares installer does not yet support RAID and LVM installations.
  • There are limitations in detecting hybrid cards. So even if you choose to boot in non-free mode, you will still be using the free drivers. To workaround this install using the free drivers and then switch manually. For Nvidia cards, you can use bumblebee with the proprietary nvidia drivers or PRIME with nouveau.
