EndeavourOS is an Arch-based distro that provides an Arch experience without the hassle of installing it manually for both x86_64 and ARM systems. After installation, you’re provided with a lightweight and almost barebones environment ready to be explored with your terminal, along with our home-built Welcome App as a powerful guide to help you along.
Go for the complete release notes of our latest release, Galileo Neo over here and if you are curious to start exploring, use the Magnet, Torrent link or select a mirror near you below to download the ISO.
The current ISO ships with
Xorg-server 21.1.11-1 (Xorg)
Linux kernel 6.7.1.arch1-1
Nvidia dkms 545.29.06-1
Download by Magnet link and BitTorrent
If you can spare the bytes, please leave the client open after your download is finished, so you can seed it back to others. A DHT-capable client is required, and a WebSeed-capable client is recommended for the fastest download speeds. Torrent client must be installed to use the Magnet button.
We are continuously looking for fresh eyes on our development. If you are interested in doing so and joining the team, visit our GitHub page.
Minimum system requirements
2.5 GB of RAM (offline installs)(1)
Dual Core Processor (64 bit, x86-64, amd64)
15 GB of Harddrive space
Installer still supports legacy Bios only systems, but it is recommended to run modern EFI (UEFI) systems not on legacy (CSM) mode.
Note: These are the absolute minimum requirements to use the operating system and be able to run the installer. Applications, options, games, etc. may need better specifications. Modern browsers alone often require around 2 GB of RAM to run smoothly.
(1) to be able to run online installs 4 GB or more are recommended.
