im a new arch user (well trying to be) and im having a biit of a problem.
it took me many trys to install arch and have everything work. I did a FTP install of the base system. i have succesfully installed xorg but now i cannot seem to install any other packages! Every single time i try any package using pacman i get file currupt after its downloaded. i m trying to get gnome 2.10 here is what i used:
pacman -S gnome-extra
i also tried just plain gnome and many other programs but like i said it keeps on saying that the packages are currupt.
i dont know whats wrong but like i said every single package is currupt now and wont install. so any help would be good. however, dont expect me too know too much about linux i have been an Ubuntu and SuSE user for awhile...so i dont really know linux! :-)
i also just tried
pacman -Sy pacman
to check if maybe my system wasnt up to date but still having the file currupt problems
figured it out. it was pretty simple!
for somereason when i read throught the pacman man pages i thought
cleaned the cache but then i realized the only capitals are commands. so then i did a help on the -S command and found out that to clean all cache its -Scc
once i executed this i was quickly able to install gnome with out a problem.
