I was using the Arch 0.7 beta2 build for a while and everything was, more or less, fine, I finally decited to update to 0.7 and now after I install I get a buch or "filesystem is read-only" errors and then it frezes when starting hotplug, I love Arch, the philosophy is what I have been looking for, I hope someone can help, Even Gentoo can't muster the speed!
To update your system, you don't need to reintall with the 0.7 CD. Just do a
and you'll get the up-to-date pkg.
EDIT: If your system is messed up, try reinstalling with the beta2 CD.
So no one can help me? If anyone can think of what I might be doing wrong in the install or a way to get a 0.7 beta CD? I have installed over 5 times, compiling my own kernel and using the stock kernel
you can start with disable hotplug,
you should also use udev instead if devfs, just edit your menu.lst(devfs=nomount) and your fstab to static naming scheme, (/dev/hdx),
if that not help it could be some form of apm/acpi trouble, there are afew kernel parameters you could try as a workaround for that, can't remeber them in my head right now but i think a popular one is "noapic",
arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
