So, I wanted to help a friend of mine to install Arch Linux on his iMac. We partitioned it beforehand, booted from CD and all went fine, but we failed setting up the internet connection.
has 100% packet loss. For reference, here is a image of his internet settings on Mac OS: http://ur1.ca/c41u5
Here is what we did:
ip link set eth0 up ip addr add 10.0.0.70/24 dev eth0 ip route add default via 10.0.0.138
We also edited /etc/resolv.conf:
nameserver 126.96.36.199 nameserver 188.8.131.52 search example.com
We tried many times, but it never worked. I am not there right now so I can't test anything ATM. Also, I'm writing this from my memory, so I can't say _exactly_ what the outputs were, sorry for that.
I hope you can help me, I know it's not that much information.
Thanks in advance!

try doing these pings :
ping 127.0.0.1 ping 10.0.0.70 ping 10.0.0.138 ping 184.108.40.206 ping 220.127.116.11
If any of these fail, you got a network/connection problem .
Incase they are all successfull, continue with these and post the output:
dig localhost dig <your hostname> dig www.google.com
Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them
