I´m pietro and I´m a newbie in ArchLinux...
Yesterday I try to install ArchLinux on my computer (Pentium II 233Mhz) with FTP installation, apparently all is correct in the installation. But when I try to enter in my new system... If I use initrd26-full.img for the boot I have this error:
Loading USB Subsystem (waiting 5 seconds for device to settle) (cut) type Direct-Access sd 2:0:0:2: Attached scsi removable disk sdc sd 2:0:0:2: Attached scsi generic sg2 type 0 Vendor: Generic Model: STORAGE DEVICE Rev:9317 Type Direct-Access sd 2:0:0:3: Attached scsi removable disk sdd sd 2:0:0:3: Attached scsi generic sg3 type 0 attempt to access beyond end of device hda3: rw=0, want=4, limit=2 Ext2-fs: unable to read superblock mount: Mouting /dev/root on new_root failed: Invalid argoment pivot_root: pivot_root: no such file or directory unmount: /initrd: no such file or directory unmount: /initrd: no such file or directory /linuxrc:527:/sbin/busybox: Not found Freeing unused kernel memory 252k freed BusyBox v1.01 (2006.03.10-22:56+0000) Build-in shell (ash) Enter ´help´ for a list of build-in commands /bin/sh: can´t access tty: job control turned off #
If I use initrd26.img after SGI XFS Quota Management subsystem I have this error:

My /boot/grub/menu.list is:
title Arch Linux root (hd0,1) kernel /boot/vmlinuz26 root=/dev/discs/disc0/port2 ro initrd /boot/initrd26.img or /boot/initrd26-full.img boot
In root I have (hd0,1) because in (hd0,0) I have Windows...
So, what can I do?
Where do I wrong?
Thank a lot you for your help!
You need to change this:
Thank you a lot!
Now it´s ok!!!
but I have an other problem...
I installed only base package. Now I would like to install fluxbox
But when I update the package I have:
# pacman -Sy :: Synchronizing package databases... gethostbyname: Resource temporarily unavailable error: cannot connect to ftp://ftp.archlinux.org gethostbyname: Resource temporarily unavailable error: cannot connect to ftp://ftp.nethat.com ecc... gethostbyname: Resource temporarily unavailable error: cannot connect to mirror.pacific.net.au gethostbyname: Resource temporarily unavailable error: cannot connect to cle.linux.org.tw failed to synchronize extra error: could not open sync database: extra have you used --refresh yet? #
Probably the connection setting is wrong, but is strange bacause when I have installed ArchLinux I use my connection to download all the base packages...
where I can check my connections setting?
Thank you a lot for your help!!!
How do you connect to the internet (cable, DSL, use a router/switch) ?
Post your /etc/rc.conf
Sorry I forgot to said the main info I have a LAN
my rc.conf is:
LOCALE="it_IT.utf8" HARDWARECLOCK="localtime" TIMEZONE="Stockholm/Europe" KEYMAP="se" CONSOLEFONT= CONSOLEMAP= USECOLOR="yes" MOD_AUTOLOAD="yes" MOD_BLACKLIST=() MODULES=() USELVM="no" HOSTNAME="zebian" lo="lo 130.XXX.XXX.XXX" eth0="eth0 130.XXX.XXX.XXX netmask 255.255.XXX.XXX broadcast 130.240.X.X" INTERFACES=(lo eth0) gateway="default gw 130.240.XXX.XXX" ROUTES=(!gateway) DAEMONS=(syslog-ng !hotplug !pcmcia network netfs crond)
but I don´t understand where I have to put my IP in lo="lo my.ip.x.x" or in eth0 my.ip.x.x?
and where the DNS?
Thank you again!
There are comments in the default rc.conf (and there's no need to remove them, btw) and the relevant ones here are as follows:
# Routes to start at boot-up (in this order) # Declare each route then list in ROUTES # - prefix an entry in ROUTES with a ! to disable it
Sorry - completely missed your lo interface - it should look like this (again, it's in the default version):
DNS goes in /etc/resolv.conf.
look for : "etho=" and edit like this:
eth0="eth0 192.168.1.21 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255" naturally, using your settings. This line assumes you are using static IPs. If you use DHCP then use:
If you use DHCP you are done, otherwise go to the line: "gateway=" and enter your gatway address like this:
gateway="default gw 192.168.1.1"
Again here you are using your settings.
And looks like you know where to put your DNS entris, so you are done.
Hope this helps.
