Re: arch Linux install / unresolved skipping target: failures

You seem to have missed 2 steps :

update the system clock
Select the mirrors

Where did you download the install iso from and which version is it ?


Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

How did you wipe your drive in the first place? Could you post the commands you used?
