When I run "pacman -S xfree86", I get errors about not being able to "get filesize" and "failed to download" several of the files (like fontconfig). I aborted the operation with CTRL-C. I also tried cleaning my cache with "pacman -Sc".
I searched around the forum, and the solution seemed to be to rotate my pacman.conf entries. I'm not too good with nano or vim yet, so I thought I might just try again later tonight.
Should that work? / Is anyone else having mirror problems right now?
edit the things using keyboard
CRTL-O saves the file
but i think you have another problem, because if a mirror fails to run, pacman automatially goes to the next entry to try
The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
Do you have the newest copy of the dbs? Did you pacman -Sy yet? Without that you're trying to download an old version of stuff.
