pacman hangs on initial sysupgrade

this is my first Archlinux install.

i'm using the 0.7.2 base iso and after a successful install i'm trying a sysupgrade:

    pacman --sync --refresh --sysupgrade

this upgrades pacman first, then i have to issue the same command again.

the upgrade seems to work, until it gets to gcc, which hangs after 99%.   i simply control-c the job and start over, which picks back up and finishes the upgrade, but it seems weird.  i've tried this in vmware and on a physical machine with the same results, so it does not seem to be hardware related.

is there a known problem?

Re: pacman hangs on initial sysupgrade

I remember there have been such problems with bigger (=> longer) downloads (from ftp?) and some firewalls.

Re: pacman hangs on initial sysupgrade

all the bigger downloads are in fact hanging, so this must be related.  hopefully pacman will maintain the integrity of the upgrade.

Re: pacman hangs on initial sysupgrade

Don't worry about the integrity, it'll be alright.

You might try to unhash XferCommand (the one with wget) in /etc/pacman.conf and check whether it works any better.
