I've heard great things about archlinux, and my ubuntu install was getting mucked up with all the alphas i was installing through means other than apt (lols! apt!). So I decided to have a shot at installing it last night. I grabbed the 2007.08.1 BASE iso, burnt it, yes i checked the md5sum.
Installation went fine up until I said "Install packages": it came back with the following:
error: 'acl': not found in sync db
Yes, acl is the first package on the list, and yes, unselecting it causes the same error with the next package on the list.
I made sure to say DONE and not cancel when partitioning & setting mountpoints, and i could write to /mnt fine from TTY2, so I don't have a clue what the problem is. I tried FTP install, then found out about the repo change.
Any ideas? TIA for any help.
ise: Thanks, I'll try the release candidate FTP version. I figure if I get base, I'll have to pacman -Syu and download the latest versions anyway.
Thanks, I just installed successfully with the RC FTP install ISO
