I want to try arch64 out so I can help you building packages and keeping up to system up to date.
So far I tried the ISO with no success. It was not possible to load the package list. Going the other way with a live cd I don´t know what are the base packages because there is only current/extra/community on the mirrors.
And I have another problem: I need a kernel supporting my onboard NIC. I need the uli526x modul which is in kernel 2.6.14. - If I could manage that - is the ftp-install already possible?
So what´s the best way to get a working arch64 system at the moment :?:
Probably that's the best way. I don't know if it works right now, arch64.org is down and they've been working on that instead of the packages and installer.
I was actually looking for another 64 bit distro today, I'm tired of 32, but arch64 isn't really mainstream useable at the moment. Gentoo 64 pissed me off when I didn't even have a base system after 1.5 hours and they asked me to compile a kernel. ;-) downloading suse right now.... :oops:
I'm testing Kanotix64 .... done hdinstall seems ok....
But it makes sad that I cannot use Arch64 :cry:
try sorting your mirrors see if that helps .....
