[SOLVED] Unable to download and ping after the system boot

As soon as I detach the live disk, the computer cannot connect to the internet

I'm using the latest version of Virtualbox and the latest version of Arch on a Windows 10 PC.

Here's the error for the ping www.example.com

And here's the error installing xfce4, xfce4-goodies, and lighdm together.

I also tried messing with the mirrors, to no avail

I also can't share the clipboard so pardon for the screenshots

And how did you configure your networking?

On the guest system. You have to configure the network. See the wiki.

I installed network manager and enabled it in systemctl

But now when I use AUR, it tells me it cannot resolve host aur.archlinux.org

At the same time, I'm connecting to the internet just fine

As a matter of fact, I'm posting from the installed arch system

Re: [SOLVED] Unable to download and ping after the system boot

pacman -S dhcpcd
dhcpcd
systemctl enable dhcpcd

Do those three lines just before you umount and reboot and you'll be good to go in your Winblows10 / VBox VM (when you reboot, sign in and test with ping -c3 google.com)

BTW, I have found a couple other problems with w10/vbox  All of a sudden, I can no longer have enable 3D Acceleration ticked in VBox Settings and once you remove that tick, then I have 'unghosted' VBoxSVGA which I need because VMSVGA never works. With VMSVGA the vm never boots - it just black screens to a blinking cursor as I remember and even a different tty won't help.
