[Fixed]Arch install exiting error

Arch install not working on my computer i have tried to install via archinstall in past worked reinstalled didn't work fixed it and reinstalling again due to storage(ran out) and doesn't work and prompt me with this. I'm trying to get swayWM, the graphic drivers are set to AMDA, mirrors are US. My flash drive when first ran the ISO says "Arch Linux 6.4.7-arch1-1 (tty1)" is this the problem?

If you need more info let me know I don't usually ask for anything so I don't know how to approach this problem

Re: [Fixed]Arch install exiting error

What doesn't work, you didn't mention which error message you got? Do you get any log in /var/log/archinstall.log ? FWIW if you have that old of an ISO you probably should update the ISO and use a more current installation media.

Re: [Fixed]Arch install exiting error

Try again with the current ISO image.

If it still doesn't work please share the archinstall logs.

I don't own another computer to update the flashdrive though

Re: [Fixed]Arch install exiting error

Please don't full quote unnecessarily, it degrades the readability of the thread.

The flashdrive can be updated from the live environment, which is run in RAM by default, leaving the stick free to be written.

Re: [Fixed]Arch install exiting error

So I did `pacman -Syu` to update (assuming that's all I need to do, I don't know a lot) but it asks do I want ``dbus-broker-units`` or ``dbus-daemon-units`` I chose the first as default. Lists a bunch of applications, Terminal lists total download size is 717.71 Mib, Total install size 1726.54 Mib, Net upgrade 182 Mib. I choose yes and receive ``Error: Partition / too full: 187170 blocks needed, 63117 blocks free
error: failed to commit transaction (not enough free disk space)
Error occurred, no packages were updated``

That is not what I meant. Sorry for the confusion.

Download the new ISO image and write that to the flashdrive.

Re: [Fixed]Arch install exiting error

I'm just gonna be honest so I don't screw my laptop more, I have used Linux for daily things & trying to self teach programming for ~1 year with little to no problems and barley firmilarize myself with the terminal commands other than basic bash if that helps explain how much i dont know. So I'm just gonna say I have 0 clue on how to do this if there is a command to do so. Not trying to make this more difficult but yeah

Re: [Fixed]Arch install exiting error

Well we have a command to download the image:

wget https://geo.mirror.pkgbuild.com/iso/2024.05.01/archlinux-x86_64.iso

I am presuming the ISO sets enough storage to hold the image, use this command if that is not the case:

mount -o remount,size=2G /run/archiso/cowspace

Then follow https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/USB_fl … _utilities to write the image to the flashdrive.

Re: [Fixed]Arch install exiting error

My apologies, use this instead:

curl https://geo.mirror.pkgbuild.com/iso/2024.05.01/archlinux-x86_64.iso -o arch.iso

And check my last post again, the mount command was originally wrong.

Re: [Fixed]Arch install exiting error

No. Just run the (modified) mount command to make some extra space. I've tested this in QEMU while waiting for your replies, it does work.
