I am at the point where I select all the base packages and trying to install. It would not let me install the selected packages. Something about zlib not being found.
So I tried a FTP installation, and the same thing happens. I tried another FTP server, and again!
How do I fix this?
I found a simular topic in Search dating 4 months back:
No one answered. Hopefully someone have a solution now. PLEASE help!!!
I've also got the same problem posted here yesterday.
Just tried the beta. Same thing. Cannot install selected packages.
In addition, it read the hda as sda. Other thing, while partitioning, it said that I have 7000 MB left for / or /home. My HDD has less than that in total. WTF?
Other distros have no problem detecting my hardware properly. None of my hardware is generic.
Any other ideas how to fix it?
I was expecting Arch to install smoothly since I heard some good things about it.
About the hda -> sda thing:
Can't really help you with the partitioning. Your HD is smaller than 7GB or what? I don't really understand what you mean. Also when I installed Arch it did not include a partitioning tool, I prepared my HD using gparted. Maybe the new ISOs have one though.
