Cannot install other packages from Current CD, pls help.

Hi, I have just installed Arch, base system only. Now my system in running and I want to add more packages from Current Cd.

I follow the instruction in Current CD and Arch intstallation guide.

I mount my cdrom to /mnt/cdrom and add Server = file:///mnt/cdrom to /etc/pacman.conf

I run pacman -Sy or pacman - Xorg. Pacman looked for FTP location and then Cdrom, but it failed to do anything.

I also tried [cd] Server = file:///mnt/cdrom/arch/pkg but it failed as well.

If I use Pacman -A <package name> , package is installed succesfully.

Please help, I don't know what went wrong.  Many thanks.

Re: Cannot install other packages from Current CD, pls help.

you need this line to be the first one after [current] in pacman.conf

Server = file:///mnt/cdrom/arch/pkg

you need to make sure that in /mnt/cdrom/arch/pkg there is a file called "current.db.tar.gz". If it is not, fix the path
