Re: 2007.05 Duke ISOs released, installation feedback

Could someone explain those changes to me? :roll:

- soundcards are now also ordered by hwdetect (the benefits smile )
- rsync has been added to installation environment
- selection to copy installation network setup to final installed system
- selection about keeping package cache during cd/ftp installation (wasn't this in setup long time ago?)
- selection of primary pacman sync server added (so i got a single SERVER in pacman.conf right after install now?)

Thanks in advance! 8)

Well... not really. There are still mirrors without the new torrents.

Yeah, probably it should.

Re: 2007.05 Duke ISOs released, installation feedback

Today I installed Duke on my machine, I mentioned two little bumps:

- Installation via ftp-iso (25MB) doesnt work. Downloading the packages from base doesn't start, but synchronising the package database with the mirrors (I tested it with different ones) works fine before.  There were no error message or something like this, it just happend nothing ... Anyway, I downloaded the base-isos and installed Duke with them. Works fine.

- While starting XFCE I run into problems with /tmp. By default, it is not writable for every user. Why? Of course, it is easy to fix, but in Voodoo there was no need for that, /tmp was writable for everyone. Is there any reason for this change or is it only a little bug?

Just for fun I'm installing Arch via the new ISO in VMWare, and I experience almost the same thing. I selected a mirror, and begun downloading the packages. But it doesn't say anything after ":: Retrieving packages from current...", however it DOES download the packages (as shown by ls /mnt/var/cache/pacman/pkg ).

That's possible, I didn't wait long enough. By Voodoo I was not used such a silent way of downloading the packages wink

Re: 2007.05 Duke ISOs released, installation feedback

I just tried the ftp iso -
Some things weird :

in my rc.conf : I had a space between eth0 and '=' like :

eth0 =dhcp

and in current, extra etc I had the adress of server selected via install without the "Server =" ...

Imagine my surprise when I rebooted and saw that eth0 no such device... and couldn't reach the internet...

Well, despite this, everything seems to be ok...

I am installing gnome , right now..

I concur with Fackamato and Gweg. I had the same problems with the ftp version.

Found the torrents which I'm currently seeding.
Uploaded them unchanged on linuxtracker.org with a description & nfo (from tpowa announce).
BTW, searching for Arch on piratebay (as well as meganova, mininova and torrentz) did not show any positive results, even when registered tracker is piratebay !?

Now you could replace the "Pending" word inside the box on the right tongue

Re: 2007.05 Duke ISOs released, installation feedback

one comment on the bug says, that the /tmp bug is solved, and with a ftp install there is no problem any more, so ive tried to do a net install, and the bug is still here. i cant do anything. i synced with the main archlinux server, but there are no fixes, what can i do?

It is fixed in pacman CVS, but no new pacman bugfix package is released yet.
It can be also worked around by chmodding in post_install() in filesystem.
I think the first one or both fixes will be released soon.

Re: 2007.05 Duke ISOs released, installation feedback

As a quick workaround install:

pacman -U http://www.archlinux.de/~pierre/packages/i686/filesystem-0.8-7.1-i686.pkg.tar.gz

or

pacman -U http://www.archlinux.de/~pierre/packages/x86_64/filesystem-0.8-7.1-x86_64.pkg.tar.gz

Yes, this is done intentionally.
It was removed because it is useless with rolling release system, but then added back as empty just for compatability with software that checks for its existance to know its running on Arch.
