FTP kernel install fails :(

Ok, I'm using the 0.7 beta 1 ISO. I like to do the ftp install (easy update). Everything went fine until the kernel install. Here, it said something realted to a temp directory not being found, and then it would tell me the kernel failed. If I do a CD install it works, but then all the filesystems die after reboot. NOTE: this is my 9th arch install, so I'm pretty sure I know what I'm doing.

Re: FTP kernel install fails :(

i just submitted a bug report on this issue.  To correct it just create "/mnt/tmp" directory and you will be able to complete the install.

Re: FTP kernel install fails :(

empty conf files are usually a result of not properly completing the partition creation/mounting section or backstepping at some point during the install (by backstepping i me going back to correct/do something).

your only recourse is to restart the install process from scratch.

Or not editing the config files (even if editing just means opening them, saving, then quiting).

i understand that this is a really-straith-forward-installer, but this is a weakness of it: doing something in a chain and failing at step 11 means, that you have to repeat 10 steps to correct it :-(

Re: FTP kernel install fails :(

hmm, apparently, almost all of the programs in the base need a /tmp folder(not surprising), got to keep that in mind next time  wink

Re: FTP kernel install fails :(

This is fixed in pacman 2.9.  FTP installs should work again.

Re: FTP kernel install fails :(

I mean, they were empty when I went to edit them from the arch menu system. I will try again tonight.

No, the partitioning was just peachy.
