Re: Stuck after successful install

post your entire /etc/rc.conf
as well as your /etc/modprobe.conf
maybe there is just a typo somewhere causing the snafu.

If you don't want to post them in the forum, you can pm me with the contents..

Re: Stuck after successful install

Thanks again, lucke.

And now, apologies to all who are reading as it seems i've wasted your time.  I had a phat typo in modprobe.  Called it 'etho vs 'eth0 . Sorry.

Now, on boot up, I noticed the previous message I saw, in red letters, as it rolled by to fast, is fixed, and I can immediately ping archlinux.org

But, I'm still going round in circles with pacman.  'pacman -Su' gives "cound not open sync database: extra       have you used --refresh yet?"

'pacman --refresh' doesn't say anything.

And finally,
'pacman -Sy'   

WHOOPS - something just happened.  Looks like actual pacman operation.  Cool.

Time for me to review and think.  If there is another problem, I think it will be under a new Subject.

Once again, I thank you all for your kind help!

John Schuster


Thanks All,

Re: Stuck after successful install

what you want is
pacman -Syu
that updates and synchs with the current stuff.

enjoy your arch now that you are workin'

Re: Stuck after successful install

No questions here - just a progress report.

Have run pacman several times and am now in the middle of a 90Meg sync.

THIS IS AMAZING.

I do this type of stuff for a living on another OS.

Ten checks, 20 upgrades, another 20 upgrades - cant read and type that fast!!

Anyway - no need to answer, I'm gonna go try to get a GUI up.

Thanks all again!
