Re: ArchLinux 推廣教學起跑!

3. 4. solved

1. UTC is used, so it doesn't matter
2. xserver default is used.
5. ctrl + e. chromium.
6. vim .config/openbox
7. kernel.org is way faster than cle

Re: ArchLinux 推廣教學起跑!

I assume you are using 4xx or 5xx series card.
I cannot do anything at the moment; it is an upstream bug.

problem:
1. xorg uses nv by default, but nv only supports card before 2008-2009. so new fermi cards are not supported
2. to use newer cards, you have to use nouveau, which is not loaded.
3. if I load nouveau by adding config, people with intel and ati display cannot use March.

solution:
1. patch it myself. (I have to use arch repository to run archiso, so I cant)
2. request to patch xserver. (arch only provides vanilla packages, so it is not possible)
3. the only way: report upstream, which is what i am doing right now. I really hope it can be done before next release.
the patch itself has only one line though.

nvidia really screws its opensource driver.

Re: ArchLinux 推廣教學起跑!

tint2 disappear? can you post a screenshot? everything includes installing is tested by me.

it will show THIS WILL ERASE AND OVERWRITE YOUR /DEV/SDA.  IF YOU DO NOT WANT THIS PRESS CTRL+C WITHIN 10 SECONDS.
it just stops and makes sure that you really intend to install March. It will start running after 10 secs.

Re: ArchLinux 推廣教學起跑!

in my case, intel driver need option i915.modeset=1 & noapic when boot.
after that, fdisk ok but didn't copy files to disk...and show installed success at last.
