  1. Can this livecd be installed? I’m interested because it has KDE 4.2 on it. If it can be installed then to update it can I just use pacman directly?

    • Yes you can install to hard drive. There is a installer in menu->system tools called Install Arch LInux. This install will be a normal install so pacman can be used directly.

      Here are a few tips to help:

      1. use shell to get gparted root access if you have to make partitions. DON”T USE GPARTED THOUGH THE INSTALLER. You can use sudo to get gparted root access.

      2. After that do sudo in shell. (This cause doesn’t ask for root password though menu.) You can skip ahead to ‘Select Install Partition”. You should be ok from there on.

      I hope this helps.

      PS. You will have to added session=kde to boot line in grub’s menu.lst file. This is so after the install it will boot into kde and not lxde.

  2. I did experience lots of problems trying to run this CD under VirtualBox at Ubuntu.

  3. Where can i download a Archlinux gnome live cd?

  4. i want to install the cd from the hardisk ,how should i do ?

  5. Hi man,

    nice LiveCD. However, i couldnt start any of the Desktops except for the “Safe../Vbox”. I tried Virtualbox, Vmware and LiveCD on my amd64 with atiX1300.
    The error is always: error opening display.
    I´m not sure if u can reproduce these errors. Maybe u have an idea.

  6. i put into 1gb pendrive but it just start on read-only mode, a tried to remount ro mode but fails

  7. s/ro/rw/

  8. i dont have a cdrom ,how can i install arch-live from hardisk

  9. I couldn’t boot this CD. It always stop before getting into X. None of GUI didn’t start properly. There even was no error massage, everything simply stop, no more loading.

    • Can you link me to a screen shot of it in virtualbox? Also I need to know what menu option you used because virtualbox will only work with failsafe/vbox option. This is because virtualbox doesn’t support videoconfig script. Failsafe doesn’t use it.
