Archiso-live 20090203 Release

NOTE: I added a faqs page to my pages widget on the right side of the page.

Changes since last release:

* Added copy2ram menu option. Its also working now. You need 1GB of ram to use it.

* Unetbootin has a desktop file now. Its also compiled from source and that save 3.3mb of space off livecd.

* Larchin and Gparted desktop files now used gksu so you can execute them in arch user account.

* Everything is updated has of 7:00PM EST on 20090203.

  1. Good news for me: typing “hwd -xa” when hitting the commandline after X failing at boot, gave me a valid xorg.conf to start the kde with startx.

  2. Recently tried archiso-live versions 20081207 and 20090112 on a ThinkPad R51 with integrated Intel grfx and found they would not boot into X Window. Error message ‘Parse error on line 176 of section Device in file /etc/X11/Xorg.conf’ “82852 is not a valid keyword in this section”. Iirc this appeared on trying startx at the prompt after X failed. Previous versions eg 20081019 ran OK on this machine. Purely by chance had only tried the more recent versions on another ThinkPad with 915 grfx where they boot OK. Any idea what is up here, and any workarounds for live CD use?

  3. When i try to install it gives me a mount error…

    “Tidying up failed, there may still be devices mounted”

    What to do??

  4. I login with root and it fix the error, but it came back at the moment of install grub. 😦

    How to fix that on this image?

    (I have a slow connection to download the new image)

    • @ VDIAS
      You have to unmount /boot folder for the installer to use grub. This is cause it needs /boot/grub folder in order to install grub.

  5. @Godane
    How to do that?

  6. It says “/boot: not mounted”

    And i still have the error

  7. Done!

    Finish install, and rebooted…

    But, it just boot to terminal like normal archlinux install cd…

    I thought that it would boot to gnome… 😦

    it didn´t install gnome?!?!?!?

    • Type startx if your in shell. It would also be best to know what error your getting that doesn’t work. You could have videoconfig script problem or something that i don’t know about.

  8. Fatal server error:
    no screens found
    giving up
    xinit: no such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X server
    xinit: no such process (errno3): server error.

  9. Done…

    Needed to reconfig xorg.conf

  10. How to load gdm for default?
    How to clean all xfce “trash”?

  11. Why every time i restart my xorg.conf reset to default?VDI

    • My videoconfig autoconfig xorg.conf on every boot. You have to added noxconf to grub menu.lst. Could you only boot into failsafe mode on livecd? Cause otherwise this shouldn’t be cause you problems.
