  1. why , i boot from hardisk the archiso ,the root password isnt ArchLinux.the arch password isnt arch?

    • @mmzcaxe
      I wouldn’t know why that would happen in less overlay is not copyed over to hard drive. That wouldn’t happen cause you would have had that problem before installing to hard drive.

  2. I am still experiencing the same problem that I had in the previous version:

    :: Synchronizing package databases…
    archlinuxfr is up to date
    archiso-live is up to date
    core is up to date
    extra is up to date
    community is up to date
    :: Starting full system upgrade…
    looking for inter-conflicts…
    :: xf86-video-apm conflicts with xorg-server-catalyst-maximize-fix. Remove xorg-server-catalyst-maximize-fix? [Y/n]

    Anyway to solve the problem?

      You may have no choice but to to remove xorg-server-catalyst-maximize-fix. Problem being you will have kill X server and do this in a virtual console. I don’t know what will happen if you do it with xorg-server running. You going to have look things up on or man pacman in shell. I’m sorry but I don’t for sure what will fix it or hose your system up more.

      You could try:
      pacman -Sf xorg-server
      say yes to uninstalling xorg-server-catalyst-maximize-fix
      pacman -Syu

      Then logout then log back in. This should now have everything setup.
      PS This may hose your os you may have to do a reinstall. Backup everything you don’t want lose. Use at your own risk.

  3. Big mess right now. It did not work…also it is asking for the new pacman to be installed and there is no way to do this.

    I am pulling my hair right now.



  4. …just found out about the new Arch Linux version to come out this weekend. Good relief…

  5. Just installed the 20090801 version. Tried to run pacman -Syu and got an error:

    :: Starting full system upgrade…
    resolving dependencies…
    looking for inter-conflicts…
    error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
    :: shaman: requires pacman<3.3

    Is there a new version of shaman coming out that will not require a pacman < 3.3? I assume that I need not worry about an update to this release now but I assume that I will need to be able to run pacman sometime soon. I won't be using shaman anyway since pacman is so easy to run that having a GUI version is overkill that I can do without but apparently I need to have it there for pacman to run at all.

      The bug with 20090801 is that there were so may major release right after it. This cause some of the conflicts with updating. Shaman just doesn’t want to be update cause it conflicts with pacman 3.3.0. xorg-server-catalyst-maximize-fix just cause problems with updating to the newer xorg-server. The newer iso fixes these bugs.
