Each USB Flash card - same thing .... partition begins after end of disk ..... wonderful ....
I must have asked it to put it after the end of disk .... NOT
These older Text Based Systems seem not to want to install to USB ....
Why is that .... ?
I do not trust the partitioner ..... on USB's .....
spent 3 hours almost ....
Similar results .... either it screws the partition tables up
or it does not recognize that a USB is there to format.
Gets a tad annoying after the 6th attempt ....
Already had to rescue my Terra Drive from what appeared to be
every partition unusable ....
( removed the Arch install and deleted its partition - all was well again )
Anybody reading this .... only applies on USB HDDs ....
Arch works fine on the Main Drive once installed
I will try ArchBang ..... as the Arch normal install does not seem to want to run
on my 1 terra USB Drive ..... booting from a Celeron 3000 machine with 512 Meg Ram.
Problem appears to be the BIOS not seeing the USB drive at boot up for the Arch
Installer ...... see if I get the same problems here ......
If not then I will get used to using Arch before trying to run .......
I will learn to crawl a little first
I found this .....
and the bits I think I need are below ......
If you are using a USB Drive then goto /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and scroll below and at the end of HOOKS put “usb”. Save and exit.
Select /etc/resolv.conf and set your DNS address. I would suggest use openDNS. Put these first:
and then your own DNS address. Save and exit.
Now in /etc/hosts change the “localhost” to the hostname you set in /etc/rc.conf and save and exit.
Goto /etc/locale.gen and select your locale by uncommenting them and exit.
Now set your root password.
