    Re: Pacman Issues

    ok first I suggest that you ask around on the arch linux forums, it is great. second, what does pacman -Sy give you?

    Re: Pacman Issues

    Hello


    I don't know what ISO you are using to install Arch but when I used the 2008-04 I had the same problem. When I use the 2008-03 Iso I don't have that problem.

    Re: Pacman Issues

    This is a bit older of an Arch guide that I used when I installed Archlinux-i686-2007.08-2.core.iso: http://www.raiden.net/?cat=2&aid=276&pid=7

    This page 7 has details about the pacman.d and the server list. Also, read the notes that pacman will print out for you, it usually has all of the new details of any changes for the .conf files that you will have to make.

    Read the whole guide (with pictures), and make sure you did all of your conf files correctly.

    Did you find the answer to this? I have the same problem.

    Followed the Beginners Guide exactly but pacman says "Connection timed out" no matter which mirror I choose.

    Do you have a working network connection? Can you ping google, for example?

    Re: Pacman Issues

    Sorry, I haven't read the entire thread. But have you tried:
    Code:
    pacman -Sy
    ??

    Dr Small, that's where I got snagged in the beginners guide, it says to update your system by typing pacman -Sy. It wouldn't connect so I tried skipping that part and installing libgl, xorg etc. but it says

    Code:
    error 'libgl': not found in sync db

    Re: Pacman Issues

    The first time I installed Arch, I remembered getting hung up on pacman. I'm not entirely sure if it's the same thing being referred to here, but I remember it had something to do with how I was following the beginner's guide. The guide's been updated since then, but try updating pacman using the archlinux.org server. The guide had me set my mirrorlist and then run a full-system update, but the version of pacman I had was outdated and didn't refer to /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist. I don't see how this would be a problem on a release-candidate version, but I figured I'd mention it to see if it helps.

    I got it working a while ago, and forgot to update this post.
    Turns out that in /etc/rc.conf the default gateway was set to 192.168.0.1 when it needed to be set to 192.168.1.1.
