Sadly, the AUR packages have been very broken for some time. The easiest way to do it is just to install cabal-install and then install pandoc in your home directory with (as non-root): cabal update cabal install pandoc Then you end up with pandoc in ~/.cabal/bin/pandoc. It would be great if someone fixes the AUR packages, but until then, using cabal to ...

/etc/systemd/system is where you put your scripts, pacman puts package scripts in /usr/lib/systemd/system. Issuing systemctl enable foo.service creates symlinks from /usr to /etc. See the Unit Load Path section of man systemd.unit(5) for more detail.

I've written 3, one for ntpd, one for a second, static ethernet card, and one for running p0f, the passive OS identifer. I put them all in /etc/systemd/system. Looks like I could maybe let systemd handle the NTP stuff, but I don't think I want to rely on it that much.

Have you googled "arch linux install" yet? The first link you should see, the Arch Linux Installation guide (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_guide), is what you are looking for. The is also a much more explanatory beginner's guide (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners%27_guide). Unlike the Debian-installer, the menu-based thing ...

I installed the linux-lts package as suggested by @mikeserv from chroot and I set it as the default boot option from the grub configuration. This way I could boot nicely into linux 3.14 and complete the installation process. The vanilla linux kernel is installed alongside with the LTS version so using the "advanced options" from the grub menu I could still ...

As it was already mentioned in the comment, by default the target triplet is generated by config.guess script. It's logic is fairly simple. First it uses uname to get some basic system information: UNAME_MACHINE=`(uname -m) 2>/dev/null` || UNAME_MACHINE=unknown UNAME_RELEASE=`(uname -r) 2>/dev/null` || UNAME_RELEASE=unknown UNAME_SYSTEM=`(uname -s) ...

You are confusing a couple different concepts here. base is a package group. It's what many consider to be the “default” package set for an Arch Linux install (and many of the rest of Arch will assume that you have all of the packages in base installed—so this isn't really an incorrect assertion). On the other hand, core, extra and community are ...

A quick search shows that there a lot of people with this error. Apparently, add-ons with poor code can cause a lot of trouble for the browser and Xorg. Here are a couple of solutions that I can think of right now. Start Chromium with the add-ons disabled and see if the issue is resolved. Uninstall Chromium and make sure to delete its data (cache, ...

You have to reorder the iptables rules. You can't connect to your sshd because the rules are checked in line for line. And you already told iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset = reject ALL tcp traffic. Even you later tell him to accept connections to port 5000 it doesn't matter - you already rejected those connections. So when you ...

I see: mounting '/dev/sda8' on real root Shouldn't you have an entry in your fstab for /dev/sd8 for the / directory. I see all your other mount points other than your actual root.

Home partition is not required for system to be operational. However, many programs store configuration files in home directory. This might be the problem you are encountering. In this case, the simplest solution would be to use backup(which each user should have). If you don't have backup for some reason, you can resort to reconstructing crucial files(it ...

Although this question was answered in a comment, I wanted to clarify what is going on so you can understand this issue in the future. vmlinuz is the name of the Linux kernel executable. If this file is corrupted, there is no way you will be able to boot the Linux kernel, making an operating system impossible to use. (Programs are useless without a kernel, ...

Assuming your output is in a file foo.txt, at the command line, run grep '^http' foo.txt | sed 's/\.gz$//' > bar.txt This will save into bar.txt only the lines that start (^) with http (using grep), and will remove a trailing .gz (using sed).

Try Ctrl Alt Backspace - this is the standard combination to kill X server. Second option is to get away from X to a console using Ctrl Alt F1-F6, login into console and kill the hanging process. If neither of the above work and you have ssh server running on this machine, you can try remote logging from another machine. Last resort is using the magic ...

You've run ifconfig to see the interface name(s), that's a good start. After that, check if the ethernet cable is plugged in and working: [root@splunge ~]# mii-tool enp3s8 enp3s8: negotiated 100baseTx-FD flow-control, link ok That's from a working Arch server. You can use mii-tool or ethtool to check the connection and cable. After you are certain the ...

Why not just chroot into your installation? chroot /home/containers/wheezy passwd root

Well, this is weird, I did what don_crissti said and ran 'gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme' which printed 'Adwaita' as expected. But after that, I ran 'gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme Arc-Darker which now works. After a restart, which I had already tried before. Thanks for helping

I have the same problem using Arch Linux + GNOME Shell 3.16. I also use the PyDev plugin in Eclipse Mars. I fixed the issue by enabling the option "Show vertical scrollbar?" in Window->Preferences->PyDev->Editor-> Overview Rule Minimap.

This is more of a virtual box question than Linux. Please check the virtual box documentation as they have some comments on why there could be some discrepancies (tldr: the clock is shared between the two computers). As suggested above, use ntp. Sudo apt-get install ntp. It doesn't require any configuration, only network access.

You need to install python-glade2 and python-gtk2 packages.
