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 ...

First of all, using /dev identifiers for these purposes is generally a BadIdea™ since the disk letter can change (if you have more than one disk). See the Arch wiki entry on persistent block device naming. Second, Gummiboot is a dead project and while it is still an option to use it, you should consider moving to systemd-bootd (which is actually just ...

When you did the ls -il /usr/bin, you were listing file names and matching inode numbers. In this context, it's probably best to think of "file name" as separate from "inode", and to think of the inode as the file. The "inode" is typically an on-disk data structure containing metadata (permissons, ownership, creation time, access time, etc) and the disk ...

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 ...

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'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.

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.
