First of all, using /dev identifiers for these purposes is generally a BadIdeaâ„¢ 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 ...

If you want to be supported by any contingent of the Arch Linux community, there are only two guides you can use to install Arch: The Beginners' Guide and The Official Installation Guide. Any other guide/script/tutorial used is not supported and never will be. Now then, that is not to say that you cannot use those scripts, but if you do, you are ...

The correct way to delete a package is pacman -R package-name. To delete everything, including modified configuration files and dependencies you may have pulled in with a tool such as yaourt or packer, run pacman -Rns package-name. In this respect, AUR packages are no different from native packages.

If it's standard for /dev/rtc0 to belong to the audio group in Arch, you could just add yourself to the audio group (using adduser; you'll need to log out and log back in for the change to be effective). Alternatively, you could add an ACL giving yourself access to the device (look up setfacl to see how to do this). Ideally you shouldn't need to access the ...

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 ...

Apparently, udev has changed the way it matches hardware in v220, which means that it was necessary to change keyboard:usb:v046DpC52B* to evdev:input:b0003v046Dp402D* (the b0003 is the bus-id of USB) What irritates me is that another product ID is now needed. Before v220, the ID C52B was used for all parts of the device (a multi-button mouse), however ...

I use some scripts to install Arch Linux sometimes. I wrote them, though, and I don't distribute them as I never bothered (nor particularly cared to bother) to harden them against all of the horrible things they might do to your computer in the event something went wrong. I imagine there are many out there like me - all of us selfishly hoarding our little ...

I recently tried just about every "Arch-based" distribution, feeling the same way you did. I wasted about as much time on each one of them as I would have setting up "the arch way." Save yourself the troubles that get installed by them and follow the guide. It'll be faster, leaner, and cleaner, especially since you've already done it before.

2 shots: 1. Perhaps login as root is denied (that's the default setting on many systems and it is pretty reasonable). Did you tried with a different user? 2. Did you try sshing with ssh -Y?

I can't duplicate your issue. sudo -E pacman -Syu with export http_proxy works for me. I would check your user and password is correct (I know it is silly but humour me). Test with curl or wget. If you can get one of those to work you update pacman.conf: XferCommand = /path/to/command %u If set, an external program will be used to download all ...

My problem was that I used '\' in the code. In linux it must be '/' , so to make the code portable the line must be: #include <avr/io.h>

I've solved. I looked the log: backup framebuffer data, that it means that it changes framebuffer. I've thinked: "The framebuffer doesn't work maybe?". So I have try to change framebuffer using this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Uvesafb and now it works. And I think this is also the only way, for ATI proprietary drivers, to really change TTY ...

ATI drivers are terrible on Linux. Try other driver versions, x and kernel too. Eventually it will work, but don't expect radeon to be stable at all. Everybody I know get continous X crashes or some artefacts, and performance is not better too.

I fixed it! Here are the commands I used this time: # parted /dev/sda (parted) mklabel msdos (parted) mkpart primary ext2 2MiB 2GiB (parted) mkpart primary ext4 2GiB 100% (parted) set 1 boot on (parted) q # mkfs.ext2 /dev/sda1 # cryptsetup --key-size 512 --hash sha512 --iter-time 5000 --use-random luksFormat /dev/sda2 # cryptsetup open --type luks ...

If you use systemd, there should be a way with a .mount unit and a mount script ! See man systedmd.unit and man systemd.mount ! But generally, you'd avoid using ntfs or any microsoft tech on linux because windows and linux just do not work the same way, and ntfs isn't as well supported as other filesystems. Plus, it's less performant

I think what you need is fbcondecor ! here : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fbsplash#Console_backgrounds Oh, and you do need a patchd kernel.

The 'documents' app in gnome is supposed to sync with online resources (google docs, ownCloud, oneDrive). I don't have 3.14, but in 3.10 the application is seriously slow and sucktastic. It's totally useless. https://help.gnome.org/users/gnome-documents/stable/
