Your installation of libvirtd needs to be configured to handle the vbox+ssh connection type. Details on how to do this are covered here, titled: VirtualBox hypervisor driver. There's a sample domain XML config that you'll need to load into libvirtd so that it knows how to talk to the VirtualBox VM. excerpt - sample config <domain type='vbox'> ...

That is because alsamixer activly sets its background colour to black. In terms of ANSI escape codes this means it sends the ^[[40m sequence. You can verify this by fiddling with its output: Run alsamixer while redirecting its output to a file: $ alsamixer > alsamixer.ansi Use Esc or Ctrl+C to exit. You can also use $ alsamixer | tee alsamixer.ansi ...

I think your best bet is probably to wrap a script (shell script for example) around pacman that takes care of setting things up. There's some details missing from your question, but I'm going to assume your repository is not accessible from the internet and only your local LAN but the software is licensed per user (rather than for your entire site) so you ...

Zsh -f makes the problem go away. I parsed the .zshrc file, and found it to be a setting that I'd kept in the process of moving to Arch - "export TERM=uxterm". Removed this line, and the problem was gone. Thank you for your help!

The Wiki's Wireless page .. You must have network from somewhere Ethernet I suppose as @HalosGhost mentioned, when in doubt read the wiki. You must be precise with systemd anyways and all CLI. If you have problems we need specifics and logs. Arch is very hands-on but you can do it if you try and want to. The documentation is there.

There is also $ openbox --restart Since it was not mentioned yet, I will do it. This will not restart X as well. Presumably --restart is "stronger" than --reconfigure.

The trick was to install the latest openssl-0.9.x version, apparently php-5.3 doesn't work with openssl-1.x one. Then: PHP_BUILD_CONFIGURE_OPTS=--with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl phpenv install 5.3.29 Also, it might be necessary to specify mysqli.default_socket = /run/mysqld/mysqld.sock in ~/.phpenv/versions/5.3.29/etc/php.ini. Otherwise, php says: PHP ...

Thank you Anthon for your answer above, it greatly contributed to solving my problem. It seems the solution to my issue was two parts. The entry in /etc/default/grub, for me should read: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="cryptdevice=/dev/sdb2:lvmpool root=/dev/mapper/lvmpool-root" To break down each entry: cryptdevice consists of the partition you applied ...

Your problem seems to be in the difference of :crypt as volume group for /dev/sdb2 and using lvmpool- as volumegroup name as parameter for root. GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="root=/dev/mapper/lvmpool-root cryptdevice=/dev/sdb2:crypt ro" The example here: cryptdevice=/dev/partition:MyStorage root=/dev/mapper/MyStorage-rootvol has matching :MyStorage and ...

It's partly just due to historical differences, but partly because different distributions are geared toward different kinds of users. Red Hat and Debian are aimed mainly at business environments that need tried-and-true, stable software; Ubuntu is aimed at people who want the latest-and-greatest versions of everything with a minimum of fuss; Arch and ...

Note that, unless you tell it not to via "--no-convert", localectl will set the X settings to be equivalent to the console settings if you are setting console keymap via set-keymap and will set console equivalent to the X settings if you are setting the X keymap via set-x11-keymap. See man localectl.

My laptop has none of these (it also has no battery currently), but it does have a "powercap" device. It seems this device is able to set restrictions on the user power. And it (naturally) can read the power draw in order to enforce them. The power draw can be found at the energy_uj file, i.e.: cat /sys/class/powercap/*/energy_uj It'll show the lecture ...

KDE works great for me. Using Arch for years. Im not familiar with yaourt anymore. In case try re-installing with pacman directly. $sudo pacman -Syyu kde and read in the wiki on kde. If your using gdm it should just work. Might have a minor tweak somewhere. Also read up on .xinitrc it should work fine. Perhaps after adjusting .xinitrc and using $startx ...

Arch Wiki doesn't recommend using Unetbooting for writing ISO on a flash drive. Please, use # dd bs=4M if=/path/to/archlinux.iso of=/dev/sdx && sync for performing this operation under existing Linux, or find other options here

You probably forgot to format your partitions first. Assuming /dev/sda is your hard drive (where you wish to install Arch) : $ fdisk /dev/sda [create your partitions using fdisk] More information about fdisk here. Then just use mkfs to format them all. Here are two examples creating ext4 filesystems. $ mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1 $ mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda2 $ # ... ...

This is not normal, it is clearly a KDE configuration problem. Unfortunately, most linux distributions doesn't works a lot configuring its KDE, practically that are only compiling that and uploading into their package archive without any deeper test. It is not in their main scope. :-( Although in most cases you can easy handle such problems. KDE is only a ...

I think you are confusing the ports system. You don't want to clone the entire AUR repo Im sure. So if your question is which file system I use ext4. Some like btrfs. There are others for encryption but stick with one of those for now.

For 2560x1440 you need an active DP to dual-link DVI adapter and a dual link DVI cable. Most likely you only had a passive DP to single-link DVI adapter.

First of all, I had to use another kernel, kernel-qemu that I found here.

To recompile glibc with custom DTV_SURPLUS and override the existing version: Copy /var/abs/core/glibc to another directory so you can write to it without being root, then cd to that directory. Use makepkg -o to download and extract the source code without building it(because we will edit the source code before building). Edit DTV_SURPLUS located in ...

The best way is subjective but there are a couple of them: Make your own ISO already containing the VBox modules for the included kernel. (See [1], [2], or [3].) This might generally be the preferred option if you can and if you're going to use it a lot, but if you're only going to use it once it might be considered a bit of a waste of time. Upload the ...

Question is old, but for anyone reading it: escape grave definekey top Insert readkey root definekey root Insert link grave This will effectively change C-t to the grave key. I don't know what the windows key is called. Don't remember where I got this, but it works.

Just an idea: sometimes when switching between wifi and ethernet (or back), it helps on my system to reset the corresponding service, as follows. Switch to wifi: sudo systemctl restart netctl-auto@wlp2s0.service Switch to ethernet: sudo systemctl restart dhcpcd@enp0s25.service

Debootstrap is in aur/debootstrap package. After installation process you will have to make a symlink in /usr/bin: cd /usr/bin ; ln -sf debootstrap qemu-debootstrap After that do what ouzmoutous suggests. Anyway I always advise to use downloaded templates. HTH

I wouldn't go through cups: CUPS is very problematic about RAW devices. It's much easier to do it like so: #!/bin/bash cu -E `` /dev/ttyAMA0 < $1 (I can't remember for sure if you are requiring back-ticks (``) or single-quotes (''). cu calls up the modem. [-E ``] sets the escape sequence to null. < redirects $1 to the modem over the serial line. ...

Just create a configuration file that unsets that parameter. mkdir -p /etc/systemd/system/systemd-timesyncd.service.d echo -e "[Unit]\nConditionVirtualization=" > /etc/systemd/system/systemd-timesyncd.service.d/allow_virt.conf systemctl daemon-reload systemctl start systemd-timesyncd.service This technique is described in the systemd.unit man page: ...

Not much to go on here. I'll take pot shots. Do you have the right drivers for your hardware? Wifi and ethernet are two differant things. What exactly do you mean by unstable? Do you use dhcpcd for ethernet? https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network#Troubleshooting

I would enable this script so that it's verbose and writes its output to a file so that you can more easily ascertain what's tripping it up.

Yes basically the howto's from Ubuntu or Mint are the same way to go in Arch. Arch is more of a hands on development system. Not really intended as a stable release for a Kiosk type account. But it can be done. Get your chmod commands right and adduser and passwd settings right and test them.

When you say windows does not load youre not being real specific. Syslinux is more manually set and can be picky. You might want to install grub instead and run os-prober. Easier for the newer user. You might have a problem where the windows repair disk or install disk needs to repair something as Windows can be very finicky especially where its file system ...

Yes you cannot use gparted from within a system to resize. There are filesystems that you can resize on the fly like btrfs. You can copy your system to disk and copy it back onto a new partition scheme. Boot into from your bios.

It's not Arch that you want to tell to not from there, you need to let your BIOS know. Go into your boot settings and set it to boot from USB.

Basically, udev was brought into the whole systemd revolution, and became part of a larger, more complex system. Various changes incremented the interface, and required a jump from .so.0 to .so.1. Rather than supporting both the old interface and the new interface by providing both .so.0 and .so.1, the developers opted to say "fuck it, we'll make them all ...

The Cortex A8 is a specific processor design in the ARM v7 family. It's like how an Intel Celeron D Processor 325 can be described as a processor in the 64-bit Intel EM64T family, or as a processor in Intel's Northwood-128 family. That is, an ARM Cortex A8 describes a specific design, whereas ARM v7 describes the CPU instruction set, gives a minimum set of ...

I have solved the problem. I've allocated empty space for partition using fdisk, but I did not make filesystem,format it and then mount it using mkfs.vfat /dev/mmcblk0p3 and mount -t vfat /dev/mmcblk0p3 /mnt/data. Now works ok!

If the system is completely borked, then there is no guarantee that the error could be written to disk. But since the screen locks too, it seems possible that the error is X-related. X still has its own log files, so start by looking in /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old (or perhaps one of the other /var/log/Xorg.* files) after a crash.
