You should download the archlinux-2015.08.01-dual.iso, or better yet, the archlinux-2015.08.01-dual.iso.torrent file and download Arch Linux via a P2P application. The 'dual' says that the ISO file is compatible for both x86_64 and i686 architecture computers. The bootstrap image in the mirror is used for installing Arch Linux on an existing Linux ...

My situation may be similar, and might have some help. I have two Ubuntu gnome systems, one desktop and one laptop. Both have Apache installed in the default location of /var/www. On both I set myself to owner, and sometimes www-data as group. I was perplexed that, using Nautilus, I could not delete file on the desktop using the delete key, but I could ...

Just put it somewhere inside the PKGBUILD but outside of prepare(), build() and package(). When done just remove it.

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, ...

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.

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).

You can edit /etc/sudoers with the visudo command and add this line Defaults env_keep += "http_proxy https_proxy ftp_proxy" This pass the current user environment variables to the command excecuted under sudo, is the same as sudo -E some_command but automatically, you need this because yaourt internally uses sudo pacman and not sudo -E pacman This is ...

We could find the problem on the Virtualbox VMs/MachineName/Logs/VBox.log. In this case the pulseaudio stucks (because 2 conflicting soundcards), by changing the default Host Audio Driver from PulseAudio to ALSA, the VM now can start normally.

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 ...

It looks like either the machine isn't listening on port 22 or you are trying to ssh into with the wrong IP address. Try mapping your LAN for machines listening on SSH port 22: Command to map with nmap: nmap -p 22 --open -sV 192.168.1.0/24 It also looks like you are thinking it will be on 192.168.0.something, so try this too: nmap -p 22 --open -sV ...

I agree with rexroni that installing Arch is an educational experience. However, if you're in a rush and just want to get things done, you might look at Manjaro Linux (https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Download_Manjaro) which I think of as Arch with an installer.

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 ...

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 ...

Try booting into one of the two others, say Ubuntu, trigger an update-grub in there, which should run os-prober, detect all installations, and update the grub-menu with loaders for all of them. If it doesn't, try the same from the Fedora installation.

I just stumbled upon your question and noticed there were no replies so I thought I'd give it a whirl. First off, I do not edit /etc/i3status.conf . Instead, I use conky and edit ~/.conkyrc . By changing the /etc/i3status.conf, you are changing the system file, which will then make that setting system wide. Just add the following to your ~/.conkyrc and it ...

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 ...

PAM is involved in password changes because that's how you do things like password strength checking. The password entries in your PAM configs control what is done. My hypothesis in this situation is that it is a weird interaction between Arch and Debian. You're running the Arch chpasswd, which is doing a bunch of stuff (mostly loading shared libraries) ...

It's likely Selinux / Ubuntu's alternative. An excellent video on using selinux correctly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQqX3RWn0Yw I'm not a Ubuntu (I think it's apparmor?) expert so I can't help there.

This page https://www.archlinux.org/news/ca-certificates-update/ says basically copy it in /etc/ca-certificates/trust-source/anchors/ and then run update-ca-trust. If you use Manjaro instead of Arch, for some reason that doesn't work, but if you put them in /usr/share/ca-certificates/trust-source/anchors/ instead, it works fine. (and I think I like it ...

Yes, at least some chips commonly found in 3G/4G modem (e.g. Huawei) are able to be put into a voice-compatible mode by using so-called 'ussd'-codes. But, then you'll have the problem nwilder mentioned: No packaged software for in the repos.

On Debian-based systems, there is a file that causes 5 extra getty's to be launched on startup if you've just built a server (without dbus service): /lib/systemd/system/getty.target.wants/getty-static.service In it, it says: [Service] Type=oneshot ExecStart=/bin/systemctl --no-block start getty@tty2.service getty@tty3.service getty@tty4.service ...

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 ...

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

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.

I tried to picture how you'd scroll unintentionally with your thumbs and am I right in supposing that this happens when you're typing? If that's the case, you can use syndaemon to disable the touchpad while you type. The utility is part of xf86-input-synaptics and has some sane defaults (read the man page if you're interested in tweaking them). Normally, you ...

If two files have different inode numbers, they aren't hardlinked. That's the definition of hard links — it's the same file (so same metadata including the inode number) at different locations in the filesystem (different names or different directories). Bison is an implementation of yacc. More precisely, bison -y emulates a POSIX yacc. You can have a ...

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 ...

Either your cookie file $XAUTHORITY is getting cleaned up, or maybe your machine name is changing (some aggressive dhcp settings?) so that the wrong thing is getting looked up.

I ran into something like this before. I think the issue is that you're trying to compile gcc41 from AUR, using GCC 5.2.0-1 (latest arch version.) GCC adds new errors as versions go on, so the source code of older versions of GCC isn't always considered valid under newer versions of GCC. If you can find a way to disable this warning that might do the ...

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 ...

First check if your assumption is true. Set loglevel to "verbose" and restart mpd. The logs will tell you. Set the log to "syslog" and follow the syslog with tail this will give you a glance on the interaction with pulse/alsa and more flexibility in troubleshooting. Possible reasons: Auto scan is not set. Update the database from within ncmpcpp. MPD has ...
