First off, I've installed arch before, but managed to not encounter any of the problems I'm having at the moment (not sure how). But I'm well and truly stuck. First, my network interface is now called enp3s0 rather than eth0, so every time I start arch, I need to run
ip link set enp3s0
how do I configure this so it happens automatically?
My second issue seems more peculiar; after booting into arch, I installed the enlightenment WM with pacman, and tried to run it, but apparently I did not have a couple of xorg packages, namely xorg-xinit, and another which I forget. After installing these however, editing the .xinitrc file, and running startx, I just got 3 white bash boxes on a black screen. Though if I run enlightenment_start in one of those boxes, enlightenment starts fine (albeit with 3 terminal boxes open, 2 I can close fine, but if the third is closed, enlightenment exits). I am certain this is not normal behaviour, and any help as to what I'm doing wrong here would be much appreciated.
