Fresh install fails on x86_64 with cracklib integrity verification failure and signer verification failure. Tried with 12.12 and 13.01 install images. Other signature failures occur with vim packages. pacman-key --populate and --update result in 'No need to update/refresh'. Can't report the relevant keys as I can't access the machine at any time. arch-chroot /mnt drops in an irresponsive shell. Even ls fails in this chroot. Used mirror.archlinux.ikoula.com .
Any hints how to resolve this ?
Just guessing: once booted up and connected to the net try running this command: # pacman-key --refresh-keys
After that please be sure the mirror you are using is up to date. You may even try installing 'reflector' before going the full install to have it select the newest and fastest mirrors - although I'm not sure if the dependencies it will pull does make it worth: # reflector -f 8 -l 20 -p http --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist
By the way: next time you need support for anything else than a AUR-related issue please be sure to ask it in the proper place, in this case the [arch-general] mailing list.
