pacstrap -C /usr/share/devtools/pacman-extra.conf -c -d -G -M /tmp/tmp.eKptMyKU0t diffutils gettext grep inetutils iproute2 iputils pacman procps-ng psmisc sed tar util-linux which gzip
==> Creating install root at /tmp/tmp.eKptMyKU0t

warning: dependency cycle detected:
warning: systemd will be installed before its iptables dependency
