I've recently seen threads on this list pertaining to interesting issues with the Arch Linux core isos.
I haven't had that problem in my primary tests of those Isos in particular.
Is there any reason why a successful installation may occur in one environment over another? Or is this a common Linux problem.
Thanks for answering my question.
I hope that the rest of you folks have successful Core installations, however a net-install is the only real way to isntall Arch Linux.
I do not see the point of the core installer media, personally. Why would one wish to use that? A snapshot will become outdated in a flash, and all of you archers know this. As soon as a newer package version is available the entire snapshot is outdated instantly. Or will be, given a few weeks/months/years/whatever.
I therefore have always installed from what I believe to be the Arch-Way, wich is installing via the Internet alone to have an updated system.
Does anyone agree/disagree with my idea on the proper way to install Arch? :D
