A little history: previously a mandrake and suse user,just tried mageia
that failed and now want to try a different system!
Version 20140301dual was downloaded as an iso file then burnt onto a CD.
(This was a reason to try: other distributions are getting too big,
beyond the typical cd capacity).
The (old) pc file structure is inherited from mandriva, with separate
mount points for m$, /home /swap /boot /.
Tried the command:
pacman /mnt base
error response, that database files are non-existent for core, extra,
What to do please?
