Hi Guillermo,

I had this problem as well - I think it's been there from the get-go.
(I just download the packages now and use pacman.static to do the install
from another working partition.)

FWIW, I was able to get a working install with the ISO the first time by
booting into the system under the single-user/emergency mode and running
After that I was able to boot-up normally.

I don't really understand what the problem with bash is - (I ended up using
the Gentoo one instead.)
