Hi to all,
hopefully this is the right mailing list for problems and
annotations on arch64, if not, you can put me into your kill file.
When I have installed Arch64 on my AMD64, I had some prolbems:
1. I tried to install with the arch64 7.1 Beta 6 CD.
Partitioning worked well and the packages had been installed,
but I was naot able to boot, because the was no initrd26.img
just a diag1.img that didn't work.
2. Then I tried the arch64 7.0 CD, but this didn't work either.
Unfortunately there is no wget at the CD, so one can't use
it to install by hand.
3. Now I used a gentoo Live CD, which has wget on board, and did
the installation following:
Beside of some inconsistent paths the installation worked very
well, until the pacman.static command.
I don't know, what is ment with "I've only mentioned base
packages", but pacman want to install quite many packages.
Is abiword a base package?
Some packages like tin and wvstreams have unsolved
dependencies, while others exclude each other, like
pcmcia-cs <---> pcmciautils,
udev <---> hotplug,
xf86...unicrome <---> xf86...via,
font...ethiopic <---> font...meltho.
After deleting the packages on the right side, pacman was able
to install the rest.
The rest of the installation worked well and arch boots to
After installing xfce4, include /opt/xfce4/bin in $PATH and
put 'exec startxfce4' into .xinitrc, xfce4 works fine. But
there are no icons in the panel. The buttons are there and work,
but they are grey like the background. The same problem in firefox
and epiphany. At the login console I get the following message
GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: cannot open pixbuf loader module file
'/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders': No such file or directory
Maybe this is a bug, but I can't write a bug report to flyspray
so I dropped it here. Maybe that's the reason, why it's still empty
;-) I hope, not wasted too much of your time.
