arch linux install - 2012.08.04

Oh arch linux, sometimes you make me want to punch myself in the face.

How to install Arch - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_Guide.

Unfortunately I had problem with Grub. This is how I resolved it.

grub-install /dev/sda

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg  

Configure LVM

  • Make sure you change USELVM="no" to USELVM="yes" in /etc/rc.conf. The rc.sysinit script that parses the USELVM variable entry will accept either yes or YES, however it will not accept mixed case [This is fixed in latest release].
  • Make sure that lvm2 is in the HOOKS section of /etc/mkinitcpio.conf just before the filesystems so that your kernel will find LVM volumes at boot time.
  • If your root filesystem ( "/" ) is put onto a logical volume, make sure regenerate kernel image based on above modified /etc/mkinitcpio.conf by using below command so that bootloader can find your root during booting
     cd /boot 
     mkinitcpio -p linux
