I once tar'd a (huge) drive which took hours, so I could reformat it. Went to restore it and the tarball was corrupt and unrecoverable. Learned my lesson: I'm an idiot, check the backups before relying on them.
I'm getting this too, I removed openjdk6 ages ago and installed jre and jdk. I think there's some package that has it listed as a dependency to install?EDIT: icedtea-web seems to require it and wants to install it. What is wrong with the jre and jdk?
I personally haven't got it working yet, mainly because I'm happy with LightDM. I had a look at the Linux Mint version of MDM and (annoyingly) they have named it the same but it is different, so unfortunately I have no idea what dependencies there are.
Don't forget that "sudo" essentially means "su do". If you can't get pacman functioning in your chroot, try using the "pacstrap" command (see beginner's guide) but use the argument "pacman" in place of "base" or "base-devel", then chroot. That will reinstall pacman for you.
The OP can read their partition initially though, it's only after udev that they can't.Also, try adding "rootfstype=ext4" to your grub kernel line. Is your /boot on a separate partition or part of your / partition?
Is there any way I can use LightDM themed with the Unity greeter with a systemd-based init? The lightdm-unity-greeter package available in the AUR depends upon lightdm-ubuntu, which conflicts with lightdm. lightdm provides a systemd unit, but lightdm-ubuntu does not. Is there another way to have lightdm-ubuntu start on boot even though it doesn't have systemd support?P.S.
I'm not sure what's the situation now, but you may not get the logo - neither the penguin nor Arch logo:* https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=120516* https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=122778* https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=124730
