https://bbs.archlinux.org – I have a RevoDrive 3 which needs linux 3.2 to be detected, I was trying to make a new install cd but that was too much of a PITA. I then found the nightly builds of the install CDs and was about to try them. I then got the idea to install arch from within my currently running arch install thats on a different drive. Following this guide I've run into a road block.When I issue the command pacman -Sy -r /media/revodrive I get the error error: failed to initialize alpm library (could not find or read directory). I've tried it both as root and my normal user but still get the same error. (HowTos)
