I installed Arch again recently and came across a few problems.
First problem was, this time I installed inside a LAN (last time with my home router), hence I had to config the IP addressed as well. I have edited my previous article regarding that. Please check.
Secondly, an error message kept me bugging. It was my Wireless device. As for my previous article, installing
b43-firmware was not enough. I had to blacklist those bugging modules. They were brcmsmac and bcma.
To blacklist them, create a conf file inside
wlan.conf. However, you can change the name of the file as you want. Then I added these lines to that file.
blacklist brcmsmac blacklist bcma
broadcom-wl from AUR.
$ packer -S broadcom-wl
(Please note, I haven’t used sudo, because now packer doesn’t support
--asroot option in
makepkg. But it will ask for the password before installation.)
It did fixed the error with those modules, but still no KDE (KDM). I tried many methods, but no luck. There were no errors even in the
But the missing part was I had forgotten to install xorg. It didn’t let me start KDM or any DMs. So, I didn’t think twice and installed xorg.
$ sudo pacman -S xorg
Tadaaa..!! Now it works.
I know this is not some magic. But I just thought of sharing with you.
But still I have a problem in getting my HSDPA dongle working. I will let you know when I find any solution.
