(none) Login, [root@(none)], bsdcpio: failed to set default locale
I am trying to install Arch onto my Dell Dimensions l866r. I have installed Arch before but I am getting a problem this time.
I go through the installation fine, then I get to the part where you select what things you want to install. The "select packages" part. I leave the default checked ones alone and only check sudo, and some of the command things on the last part of the list.
I then continue but when it is installing the packages and getting them ready it says this:
bsdcpio: failed to set default locale
And after the install it says this for the login:
And when I login as root, it says:
It has done this both times I have installed it. And so a minute ago I tried running "pacman -Syu" and this is what it gave me:
warning: database file for "extra" does not exist warning: database file for "community" does not exist :: Synchronizing package databases... core is up to date extra 1384.5 KiB 805k/s 00:02 [#####(not exact amount of #'s)######] 100% community 1651.8 KiB 1754K/s 00:01 [####(not exact amount)] 100% :: Starting full system upgrade... there is nothing to do
I also ran pacman -S chkrootkit and it installed fine and the program ran fine. And even after rebooting chkrootkit was still installed and ran fine.
I could even make a user "jreidsma" and login with it.
Any ideas? Should I try downloading the ISO again and reinstalling? Or did I forget and miss something. It has been a while sense I installed Arch.
I ran hostname l866r and it changed it to l866r login and [root@l866r ~]
I also did this to my other computer, it had the same problem.
But after rebooting it went back to (none)

The hostname you set with command is temporary. To make it permanent edit/add the following line in /etc/rc.conf:

This is the first time I have had arch do this, so it startled me a little bit.
