How to setup internet connection on ArchLinux as VirtualBox guest?
The problem is pacman cannot resolve the host names and so is unable to install any package. There is a note about network errors on VirtualBox installs and it says to use the "Host interface instead of NAT".
First of all: There is no freaking "Host interface" option for the network. The available options are: Not attached/NAT/NAT Network/Bridged Adapter/Internal Network/Host-only Adapter/Generic Driver
Which one would the "Host interface" be?
Also note that the following options cannot be used (at least without further configuration that isn't mentioned there): NAT Network, Host-only Adapter/Generic Driver
The OK button is not active when selecting them.
I already tried all the ones that I can use and the result is always:
$ping -c 3 google-url ping: unknown host google-url
So, which is the correct VirtualBox's network configuration to make it work with archlinux? Should you do some extra configuration step not mentioned by the beginner's guide to configure the network inside the guest?

Give the Evo/Lution AIS installer a try. It makes installing Arch a breeze. Even I could actually get it installed using it and I never could get Arch installed the "normal" way.No matter where ya' go, there ya' are.
