Pacman preparation failed.
I am trying to install Arch 2009.02 on a Delld630 Dualcore 2 duo 2.0 Ghz with 2 gigs ram and 120gb HD.
I am running Xubuntu 9.04 64-bit and am trying to install Arch inside of Sun VirtualBox.
I set aside 850mb of RAM and an expandable 8 gb hard disk space for the viurtual system.
Everything goes smoothly up until I am supposed to select packages where I get this error:
I picked FTP instead of CD-ROM. I figured maybe I picked a bad mirror so I chose another but I still got the same error. I don't know what is wrong. I can't choose to select the CD as a source because I downloaded the FTP one. My connection is good and Arch recognized it.
