boot from the usb device, then chroot into your main drive, and check journalctl for any red lines. it should tell you whats stopping it from booting

did you make sure you have the correct video card drivers installed? the thinkpad x220 does not use nvidia, instead you would use pacman -S xf86-video-intel and do not use nomodeset

+Aksel Durand only other thing i can think of besides checking through journalctl is to disconnect everything from the laptop and see if it boots with just the power plugged in. apart from that you need to troubleshoot what part of the laptop is causing the freeze, journalctl should be able to tell you

+Patrick Murphy you skipped the part where you install yaourt pacman -S yaourt When I added the [archlinuxfr] entry in pacman.conf in part 2, it adds the user repositories as an available source, but you need yaourt to install them. so for packages that are part of Arch's base, you use pacman, but for packages only found in the AUR, you use yaourt. The yaourt package itself is included in the Arch base so that you can utilize the AUR after installing it.

+Patrick Murphy - I had success (and some luck) for wifi via USB adapter using parts of the wireless network config guide on the Arch wiki. Try the below if yours is WPA2 encryption iw dev //Gets interface name ip link set interfaceName up iw dev interfaceName scan //Scans for available access points wpa_supplicant -D nl80211,wext -i interfaceName -c <(wpa_passphrase "your_wifiNetwork" "your_key") & /*It will pause and allow you to type, though doesn't look like terminal, enter next command*/ dhcpcd (interface) //provides a dynamic ip to network You should be good to go, continue with rankmirrors and install

+GloriousEggroll - I look forward to it! I was just looking for interim solutions. So far I've got arch up and running with the KDE / Plasma 5 setup but have run into some problems (notably the console "konsole" is missing) - leaving me stuck with the xorg terminal and a bunch of problems on permissions even with sudo. I'm going to switch over to trying manjaro 15.12 xfce for a bit and come back to arch when I have some more experience / knowledge. The Arch philosophy definitely fits me in having no-bloat and understanding the system top to bottom. But, I'm a 15 year windows user with 1 week of linux under my belt. :D

+Patrick Murphy There are no commands that start with "init". There is only editing the bootloader which contains 1 initrd line (2 if you have intel-ucode). for yaourt - sudo nano /etc/pacman.conf scroll to the bottom and type: [archlinuxfr] SigLevel = Never Server = http://repo.archlinux.fr/$arch save, close. sudo pacman -Syu sudo pacman -S yaourt

+Patrick Murphy the init lines are for editing the boot loader. you do it like this (for intel): sudo pacman -S intel-ucode blkid -s PARTUUID -o value /dev/sdxY (change sdxY to your /root partition, copy the PARTUUID somewhere.) sudo nano /boot/loader/entries/arch.conf type the following: title Arch Linux linux /vmlinuz-linux initrd /intel-ucode.img initrd /initramfs-linux.img options root=PARTUUID=the-PARTUUID-you-just-copied rw save and exit. this is all in the guide http://gloriouseggroll.tv/arch-linux-efi-install-guide/

+Patrick Murphy not necessary at all, it's nice to help people get linux running, I do have a Donate link on the blog if you would like to. We'll get that system up and running for ya in no time. You shouldnt have to do the whole thing a 4th time, just chroot into your current install via the usb stick. Once you boot into the USB stick, do the following: lsblk (this will list your drives/partitions, find your linux partitions and mount them, assuming you've already prepared the drives) mount /dev/yourrootPartition /mnt mount /dev/yourbootPartition /mnt/boot mount /dev/yourhomePartition /mnt/home arch-chroot /mnt this will allow you access to your current arch installation. to exit it when you're done, type: exit

+Patrick Murphy - No worries, hope it helped. Just learning as well. Those steps were just to connect for the installer. To get wireless up and running in your actual installation, you need to install their packages. Once you chroot into the system (where GloriusEggroll is editing config files), run the following package manager instruction: # pacman -S wireless_tools wpa_supplicant wpa_actiond dialog iw Then hit yes. You'll now have the iw and wpa_supplicant tools to connect from your system without the installer, and just follow the same method. Doing it this way will mean you're manually initializing wifi every session so it's not a long-term solution. There are a couple wifi managers to automate connection, listed on the wiki. I'll be trying those out down the line.

Me again.... I typoed the xorg network symlink command from the last part, where I created the link I wrote "servuce" instead of "service" and I think that's what's preventing me from booting. When I boot into arch everything seems to be going fine then it hangs on "Started User Manager for UID 120...ID 0" and keeps on trying to do Start User Manager over and over, then it hangs infinitely on "Reach target Graphical Interface.4s0.servuce.devices-enp4s0.servuce.device". I'm assuming my typo is what's stopping the system from booting properly? If yes, how do I edit that typo? I tried in UEFI root "nano /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d" but it was blank (I had mounted the partitions properly) Edit- I rebooted into UEFI and tried "startx" and it returns something along the lines of a network error, saying "Server terminated with error (1)" with lines below that reading "xinit: giving up" "xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused" "xinit: server error"

if you follow my guide it tells you exactly how to install nvidia drivers. To repair windows you would need to boot from the windows disk and do a recovery. I can't explain that, google is your friend there. gparted will allow you to formate/remove the arch partitions, but again, im not explaining that.

+Simion Jalba I know architect exists. My point by doing things by hand is to help teach people how to set it up manually in case something goes on with their system. There is a lot of learning involved in particular with partitions, the bootloader, X server, and graphics drivers, and learning how they work, and how to install/uninstall/upgrade them individually if need. Architect does not teach anything about the package manager, package names, or how to use it. It is good for convenience, but bad for learning.

+GloriousEggroll I would agree here, it (architect) is more of a tool for long-time arch users to streamline the process of installing on new hardware / virtual machines. Manjaro and/or Netrunner Rolling would be a good starting point if one were wanting to get the system up quick and easy with a lower learning curve, though they are still in certain ways very dependent on upstream Arch. Best advice: RTFM. (Arch Wiki and any wikis for it's derivatives if applicable)

So, what purpose does gnome-software serve? Just asking, seeing as it doesn't integrate well with pacman/AUR. Can't update or search for new packages with it on my end, but can uninstall non system-related packages (like the crappy gnome-extras games.) EDIT: killed it with pkill and re-ran, seems to be functional now.

+Flag, The Courier gnome-extra contains further GNOME applications, including an archive manager, disk manager, text editor, and a set of games. (games not so important but the archive manager and text editor are convenient. more importantly it contains the gnome-tweak-tool which is incredibly helpful for customizing your gnome desktop. It also comes with a "Document Reader" aka pdf viewer

Thanks for the elaboration on Gnome-extra, but the original comment was about the gnome-software package available from the AUR (and now the [extra] repo) that was in the guide. I know it's a graphical interface for *some* of the packages, but when I first posted, it only showed what was installed in the system and therefore led me to assume that it was not entirely functional on an Arch build and wondering why it was in the guide in the first place. I did however find out how to get it to function properly in the end.

Thank you. This is the only "non-VM" Arch installation I have found. Now, I understand gpt partitions better. Nevertheless . . . you said, during the first demo that you were going to enlarge the text. You did not!!! I have spent all that time cursing you. It's not until the third part that you finally enlarge the text . . . but only enough to show me how much better your first two parts would have been. Your presentation is long enough. Please leave all the digressions for another Demo. Thank you for all the knowledge you have shared with me.

instead of needing to boot back into the USB for internet, you need to make sure your system service is up. from a clean install: sudo ip link set "device name" up sudo systemctl enable dhcpcd@"device name".service sudo systemctl start dhcpcd@"devicename".service will also work without a reboot

hey man, really enjoyed your guide! I have a little question, is it possible for you to do a guide including encryption (maybe with lvm)? I tried to install an encrypted Arch combining your guide with the additional steps but I'm struggling like hell. maybe for a 2017 update or something like that? cheers

Hi thanks a lot for your video series, very good for jumping from other distros into Arch. I am trying to install in a hybrid graphics laptop with no luck yet. I can not get pass the booting process until it reaches the target 'Graphial user interface' and it goes to a gnome error screen error 'Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again.' If I generate the xorg.conf using nvidia-xconfig tool is even worse, it renders unsuable even a tty. I'll try to follow the steps suggested here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NVIDIA_Optimus Have you ever ran into such issues? Any ideas?

if you are using hybrid graphics with a discrete nvidia card and intel card, you may need to install/configure bumblebee: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bumblebee

Daniel Restrepo checkout nvidia-xrun. It is relatively fast, simple and being actively maintained. If you get stuck at graphical target then while booting with grub press e where arch linux is highlighted and append this to end of the linux .... line. systemd.unit=multi-user.target. Then you will enter in non graphical command line mode. From there you can debug, start lightdm, startx or whatever you use.

Someone with your level of knowlege needs to edit the arch-wiki and turn it into useful information. In its current form the arch-wiki is quite useless, especially its install guide. This is worsened by the fact that it is the first recource google turns up. As a first time installer myself I was met with overly vague, underly verbose and often outdated information.

would like to add an addition note as of new update gnome 3.22 went to wayland and does not support nvidia drivers to fix this type in terminal nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf in there uncoment the wayland enable=false (what this will do is force it to run on xorg instead) hope this helps for anyone having troubles

I tried reinstalling gnome and removing twm but it didnt work. Yesterday it worked fine but i dunno what i did different this time. Too bad I already screwed up the install I setup yesterday.

startx starts the x server, if you see it it just means X works properly. you can type exit into the white terminal to exit our of x server afterwards it sounds like you didnt enable the display manager(gdm, kdm, lightdm), make sure one is installed, (ie sudo pacman -S gdm) then try sudo systemctl enable gdm then reboot. if it fails to load ctrl+alt +f2 to drop to tty console
