I've played with some arch-based systems... apricity looks interesting... the integration with wine in particular. I've got manjaro running in a vm on a mac... what's the question?

After I install either of those two, it gives the "updates available" message. So I click on it to install updates. After it's done, it gives an error message, error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files).

Try ignoring the updates. Or, are you updating with sudo?

Are the update mirrors accurate?

And... turn on verbose logging during the install and update. I'll grab a new vm and install apricity...

Not using sudo, just the update manager that shows all the updates you need checked off, then you click apply.

I don't know anything about update mirrors, not that good with linux.

How do you turn on verbose logging?

Mirrors are the servers that house the updates. Sometimes they change and the changes aren't communicated.

Here's an installation process that uses the command line. I just installed it on an Oracle VirtualBox using the command line from a bootable usb on a mac... followed the instructions found here:

Everything worked. I didn't look for updates. You might try the installation without updates and see if everything boots before applying updates.

Cool looking interface.

Barry, why did you choose Arch?.....very time consuming.....especially for a newbie.....

I read a step by step installation article for Arch about a week ago, I'll check my history, if I find it, I'll post the URL for you.....

Just bored with Ubuntu & Mint. Like trying new stuff.

Not installing a fresh version of arch, but either Manjaro or Apricity. Installing it's not a big deal, it's what to do with it after.
