Hello there, Arch (and Linux, in honesty) newbie here. I've installed the archlinux-2008.06-core-x86_64 ISO on my PC, and I'm having a rather frustrating problem with it.
While installing certain packages such as alsa-utils and X using pacman, I find that when I try to run any of their commands afterwards (such as alsamixer or "Xorg -configure") I get the following error back:
-bash: /usr/bin/name: No such file or directory
I thought this might just be a the system being stupid so I decided to run "pacman -Syu" to upgrade the entire system. Now pacman returns the same error to me when I try and run it, so do vi, nano, and all other packages that were upgraded. Keep in mind that I could run these programs perfectly before.
When I run the command "which filename" I usually get a message back giving me a file path (usually something like - in the case of vi - /usr/bin/vi)
Anybody have any ideas?
