I have been following the Arch Wiki Beginner's Guide and I can't seem to get arch-chroot working for me. This is the third time running through the entire process. The first time I ran through the process I got stuck in Grub2 at the end. More specifically I got stuck at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...27_Guide#Extra
, I'm not sure if a login screen should have appeared, but at the very least it wasn't a normal terminal prompt.
Now I can't even go through the arch-chroot step. Here's the error:
mount: sys is already mounted or /mnt/sys busy
sys is already mounted on /sys
sys is already mounted on /mnt/sys
==> ERROR: failed to setup API filesystems in chroot /mnt
I don't understand this message, since I thought every time I rebooted the filesystems should have automatically unmounted, and therefore I would've had to remount them every time I reran the live cd. I tried to unmount the filesystems, boot and home were mounted on /mnt/boot and /mnt/home, they unmounted fine. I couldn't unmount root which was mounted on /mnt, ( I tried umount /mnt with no avail)
Does someone know what is happening? I've installed Arch before, but they changed the process this time and I don't know what is supposed to happen at the end.
So in Summary:
1) How do I fix the above problem with arch-chroot?
2) What is 'sys' supposed to be and how did it get mounted in the first place? I never typed any command mounting it.
3) After the process of going through the instructions, am I supposed to get stuck in Grub2 after rebooting? (it may make sense since I don't have any gui set up, but I should be able to login to my user account right?)
4) If none of these problems sound familiar, is the issue something to do with my live cd? Do I need to make another one?
Any help is appreciated.
