I reinstalled because I wanted Arch on a different partition. I know it doesn't really matter and I am just trying to learn more about linux in general so I thought a reinstall to the partition I wanted would be good practice for me. Also, I have done a lot of changes to my old Arch install and I got a little lost
. So now I at least know where I am starting at a clean install! In fact I just installed Arch 0.7.2 in place of 0.7.1.
On to the trouble, I have 0.7.2 installed at /dev/hdb8, and can boot into it just fine. When I try to use pacman -Syu or -Sy or anything else for that matter I get the same message 'Resource temp. unavailable'. I KVM over to my other tower and can browse the ftp repositories, so it does sound like a connection problem.
I ran ifconfig and all looks good. I can ping my router, and other pc's on my LAN and my other pc's can also ping my Arch install. So, what do I need to do to pacman working?
