access installation guides from arch installer


Is there a way to access the arch wiki installation guides from within the arch installer? During the install all I found was a general howto install.txt.

Install a text based browser and use that to access the archwiki

Text based browsers: links, lynx, w3m

I know I can install a text browser, which I eventually installed lynx. I was wondering if there was a way without doing so. The reason I'm asking is during the install I was having trouble getting the wired network up and running. For whatever reason arch wants to rename eth0 to eno1 and I was needing access to more detailed instructions for setting up the network during the install, besides the fact I was typing one of the commands wrong(LOL).

Sorry I don't know any other way but you can always read the manpages

Also...
If you have a smartphone there is ArchWiki Viewer for Android you can use.

okay, thanks anyways. I may be wrong(which is usually the case) or I may be thinking of gentoo, but it seems like the last time I installed arch (been a few years) that there was a more detailed instruction manual on the install disk/iso.

elinks is on the Arch ISO

EDIT: To bring up a wired connection in the live environment, use:
Code:
# systemctl start dhcpcd
EDIT2: I think there may be an install.txt (or similar) as well.

Thanks, that was what I was looking for, just wanted to know for future reference. I must have been seeing double last night. I had typed dhcp instead of dhcpcd LOL during setup last night and didn't catch it till this morning. The install.txt doesn't give enough info if a real problem arises besides stupidity. Imagine what a good night of rest will do for you.
