1 - added the mirrorlist
2 - ran paccheck --nosync (just synced pacman anyway)
3 - got this

============ SUMMARY ==============

All OK.
This is some extra assurance.

And, just to add to the frenzy: THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN PACKAGE SIGNING TO BEGIN WITH*!!!! Thanks to the Grand Canopener there are some people (like you) that do care about safety!

There, IgnorantGURU (caps on the guru, it's the truth, so there), just what this (otherwise great) distro needed, a way to verify that what's streaming on to the disk is legit!

Cool piece of software, indispesible tool!

(you can quote me on that if it'll help any)


(* referring to the hub-hub Arche's...)
