Archlinux, it is madness.

Tags General 

There was a weird bug in stuffkeeper, only reproducable in archlinux.

So I thought, lets install archlinux, so I went to www.archlinux.org, clicked “Get arch” and grabbed the ftp-install iso.

Started the install, and it failed.  Something about filelist not found.

Does it turn out that the FTP ISO does not work, because the installer is too old (the repository format changed).

But there is no notice on the archlinux page or anything. They just happily let you download a broken installer.

Sorry guys, but in my eye’s that is just pathetic and retarted. What if this was my only machine? I would have wound up with a broken system and no easy way to fix it :-/ because you notice it after repartioning and formatting your harddisk.
