I tried Arch before and just wasn't all that impressed but the install was relatively problem free. I went back to Debian - then tried Ubuntu. Then decided to try Arch again.


Pacman continually freezes at 99% - the only reference I can find to this on the Arch sites is a bug report - marked fixed. Theres a reference to a workaround but no link.


So can anyone tell me how to get round this? I was looking to find out how to restart pacman but don't see anything.

I switched repositories but all that happened was that I got into a loop that cited "Some packages failed to down load would you like to try another repository?" I started the install again and it ran through without problems - just a huge amount of stuff to configure now.....
