The COSI Arch Build has been attempted in the past, with failures tending to cause people to resort to other operating systems.

In April 2016, a new lab image has been contemplated and we want to try and see if using Arch will solve the NFS problems.


Installation

Get the Arch Dual ISO CD and start it up.

Check that the system clock is set up right. (also check network connections)

timedatectl set-ntp true

Determine what drive you want to use.

lsblk

In this case it was /dev/sda

Start up parted and begin partitioning the disks.

parted /dev/sda
mklabel msdos
mkpart primary ext4 1M 280G
exit

Format the disks. Say yes if it complains to continue to partition.

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1
