hostname and hosts

Postby jwp1 » Wed Nov 11, 2015 7:08 pm

Hi really new to arch but the wikki is really good.
Studying for the LPI exams and the Raspberry Arch distro seemed to have everything I needed.
VI was right there.

I went though and added a user account and changed the root password.
I did not like the hostname and followed the wikki instructions about how to change it.

Then I went to work and came back. It would no longer boot.

the link below is a picture of what happens.
Oh also did pacman -Syu -- this might be the real problem.

Thanks
