pacman -Q > pacman.txt generates a txt of all pkgs installed so you can get a  feel for cli so when things like this happen you can continue on in you adventure.. also remember the arch philo   simple minimal elegant

+Vedant Kamlaskar Which iso did you use?

To make sure you're using the latest calamares installer, boot the iso, run "sudo pacman -Sy" (password: bbqlinux) followed by "sudo pacman -S calamares". Then start the installer.

Hello Everyone,
I am a newbie when it comes to Linux(have used ubuntu before).
I am trying to install BBQLINUX on my current windows 7 based laptop.
Already booted into the live disc of BBQLinux. 
My question:
What should be the partition(s) size allocated to "/", "/boot", "linux swap"?

I want to dual boot the system and already have different partitions on my current internal harddisk.

Can't get this to install with efi, grub fails to install with a python error but it's using the right target. I booted in uefi mode and wiped my entire HD, but now I'm stuck. Anyone successfully do this?

it said it installed fine but it didn't boot up right for me. I booted the usb again and this is what I did:
1. re run the install and mark your efi partition as /boot and bootloader install. 
2. after the install open up terminal and run the following:
sudo bash

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt   (you can substitue sda1 for your efi partition)

grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/mnt --bootloader-id=grub --boot-directory=/mnt --recheck --debug

grub-mkconfig -o /mnt/grub/grub.cfg

just noticed something on my new install, couple of folders off root i have ownership of that i probably shouldnt /etc and /root

they are both set to me as owner and to the users group. that should not be that way i would think. should be root/root

Installation  - 
 
So its been a while since I've used BBW but I'm seeming to have a bit of trouble installing from my USB. I'm using the latest image (1.1.2015) It boots to the live session fine. But during install the unpackfs/main.py script fails at the end. (See pic) Here's what I'm attempting to do. I have two HDD's in my PC. A 2TB that I have windows 8.1 update 1 on 1.65TB partition and a 350GB partition that I plan to use as /home. The other HDD is a 20GB that I gave to / and I told the installer to install the boot loader on the system partition so it dosent touch my windows MBR because as of now I don't have a way to fix my windows install if grub screws it up. (Has happened to me before so I'm not risking it) in case you need it my rig is as follows

Amd a-10 black edition 6800k richland quad core apu

8gigs of ram

Seagate baracuda (2TB)

Seagate laptop HDD (20gb)

MSI radeon HD 7750 GHz edition

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You need to install manually GRUB. If you want to try...
-Try to install BBQLinux (you'll get the same error, that's ok).
-reboot (very important)
-open a terminal, and get superpowers (default password is bbqlinux)
  su
-Mount your root partition (if you don't know where is located, run fdisk -l)
  mount /dev/sdXX /mnt
if you are using a separate boot partition, mount it also
  mount /dev/sdXX /mnt/boot
-Install GRUB:
  grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/boot/ --recheck /dev/sdX
Note that, if your partition is sda2, you need to put only sda
-Apply changes
  set -e
  grub-mkconfig -o /mnt/boot/grub/grub.cfg

That's it, now you should be able to boot BBQLinux.
This worked for me, but now I'm dealing with the Radeon drivers (the screen goes blank during booting, and if I use "nomodeset" boots fine, but without graphics HW acceleration and no brightness control... the screen burns my eyes xD).

when you build from source use job command "-j(number of cores) so say you were using make and had a 4 core processor that was an i7 

make -j8 <<< this will let each cpu core perform 2 processes per job over 1 there for doubling speed

now my fx 4100 is heavily overclocked and can handle 3 jobs per process on make and 4 jobs per process on git,repo and subversion syncing as well as system updating

Anyone else facing things issue?
Or does someone knows a fix?

+Mark V "doesn't work" is no answer. I'm pretty sure that the confusing text in your terminal explains exactly why it doesn't work.
