[solved] Distro suggestions - work desktop, Arch not picking up NIC - Page 3

post #21 of 48
I really don't see much point in a package manager without dependency management. Keeping track of the installed packages and having an easy way to install packages is nice and all, but pretty useless on it's own without resolving those packages dependencies, fix broken dependencies, or other many features revolving around what all the packages need to run are.

Could be, but then by that logic Arch is based off every distribution because Pacman has been hacked to work on deb, rpm, tar, bsd based systems and even some bespoke package systems... It's a very versatile package manager thumb.gif

Hate to derail a good topic about automatic dependency resolution in 2014, but Virtualbox works well on FreeBSD...

Yeah I used to run Virtualbox on FreeBSD so I knew it would run. The issue was more going to be VMWare.

You might have been bit by systemd-networkd. I really dislike networkd. I don't know whether ArchBang uses it or not.

I tried to configure the network manually as well but that failed too. Something was seriously off with the install media, it's as if the ISO only detected IPv6 drivers for the NIC. (and it's not the first time I've had this problem with Arch's ISOs either).

Hmm that's very strange. Clearly the solution though is to get the world to finally move to V6, then it'll work flawlessly biggrin.gif

I second that solution proposition.

To be honest I just disk imaged my old work PC and restored it on my new workstation. Did it as an over night job so I wouldn't have any down time during the day (which was the original reason for a fresh install - but that was proving more trouble than it was worth)

This can only be a systemfaild problem, Unix/Linux has always been a "everything is a file" operating system. That means more often than not you can just pick up an installation from one system and put it on a new machine and it will work. Now that systemfaild has windows-like capabilities, it is to no surprise it's exhibiting Windows greatest features, like not transporting an install to new hardware.
