32bit install

If you are thinking of installing ArchBang32 you may find a few issues. It can be done but you will need to run a few commands to get the job done. Abinstall was built for ArchBang x86_64 version. After running installer you will find that system will not boot as entries for ArchBang are missing. Stay calm fire up live iso again and do the following in a terminal…

You will need a working network connection for next part

Mount your /root partition you created to /mnt (if you used a /boot partition then mount that too /mnt/boot).

Mirrorlist is not going to work, so edit your mirrorlist live then copy it too /mnt/etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

Now lets get into your new system..

sudo arch-chroot /mnt

Next we will get pacman working

sudo pacman-key --init
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux
sudo pacman-key --populate archlinux32

Update and install kernel

pacman -Syyu linux

Now fix bootloader (am assuming you used Grub here)

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

If all goes well grub will find your kernel to allow you to boot your system.

To leave chroot system simply type ‘exit’

You can either unmount partitions or poweroff, remove media then boot 😉
