    Try clearing your pacman cache
    alternatively try making sure that you merged pacman 4.x's new pacman.conf with your current one

    If you use vim (or gvim) for editing, then use this command and work out the differences (use gvimdiff if you use gvim).

    Code:
    vimdiff /etc/pacman.conf /etc/pacman.conf.pacnew

    Doesn't work for me and I'm using SLiM. The screen goes black and loads SLiM back up again.

    What window manager should I go with? I'm debating between awesome, fluxbox, subtle, and quarkewm, but other recommendations are welcome. I'm on arch, and my computer is good enough to use any wm. What are you guys using?

    Edit:
    Also, I use multiple monitors, actually three, with eyeinfinity, if I can get that working under arch...

    And that's exactly why we will never be able to get out of a frozen fullscreen application without escaping to a fullscreen terminal.

    sorry, I'm not exactly well educated on these things, but how can a CD be persistent? is it rewriteable?

    Ah shit, meant Live USB.

    Edited:

    There are guides on making Live CDs persistent I think, they involve putting the persistence file on the hard drive I believe.

    CD's can be used as persistent devices too, actually. Windows Vista and up include features for this.

    It cannot do those. It does everything in Software mode, as no translation is done, afaik.
    Remember that Wine is not an emulator, but a compability layer.

    If you want to install it to a flash drive, something small like arch or debian would be good.

    If you want to run it like a live cd, you could go with ubuntu or mint. I believe both of these support persistent storage on flash drives.

    Avoid too much SWAP usage, or if you can, don't create a SWAP partition at all, since it's a lot of read/write all the time from the disk.
