This keeps happening when I try to install most packages in pacman

Try clearing your pacman cache
alternatively try making sure that you merged pacman 4.x's new pacman.conf with your current one
WARNING! WARNING! XORG 1.11 VULNERABILITY FOUND, RENDERS A LOCKED SYSTEM UNSECURED!
A Xorg server vulnerability which makes it possible to kill any screensaver / screen locker using the [CTRL + ALT + Multiply] keyboard combination has been discovered yesterday. (multiply is the "*" character on the Numpad)
Luckily my little brother doesn't know this. All is well.
Hmm, just tried this in my Arch VM, and it does in fact work. Sort of odd.
Yep, 1.11.1 has the vuln.
Doesn't work for me (probably because I use CDM).
What's a nice music player I can use in the terminal?
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?
Also, I use multiple monitors, actually three, with eyeinfinity, if I can get that working under arch...
What did LXDE use again? Openbox?
Just make a obscure keyboard shortcut to xkill
So tired of the shit laptops they give us for our computer class, which, when the keys aren't broken off and the wireless router isn't kaput, runs WINDOWS XP, I shall now work off a persistent Ubuntu Live USB.
Ah shit, meant Live USB.
There are guides on making Live CDs persistent I think, they involve putting the persistence file on the hard drive I believe.
How do I get WINE on Arch Linux?
isn't it wine1.3
# pacman -Ss wine
You'll find it
I hope you know Wine can only do DirectX 9 and openGL.
What's a good distro for use on a flash drive?
Yup, everything works fine now, got my wine. Just had to enable multilib.
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.
I do need some help with enabling my audio, though.
Debian it is then.
And thanks for the tip T3hGaamerDK.
