    Hello again guys, I've ran into some problems while installing Arch Linux on a USB stick.

    The Arch Linux installer successfully installed all of the files on the USB stick, but the problem is that for some reason, it spits out this error message:

    Code:
    Waiting 10 seconds for device /dev/sda5 ...
    mount: mounting /dev/sda5 on /new_root failed: No such device
    ERROR: Failed to mount the real root device.
    Bailing out, you are on your own. Good luck.
    
    sh: can't access tty; job control turned off
    I have absolutely no idea what to do.

    Is this during boot or installation?

    Delete those two files they try running startx without sudo.
    Where can I find them? Search returned 0 results for both of them.

    Is there a terminal program that lists the biggest files on your HDD?
    This should list the top 10 biggest files and directories in a specific location (in this case /var). Be warned that it can take a while since it goes through everything.
    Code:
    du -a /var| sort -n -r | head -n 10

    Doesn't it list errors too?

    If you are running it as normal user you'll get "access denied" errors, but using sudo will allow it.

    Well, here's the fix then:
    Code:
    du -a /var 2>/dev/null | sort -n -r | head -n 10

    Cant you just install Arch alongside Windows and just select the one you wish to use when booting? Duelboot?

    Is there any real difference between GRUB and Syslinux bootloader?

    There's a real difference between those and GRUB2 as well. And yes you can, but you'd have to install GRUB2 or configure Grub with a Windows selection to boot to Windows as well.

    I'm turning my old junker of a PC into a media center, and I was wondering if I should make it full linux.
    Specs are:
    Intel Pentium 4 2.66GHz
    40GB Hard Drive
    512MB RAM
    Integrated Intel GPU
    It's currently running XP, should I switch to linux(if so, recommend a distro) or just keep it like it is?

    Such a machine could run pretty much any distro I could think of. If you're thinking of turning it into a media center, then I know that Sabayon has a XMBC part which specializes in the media center thing. It's available as a live CD or you can install it.

    Is it relatively easy to install for someone who hasn't used Linux before?

    Sabayon? Easy as piss. It uses the Anaconda installer, which I believe Fedora also uses. Not as short as the Ubuntu one, but just as easy.

    It's security holes in the webserver and php configuration I use that I'm talking about.
    Not the application itself.

    Sabayon is not good for me. I naivly thought I could use it as a medium to get to Gentoo, but doing some research shows that it was a dumb idea to try it. I'm currently doing a stage3 install and should have done that to begin with since I've got enough knowledge that it's pretty easy.

    Questions, questions & even more questions.

    Okay, so i hear around the threads in Linux section stuff about Virtualbox?
    So far my guess for this is it's like a windows where you can "install" a system but not really install it?

    So it's like a.. Test installation?
    If not, is there a program for that?

    --

    And also, when looking at the Arch installation i don't understand the part with partitions, i see people make "boot" partition and "system".

    Is all of that required, or is it just common sense for the Arch install?
    I don't understand it. Nope. 0%.

    VirtualBox is like an emulated version of an OS. Whatever happens to it stays within that instance, meaning it's perfect to learn how to install Arch in. If you fuck up, you can just start again. Take a look at the beginner's guide for more info.
