Happy New Year

Well 1 more item checked off the bucket list.
Installed arch & archbang on my laptops.
Can't say it was fun, but thems the learning curves.

archbang lite beta - really wished this would work, but out of 3 tries, only 1 would boot. then i hit the ping issue. also wasn't able to install firefox.
archbang  curve - i guess i'm getting used to things now. that ping issue though. then the update issue.

Guess its time to learn where to find where to report issues.

Happy New Year wink

Welcome to ArchBang

Can you post output of

ls -lah /usr/bin/ping

Or is it a network connection issue?

Re: Happy New Year

ping works after downloading and re-installed iputils-20160308.0db72a4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
i wonder how it's broken. I've tried clean installing from iso 5x. It happens every time. Let me know if I can help check anything.

Re: Happy New Year

More than likely it's an sticky bit on ping command, reinstalling will fix the issue. Something I might look at for next release, possibly set up ping during build.
