Hm I made it a MBR drive b/c I didn't make the VM EFI available to avoid some possible headaches. I also didn't regen mkinitcpio (wiki's install guides said that unless I set up custom hooks I wouldn't have to). Everything I did afterwards was basically the same though. Edit: also used grub instead of syslinux-systemd. Edit: hm read up on the bootloader wars and it looks like I should be using syslinux for BIOS and EFISTUB or systemd-boot/gummiboot for EFI instead for...
Just binged all of Re:Zero, really liking it so far. At first I thought this was going to be another one of "those" shows but it's getting really good. As hard as it was to watch the last few episodes though, I'm kind of expecting a happily ever after kind of ending though,  [[SPOILER]]
@akiroz Hm made a fresh VM and redid the entire process.   Formatted MBR and partitioned the 32GB virtual drive into a 30GB Primary Ext4 bootable partition and a 2GB Swap partition. Mounted sda1 (ext4) then installed the core packages (leaving out the minor steps like locale and timezone). Went on to get yaourt and add the AUR. Then continued to do a repo update and install xorg with intel drivers (I'd assume that's what I should be doing with virtual machines). After...
Yeah. UIUC ended up being my first choice after visiting the "higher ranked" schools for undergraduate computer engineering. I visited Carnegie Mellon and MIT and felt rather lukewarm about those two and didn't get to visit Stanford or UC Berkeley (not that I was accepted into either of those 4) so UIUC as rank 5 and a place that I felt comfortable going to (that 16 hour drive though from the northeast...) was my best choice. I started looking at UW too late b/c it was...
Will do. Right now it's riding on direct admission and a scholarship otherwise I have no reason to transfer from University of Illinois (UC campus). Not sure why but California doesn't really seem like my place. I've never really bought into the idea of the California life but I haven't actually been there so we'll see if I ever happen to visit.  http://arstechnica.co.uk/security/2016/07/avast-to-buy-avg-iot-malware/ :O Not that it matters b/c Linux master race.
Talking about Seattle, I really want to attend University of Washington's main campus at Seattle. Campus looks gorgeous and their Comp Engineering program is great as well.
Yeah did the usual stuff, first packages I installed were the arch base packages then xorg and then after that gnome, gnome-extras and set gdm.service to run on boot. Checked first 4 virtual consoles and nothing. I followed this for Arch: http://www.linuxveda.com/2015/02/18/arch-linux-tutorial-updated-feb-2015/ And then this for GNOME: http://www.muktware.io/how-to-install-gnome-on-arch-linux-arch-tutorial/ Made the partition MBR b/c apparently VDI discs don't like GPT.
Is my VM just slow or is GNOME just forever booting?     It's been 5 minutes since I've gotten the message that GDM has booted but nothing has showed and I can't enter commands.   Edit: fast forward to 20 minutes, still here.

http://arstechnica.co.uk/gadgets/2016/07/amd-rx-480-crossfire-vs-nvidia-gtx-1080-ashes/   More salt in the wound for AMD. This is DX12 as well since they're using AotS as the test program so this does not fare well for AMD.
