@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.
Technically it should only need a 6-pin if it actually stayed within that 150W envelope but I think some reviewers were getting 200W+? And some of that is being pulled from the PCIe slot above its limit. I think how it's supposed to be is that the 480 pulls 75W from PCIe (max) and 75W from 6-pin (should be 8-pin for headroom). However since AMD wanted high yields from the 14nm FinFET process they weren't very strict with binning so they deliberately set a higher voltage...
Just binged ReLIFE; great series! Quite a nice relaxing show to watch, kind of fills the hole left by the absence of Flying Witch (feel is a bit more different but still relaxing).
