    Os-prober is broken AT THIS MOMENT (so you might not even get this error in the future) just don’t install os-prober and the installation will go fine I’ve used this many times before (also with os-prober before it was broken)

    You need to change "ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Bucharest /etc/localtime" to "ln -fs /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Bucharest /etc/localtime" as the localtime link is already there.

    The "-f" will force a new symlink.

    Thank you so much for this. Installing grub on my old UEFI mobo it’s been a real pain! But now arch is up and running thanks to you and the Arch Wiki!

  6. Johan Rylander says:

    /etc/localtime already existed on my system. rm /etc/localtime before the ln command (or possibly use a flag on the ln command)

    Do you have a tutorial on installing a graphical user interface ?

    The command visudo gives the following error.

    "specified editor (vim) does not exist"

    I entered “EDITOR=nano” and was then able to use visudo. Might help anyone else getting stuck at that point.

    Hi Ravi,

    Wanted to add that the UEFI option must be enabled in the BIOS before the grub EFI can be installed. I learned the hard-way. Great instructions thank you.. Just rooted on a Intel NUC, and being used a firewall.

    Hi, I followed all your directions, but I’m getting the error, “yaourt not found”. What do I do?
