knoppixi mounted with -o dev as you said
FoPrefmount --bind /dev/ /yourmounted/dev
is not sufficient
knoppixok
FoPrefso use mount bind to mount your /dev/ inside the arch root. its only temporarly
after that comes step 3 to chroot into the partition and run grub-install
you need this because arch's dev directory is kinda empty as it would be filled by udev on system start
LnxSlckis pacman 3 final?

lokedkI just installed arch on my laptop, but KDE can't start due to no writing permission to /tmp .. shouldn't there be that by default?`
FoPrefknoppix: interesting message. never heard of that one before :(
knoppix: you can let grub probe for disks and stuff
LnxSlcklokedk, change the permissions..
FoPreflokedk: default permissions are a+rwx with the sticky bit set
knoppixFoPref: how?
FoPrefknoppix: let's se..
lokedkFoPref, ah.. i just but 777 on it to test and kde starts up now though
FoPrefknoppix: first perhaps try the --recheck option to grub-install
lokedk: 777 is fine, but it means any user can delete files of other users
riwaHow come I get: [root@riwanet-arch media]# mkdir flashmem
mkdir: cannot create directory `flashmem': Permission denied
as root?
knoppixFoPref: apparently it installed ok
FoPrefknoppix: ah nice :) so try it :)
lokedkFoPref, so what should i change it to, for preventing that
riwaI'm in "/media"
