Reinstall Archlinux on usbstick

The default Archlinux installer has issue to install grub into usbstick. I have to install grub in my old Archlinux system. I have to use map according to wiki.archlinux to use grub to boot Windows Vista.

The pgp server ( is valid, but also has issue.

The urxvt will also read .Xdefaults when starting. But xrdb is needed to use .Xresources. .Xdefaults is deprecated.

It will save lots of time if using *.pkg in /var/cache/pacman/pkg.

package list:
  • xorg-server xorg-xinit xorg-xhost xorg-xrdb xf86-input-mouse xf86-input-keyboard xf86-input-synaptics xf86-video-intel intel-dri
  • i3-wm i3status i3lock dmenu urxvt-unicode screen dzen2
  • croine acpi acpid cpufrequtils esmtp bc fakeroot
  • chromium qterm-unstable dbus fcitx alsa-utils flashplugin
  • opendesktop-fonts wqy-bitmapfont wqy-zenhei wqy-microhei ttf-dejavu ttf-droid xorg-fonts-100dpi xorg-fonts-75dpi
