Only people, who want to keep rolling (so no clean install), need to do this and only if you want to have your submicron wallpapers back. If you want to build iso’s it is mandatory to do this.

Since more and more people are building their own iso on the basis of the packages on github, we would like to be able to add even more mirror sites/urls to your system in the future.

We have created a new package called arcolinux-mirrorlist-git just for that reason.

We have now 2 mirrors. We will add more to the list in the future.

It will install a file into /etc/pacman.d with the name “arcolinux-mirrorlist”.

BUT

You will need to change your /etc/pacman.conf

 

Procedure

First do an “update” in your terminal.

Install the new package with “sudo pacman -S arcolinux-mirrorlist-git

Then only replace the ArcoLinux lines of your current pacman.conf with these lines.
You can do a copy/paste but delete the older ArcoLinux lines first and then do the copy/paste.

Do not delete the Arch Linux lines.

With this copy/paste you will get the wallpapers from Submicron back.
We have moved these wallpapers (1GB) to a separate github for easier mirroring and more efficiency.

AND HERE IS PROOF
IF ONE SERVER IS SLOW
THE OTHER TAKES OVER

If errors occur during a build of an iso, we were forced to retry and hope all 1000+ packages could be downloaded.

Now the backup server kicks in.
