Should i upgrade pacman first???
Yes, of course, pacman and manjaro-system should have top priority.

OK so im trying to update pacman but i only get this error:

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -Su
warning: config file /etc/pacman.conf, line 43: directive 'LocalFileSigLevel' in section 'options' not recognized.
:: The following packages should be upgraded first :
    pacman
:: Do you want to cancel the current operation
:: and upgrade these packages now? [Y/n]

resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: kalu: requires pacman<4.1

That's no problem some recommend disable syncfirst to update your system but try this first
Uninstal kalu temporary and update system
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -Rs kalu && sudo pacman -Syu

if your update without errors reinstall kalu
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S kalu

..and your done - hope :)

TY all for the replyies this is indeed a great community, however i had to re-install  ;D the system was just way to out of date, plus i got a view of the new graphical installer (dead easy to use), im on the default xfce desktop at 64bit (nice base to build on) wobling away with compiz, really enyoying this operating system. Manjaro Linux its just fantastic., lol.

Good Bye. ty all.

I also had to get rid of ArchBang after installing the free drivers, jus followed the wiki but it was no good, upon re-boot i only had a blank screen but do you remember what commands did you use to install your driver? Cause i want to use my legacy nvidia card it gets overheated but im not gonna mess my install this time,  ;D

This may help some http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html#mountingadditionsiso

After you have donw what you said, you will need to enable the guest extensions in your Virtual Box software.

Edit- Umm, sorry I am not able to completely understand what you are trying to do , could you be more specific ?
If you are trying to install Manjaro in a VM, then you can do it directly.

It is worth reading this page in the wiki (in case you haven't):

http://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Virtualbox
The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control
by martial law. It is control by the psychological
manipulation of consciousness, through which reality
is defined so that those who exist within do not even
realize that they are in prison.

Hi, new guy here, haven't actually installed yet. Reading through the guide though. Slight double type on the first line. Thanks for the guide!
Hi iomthd! Welcome aboard. May I make a suggestion to you? You may want to install Manjaro into a VM (virtual machine) before installing it on your main system so you can get the feel for it before going through any unnecessary downtime due to issues that will arise as you learn. Arch-based stuff is still new to me and using a VM has helped me tremendously. I hope this helps you out in your new adventure with Manjaro-Linux. :D
