syslinux install

Need to install the gptfdisk package before the syslinux-install_update -i -a -m command will work.

pacman -S gptfdisk

hardwired network

Network interface is enp2s1.

Turn on dhcp:

# systemctl enable dhcpcd@enp2s1.service

boot firmware error message

Install the wireless interface’s firmware with:

pacman -S ipw2200-fw

Or, if you won’t be using the wireless interface, add to /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf

blacklist ipw2200

to get rid of the boot message about failing to install the firmware.
