Strange network issues...

Post by bluesfreak72 » Sun Jul 29, 2018 2:44 pm

I attempted to install arcolinuxb-awesome-v6.9.2-2018.07.24.iso on a physical drive on a HP wx4600 Workstation. It is older hardware with an Intel Core 2 Duo and 4 GB RAM. When the installer got to running 'pacman -Sy' it errored out saying it couldn't find the database. On the LiveCD, I tried numerous websites and was only able to bring up Google and Facebook. I pinged all the sites I tried in the browser. I tried pamac and it also couldn't find the database. Google and Facebook were the only 2 sites that would return packets. I've tried other Arch based distros (Arch, Manjaro, Antergos, etc...) and all have the same issue. I have 2 other distros (Funtoo and Nixos) on this machine where the network works as it should. I've been banging my head on google and any other search engine I can think of to try to figure this out with no joy. I really want to check Arco out. Any assistance with this will be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to reply with any questions you may have.
