No base group anymore.

The base group has been replaced by a metapackage of the same name, we advise users to install this package (pacman -Syu base), as it is effectively mandatory from now on.

Users requesting support are expected to be running a system with the base package.

Addendum: Be aware that base as it stands does not currently contain:

  • A kernel
  • An editor
  • Filesystem tools (e.g. e2fsprogs) ... and other software that you might expect. You will have to install these separately on new installations.
