the new klibc free mkinitcpio, a lot of new code in archboot setup script to support

new name scheme of linux utilities.

- Due to the many changes bugs might slipped into setup,

so please report them immediatly if you find them.

Merci pour l'info. Il faut savoir que l'un des avantages d'Arch Linux c'est le rolling release, on n'est pas obligés de réinstaller à chaque fois. Les mises à jour sont quotidiennes et nous permettent d'avoir les derniers paquets même si c'est pas stable à chaque fois.

Personnellement, lors de la dernière mise à jour complète du système j'ai eu des soucis avec l'update de KDE4, pacman avait du mal avec la résolution des dépendances, il m'a fallu lui donner un petit coup de pouce.
