Installing the base system

Errors when running pacstrap

(PGP)Key "..." could not be imported

error: linux-api-headers: key "F990EB20FAEsomhing" is unknown

Import PGP key EAE999BD, "Allan McRae <>", created on 2011-06-03? [Y/n]

error: key "Allan McRae <>" could not be imported

Can be due to incorrect date, to fix set the time manually or use ntpd -qg to use the network to set the time.(a case)

Key import fails otherwise

One solution is to change the core repo in /etc/pacman.conf from SigLevel = PackageRequired to SigLevel = Optional TrustAll But that would decrease security by a lot.
