Followed the instructions to install pacman on the host (live CD).
Here is the history:
<pre>    1  alias wget='wget --trust-server-names'
    2  ARCH=x86_64
    3  base_chroot=/tmp
    4  mkdir ${base_chroot}/archlinux
    5  cd ${base_chroot}/archlinux
    6  wget http://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/$ARCH/pacman/download/
    7  wget http://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/any/pacman-mirrorlist/download/
    8  for software_name in libfetch libarchive openssl xz expat ; do wget http://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/$ARCH/${software_name}/download/ ; done
    9  for f in *.tar.gz ; do tar xzvf $f ; done
  10  export PATH=${base_chroot}/archlinux/usr/bin:$PATH
  11  export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${base_chroot}/archlinux/usr/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
  12  alias pacman="pacman --config ${base_chroot}/archlinux/etc/pacman.conf"
  13  cd /
  14  for f in /tmp/archlinux/pacman-*pkg.tar.gz ; do  tar xzf $f; done</pre>
Problem is pacman doesn't run:
<pre># pacman
pacman: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.14' not found (required by /tmp/archlinux/usr/lib/libalpm.so.6)</pre>
It does work however if you use v3.5.3 of pacman:

@Graysky : Thanks. I faced the same problem, and the solution you suggested worked for me as well.

I had the same problem, but I found another solution: computerA has a working arch linux install, computerB has the empty partition. Use sshfs to mount computerB:/newarch to computerA:/newarch, and run pacman from computerA (with -r of course).

1. Is "--no-check-certificate" needed for wget?

2. Article says: "If you do not mind littering your install host, you can extract all the downloaded tar balls into your root directory by running as root: ... However, keep in mind that this operation could erase some of your files, and break your system."

Why is this suggested? Wouldn't it be better and safer to put the files elsewhere and just add to $PATH again like it did in the previous section?

3. After "Finishing touches", it says: "See Beginners Guide:Configure the system. You can ignore 2.11, ..."

However, there is no 2.11... I'm guessing it meant ignore "Install bootloader"?
