It is news to me that there exists a latex package manager for Arch Linux, so now you do not need to manually install anything latex related. You can enter the package manager and it works in a similar way to apt-get on Ubuntu/Debian/.
Get the following pacakge from AUR, texlive-localmanager-git or you can use yaourt/packer to install it. Stay away from the non git version it exits with an error as of now.
After you have done installing run, tllocalmgr. Then type,
install <package name>
Run texhash as super user to refresh the hashes. The packages should be available to you now, thanks to fellow archers!

The ALC1150 chip on this motherboard fails to mix all channels played at it a simple,
Works but fails in mixing and does not take in SND_PCM_FORMAT_FLOAT inputs(may be because it is writing directly to the card’s buffer which doesn’t support float inputs). The fix is to use dmix but a lot of the dmix setups I used didn’t work at all, all ended in “can’t open output” errors. Put the following in /etc/asound.conf and it’ll work like a charm, no need for sound servers! It is a modified version of the conf found in http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/ALSA.
