Install BlackArch Linux on top of ArchLinux without gnupg / behind a proxy

I assume your curl, git, environment variables are already configured to use a proxy. But often gnupg keyservers don't work behind a proxy even if gnupg is configured to use it. The solution is to avoid using gnupg in this case.

Here is the short method when you are not using a proxy:

1

8
9
10
11
# Run https://blackarch.org/strap.sh as root and follow the instructions.
$ curl -O https://blackarch.org/strap.sh
# The SHA1 sum should match: 34b1a3698a4c971807fb1fe41463b9d25e1a4a09
$ sha1sum strap.sh
# Set execute bit
$ chmod +x strap.sh
# Run strap.sh
$ sudo ./strap.sh

And here is the method behind a proxy:
