Good stuff! A key step you forgot to mention was edit the sudoers file. But apart from that a great video Excellent video!! Thanks so much for your time putting this together. One thing I learned from another video is that when you install the base system, you can also install audacious, asunder etc… It seems to work for the person doing the video so that after installing xorg and a DE, apps that he needed were already installed. What bios? Modik! What is that Enjoyed the video on the arch install, nice job as always UEFI is only hard to set up if you cling to GRUB. Look at rEFInd as an alternative. Making it look good is easy. Setup is easy, and when done right, it auto-detects any bootable partition or partition with a valid kernel, so you can select it at boot. I do have 1 question.. What did you use to boot the Laptop? I will have to say that was a very well thought out, informative and enjoyable Installation that I have ever seen. Very well put together and easy to follow…. I have been on Linux for 2 years of so and have tried several Distro's in that time. I use Mint 18.3 as my daily driver, a MX Linux-18 as my TV/Recorder, Solus, Manjaro. The last two I play with… Lol,,, I like Manjaro alot and plan to keep…I have a Ubuntu Server that is my file server for my music and movies etc… But I will have to say that your video has given me something to think about… I would like to see how you finish the install… I can read stuff but it works better if I can see how it is done, I'm visual that way, just works better for me… 😀Thanks for your work…LLAP I have Arch on a ThinkPad W530. Nvidia Optimus was a nightmare. But its been the same installation since January. knocks on wood I liked very much observing your expertise with the Arch Linux Install. I watch all the Arch Linux installs noting that I might see something new with any of them. Everyone follows the Arch Linux install with little deviation at first and as you learn the install you can initiate any number of deviations that are found to result in your favorite install. Therefore, your Arch installs adds to the valuable contributions of those who show the install. I noted that you used the dd command to wipe out sda prior to you using cfdisk to put your two partitions together. Very nice. Although this could have been done with cfdisk this is an example of a deviation that might be valuable to those trying to learn. Also, you took the install right to GUI which further made it an excellent tutorial. Many do the install and tell you to proceed from there where the entire tutorial might be in vain for the new comer. When I finish my Arch install I firstly check my home directory, click F3 to see if it splits, fix the sudo file, fix the timeout in grub, find a Arch wallpaper and then find a cool grub theme. After that, I install yay. After yay, I install gksu for the log in for octopi and install octopi with yay. After that, I configure wireless, and install cups to connect my printer. You must understand that my install is slightly different where I install mate mate-extra, lxdm and xorg along with the base packages in pacstrap. You can actually add all your software in the pacstrap step although many do not realize this.http://magicianandexorcist.org/arch.htmlI appreciated your install tutorial where yet another install adds to the overall Linux community a trulysplendid take on the Arch Install. My sincere compliments on the video. I really liked it. A quick way to find GB locale inside nano: ctrl+w(search) type GB press enter will take you straight to it .. uncomment etc Can you run a history of your commands and post it? Thanks Thank you. Thinkpads are great for Linux installs. I’ve stopped using swap partitions long time ago! Much easier to just use a swapfile as you can easily resize it as you need As a long term Arch user, installing arch is a good way to learn GNU/Linux, but using Debian is way more practical, unless you really have an insatiable hardon for pacman Comments are closed.
