not really, i've had tons of issues with Anarchy Linux. 

 

but if you are a noob to this just start of with Manjaro. you get all the advantages of Arch, mainly the AUR but without the pain in the butt of actually getting Arch installed.

Last I knew, Anarchy setup third party repos. I personally don't recommend the use of third party installers, and if you mention it to the Arch Community you may not get any support.

Part of running Arch is knowing what is installed on your system and how it's configured. I recommend following the official Installation Guide, https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_guide

 

You can however refer to here for Arch Based Distros / Installers. Just keep in mind the warning at the top of the page.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch-based_distributions

 

If you need something simple to setup, Manjaro does a fairly decent job of pre-configuring a Arch based Environment and has community support.

The best and most reliable way is to follow the official wiki guide https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_guide

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

yeah i know i tried it... i was doing it for 7 hours and at final step was error (i needed to start again)

You shouldn't need to restart the install process. Rather than jumping onto a installer, you would probably be better off sharing what error you ran into.

well there is a huge meme in linux community about how arch is an abomination to instal

and there is no such thing as "official" in linux

the correct term to use is "normal"

I actually decided it was time to tackle Arch yesterday, It took me a good 6 hours in total but that's mostly because I started in VMWare and took regular snapshots plus getting VMWare Tools running is a PITA.

 

I used to official guide linked to earlier in the thread, didn't really encounter anything that caused issue.

 

Once I figured out the process I moved onto bare metal and if anything it was easier, I got KDE Plasma installed and also a community repo of MESA-GIT for the latest version of AMDGPU with OpenGL & Vulkan. Had a few small issues, Discover wouldn't show any packages (missing dependency) and MESA-GIT wouldn't actually install until I manually removed Clang.

 

I'd say it probably took me 2 hours to install Arch on my PC, install Plasma, fix the missing dependency and get MESA-GIT running. Not bad for my first time ever.

 

edit - Oh yeah, the damn keyboard layout. I wasted 30 minutes trying to get an X11 config file to load the correct keymap only to discover you can change it from Settings in about 5 seconds :D

Just some advice. Don't use Discover, it doesn't handle optional dependencies, If you want a Graphical Package Manager, I would look at pamac-aur which is in the AUR / Chaotic-AUR. Otherwise you might end up in a situation where you install something and it's missing various functionality.

Mesa-Git can be iffy at times, Id recommend Mesa-TKG-GIt over it.

If you need opencl support on amd, I would look at opencl-amd, which is in the AUR and Chaotic-AUR.
 

If you plan to game with Proton and Wine, you might check out what I posted here

Yeah, I found a guide from Foss with 7 essential tweaks to make on a base Arch install, Pamac is one of them. I also intend to check out Conky & Stacer and do some customisation as well.

 

Thanks, I'll check that out today. The official Arch Wiki suggested Mesa-Git which is why I went with it. I do some video editing occasionally (Kdenlive looks great BTW), not sure if OpenCL is needed for GPU rendering or not?

 

Steam was going to be the last thing I tackle, I'll be sure to check out your thread when I get to it :)
