ABOUT ArchEX 64bit/32bit
WHAT IS ArchEX dual?
ArchEX 64bit/32bit dual is a new (131206) Linux live DVD based on Arch Linux. Arch motto is KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). ArchEX uses kernel 3.12.3-1-ARCH (latest stable kernel) and the LXDE Desktop environment.
Among many other programs, Firefox 25.0.1, Gimp, Wicd and GParted - see this package LIST.
LOG IN to LXDE
When starting up ArchEX från DVD or USB stick you will first have to choose if you want to run the 64bit version or the 32bit version of ArchEX. When the boot process is ready you will end up as root (superuser) in console mode. Run the command startx to enter X and LXDE.
Wicd Network Manager
When you are in X you will see this Wicd error message. Open up LXTerminal and run the command wicd. Then start up Wicd Network Manager if you need to configure a wireless network connection.
INSTALLATION to hard drive
ArchEX can easily be installed to hard drive of those who so desire. Use ArchEX Installer. I.e. while running ArchEX live from the DVD. Read this INSTRUCTION.
Install ArchEX to a USB Pen Drive
Can be done with the dd-command. Please read this instruction.
Program Management in Arch Linux
Arch Linux uses a proprietary system called Pacman. It is similar to that found in CRUX Linux. Read about Pacman.
You can also read all the documentation on Arch Linux. Four commands are basically the only ones you need to use:
1) pacman -Sy (update the packages database)
2) pacman -Syu (upgrading the whole system)
3) pacman -S MyUsefulProgram (the package installation command)
4) pacman -R UnnecessaryProgram (uninstall a package).
Support Default locale/language is English. After installing ArchEX to hard drive, you can easily change the default locale to Swedish or any other language.
WHO should run Arch Linux?
My answer: The system fits the "advanced" Linux user/enthusiast, who would be willing to run an occasional command from time to time.
BENEFITS of ArchEX/Arch Linux
