ABOUT ArchEX 64bit/32bit

WHAT IS ArchEX dual?

ArchEX 64bit/32bit dual is a new (150409) Linux live DVD based on Arch Linux. Arch motto is KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). ArchEX uses kernel 3.19.3-1-ARCH (latest stable kernel) and the LXDE Desktop environment.

INSTALLED SOFTWARE
Among many other programs, Firefox 37.0.1, Gimp 2.8.14, GCC 4.9.2, 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).
Very simple!

LANGUAGE
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.

Rolling distribution
Arch Linux/ArchEX are rolling distributions, which implies that once you have installed the system on the hard drive there is no need for re-installations (which otherwise is common in the Linux world).

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
"Cutting Edge"-software and speed.

DOWNLOAD
ArchEX Linux Live DVD can be downloaded from SourceForge.net - Fast, secure and free downloads from the largest Open Source applications and software directory.

Or download ArchEX from The Swedish Linux Society server.

RaspArch for Raspberry Pi 2
RaspArch is a “remaster” of Arch Linux ARM. The original compressed system is of 231 MB. After I have added the LXDE Desktop environment, Firefox and Gimp the system increased to 665 MB. RaspArch is a “ready-to-go” ARM system. It must be installed on a Raspberry Pi 2 computer.
A member on RaspEX recently wrote this about RaspArch: I’ve used Slackware, Debian, Gentoo, Ubuntu & Arch. I prefer Arch. Ubuntu is easier to install, Arch is easier to keep up to date. You do not go through big, painful, changes every year instead you just update, once in a while, make changes if instructed. Arch has most of the benefits of Gentoo without the pain of recompiling _everything_. When you do need to build a package in Arch its painless especially if you use one of the tools that support Aur (I like yaourt). Arch avoids the politics of Debian and Ubuntu and delivers a great Linux distribution. RaspArch now brings these advantages to the PI 2.
