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
Among many other programs, Firefox 37.0.1, Gimp
2.8.14, GCC 4.9.2, Wicd and GParted - see this package
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
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
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
4) pacman -R UnnecessaryProgram (uninstall a
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.
Arch Linux/ArchEX are rolling
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.
ArchEX Linux Live DVD can be downloaded from SourceForge.net
- Fast, secure and free downloads from the
largest Open Source applications and software
Or download ArchEX from The
Swedish Linux Society server.

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.
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.
