In the past I have written about Antergos Linux. A great distribution based on Arch Linux. Well, it’s no more. Sadly, Antergos has been discontinued. Most Linux distributions are maintained by volunteers. Linux distros are largely free operating systems created and maintained by volunteer enthusiasts who know a lot about Linux coding. Often, as with … Continue reading “Antergos Bites the Dust”
Essentially their attitude is this: The derivative of Arch wanted their own wikis and their own forums, so they can have it. Just don’t come to us with questions. Ever.
I wish I could tell you how to do it. I’ve been confusing myself reading articles about systemd and OpenRC and cron. I’m all confused and my brain is spent. I want to run “sudo cron start” when I start my system. Alternatively, just start cron as root. Cron changes my gnome wallpaper regularly.
Download the ISO file, burn it to a DVD, boot with the DVD in the drive, and install as you would do normally. (I assume you know how to do all that. I’ll just keep breezing on.) To use all 6 CPUs on my computer, enter this at a terminal: MAKEFLAGS=”-j$(nproc)” —————- Volume up and … Continue reading “Installing Antergos Linux”
Archlinux is best, but difficult. It’s what I run. Or at least what I used to run. (Now days I run Fedora Xfce and Sabayon Xfce.) I didn’t install it with the Arch Wiki. I used YouTube videos. It worked, and I’m inside Arch writing this article. I’ve been using Arch for awhile now. I … Continue reading “Which Linux Distro is Best?”
Members of the Arch, Antergos and (especially) Manjaro communities will probably be happy to learn that I’m over here now. Xubuntu. I was at a point where I thought to experiment and I reformatted with Sabayon Linux. What I learned is that Gentoo based distributions take forever to compile and use simple software downloads. Alas, … Continue reading “Xubuntu”
I’m really disappointed by Manjaro Linux. Not the distro, but the people. The forums. The problem with rolling distributions of Linux is they can break. The cool thing about rolling distributions of Linux is you always have the latest greatest software, even if it doesn’t work.Let’s take a look at Arch and the Arch derivative … Continue reading “Disappointment in Manjaro Linux”
VirtualBox Trolls – that’s what I call them. They have a camera and Oracle Virtualbox installed, and they create a virtual desktop and install one Linux distro after another, and review it on YouTube. They’re trolls. Some of them don’t even have a camera. They just record the desktop and have a microphone. If you … Continue reading “VirtualBox Trolls”
Even though I’ve said senior Arch Linux forum members have palpable antagonism toward Arch derivatives Antergos, Apricity and Manjaro Linux, you can still easily install Arch yourself and have a regular, pure Arch system. The installer I have enjoyed is called Revenge. It is a fancy installer that draws what it needs only from the … Continue reading “Revenge: Installer for Arch Linux”
I cannot decide. There are too many options. A Microsoft Windows person would have no idea. It’s all the fault of Linux, or more properly “GNU/Linux” pronounced “Gah-New Lin-ux” or sometimes “Gah-New Lin-ox.” Much to the distress of the GNU people who provide all the software for Linux and BSD systems, nobody wants to say … Continue reading “Too Many Options”
