    Re: Arch Linux is a very nice distro...

    holy thread resurrection batman!

    just installed Arch and I REALLY like it! 9gb Quantum (takes a lickin but keeps on tickin), Shuttle AN35N, Radeon 9700pro. Very snappy performance, something I've come to expect from slack based distros. Excellent WIKI.

    Version 0.7 and an immediate pacman upgrade gave me kerner 2.6.11.10. KDE 3.4 running 1280x1024. Did have some troubles trying to configure my own xorg, ended up using the hwd script which got me going. Running nice & smooooooth.

    Anyone else still running it?

    Have been using it here for a while. I like it. A good wiki. Lots of packages, updates.

    Edit: Though pacman seems a little limited, maybe it is just me.

    Pacman is the reason that Arch is sooo nice... sure there are some issues with package removal i.e. its not as easy to remove as it is to uninstall... lots of grunt work there...

    oh well.. .I love it... just not running it cause i'm on craptastic dial up...

    Re: Arch Linux is a very nice distro...

    You guys were mentioning package management so wanted to mention Frugalware, another Arch type distro with what appears to be a gui pacman interface ....
