Arch Linux

Last Update: 2019-07-17 02:20 UTC


Arch Linux is an independently developed, x86_64-optimised Linux distribution targeted at competent Linux users. It uses 'pacman', its home-grown package manager, to provide updates to the latest software applications with full dependency tracking. Operating on a rolling release system, Arch can be installed from a CD image or via an FTP server. The default install provides a solid base that enables users to create a custom installation. In addition, the Arch Build System (ABS) provides a way to easily build new packages, modify the configuration of stock packages, and share these packages with other users via the Arch Linux user repository.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 16 (577), 6 months: 16 (579), 3 months: 16 (596), 4 weeks: 16 (599), 1 week: 21 (547)

Average visitor rating: 9.35/10 from 304 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view: Major packages only (52) All tracked packages (226)
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Finally arrived at Arch.
I've been running it in Virtualbox since a long time, cause I doubted rolling release could really work.

First it works.

Quality of software is awesome.

Youre are supposed to be able to read the wikis, asking stupid questions will not get you a positive echo.

By the way: Even when I was still using mint, i used to read the arch wikis because of their quality.

Mint: thats was a cool out of the box experience years ago, not anymore. If I need Samba and must read the complete doku in order to fix it - why not use arch in the first place.

KVM/Qemu on mint was also a learn it yourself experience.

Arch has a huge user-archive (AUR) with packages of varying, usually high quality.

Next I want to learn how to build packages.

All in all, I'm fascinated how smooth arch is running.

Best distro for development! This is fully customizable system which allow you to build anything what you need.

Cons:
- Hard manual install
- Lack of drivers for Intel GPUs

Pros:
- Absolute Customization.
- High performance.
- Very nice wiki
- There many packages from sources and from other distros which you can get using AUR.

I prefer Arch over all distributions except Manjaro(since I consider and treat Manjaro just as a stable version of Arch). The best distribution I've ever used. I've used ~25 distributions but stuck on Arch. Currently using Manjaro that offers me same advance installation and customization with pacstrap(using pacman-install-scripts). After all I appreciate this distribution much.

Arch wiki is the best Linux Wiki available online.
Arch is free and works very well for all Desktop Environments including top 3, Gnome, KDE and cinnamon.
Pacstrap is the most advance Linux Package manager.

Just love it, since first install. Arch is my best experience ever.
