  • Select view:
  • 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.

I've been using archbang for years and its stability is never let me down. A few weeks ago i installed on an old pc, it went smooth and fast. I recommend using automated system and never try to install such programs like grub manually if you don't know what you're doing.

What i like most on archbang that is comes with minimal. Only a browser and terminal. If you love the simplicity and building the system by yourself then this is the best. After installation, you must install gvfs package to access other partitions of your hard drive.

Overall, archbang is the best choice among arch based distros.

I installed AB on hardware so I can hit the ground running with
Archlinux. Great light-weigth distro that uses 200MB of ram when I
boot into my daily and visually-OK i3 session. I imagine it is
also nice as an live-usb due to openbox with a good conky.

It will be a 10/10 (for me) when,

-> The great text-based installer helper is improved to cover
small issues:

- Add ability (or a hint how) to always `exit` a menu without
closing the installer

- Grub did not automatically install, whereas the most basic
`grub-install /dev/sdX` command worked for me. Except...

- ... A bug is triggered after manual grub install, making the
installer non responsive. So I had to set passwords etc. first,
then install GRUB and crash out of the installer.

-> Openbox is perhaps more intuitive, but my theoretical 10/10
distro ships with (an option for) i3.

-> Sound did not work `out the box` via Displayport. A Switch to
the Nvidia drivers fixed it.

Miscellaneous items

1. `neofetch` does not recognize AB, but "sees" Arch linux
2. The flowers wallpaper attrackted me more than it should have
3. Nice purple/flower default theme
4. The website has a certain je'ne sais quoi... joi de vivre
5. I will install it on my laptop for work as well.

Hardware:
+ Ryzen 3500
+ 4x4 GB ram
+ Nvidia 1050TI
+ Some Asrock Motherboard
+ Samsung Nvme M.2 ssd

I installed on a Aspire One netbook. Twice. First time Grub failed to install, Tried again, installing Syslinux as bootloader. Now boots and runs. Runs very fast, perfect distro for this netbook. Install what you need.
