  • 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 "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages 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.

tried archman (2018.01 - xfce) as a live-usb on 2 computers that are over 11 years old.
arch distros usually are problematic for these computers. archman worked, and, well.
no problem connecting with wifi and wired internet.
sound worked fine.
tried the pacman and installed aisleroit solitaire fine.
did not try print.
the memory footprint after login was around 350Mb.
i only used for about 1/2 hour. not an exhaustive test; but, for an arch distro, it was a positive experience.
their forum does have a small english section

Installed archman-xfce-1801_x86_64.iso in VirtualBox. Everything was great until I got a notice that 43 updates were available. After installation and rebooting the error message popped up saying "Unrecoverable error." Went to their forum, but it was mostly in Turkish.
