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.

Not sure what to think.

On the Archstrike web site, there was only one iso to download, 2021.12.31-x86_64. It is an installation dist. None of the other versions could be found, nor could a live iso or an ova image be located (as referred to on their wiki page). Looked at a variety of mirrors with the same result.

Installed, then updated the os (pacman -Syy followed by pacman -Syu.). After reboot, using the default admin account, tried to run a number of programs. None would run. Tried launching via the terminal with and without sudo and received responses that the programs could not be located.

Going to try a few more things, (reinstall, not updating and running as root) but not looking very promising at this stage of the game.
