Easiest Arch Linux Manual

83

Arch Linux is one of my favorite GNU/Linux distributions. However, it is not as easy to install as are Ubuntu and openSUSE. I have installed Arch Linux so many times on my systems that I have almost memorized the procedure. I have translated that process into an easy to follow tutorial that can help new Arch Linux users.

I keep this tutorial updated as I learn about problems that other users face or if I find an easier day to get the task done. There are many Ubuntu-like derivatives of Arch that make it easier to get started with Arch, but I will discourage using them.

Installing Arch without understanding some of its core components and configurations will cause more problems in future when something breaks because you don’t know how it’s set-up or how it works. So I encourage you to do a manual installation of Arch Linux and understand its internals.

I also recommend referring to the official Arch Wiki to get in-depth information about each step and process.

I have broken this article into several small pieces to address one topic at a time without intimidating you with a single long page.
