Bang goes the Arch
But ever since, the project has still been working away, and, due to some rather scary issues on Tecra with Ubuntu Maverick, I decided to give it a shot.
The install process was the same as any Arch system, and is easily followed. Once installed, and booted, straight away your given a working Openbox environment, with a generous helping of different applications, enough to satisfy most needs. After a little bit of tinkering, using the configs from my Maverick setup, I was left with this.
The speed is very good. It boots from Grub to a login in 23secs, from my 8GB CF card. The default install weighs in at about 2GB, and the desktop is snappy.
There are more applications than I really have time to talk about, so I’d encourage you to download the LiveCD, and give it a try 🙂
