alright bros, show me what you got.
That's more gentoo, arch has had an installer for years now
I don't hate it, I just don't have a reason to use it when i can have a stable and reliable distro instead
Ubuntu a shit. Replace it with Opensuse.
>>93661316Here you are
>doesn't clean cache automatically>doesn't update keyrings automaticallyPAC-MAAAAAAAAAAAAN
>>93662413Does it have any redeeming quality other than speed?
>>93662512no. also, debian has nala which is literally as fast if not faster than pacman, so arch literally has no point.
i farted once and arch linux called me a communist
i just wish there could be an script to make debian just works like ubuntuthey patch do many stuff and have better defaults
>>93662551>nalaIt's pretty much deadhttps://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/we2v51/comment/iinjxjs/
>>93662889uh, what do you mean by dead? it literally works. projects that work don't need new commits every single second of every single day. you know this, right? by that logic tons of things on your computer are "dead". so what do you mean by dead?
My LAN driver doesnt work in Arch. exact same one works perfectly in Debian. i dont know why
>>93662551doesn't work on Debian stable bullseye
>>93663592>>93663549Why do so many glowniggers keep injecting their furry diaper fetish into their demoralization images, you do know your outing yourself?
>>93663614it's to demoralize people like you
>>93663559sure does, im on debian stable right now
>>93661316this isn't hard
>>93661316>ubuntunahmint is better.
>>93663480yeah. real people use BSD.
>>93663773Mint Cinnamon is very comfy and I can run dos games easily on it. Ubuntu has snap nuff said
>>93663875yep thats why i dualboot it. max payne runs beautifully on it. so does scummvm so i can play the neverhood.
>>93663942>thats why i dualboot it.dualboot mint and windows I assume? What software do you need it to run if so?
>>93663995uh, windows? just have windows point to grub i forget the command. If you can help me find it all I find is shit that goes through the menu.
>>93663809>screwing over winbabbies and keeping linux exclusivebretty based ngl
something somethingever wonder why
wait is there malware in AUR? any examples?
>>93664175I will be honest anon I have not dual booted besides testing a usb boot iso.>just have windows point to grub i forget the command.you are just selecting what to boot off of in grub it doesnt open for me on launch because I only run mint
>>93661333>That's more gentoo, arch has had an installer for years nowthis, also it's more like building your own home than just the pool. At the end of the day it's your choice. If you constructed a hut that's on you.
>>93661316>loopback>loopback>loopback>loopbackYeah, good old snapbuntu
Why everybody pretends that using arch is some arcane knowledge? Well, you certanly need to know a little more about your computer, but if you are not a grandma you'll learn it eventually anyway. Arch doesn't require you to build the whole system from scratch, you just choose what building blocks you want and it does everything for you, and some things (like systemd) are already there and don't require your attention.
>>93667193they need to feel superior somehow. their copes are arch breaking and pretending it's gentoo
>>93667214Gentoo being source based has always had the nice effect of gatekeeping people who should be nowhere near a DIY distro.
>>93661316It takes me 10 mins to install Arch and it just works.
I’ve used arch for a long time and I don’t get where these retarded memes come from. My stuff has pretty much just worked. If you can’t spend a minute reading pacman’s output then no it’s not going to be mouth breather friendly. The arch wiki is one of the few things on Linux that rivals Microsoft in terms of documentation.
The memes show their age. They should be updated to take the steamdeck into account.
>>93667687>I don’t get where these retarded memes come from.Most of them seem to mock elitism, bleeding-edge instability and the apparent need to hand-pick various system utilities.
>>93661316this meme would be better if it was windows instead of ubuntu
Lol I use arch and it's very simple and easy. Installs faster than Ubuntu
>>93661316I made the original of this image then some /g/ sperg put retard OS larp on it. Feels bad man.
Arch is just a stepping stone. You install it and use it for a while, you learn a lot, you fix it when it breaks etc.. But eventually, it breaks in a way that you just cant be fucking bothered to fix, so you go use something else.>t.used Arch for 2 years, now use Fedora
>>93661316Both are for nigger. Real man use Fedora because it’s just work.
>>93671839no i made the original
>>93661316all of this hate is outdatedarch has snapper and AUR helpersAUR packages are compiled, so it's kinda like Gentoo
>>93671934Your next and final hop will be when you get tired of upgrading your desktop every 6 months.
>>93663461define "LAN driver"
>>93667687>documentationThat's why I use arch, honestly. No other distros compare.
>>93671934>you learn a lotI didn't learn much as it's a basic binary distro. I just slapped in packages until I got the setup I needed, simple as.>you fix it when it breaks etc..Didn't break.>t.used Arch for 2 years, now use FedoraUsed Fedora to bootstrap my current PC but installed Arch almost immediately after as Fedora was so alien to me.Tried Fedora out of curiosity but it wasn't a just works system as I thought it would be.>>93671987AUR is a mess.
>>93671934>this is how it worked for me so this is how it works for everyoneok nigger. i've used gentoo or two years now and have loved every minute of it. i used fedora just the other day when i got a new graphics card and it was so fucking shit i had to install gentoo the next day. the package manager is shit, wayland is so bad i couldn't even change the refresh rate in a config file, i had to use gnome settings, what a TERRIBLE system.
>>93672123i've never, ever had a package from the AUR be either a virus or not work, with the exception of librewolf and that was only a GPG key problem. GTFO with your bs lies
>>93672244snap is just better
>>93667587win + returnpacman -S firefox
>>93672244The only thing I wanted from AUR was some legacy game and it didn't compile as it was last updated 20 years ago.Wasn't the old and obscure shit the point of AUR?
>>93663809chad gatekeeper>redhat basically runs the show around linuxbesides KVM/qemu name ONE good thing redhat has done for linucks
>>93671934pretty based meme but at the end it should be about realizing linux is a waste of time and going back to windows
>>93672227>he doesnt know how to install Fedora with X
>>93672257>snap is just bett-ACK!snaps are so shit, broken and sandboxing is retarded>>93672292>why didn't this 20 year old game compile on my modern operating syst-ACK!dependencies change, it probably requires many old, now unusable dependencies. go find a ubuntu version from 20 years ago and compile it there, or find a binary, retard. that's not the AUR's fault>>93672440>must defend redha-ACK!just admit it's shit. wayland is shit and fedora should just use x.org, a window system that works perfectly fine and has zero reason to be replaced. as for installing x, sure i could just dnf install it (shit package manager btw) but i shouldn't have to have two window systems installed when i just wanna use one, and most people wanna use x anyway. >just uninstall waylandif i have to gut out the system at that point i might as well just use an actually good OS :)
>>93667587I look like this and do this
>>93672619>I look like this and do this
>>93672306this is a FOSS board, paypigs fuck off
>>93672675windows nearly is free u can buy a key on g2n for like $2
>>93672717you pay for windows with your soul
>>93672717i mean g2a
>>93662512No, but as a downside you can add being the most insecure package managers compated to any other big one like dnf or apt
>>93672733you pay for linux with your soul when it turns you into a satanic troon
well using arch to learn how linux works is important, unlike using a ready made product like good goy
>>93672784Linux is based on christian valuesMicrosoft is made by pedo satan worshipper Bill Gates and puts gaypride on your search bar without your consent
>>93672578>being this mad about shitposts
>>93672578>>if i have to gut out the system at that point i might as well just use an actually good OS :)>if i have to install a package I might as well use Arch or Gentoo bro
>>93662381wow you copy pasted commands from the wikiyou must be really eliteeveryone who doesn't do it must have been filtered by this monumental task
>>93662512funny name :D
>>93672976This, I tried to install a Linux distro once, it's literally just "hurr durr copy paste all these command lines". Ok? Why? Can't I just press a button and have it install everything? Why do freetards like complicating shit needlessly?
>>93672717>leasing your software
>>93672976yeah, if you're too retarded to copy commands you're too retarded to use a computer>>93672878>yeah i think we should kill babies>uhhh wtf?>LOL >being this mad at my heckin epic shitpost >lel 4hinz shiggydiggy amairate?>>93672916if i have too uninstall half the base system and replace it then yes, i might as well use a different system
Me enjoying NixOS
>>93663875Hero fellow mint cinnamon chad. We should compare penis sizes later
>>93663875>I can run dos games easily on itWhat does this mean? Do you not just use DOSbox?
>>93673234now without trolling, name on thing
>>93673353>what's 2+2?>and no, don't give me 4, give me a REAL answer
>>93673353https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat#Programs_and_projectsI'm sure you use some of these
>>93673384what's good about systemd that makes it better than the init systems that came before it? KVM/QEMU is good because its better than every other virtualiser. whats BETTER about systemd?
>>93673051>saying fedora is better than windows is comparable to saying we should kill babiesgo outside you pathetic worm
>>93673409i don't know because i'm not a hacker, but practically all Linux distros chose to adopt it, so it must be good. The few that don't, either do so out of principle, or offer systemd as an option.
>>93673408X.org, xorg was already there before too, they just contributed. so KVM and partial contributions to xorg, is that it? that's hardly 'running the show' most users dont use KVM, and xorg or something adjacent would've been made anyway
>>93673485They also contribute a lot to freedesktop.org and the linux foundation, and build lots of enterprise shit for lunix
>>93673482that's a fallacious argument to say 'many people use it so it must be good', see: windows and MacOS>>93673435my point isn't that you're akin to a baby killer, the point is that its stupid to make a statement then fall back on 'its just a shitpost bro' when someone points out how retarded the post is.
>>93661316based>snap install mysql-workbenchit could be that easy but instead elitists choose suffering
>>93673589if you're gonna bring up fallacies, then let's point out that you're the one seemingly deciding what qualifies as "good" or what "running the show" means. also, the fact you're suggesting Windows and macOS = bad, is a fallacy in itself.
>>93673589People are laughing at you for getting this mad over shitposts, that seems to be going over your head.Perhaps another hotpocket will sooth your autistic rage anon?
>>93673781>if you're gonna bring up fallacies, then let's point out that you're the one seemingly deciding what qualifies as "good" or what "running the show" means. also, the fact you're suggesting Windows and macOS = bad, is a fallacy in itself.Nobody 'runs the show' for linux, that's the point. and yes, windows and mac are bad and if you dont think so GTFO out of /g/
>>93673942>still not getting itThe anger you have, that's the entertainment. Not pretending to be retarded.Also, reflect on what set you off. Someone telling their story on why they left Arch for Fedora. Its fucking hilarious that you got mad over that.
>>93674013no, i'm fully aware it a rage bait comic made to get yous, i'm just saying its retarded
>>93673913>and yes, windows and mac are bad and if you dont think so GTFO out of /g/Right, so your beloved argumentum ad populum fallacy only works one way? When the majority of the population thinks Windows and MacOS are good, it's a fallacy. But when the default opinion on /g/ is that Windows and MacOS are bad, not only is it no longer a fallacy, but a fact you're not allowed to dispute? How convenient.
>>93674160look i admit it, i said fallacy because it sounded cool, okay? will you shut the fuck up now nigger?
>>93672976>wow you copy pasted commands from the wikistill smarter than people like you who failed even at that lmao
>>93661316>>93663480>>93663502>>93663514>>93663609>>93663630you spergs really do need a lot of words to shit on a decent OS

>>93662381>GRUBAll distros fail at that. Compile your own EFI-stub kernel and use an unencrypted rootfs, shit just works.
>>93675349on Arch you don't need to compile your own kernel for EFISTUB, not sure about other distros.
>>93674916this, they say arch waste your time but they sure do waste a lot of their own writing a wall of text nobody will read
