Arch Linux for the DIY Linux user

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 75.145.180.221] on July 18, 2008 07:03 PM
I'm somewhere in the middle between a lazy Ubuntu user and a hard core tweaker--I want to be able to tweak and configure and play around to good effect, but I need a lazy/average-man's fallback for those times when I need to do something new in a short amount of time and don't have time to learn (for example) the binary name of the configuration panel for services, or worse, which rc.? file to open/edit.


That, and I have a Broadcom wireless card.


I tried Arch for an afternoon, couldn't get my wireless working and shot it the bird and put Ubuntu back on my machine. Effort just wasn't worth it to me. Maybe one day.
