I wanted to share how I bootstrap a 99.9% pure Arch Linux system when I don't
have a whole weekend to go through the installation manual again. Antergos (https://antergos.com) is an Arch distribution that uses Arch's repos and adds
one of its own.
How long have you been using Antergos? Would you know if they, also, made updating the Linux kernels easier as well? I know that Manjaro does by running mkinitcpio, grub-mkconfig, and grub-install (as part of the post-installation script of the system upgrade).

I don't particularly care for the changes they make. While the Antergos installer allows you to choose which desktop you want, I choose the command line install. That make setting up things like full disk encryption on LVM
easy. After I boot into the newly installed system, I remove the Antergosrepo
entry in the Pacman config, and disable the 10_antergos in favor of10_linux in
After that, I install the rest of the packages I want manually knowing that Antergos won't be applying their treatment to it. For example, their
theme is horribly broken and buggy so it's nice to not have to deal withit.
Just thought I'd share. Hopefully this saves someone some time.
I'm not sure where you're going with this. I can install a fresh Archlinux command line install in about 20 minutes or less. Then, if not using old hardware, it takes about 5 minutes more to be up and running with a complete desktop environment. Why in the world would it take you an entire weekend? This
is Archlinux, not Gentoo. :)

Good for you on installing it in 20 minutes or less. Would you prefer
a certificate, or a medal?
that out of the kindness of my heart. Simply put, it doesn't take an entire weekend to install Archlinux. It was necessary to correct your asinine statements in a quick fashion.
"An entire weekend". This is known as an exaggeration.worse
Exaggeration - Noun - A statement that represents something as better or
than it really is.
Helpful - Adjective - Giving or ready to give help.
You, Nick, are not being helpful.
You, one the other hand, felt it necessary to derail the point of thethread by
making a desperate grab for attention and bragging about how fast you can install a Linux distribution. When called out on it, you defend youractions by
claiming you are "correcting my asinine statements". This, Nick, does not contribute to the thread. It makes you look like an ass.
I won't waste any more time responding until you can learn what beinghelpful
is (you're doing it wrong), actually try it for yourself, and can learn howto
contribute to a converstation in a civilized, non-trollish fasion.
