Step-by-step guide: Installing ArchLinux with the Archinstall script

Instructions for installing ArchLinux using the installation script ArchFi (and then ArchDi) is the first in a series of texts dedicated to the comparison of different ways of installing the ArchLinux distribution. This text is also an installation guide, but using the officially supported script - Archinstall. I will refrain from giving too many impressions, that remains for the third and last text in this area. I'll just say that it's a much simpler way to install ArchLinux and a minimal desktop environment offered from the list.

Instructions for installing ArchLinux using the installation script ArchFi

It's been a while since my last ArchLinux installation guide article that covered the classic installation method (reading the documentation and typing command by command until you get to a working system). The following is a new one that will describe how to install this popular Linux distribution, using the Archfi installation script, I mentioned earlier. This text will be part of a trilogy that will consist of: Archfi script, Archinstal script and finally their comparison. Somehow, it just happened that a few days ago, a new version of the Archfi script was released after less than a year and a half, so let's see how it all works (and it works :) ).

Fedora - minimal installation of KDE Plasma environment

After a while, I will talk about Fedora again, because during the previous distro-hopping , Fedora generally left a positive impression on me. I may have been a little harsh to the Gnome environment, but in any case, this distro received a passing grade. Maybe even a C+! Between versions 34 and 35, I noticed significant improvements in the package manager, ie its speed. This text brings one more thing, and that is the bash script for installing Fedora with KDE Plasma environment and all the basic programs to use.

Fedora 34 + Gnome 40 and why not to use it

During my occasional dystro-hopping, I had the opportunity to use Fedora after a long time with the new Gnome 40 version. Finely tuned operating system, with great support. It is often called the Red Hat test site, which is true. The community presented it with great enthusiasm, so I told myself to give it a go and that's how Fedora found herself on my machine.

30th anniversary of the Linux kernel

The jubilee birthday of the Linux kernel comes and goes (August 25), a miracle that changed the course of development of modern OSes. I use the word "miracle" because that's how it turned out in the end. The project, which the creator Linus Torvalds himself did not believe would come to life, is a global phenomena today. It is located all around us, the simplest example is of course the smartphone with Android. We are talking about 1.6 billion devices at the heart of which is the Linux kernel. The kernel is part of the operating systems that run our desktop computers, mainframes, supercomputers ...

Improving performance on ArchLinux

ArchLinux as a distro gives quite a lot of freedom to the end user to configure the entire system. Starting with the installation that is done from the console (there are TUI and GUI variants, but I'm talking about the basic one), through the post-installation procedure, the user has to adjust everything himself in order to have a functional system, working environment, etc. In this text, I will mention one item, and that is improving the performance of classic hard drivesI will have to quote and publish one by one, because one text cannot cover everything.

Resetting password on Windows - chntpw tool

I come back with the story again, and this time I go to the dark side ... a little. Why the dark side, you ask? Part of my job is to use Windows OS and I can't escape that. So I consider Windows the dark side because I know there is something better and of course I use that something every day. The other side of the dark side story is about computer ethics, but I had no other way out of the situation. I had to use Linux and the chntpw tool to allow myself access to one of the user accounts on one of computers at work.

Archfi - TUI installer the Arch way

I continue the story about Linux, in fact about ArchLinux to be more precise. I have already mentioned that it is a distribution for enthusiasts and certainly for those with a little more experience. When I mention experience, it means a good knowledge of console work, directory structure, partitioning, in fact the entire Linux ecosystem. In this text, I will write about a script that makes it easier to install ArchLinux. It's called Archfi and basicаlly is a TUI installer.

By the way, I use Arch Linux!

It's been a long time since I became a GNU / Linux user, which I'm proud of! I tried it out of curiosity (I hope I don't sound like a drug addict :)), and now I can't imagine everyday life without it. It’s one of those things that gets under your skin and there’s no going back! Officially or when they make me I use the other OS, but the love and affection to Linux is stronger than anything, probably that's why I write about it and always emphasize it. I've used a number of distributions so far, some just a few minutes, while others for years. The distro I use the longest and to whom I like to return after an experiment is ArchLinux, so I can afford to say that famous sentence – By the way, I use Arch Linux!
