Got Arch installed yay!
Last night, at 11:30pm I had a full working Arch system with XFCE running and wireless. After two minor hiccups--creating a user, and an xorg problem both which were very quickly solved (to my delight and surprise) I was staring at the XFCE desktop at the right resolution. Installed Firefox and I was browsing for a few minutes.
I was expecting a huge headache with wireless. In fact, getting wireless to work on Debian Lenny was much more of a hassle than Arch.
Still need to set up my settings the way I want them, and install the nVidia drivers.
I can't wait to play around with it more to see if it really is speedier than Lenny, or Ubuntu. This is on my old PII
I'm absolutely ecstatic that I got this up and running in just a few hours.(instead of a few days which is how long I expected it to take) Tried to tell a co-worker about it and my hubby...Both looked at me as if I was crazy....I just had to tell someone...figured everyone here would understand
