    Archbang-Artix and Artix: you have done an extraordinary job creating such a excellent free Linux distro, and I want to thank you for that! I have tried both, Archbang-Artix and Artix, Open-RC, October and November 2017 releases, and they work flawlessly. A hint, just install the base w/o graphical userinterface (Artix) and then do the install job by hand: A quick road to success with OpenRC for newbies: ------------------------------------------------ $ sudo pacman -Syu $ sudo pacman -S xfce4 xorg ttf-dejavu $ pacman -S sddm //(Artix) $ pacman -S lxdm //(Archbang; lxdm!) How to configure the display manager? ------------------------------------- $ sudo pacman -S displaymanager-openrc $ sudo vi /etc/conf.d/xdm //(set sddm, lxdm... instead of xdm) $ sudo rc-update add xdm default Reboot, success. Some steps: X11 forwarding: sudo vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config --> X11Forwarding yes Install some nice tools and things: ----------------------------------- sudo pacman -S net-tools sudo pacman -S xapps sudo pacman -S xorg-xclock sudo pacman -S artix-backgrounds gnome-backgrounds mate-background sudo pacman -S libreoffice-fresh sudo pacman -S libreoffice-fresh-en-GB libreoffice-fresh-de libreoffice-fresh-fr sudo pacman -S make cmake gcc python3 sudo pacman -S eclipse-cpp This got me a fully working system with which I can continue..... I'm now on a fresh install and can continue where Manjaro OpenRC left me. Please move that post to whatever place that suites your purpose best. Once again, THANK YOU! Andre, 06-NOV-2017

    This is an excellent fast and solid distro! I recommend this for anyone needing arch based setup. I do have a few grudges, the new builds don't have gallium 4.0 as default in mesa, glxinfo | grep OpenGL doesn't even work. aside from this major thing for me, I can't give it a full 5 stars. I do like the design though and simplicity w/openbox included, and I do hope they patch the mesa for gallium 4.0 out of the box

    I love Arch, and this makes a quick installation a breeze! I had it going on an old laptop in minutes!
