ABOUT ArchEX 64bit Build 170327
WHAT IS ArchEX?
ArchEX 64bit is a new (170327) Linux live DVD based on Arch Linux. Arch motto is KISS ("Keep It Simple Stupid"). ArchEX uses kernel 4.10.5-1-ARCH and the LXQt Desktop environment. "LXQt is a lightweight Qt desktop environment. It will not get in your way. It will not hang or slow down your system. It is focused on being a classic desktop with a modern look and feel."
NEWS IN BUILD 170327
ArchEX Installer Calamares 3.1 is totally new. It gives you more control over the installation process. You can for example choose locale/language during the installation. I have also added GParted so you can create your partitions in advance. Watch this slideshow showing every install step when Calamares is running: http://archex.exton.net/archex-calamares.gif
Among many other programs, Firefox, Gimp, GCC, Wicd and GParted. I've added Yaourt "a Pacman frontend" and Spotify.
BOOT UP the live system and LOGIN to LXQt
When the boot process is ready you will end up as root in console mode. Run the command startx to enter X and LXQt. If you want to install new packages through Yaourt youll have to run the command "su live" before "yaourt MyNeededProgram". (You cant run Yaourt as root).
INSTALLATION to hard drive
ArchEX can be easily installed to the hard drive of those who so desire. Use ArchEX Installer (Calamares). I.e. while running the live DVD. Start Calamares from the LXQt menu >> System Tools >> ArchEX Installer. READ MORE: http://archex.exton.net/?page_id=13
INSTALL ArchEX to a USB Pen Drive with PERSISTENCE
Please read my INSTRUCTION: http://archex.exton.net/?page_id=15 All your system changes will be saved directly on the stick.
The default locale/language is English. While installing ArchEX to hard disk, you can change the default locale to Swedish or any other language.
WHO should run Arch Linux?
My answer: The system fits the "advanced" Linux user/enthusiast, who would be willing to run an occasional command from time to time. And remember: KISS.
BENEFITS of ArchEX/Arch
"Cutting Edge"-software and speed. You will for example always run the latest kernel if you upgrade ArchEX/Arch (for example) every month.
