Based on Arch Linux and made to be a better out of the box experience.
Inspired by CrunchBang Linux
Part of my 2011-08-12 Linux testing nightmare.
My pre-installation notes:
Super-tfor a terminal
- set up the clock
- prep the HDD
- configure (root pass, add a user)
- install GRUB
sudo passwd rootor the default password is 'root'.
- The installer does this.
The installer guided me through all of this, all I needed to know was how to get a terminal and begin the install. Shouldn't the first run already do this, or shouldn't there be a desktop icon? Oh hell, are they doing things "the Arch way" ?
Couldn't delete an old
ldlinux.sysoff of my USB, so I reformatted (ext2), which took a long time.
A bit too braindead, no dependency resolution..

- failed to find the usb when booting
safe mode also fails

Waiting 30 seconds for device
- Looks and feels good.
- Simple and somewhat 'simple' (nearly retarded) text install.
- Had to not bother with any of my data partitions, it was too retarded. I'll do that in fstab manually. Editing fstab was easily done with the installer.
- No 'user' group was made.
- Console root login tries to launch X.. what the fuck?
- creating a new user does nothing, no setup. I had to edit
~/.initrcto add openbox. So this needs serious tweaking!
- my first
pacman -Sy wineneeded an upgrade, then
pacman doesn't fucking resolve dependencies?!?!
- I tried installing Firefox and Midori, and they downloaded and installed, and with some other software, but both wouldn't actually start up.
gnome-packagekit doesn't actually install anything GUI .. what the fuck is going on?
Checking out CTKArch.
