An introduction to Arch Linux - why it's awesome, how to use the tools that it provides, and how to interact with the community.
The presentation will roughly cover:
- The Arch Way (basic philosophy of the distro, etc.)
- A basic outline of the system installation procedure
- How to use pacman, the PACkage MANager, and the AUR, the Arch User Repository (where you get software not in the official repos)
- How to engage with the community/get help (and not get flamed)
And of course, no distro presentation would be complete without free installation CDs.
I've been using Arch for about a year now, and am excited to talk about it. I consider myself an experienced Arch user. The presentation will run in a 50-minute timeslot.
