Introduction to Arch Linux

strugee's picture

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.
