As you can notice, there are various tutorials in the net for the keyword “Arch installation”. As an Arch user, I will recommmend you to take a look at the Arch wiki for such an installation progess instead. So what is the purpose of this post? You may ask.
First of all, this post serves as a snippset for my arch installation. I don’t want to forget anything esstensial for my daily workflow incase I have to make a complete reinstall. Secondly, as personalized as this installation guide may seems, it may help new users in some ways.
Now let’s get started:
/dev/nvme0n1 should be replaced with /dev/sda depending on different hardware.
Setting up network
1. EFI partition
mkfs.fat -F32 /dev/nvme0n1p1
2. Activate swap
3. System partition
Mount and setting up
$ mount /dev/nvme0n1p3 /mnt
$ mkdir /mnt/boot
$ mount /dev/nvme0n1p1 /mnt/boot
Install light package to control brightness. It works better than xbacklight and supports Wayland.
sudo pacman -S xfce4 xfce4-goodies
That’s pretty much the whole installation of your Arch Linux system. You can customize your OS more later such as things like ricing,… The fun has just begun. Here are some screenshots of my machine over time.
