Skype being a dependency of it kind of defeats the purpose, from what I found I even had to sign in through Skype itself.

The lib32 packages give it away. No other software is stupid enough to require 32bit libraries.

I'm building a gaming rig and while I'm waiting for my windows disc to come in the mail I wanted to install arch just to say I did. Is this fucking stupid? It seems like alot of work and I don't know if it'll play nice with my hardware.
>>
>>45479649

It takes 30 minutes (depending on your download speed) and you need to type 10 commands listed on the Wiki.
Yes, it's stupid because you don't need it and because you think it will make you "hardcore" and a "hacker" for doing it. Just stop, it's cringe-worthy.

Is there any reason at all to use arch Linux over anything else?

The Arch wiki is also the best linux wiki so using arch is beneficial if you aren't confident in applying the instructions to non-arch distros

Man my / apparition mysteriously gets really bloated. I've only got about 2 GiB of free space.
>>
>>45481048
Because all the packages you install are kept even if a new version is installed. You'd think that's a waste but since you're running on hyper-bleeding-edge software, if you were to install a broken package successfully, you'd be in deep shit if you couldn't downgrade - and you can't downgrade via repos since they only hold the latest version of stuff.

No you don't understand. I don't have any cached packages right now. I cleared it all.

I want to check what's upgrading each time to catch anything that might break or change existing behaviour.

Are you sure about that? Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Oh good, I got my daily mpv update. Thanks OP.

Seriously, that and fucking youtube-dl. Every goddamn day.

What do you expect? They always have to catch up to YouTube and friends.
That's why it also has its own updater.

What do you think this is, gentoo?

It takes less than a minute anyway
also the version in the repos wasn't compiled with vapoursynth support last time I checked
>>
>>45481326
>vapoursynth
Meh.
>>
>>45478959
As a matter of fact I just did! Always scares the fuck out of me, especially when rebooting.

I know I don't have to reboot, but that's the best way for me to figure out if something broke.

Everything is still perfect though.
>>
>>45481452
Wow, no wonder people look down on Arch users.

Have you started alsa-sound? Have you checked the state of your devices in alsamixer? Do you have pulseaudio installed?

OR use a decent file system such as zfs or btrfs.

Why?

>actually being scared of an upgrade

Name one other distro, that has its users behave like that.
>>
>>45481653
The problem is that they don't have access to stable software at all so they don't have a choice but to be scared of upgrades. If only they had installed gentoo...
>>
>>45481653
how does one ultra-autist represent an entire userbase.

I bet there's a ponyfag out there somewhere that drives the same car as you.
>>
>>45481653
So you think because I, one person, do that, everyone does? No. I'm a paranoid freak, and am not a normal person, I also check for murderers in the shower every time I go to the bathroom.

I started being scared of updates while using Windows, and constantly coming back to broken drivers after the REQUIRED reboot. This didn't start with Arch. So go back to your Ubuntu hugfest and fuck off.

Clearly, Arch gives their users are reason to be scared.
It's not just one idiot.

There have been what? Two people mentioning actual problems? That doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me.

Just did OP.

I got mozilla Certificate some other thing. and also xfce whisker update

Been getting xfce updates lately. they coming back folks
>>
>>45481712
>>45481730
Sorry it was one person. One of the other problems is a firefox problem, and the other than that was a powerloss issue, that has nothing to do with the OS. Windows would be fucked if you cut the power during update too.

The only real mention of a problem was the guy with the audio issue, and alsa is a buggy piece of shit on all distros, so that's not really an Arch thing either.
>>
>>45481730
But the people not mentioning problems didn't mention they never had a problem. Absence of evidence != evidence of absence.
>>
>>45481794
Sound christian logic
>>
>>45479716
also. every program doesn't require 100 dependie son arch. I have everything I need right now an donly 612 packages.

less bloat if it matters.
also package management and AUR are great
>>
>>45481789
Alsa is fine on every distro I've tried. Hell, even pulseaudio works well everywhere - except on arch.
>>
>>45481794
This isn't a personal blog you faggot, and you're never going to be a lawyer, so stop trying your double talk bullshit.

No, I tried Arch after spending a year fucking with those trying every "fix" on the internet, and having nothing work.

The sound works perfect, and so does everything else.

why do people still use Arch? Remember kids the A in Arch stands for aspergers

I didn't say anything about X or tty, and they both work fine. Are you retarded?

that a trap? he's cute though
>>
>>45481302
Even Gentoo testing doesn't get as many retarded updates as Arch.

I use Arch cause it's close to upstream and I don't have to wait 2 years for shit because it's 'not stable', what ever the fuck 'stable' means to non-rolling release distros

Oh it's arch, meaning things can break after an update.
