I'm going to install arch linux as my primary os any advice or tips?
install network manager then run nmtui, it works with both WPA(2) and WEP.
remember to install a daemon to automount usbs and such
when you are an arch user, you have a duty to shitpost on this board at least twice a day
>he fell for the meme distro
Enjoy wasting your time in timesink OS
dont listen to the idiots that just spout the "it wastes all your time" meme. It's not even as complex to setup than gentoo and no, its not going to break itself on you unless you are doing some really retarded shit, but like most distros, if you fuck around with shit you don't know, you can fuck shit up. There are legitimate complaints about the distro but it being "too complex" or "taking too much time" are not valid ones, just excuses for stupidity and shitposters using overused memes.
>being this retarded
Once it's installed it's one of the most comfortable distros I've used. The AUR has almost everything you could need and is pretty much always up to date.
This. It's easier and faster.
Also once your done give a read-through to the gentoo and LFS guides to get a good grasp of the whole partition - chroot - install cocept. Arch simplifies everything with bash scripts. The first time I installed arch I just mindlessly obeyed the wiki and didn't really get it. Its useful knowledge for repairing damaged systems or testing stuff in a chrooted jailed environment.
>It's easier and faster.
No way it's faster. My system with openbox starts literally instantly.
What are the good things you get from Gentoo?
