Arch Linux is a great distribution for intermediate users looking to dig into Linux a bit more and essentially roll your own fast, stable, super-personalized distro.
Arch linux is using the 'pacman' package manager to install/remove/update... If you want to install/update a package use the '-S' options (example 'sudo pacman -S emacs'), but you could also upgrade all your installed packages just with 'sudo pacman -Syu'.
Here you got some pacman options link, and for further details, look at this link.
If this article looks familiar, it's because we've posted it before!
However, Arch recently changed its installation process quite a bit, making our old guide outdated.
Due to the popularity of this guide, we've updated it to work with Arch's new process, so we can all keep getting our Arch fix (and hopefully introduce a few new users to the OS of their dreams).
Linux is popular for a number of reasons, but high on that list is the fact that, with Linux, you have a lot more power to tweak your OS to your liking.You also have the opportunity to learn more about the way computers and operating systems work.While Ubuntu certainly fits this bill (when compared with Windows or Mac OS), intermediate Linux users may be itching to try something new.If you're familiar with something like Ubuntu and are comfortable with the basic ideas of command line work and configuration files, read on, because Arch Linux is a great next step. The first half describes the philosophy behind Arch Linux and its benefits as a distro, while the second part is a (very simplified) guide on setting up your first Arch install.I won't go through some of the more basic explanations since, as Linux users, you probably know how to burn an ISO image to CD, what the difference between 32- and 64-bit operating systems is, and so on.Bear in mind that while this guide should get you started, this is by no means a one-stop-shop for all Arch Linux knowledge.
