Where can I download arch64-8.0 iso ?
base-0.8-beta1-20070123-x86_64.iso 155476 KB 01/23/2007 05:49:00 AM base-0.8-beta2-20070223-x86_64.iso 144196 KB 02/23/2007 11:03:00 PM current-0.8-beta1-20070123-x86_64.iso 536862 KB 01/23/2007 05:49:00 AM current-0.8-beta2-20070223-x86_64.iso 516362 KB 02/23/2007 11:03:00 PM ftp-0.8-beta1-20070123-x86_64.iso 19826 KB 01/23/2007 05:49:00 AM ftp-0.8-beta2-20070223-x86_64.iso
Those are beta version. Is a stable version available?
If for testing I suppose to download "current-0.8-beta2-20070223-x86_64.iso"
Please advise. TIA
0.8-beta2-20070223-x86_64.iso would be the one you want.
all the Arch .iso are just the intaller version , once you install , you would update with Pacman , and they would all give you the same updated Arch system.
Base has all of the stable files to give you a bootable Arch without any GUI desktop
ftp has a Minimal bootable installer , that then gets all the latest from the internet
not sure what the difference is between base and current
hope this helps

Base has only base packages (enough to boot and download everything else), current has almost entire current repository - xorg, some windowmanagers, firefox...
Hi Pick2 and Stalwart,
Tks for your advice. I'll download Current.
I'm prepared to run arch64 as server, web, mail, database, etc. for test only. I need X for running GUI browser because I don't feel comfortable on browsing with text browser, elinks. Although I have certain experience on running elinks. Frequently complaint popup on browsing some websites on elinks, requesting to run a GUI browser. I won't get X started at boot only evoked when necessary. Xfce4 will be my preferrable desktop.
Are there available documents re installation of server on arch64 Linux? Tks.
If you're installing server - get ftp iso - it will download most recent packages
What I'm worrying is - can't the onboard NIC be detected? Otherwise I can't establish broadband connection. The server is connected on 6MB highway.
