Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Sup. It's 6 am and I've been up all night gathering random knowledge about Linux for a personal project. Let's just say I have a healthy level of zeal for my ideas. Complete newb to Arch though. Looking forward to diving head first into this forum each night until I finish what I started hopefully. よろしくお願いたします。

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

New to this distribution, but not completely new to Linux. So far I've used another distribution, but the newest release will not work anymore on my old machine. Reason: it's a 32 bits machine. So far so good. Let's see how far I can come with this version. Source for my choice: LINUX Magazine, April 2016. Yes ... sometimes time flies like arrows. Keeps you busy.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hey !

I'm sort of new to Arch but quite enthusiastic. Gotta love learning !

Registering was a bit of a pain, in the end it was setting GMT+2 and Daylight Savings that did it, although technically I think I am either in GMT+1 with Savings, or GMT+2 without Savings. Whatever. I never thought I would be so proud after managing to register on a forum.
I am seeking a bit of help to install Arch (the GRUB part), so I will be in the appropriate section for a while.

Edit : Nevermind, just had to add the grub entry using efibootmgr.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi, everyone! I'm writing this from my brand-spanking-new Dell XPS 15 9570 laptop with Arch installed. I'm new to Arch, but not to Linux; I'm a recent convert from Debian (outdated packages got on my nerves), which I in turn moved to three years ago from Ubuntu. I've managed to get my system booting and mostly tweaked just the way I want it, and I'm excited to join the wonderful world of Arch!

Hi Hi Hi! from a hobbyist coder.
I fell in love with Arch because it's sweetly aligned with my minimalist lifestyle.
Been running this for about six months now.
I know just about enough linux-fu to make life dangerous!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi everyone!

I'm trying Arch for the first time because Cortana recommended it.

Coming from Windows 10 gaming / Ubuntu 16.04 main --
at first I was a little anxious about switching, but I've been getting my hands dirty more often than not at work for the past half a year, so I figured why not just dive in.

You mean to tell me that Cortana, which practically gets down on its knees, begs and pleads with  you to use Edge and too associate your 'Experience' with a MS account -- every single time you boot that darn OS  -- told you to install a Linux that is not even one of the ones they have blessed for use with their Linux for Windows service? 

-- Really ? --

O_o

Regardless, welcome to Arch Linux smile

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi everyone !
Just coming to say hello !

I'm a french student who likes computing during my free time.
I've been introduced to Arch Linux thanks to a friend who is using it for a few years now. I'm now using it on my work laptop ans soon on my main desktop.

I was sick of Windows and Microsoft politics, so, I'm here now ! ^^'

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Just realized I've been here for a while and never made a post here.

I'm just a 20 year old who loves Linux.  I first started on Ubuntu, switched to Debian, and now I'm here.  I actually plan on installing Parabola for that "free as in freedom" feel.  I also tried out Void Linux.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi,
I've installed Arch over the weekend. So far so good.
I'm amazed by how flexible and minimal this distro is!
I hope to learn more about Linux and would like to contribute in the Open Source community.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello everyone!  Joining from a long career in I.T., mostly Windows support, and Linux for pleasure.  I've had my share of distros including Fedora/CentOS (current personal server), Ubuntu, SuSe, Gentoo, and Debian (current old laptop), and now thought I'd try Arch since I've read much over the years, on my new laptop.

Just finished the initial install and have a few issues I'm working through, there is a very nice WIKI here that is helping immensely and I'm sure I'll find most of my answers there.

Anyway, hello again everyone!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi Guys!  I've been messing with Arch for a number of years, mostly guided by the videos of Jay Lacroix (LearnLinux.tv) and the much missed Midfingr, aided and abetted by the Arch site.

I had a problem with booting my Arch install recently, I googled for enlightenment without success, and decided I definitely needed help.  This conclusion was confirmed when I struggled to pass the minimum competence test which the registration process proved to be (the hash thing at the the end).

In the meantime, my simple strategy of typing "pacman -Syu" every day and hoping for the package that caused the problem to be fixed, worked.

This prompted me to blow the dust off my clonezilla usb and resume my old habit of backing-up.

Thanks for listening.

Best regards,

Grenville

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello everyone, I've been using gnu/linux for awhile now. I've played around with Arch before, but this time I wanted to learn more about the operating system and make myself a "DIY" distribution. The documentation here is tremendous, and the community appears quite active. I'm excited to learn more.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hello. I first learned about Linux in 1992/1993. I started to use Linux full time in 2003 with Debian, and Arch the following year. They continue to be my main distros. I've been a long time lurker and finally decided to join. I'm happy to finally be a member of this community. smile
