Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Just joined the forum. Linux user since March this year. Totally wiped Windows from both my machines and made the switch (Linux Mint at first and then Manjaro).

I've done quite a lot of aborted Arch installs over the past few weeks. I would typically get the base system installed but there were packages missing and the system would run like a dog on bare metal or virtual machine installs. I still am not sure what I was getting wrong but I was definitely fouling it up in multiple ways.

Yesterday I did a successful install into a spare partition on my laptop, and one in virtualbox, so this morning I wiped Manjaro from the laptop and installed Arch with the cinnamon desktop and lightdm. The laptop has never been faster. I am impressed !!!

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi,

Not new to linux,
I've erased my GF entire gallery back in 2012.
She cried a little bit for the pictures.
But I am happy overall.

Windows is heavy,
Linux is 500mi idle.

I love arch, pacman and the community.
Everyday I know why I wake up: Sudo Pacman -Syyu
Then I go to sleep again until the next day.

I want to be a hacker.
But I am too old for that.
So I'll be glad to be a SysAdmin.

Learning some programming.
Assembly, C and python.
Bash, Perl is okay.

My dream is to be an Arch Developer.
Thanks for the guidelines.
I am here to help.

Here is my pstree:

That's not the proper way to upgrade your system - but I gather it is advised in some currently popular third-party tutorials which are not supported on these forums.

You're never too old to become a actual hacker.  If you mean you want to be what the media calls a "hacker" ... well, there are comments on that in the linked article too about being "lazy, irresponsible, and not very bright".

I really need to help myself before helping others.
Thanks, that's why I am here. Anyway.
Got to read Upgrading the system.
Definitely.

Haha, Yes. Not talking about script kiddies.

No age's required, you're right.

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Hi everyone!
My dad introduced me to Linux through Ubuntu... while he stayed there, I started distrohopping and came across Arch Linux. The first time I tried to install it I couldn't even figure out the partitions so I gave it up... until I finally figured it out and now I'm here and ready to learn more

Re: The Official Hello Everyone Thread

Welcome, Beyond46 and Javilinkling360! I, too, was a distro-hopper until I ran into Arch Linux. I was running Kubuntu until I got tired of re-installing my system every time I broke something. I have learned how to diagnose my own problems and fix them (usually with the help of the gurus' in the forums). On the Debian systems I was running, I would re-install every 6-8 months. I've been running this current iteration for a few years.

edit for punctuation.
