I've created new updated Arch Linux install tutorial. If any one interested see http://gotux.net/arch-linux/arch-linux- … tallation/
I will soon update it even more and add post-install and other tweaks to it. Don't forget about official Arch wiki ofc but if you want something very quick check it out
My first post on this forum!
Thank you TuxLyn, I bookmarked your wiki, a lot of usefull informations!

Thank you buddy I'm actually working on posting many more related to Arch Linux.
I have been wanting a lt;dr version of the beginners guide but be aware that the OP's makes some assumptions about your partition scheme, boot loader preferences, etc. Still a good stab at it.
Add a syslinux explanation maybe.

add wifi setup option, someone have no wired condition like me maybe.
@once, I will actually make new tutorial about networking instead.
Thank you all for comments. I just want to say thank you to Arch Linux developers and there official wiki.
Firstly, please be assured that I'm only trying to be constructive here. You are, of course, free to ignore any or all of the following if you wish.
As you have chosen to write your documentation in English, would it be possible to put a little more effort into making sure it is correct English? I have taken a quick look at some of your other articles, and it seems you are more proficient than this article would suggest. A distro installation is not a trivial operation, and in my opinion users would appreciate as much clarity as possible.
Updated tutorial some more Thank you all for your comments.
It's very awesome
I have a question after following your tutorial:
Slim allows root log in but normal user cannot login.
How to fix that, thanks a lot!
@orangejuice, It's really just a dummyfied/simplified version of official wiki but thank you As for regular user, did you set password for it ?
@TuxLyn: I've tried 2 cases:
1. I add user and set password before install xfce+slim
2. I add user and set password after using root to log in xfce (via slim)
In 2 cases, only root can log in via slim
Do you know why?

Thanks a lot, TuxLyn
I've seen that you had done some fixes on your tutorial at gotux.net
It's so cool, now i can log in with regular user!
Good work tuxLyn. But I would have to say its very minimal. For anyone reading this thread its still always better to learn to set things up yourselves by following the arch wiki.
Can you add about setting up wireless or ethernet for base installation, since you are describing a net install.

Thank you guys, I will update it with ever stable XFCE release Because XFCE 4.12 missed its release schedule date this time, it will take a bit longer. Each time I update this tutorial is when I do fresh install so its tested and working But I do recommend official wiki installation guide if you're new to Arch Linux and never installed it before.
