After Arch installation...

You've just do a fresh installation of your Arch Linux and now it's time to make your distribution look more funny/pretty/easy/cool/useful/what_you_want...

So, after an Arch installation, what do you do? What are the first files you edit? What are needed configurations?

Perhaps first installing xorg and then the windows manager of your choice

Re: After Arch installation...

well, straight after fresh install i configure my locales with locale-gen and set it also in /etc/profile. /etc/pacman.conf then gets a single server from germany coz i live here and then xorg and wm/de gets installed. oh and configuring X with hwd is one step too.

cheers,

Re: After Arch installation...

I always start by getting all of my console stuff (stuff that doesn't require X) setup and working. Only then, after all the console stuff is working, I install X and my favorite X apps.
