Separate repo or other to BlackArch have direct accesss to hardware

I would like to install BlackArch alongside of ArchLinux. I know that BlackArch can easily break dependencies at ArchLinux. Is there a method to separate those two repos so I will have also direrect access to hardware from BlackArch apps? Especially I need direct access to WIFI card and dongles from BlackArch.

You are aware that blackarch is considered a separate distro ?
Adding their repos will lead to support threads by you getting closed.

If you want to do pen testing on archlinux , check https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/List_o … s/Security and install the applications you need.


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.

If you really want to combine arch with blackarch, you could try to install blackarch in a chroot or systemd-nspawn container.

Does chroot or systemd-nspawn have access to hardware? I would like to have WIFI beeing able to catch packets directly by blackarch pen tools.

With chroot you have full access, with systemd-nspawn it depends on the namespace configuration you use.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Chroot
Make sure to install and load all necessary kernel modules before entering the chroot, that is the one thing you can't/should not do from inside the chroot.
