Re: Arch review on distrowatch newsletter

While this is certainly very handy, I think this information should be given as a summary upon completion of an install rather than after each dependency. These messages can be easily missed when installing dozens of packages.

Yeah that's specially true. Perhaps showing installation text at the end would help...

and the comments complete the picture. (Not always been the case in the DWW comments lately.)

Re: Arch review on distrowatch newsletter

Authors at Wikipedia wrote a decent article about and/or description of Arch Linux as well. Read it if you're willing to do so at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arch_Linux

I discovered Arch Live by Godane by reading that same article/description of Arch Linux at Wikipedia (mentioned above).

I addded an example of how this could work smile
I could patch it, but I do not program in C, just bash so I guess this is all I can collaborate with
