Re: Question about ArchBang

Arch provides only 'bare' installation images; we do not provide live CD's. You can safely assume everything with a GUI is non-official.

Re: Question about ArchBang

I assume that the people behind ArchBang communicated with the Arch developers before releasing their installer, but i personally think it's not a really good idea if derivate distros have a full reference to Arch in their names. It causes just this kind of confusion.

It is 99% identical to Arch, but do note that no community support will be given on these forums for installations done from non-official media: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fo … ow_to_Post

ArchBang has it's own forums: http://bbs.archbang.org

Well, that makes sense.  I went and checked out their website after seeing these other posts, and noticed that their site directs new users straight here.  roll  Hope things are cleared up for you now.

OT: It appears ArchBang's wiki doesn't have any captcha security, which leads to this sort of thing.  Neat.  This might explain why they link directly to the Arch wiki.
