    This is brilliant, exactly what I was looking for. Now I have no more excuse not to tackle installing Arch… next hurdle though is figuring out which desktop environment I should use…

    I solved it. I hadn’t written /etc/locale.conf right.

    Excellent tutorial, kyau. Clear and easy to follow.

    When I login I get the message:
    -bash: LANG-en_GB.UTF-8: command not found

    What’s that about? Sorry, Im new to this. I was educated in Windows.

    I’m thinking about giving Arch a go. I consider myself a Linux newb and heard that Arch is a good way to learn the ins and outs of Linux.

    Nice guide…i love arch linux but he is too difficult to install,btw congratulation :)

    Installation is easier to install and quicker. but if you like heavy customization maybe use Arch..

  14. Sean Bruen 9:38 pm 30/12 of 2012

    This has changed recently due to systemd. Instead of using ‘loadkeys’, a simple ‘localectl set-keymap dvorak’ should suffice. To make this change permanent after installation add ‘KEYMAP=”dvorak”‘ to your ‘/etc/vconsole.conf’.

    Ubuntu is better

    Be sure to enable the annotations in the video as they explain things that have changed with current updates to Arch.

    Love your vid. But it demonstrates how frustrating Arch linux is to newbies. as soon as you chroot you don’t have access to the grub autoconfig that you downloaded previously. Not to mention that they deprecated the rc.conf and didn’t bother to update the docs. At this point I am marking the install as getting to be a big a pain as Gentoo was.
    With that said your directions were well done. Thanks for the effort.

    Is there a way to download pre-configured Arch ISOs? I’d like to start off with at least a GUI…

  20. Otto Kurunczi 12:52 am 31/12 of 2012

    Hi, you are referring to archwiki for UEFI installation. Could you please make a video showing that process step by step?

  21. ekogenuine 1:23 am 31/12 of 2012

    This is a great video on how to install the newer snapshots of Arch. Going to share this video on Google+! Thanks for the awesome video! Arch in my opinion is a spectacular distro.
