- Never got package signing working with my Arch install. hmm....May 6, 2012
Oh, cool. So then, what is the advantage of Arch to, let's say CentOS or Fedora?May 7, 2012
- Arch is configured by you, so there isn't anything going on that you didn't expressly set up. All the startup daemons are manually added by you, all the config files are manually written (or at least verified) by you. It's the closest you can get to a custom-tailored OS for your computer, without actually compiling everything.
It's funny how these kernel RC updates deviate like crazy, but it's always a good discussion forum.May 7, 2012
- In addition to whatsaid, Arch is rolling release, so you don't have to bother with EOL of your current distro (which for Fedora is really, really small (13 months))May 7, 2012
- I'll try it for my server in the following months after I've finished with my other commitments. Thank you everyone.May 8, 2012
- Although, I have been nipped in the rear end by the more bleeding edge rolling release. Kernel updates: no more wifi. I find out it's a bug that renders pretty much every Atheros chipset useless. No problem, I revert back and wait for the update to be released.
A few weeks later, yet another kernel update is released. This time is renders DBus unusable... which is a bit more important!! Suffice to say..
