2021-04-01

Arch Linux Vmware Fusion

The installation medium now provides a guided installer.

This addition to the default method of installation (based on the installation guide) is similar to the other methods.

Moving to Zstandard images by default on mkinitcpio

2021-02-19

As linux-lts moved to the 5.10 version, all official kernels of Arch Linux now support zstd compressedinitramfs images, so mkinitcpio is switching to zstd compressed images by default with version 30,which is currently on [testing].

If, for any reason, you are using a kernel version prior to 5.9, make sure to change mkinitcpio.confCOMPRESSION to use one of the compressors supported, like gzip, otherwise you will not be able toboot images generated by mkinitcpio.

Chromium losing Sync support in early March

2021-02-03

Google has announced that they are going to block everything but Chrome from accessing certain Google features (like Chrome sync) starting on March 15. This decision by Google is going to affect Arch's chromium package a bit earlier, on March 2, when Chromium 89 gets released.

We know for sure that data syncing will stop working (passwords, bookmarks, etc.). Other features such as geolocation or enhanced spell check might continue to function for a bit longer. Extensions integrating with Google Drive might misbehave and LibreOffice will lose access to documents stored there.

Other distros such as openSUSE and Fedora have …

Manual pages indexing service

2021-01-14

We are happy to announce our newest public service: A manual pages indexing site at man.archlinux.org that publishes the man pages of all our packages and allows you to search and browse them. Check out, for example, the man page of tar.

Arch Linux

Arch Linux is a Linux-based operating system for i686 and x86-64 computers. It uses ‘pacman’, its home-grown package manager, to provide updates to the latest software applications with full dependency tracking. The design approach of the development team focuses on elegance, code correctness, minimalism, and simplicity, and expects the user to be willing to make some effort to understand the system’s operation. It is composed predominantly of free and open-source software, and supports community involvement.
