Very funny Mr. Green.

More seriously I would support an Arch fork that would be designed to offer choice and democratic governing. Again, not a developer, but I can offer hosting, beta testing and documentation writing.

Thanks for the link; this will make AB look difficult is my first impression.
Maybe the non-systemd road can save AB as  being something special.

It is based on Antergos installer, no reason why we could not borrow it for ArchBang simply reduce options to just Openbox desktop. Mind you that would take quite a bit of work. If they produced installer as a package ;-)

Might be a good idea.
BTW Furch has been renamed to Evo/Lution

Re: FU-rch or now renamed Evo/Lution

It is a very cool idea and reaches far beyond anything we could hope to achieve. I still think you should install arch the arch way, this coming from someone trying to build arch with a different init system....

Re: FU-rch or now renamed Evo/Lution

Last update of Evo/Lution was in May. And you have to download everything from Arch- so you can't just dd the iso on a stick and run it on whatever computer.

... yes, and, this installer might also bypass the ever-present, weird, and annoying  "/mnt..." permissions issues, during Installation, that AB, and a few other (pure-Arch)-archiso distro's have been having lately too ?

Re: FU-rch or now renamed Evo/Lution

I never really fully tried this newer "Evo/Lution" until now, and realized the CLI guts of it looked very familiar,
in fact, it's the same AIS bash script/net-installer  that Helmutt started posting over at arch forums, back in 2011.

...cool.

quote from another thread:

Hey Carl,
I noticed your (Evolution) Forum is filling up with Manjaro Users.

  ...seriously though, Good work, and good luck with your Evo/Lution project.

Yeah many  that used manjaro came there to learn about Arch in the first place (myself included)  so I guess it's naturally progression to go from manjaro to Evo or straight to Arch (even though more and more also go the other way).  Nothing wrong with that - we all have to start out somewhere smile 

What I like about Evo is the forum's atmosphere. It's meant to be for users of arch or arch based distros but without all the trash-talk you may see on "big daddy's" forum.  Just like here - it's a place you can actually get help without hearing how stupid you are. (not saying that everybody's like that).  I've done two installs of Arch with Evo (lution-ais) the last week.  When I tried yesterday all of a sudden there was a lot of red warnings during boot and of course I had no clue what they all meant. Looked on Evo's forum and Carl was aware and had already written how to fix the problem  smile

So now I go to Manjaro for my Pek fix, and I use A! light ( but it's not so light anymore tongue), and finally I have KDE thanks to Jeff and Carl and the Evo project. A minimal KDE install with approx 650 packages and that thing's fast for KDE smile
