ArchBang still lives

Have had quite a few comments regarding current state of ArchBang.

Archlinux is a 'rolling release' meaning that you do need to reinstall simply update use pacman. Our release policy is four a year, seasonal in other words. Will of course update isos if there a major in arch.

We are a very small team (trying to get Eric onboard!).

Working on Spring release at the moment, aiming for early March.

Anyone who is worried about ArchBang please feel free to contact me.

Re: ArchBang still lives

Thanks for weathering the last 6 months storm. I have been around since Will2k put out his 21 steps to install arch with openbox. Tried antergos , Manjaro, CTK, Bridge, and because you are still holding the Torch and still around. I am gravitating back, because pacbang/architech/EVO has shut down once again. downloading and installing in a VM.

Re: ArchBang still lives

A four releases a year schedule is viable, removing aur packages from ArchBang certainly reduces work needed to get ISO built.

Not a GUI guru so no not really spend much time on the overall, rather the packages and installer.

The humble work is often underestimated.

Re: ArchBang still lives

Hello All,

It has been ages, but glad to see Archbang still thriving. I would still be using archbang if not for UEFI difficulties on my laptop. But this distro was what turned me to arch. Currently I run manjaro, but I want badly to get archbang back on my laptop as well. I really learnt alot from this distro and team and credit this distro doing to arch what vector linux did for slackware.
Great appreciation from me and I am sure many others.

Re: ArchBang still lives

@kazuaya UEFI is something I have little experience in. If I had a newer laptop then it would be something I could test and possibly work on a better efi support. Feedback from users is always useful in this area, does uefi in abinstall work or what they did to get it running. Would certainly go for a more hands on approach to installation, that is more in line with Arch... you learn far more that way.

Re: ArchBang still lives

I also had trouble to install Archbang on an uefi desktop. Went to a lot of trouble but couldnot solve it. Installed Manjaro and then could easily add Archbang and make it my default sytem.
