NEWS ABOUT ArchEX 220904
I’ve made a new extra “Mini” version of ArchEX. It has four advantages compared with ArchEX Build 220901.
A) This ArchEX build is smaller. The ISO file is “only” of 1740 MB compered with Build 220901 which is of 4010 MB. This is of importance since ArchEX can run very fast live from RAM. So your computer needs lesser RAM to run Build 220904. Should be enough with 2 GB. NOTE: I was hoping to make the ISO file even smaller, but that was impossible since Calamares Installer has a lot of dependencies.
B) ArchEX Build 220904 has all Arch Linux original installation scripts, which means that you can use this build to install Arch Linux “the Arch way” following the Installation Guide. Or you can just follow my example here. You can have my instructions up in Firefox while installing as this screenshot shows. When installing from Arch Linux official live DVD you’ll have to do it in console mode. (Could be tricky).
C) If you install Arch Linux (or ArchEX using Calamares) in VirtualBox or Qemu you can do it in full screen. VirtualBox Guest Additions are pre-installed in ArchEX Build 220904 (and Build 220901). Watch this screenshot. In Qemu you can just choose the screen resolution you want.
D) ArchEX Build 220904 uses kernel 5.19.6 (latest) and has support for more wireless cards. Kernel modules ath10k and wl are loaded also when running ArchEX live, which obviously means a lot.
