1. I got used to the package management program "pacman" from Arch Linux. Even the PKGBUILD system and the arch user repository is well implemented to my surprise. To make things easier I compiled pcruses, a ncurses gui for pacman, with a little modification on my arm system.

    1. @broniebrown New to Arch? I'm at the point of leaving Parabola (libre-Arch) :P

      1. @omni I own a pogoplug (a ceap NAS) and Arch is the only distribution that supports this device. I'm ususally a debian guy but arch is fascinating in some points.

        1. @broniebrown Ah, I see. How useful are those NAS things?

          1. @omni It depends. If you need a centralised server that should store all your data then it is the way to go. Otherwise it is not necessary. Also this pogoplug can be used for more than storing simple files. I'm looking how to install a caldav, webdav server to synchronise my calendars and address books. Or i just install owncloud. I don't know yet.

            1. @broniebrown OwnCloud was a bit buggy for me, but I wonder if I could run LAMP and some game servers on a NAS, or if it would be too weak for that :x

              1. @omni My pogoplug for example only has 256mb RAM and a 1.2GHz ARM processor and Arch is installed on a 16GB usb stick. On the plus side: this system doesn't suck as much power than a full PC.
