I have Arch Linux in one of my laptop’s partition.
The advantage of Arch Linux are
1. Rolling Release – No 6 month once release. We will get the software updates once they release. We can keep on upgrading our packages and the entire operating system.
2. Tons and Tons of application – Arch Linux contributors package the new software very fast. When a new software is released, it will be available in arch’s repo in one or two days.
3. Awesome Wiki / Forums – The Arch Wiki is the finest tech wiki in the world. We get answers for all our queries. Forums have already answered for our queries too.
4. Nice Learning – We will learn tons of new stuff daily.
Planning to explore this for some time.
To upgrade the system,
When I ran this, got the following error.
error: failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)
filesystem: /bin exists in filesystem
filesystem: /sbin exists in filesystem
Errors occurred, no packages were upgraded.
To solve this, have to execute as below.
pacman -Syu –ignore filesystem,bash
[root@shrini-laptop etc]# pacman -Syu –ignore filesystem,bash
