This article will document the decisions and process of my building an Arch Linux desktop. Arch Linux is a rolling release distro. There are no specific releases as there are with Fedora, Ubuntu, etc. Due to this I will not be posting a step by step procedure. That is covered very thoroughly in the Beginners’ guide located on the Arch wiki. I will be discussing the choices that I make and why I make them.
I am re-purposing some hardware that I had laying around for this build.
- AMD FX-6300
- 2 x 8GB DDR3 1333
- Kingston SVP100S2B 512GB SSD
