It looks like you are on your way to going well in Arch Linux. Some people can get really frustrated with it, but it seems you've done quite well.

If you haven't gotten yaourt yet... get it. gnome-colors, faenza, and elementary are all good icon themes that you can install from the AUR. I use the shiki theme from the AUR because it goes best with gnome-colors. However, go with what you think looks best!

Also if you like working with the terminal a lot, get programs like mutt, rtorrent, mpd (with ncmpc or mpc frontend), and irssi.

All in all the install took less than an hour. The real slow part was downloading gnome. I guess the mirrors I chose have low bandwidth limits, since I was downloading at like 150kb/s.

I'm enjoying it so far. Next part is to tackle my wireless card (built in for laptop). I already got the driver I need and found some instructions from the manufacturer.. just have to do it biggrin.gif

Once I get my wireless setup then I'm off to the races..

Posting from epiphany in Arch Linux biggrin.gif

That was a fun project and I learned a lot.. why don't more people do this?!

Now.. to make my desktop look better. I went with GNOME since that's what I know best..

check this guide out. every time i install arch I always go with openbox as my wm and tint2 for my panel.

my favorite irc client is weechat.
rtorrent is best terminal based client apparently.
cmatrix makes you cool.

When it comes to torrents most people will use rtorrent, but beware as it does not run as a daemon unless you throw it into a screen session, which I'd say is a poor excuse for daemon functionality. I personally like deluge, which runs in a client-server system with a daemon being the server and then you can use a number of different clients to connect to them (gtk, web, or ncurses based).

If you actually like to seed torrents, the daemon functionality is a must.

I used to like seeding anime on nyaa torrents, but ever since I downloaded Bleach ep316 my ISP got a letter about it. So I don't think I will be seeding again and be running peerblock.

I never tried deluge but I heard of it. ncurses is the terminal based am i correct?

I used to use Azureus but the switch to Vuze made me angry. Azureus was an amazing linux torrent client, one of the first good ones. Either way Deluge came along and I've found it very when comparing it to the original Azureus feel! It's worth a good look, rtorrent/utorrent/ect... aren't nearly as good as some of the hidden ones that you can find. Especially in the linux community, there are a lot of good projects.

peerblock is a hoax, at least if you understand how the ISP works and where your data goes. Any proxy/privatizing/vpn software that routes you elsewhere can't hide you from your ISP. It's simple physics, WAY simple.

This is your cable line, a basic concept:
Code:
<You> ======== || ISP ||====[Proxy]==== <World>

You see the problem? It's literally that simple, it will always be that simple until you can access the internet without an ISP.

[edit] What it can do, and I honestly forgot this, is hide you from people who will report you to the ISP. You still need to remember that this just reduces your changes, your ISP CAN SEE EVERYTHING. Just sayin.

[edit2] To counter peer guardian and the likes the ISP gets the feds to get all the IPs who were using the service at the time the the tracker was up. If the service was found to be connected to the tracker, and then they can find you.

I would post the better solutions to this problem but I'm not going to tell you how to pirate. I can't, at least not if I wish to use this site. =P

Nice Kuroko avatar, btw.

I seed for a few hours after the things I download from nyaa (it's all unlicensed in America, so legal to torrent). I don't like any of the "big three" when it comes to anime. Besides nyaa, everything else that I download is from private trackers. I like to force encryption and alternate my torrent port. Never ever had an issue from Comcast.

@mushroomboy
Yeah, Azureus/Vuze have always been bloated imo and I've never used them for that reason.

Also, if you really want to be safe you could always purchase a seedbox, instead of a VPN. A VPN will basically slow down everything, while a seedbox server would allow you to just do your torrenting in another location.

Yeah, seedbox's are a good way to seed. I just don't like people thinking that the ISP has a tough time knowing what you do. They generally don't care what you do, as long as you don't get any complaints. =P ISPs don't like to get involved but once they are you can't really hide from them.

The default Arch mirror limits the bandwidth.

Since we're close geographically, I'd suggest editing your /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and uncommenting the entries for gatech, suu, rit, and vt, then ranking them using the script mentioned here.

After doing that, pacman -Syu tops out at around 2.2 MB/sec on DC Comcast. biggrin.gif

Not to mention if you use aria with pacman to download with multiple connections, it will usually max your connection.

I can't make my linuxbox into a seedbox? I'm not familiar with how that works.
