Arch really isn't hard to install if you have at least a basic understanding, just follow the guides in their wiki. I think it was Shrak who mentioned before that you can use pacman to revert back to the initial install.

Indeed thumb.gif

As for that trick, it is indeed very helpful. Basically tell pacman to uninstall everything except base and base-devel, or base, base-devel, xorg, sudo and alsa so that you can basically be at a clean slate for swapping DE's without having any extra leftovers from the previous "install?"... Basically re-install without actually... re-installing ( no extra download than what you need, no having to set up all over again, etc ).

Really is quite handy to take a look at some of the tricks you can do.

I think I have an arch disc somewhere here,it's just that cfdisk wasn't working well and I don't know if cgdisk works well or not but I might give it a try smile.gif

mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdX

Is all it would have took to fix that. If it indeed was just the file system changing.

Arch literally takes... 5-15 minutes tops to install on a decent internet connection. Really no different than using a GUI installer in terms of speed. And in terms of ease... the Arch guide is pretty much about as spoonfed as it gets, literally do what they say ( making changes where needed like with language and whatnot ), and you'll be done just as quick as Manjaro, Antergos or Archbang.


As to cfdisk / cgdisk, as long as your partitions are intact you wouldn't have to bother with them again.

Nope it was just arch and archbang and manjaro was only downloaded 2 days ago

Yup,cfdisk didn't even partition anything at all so shrak told me that I should be using cgdisk instead since I had a GPT table but by that time I had already installed archbang
