Once again, into the breach

Posted in Geekery on May 24th, 2004

A new distro has cropped up on my radar: Arch Linux 0.6. By all accounts, it is a nice fast, small distro with a handy package management utility – somewhat like Gentoo, but by reports much easier to install.

Unless, of course, you happen to have my luck with hard drives.

The 40 GB I bought a while ago due to other issues is now officially dead, and the 80 GB unit Greyduck handed my way may have issues as well. (This is the one that wouldn’t accept a Windows XP install.) So, the idea is on the back burner until early next week, when I will have the drive from my mom’s old computer up here.

Speaking of which, the old eMachine I rebuilt for her should be a nice improvement over the elderly PII she’s currently using. I’ll be going down there this weekend to swap them out, and also to see my little brother on furlough from the Marines.
