Artix Linux anyone?


#1

I have been distro hopping about and discovered Artix Linux recently. Arch based without systemd. Currently Artix has OpenRC and runit versions available. I have played with it in VB and on hardware for a week and so far, so good.

Thanks, imma try it out

Used it a couple of times just to play around with. It’s not a distro for me.

How’s that?
I find the concept attractive and although to be honest I am not informed enough to make a claim about the issues with systemd, I have read many times that - if possible - alternative systems should be used.

Archlabs-Runit? :slight_smile:

I personally prefer systemd. That was pretty much it :smiley:


#6

I guess it would be a lot of work. Although I think having more init option would be nice, but…¯\(ツ)


#7

From what I remember reading, they adapted the scripts from Void and made runit work on Arch. I only mention it because I thought it was interesting and it seemed to work well on hardware and VB.
