Guess it doesn’t work for btrfs subvolumes :confused:

It wouldn’t be correct anyway because I’ve changed filesystems at least three times since the initial installation.

Two years without borking the system or doing a clean install. That’s pretty impressive.

Yep , wonder if I ll ever achieve that ! lol

A clean install would be a small disaster to me. Thankfully Arch behaves well all the time. I remember well Ubuntu broken after upgrading to a new release. About 1 in 2 releases would end up like this.

Thanks :slight_smile:

I have wanted to install Vanilla Arch for a long time. Finally found the time to do it yesterday. Took me 3 hours to get everything set up just right. Partitioning, base install, Xorg and DE took around 1 hour but the time consuming part was installing my apps and the rest of the configuration. If I had faster Internet, then it would have been less time-consuming process.
