  1. As always, fantastic video.
    You mention problems with sound on your device. I have an issue with a Lenovo L13 Yoga device where my media keys won't work when I play YouTube videos. After stopping the video and switching to another application, they work again.
    I uninstalled the pipewire packages and I'm on pulse again. Everything is working as expected again.
    I use dwm and have not had this issue on any of my desktop computers nor on my MacBook Air.

  2. Very interesting and very clear video. I'm always interested in following this tutorial, even though I'm currently using Fedora Linux after Arch Linux which I've been using so far I've had to replace it with Fedora Linux for the past two months, due to many problems and can no longer be updated. Thanks for this great video, Ermanno.

  3. Ermanno, thanks for the video. What's your take on Slackware? Sorry if you already made a video about Slackware and I somehow missed it. Also in one of your videos about btfrs, you mention that you can concatenate two disks with mkfs.btfrs /dev/sda /dev/sdb , but that if that were the case , you would rather put the two disks on two separate btfrs. Could you expand on that topic? Like .. how two separate btfrs would be better than just one across the the two disks? Thanks again for all your videos.

  4. Wow, what a freakin comprehensive video that was. My head’s spinning quite a bit now, just like it was after my first day of p-chem (during my Masters program) so many years ago! Thank you so much Ermanno for the introduction to SystemD boot and the detailed step-by-step here. Also, after watching you customize your xfce DE, I realize I have NO idea how to customize desktops…at all. Just wow to this entire video. ?

  5. Thank you for your tutorials 🙂

    Few days back i successfully installed arch using your btrfs+zram+pipewire video and the arch wiki from scratch but after i hit reboot it did not show up. I tried chrooting and fixing but no luck. So i ended up installing archlabs and removed any archlabs specific software so it's basically arch. I've installed arch using the wiki a few years back but i don't know why I wasn't able to boot into arch after installation. Anyway I'll probably install arch soon if i get free time from college. Thanks for your monthly installs. They're very helpful.

  6. Hey, just confirming that this installation did not include luks encryption for the partitions? I've read online that it's possible to setup the encryption after the installation. Thank you very mcuh!

  7. Great video tutorial! Could you also show how to make it automatically mount the root partition based on partition type (8304 in gdisk). I’ve never managed to get it to work.

  8. Thanks for the video and for sharing the knowledge. Please, if you could make a video teaching how to install Arch Linux in dual boot (EFI – systemd-boot) with Pop!_OS 20.04 LTS I would be very grateful. I have Pop!_OS installed and would like to test Arch on my notebook (Intel/Nvidia). Would it be possible to teach how to do this procedure using the Archinstall script?

  9. Excellent monthly install of Arch Linux,
    I have a question:
    related to (Arch Linux: Hybrid Install With Encrypted UEFI & Legacy BIOS On a USB Stick)
    is it possible to do this dual with systemd instead of grub?

  10. If I remember correctly, you can commit a script with executable flag (chmod +x) to a repository which should preserve the flag when you clone it to another computer. You could save a bit time there. 😉
