This is my yearly Arch Wiki appreciation post. What an incredible source of information ❤️
@fribbledom ditto from me. Thank you all the contributors.
@fribbledom So many times I've Internet searched a non-Arch Linux problem and ended up on the Arch Wiki, usually getting my answer.
Every arch wiki page should end with:
This is the way
@fribbledom Hmmm it used to be far better in the past.
When I needed to find out some weird error with my sound card or applications like emulators, I'd go to the AW and it'd have the error messages I needed to track the issue.
Nowadays if I need to find something all it says is "use systemd-somethingd" which ofc is useless most of the time, even more if you don't have systemd.
It used to have the know-how to *solve* issues. Not anymore.
@fribbledom I've never even used Arch but I've sorted a variety of problems by reading articles in the wiki. Great resource!
It really is
@fribbledom hands down it is easily the best linux wiki. Even if you don't use an Arch based distro you can find a ton of help and informatiin there.
@fribbledom reading it regularly for all my slackware needs :)
@fribbledom I have never tried arch, but am seriously tempted to whenever I stumble upon their wiki
@fribbledom i dont run arch but that wiki has saved my sorry arse so many times.
it just actually spells out all the details, all the options, all the possible variations, until you just have to find something that moves (yr brain or) yr pc forward.
