ArchBang Linux 2012.12 Review – Lightweight Arch

Filed under
Linux

ArchBang is a very specific spin of Arch Linux meant to be simple and light. Due to the rolling release nature of Arch Linux, there isn’t a whole lot new package wise in ArchBang that you’ll have been able to update to from the previous releases – what sets it apart though is the update to the Linux Kernel, moving to Kernel 3.6.8, and other upgrades to Openbox. Even the developers say if you’re fine with your current ArchBang install, you don’t need to worry about upgrading. However, it can pay to be up to date.

The steps needed to install ArchBang vary greatly in skill level – a great LiveDisc with the same basic packages as the full system can be easily obtained, burned to disc, and accessed via the straightforward boot menu. All very standard stuff.
