    No, that's the easy part. DM and a usable system is trickier imo.

    @dder But don't give up. Giving up doesn't give you anything. Trying does.

    @olback Arch users don't need graphics, and even less a workable system because if they had work to do, they wouldn't have time to fumble around with Arch.

    @dder don't give up! You're almost there! Now only 500 hours so you can create the best rice of your life and you're done

    @dontPanic or just install tmux and write a good vimrc.

    I haven't started X in weeks.

    @gitreflog well, if that is the "usual" translation, I'm fine with it either.. ;)

    @dder dunno which one. i just literally tranlated the "die definition von" bit..

    @gitreflog fair enough, I'm often afraid of literal translations of quotes... because usually there are different meaning, especially when talking about 'common' phrases

    @dontPanic I like lynx or brow.sh but most of the time tools like howdoi, googler, various rss readers, and mutt serve my purposes. And for rare occasions it's easier to pull my phone out than to start x and then firefox.

    I have a lot of x stuff installed and i3, etc. But I very rarely use it.

    @Haxk20 since arch is rolling, he's probably just using a really old install media.

    @iamavalos No, offense, just wanted to throw that in ;)

    @deadPix3l I just used the links from the arch wiki. Going to update ASAP ;)

    @dder do you have any updates? Does the thing still run?

    @dontPanic oh sure. Had 1 issue with bootloader because of ricing my loginscreen, but then my daily driver for work / home.
    Works perfectly / robust / fast / stable.

    I love it!
