Is there such a thing as the "best" Arch Linux installer?

Postby yadav12 » Tue May 25, 2021 6:51 am

I adore Arch and perform a lot of vanilla Arch instals, but it gets old after a while. I'm experimenting with it, therefore I'm doing a lot of reinstalls and doing them on different PCs. I also use vanilla Arch on my main boxes, and I keep them up to date (no reinstalls there).

I'm solely interested in the Arch base installation, Gnome, Pipewire, and Wayland (or Xorg if using nVidia driver). Everything else is something I can do manually. Which installer/distro comes closest to a vanilla Arch instal, according to the Arch community?

So far, ArcoLinux, EndeavourOS, and Anarchy have risen to the top of my Google searches.

Is there a script that I can use to instal Arch on a vanilla ISO?

Update: As some have pointed out, the official ISO now includes a new archinstall.sh script. It performs a decent job, but I discovered that even with an AMD/ATI GPU, it still utilises Xorg for Gnome. How do I make the conversion to Wayland? Wayland does not appear to be installed on the script. 192.168.8.1
192.168.100.1
192.168.0.1

Are you asking for Arch or Arch ARM. They are different distros.

None of these listed are Arch. These are also different distros.
