Informazioni generali sulla pubblicazione

Ogni caratteristica dovrebbe essere descritta in breve, fornendo le informazioni di base sull'oggetto. Il resto può essere incluso tramite link richiamati ad hoc. Ogni caratteritica ha anche un contrassegno. Questo dovrebbe essere assegnato dopo una lunga riflessione, tenendo a mente anche i contrassegni degli altri sistemi. Siate i più obiettivi che potete!

Siete pregati di usare la sintassi di Wiki per dare risalto alle cose. Molti hyperlinks vanno altrettanto bene, per segnalare dei siti web importanti che descrivono alcune caratteristiche delle ditribuzioni in maggior dettaglio.

KEY FEATURES Arch Linux is an independent lightweight i686-optimized community distribution for intermediate and advanced GNU/Linux users who aren't afraid of the command line. It offers great flexibility and control over what software you want to have on your system and how you want it configured. Like Slackware, it follows the "keep it simple" philosophy and is very fast to boot and run.
Supported architectures i686, amd64 (experimental)
Minimal hardware requirements ?
Software freedom status Mostly free, but includes some proprietary drivers
Installer - overall (7) Installer is very similar to Slackware, but requires even more experience and know-how. Partitioning has to be done before launching the installer (e.g. using cfdisk),. Upon installing, packages configuration files are offered for manual editing, although default settings are already present and will work in alot of cases.
Package selection (6) ?
Predefined package groups (6) ?
Expert mode install (1) Only expert mode available.
Graphical installer (0) Only text-mode dialog boxes, ncurses based.
Installer speed (6) ?
Graphical system management (0) By default there are no graphical configuration programs for Arch.
Console-based system management (0) No, except vi, emacs, nano etc.. Configuration is done by editing files directly.
Number of packages (6) There is overall a growing number of Arch packages, probably in line with what is available for Slackware. However, there is *alot* more of PKGBUILD's available in a so called "AUR" repository, files similar to gentoo ebuilds used by the Arch Build System for compiling packages from source. An easy to use command line tool is available for fetching and executing compilation of those, called aurbuild.
Package management, automatic dependency resolving (7) Yes, pacman (Arch package manager) handles dependancies pretty well. Even if you install from source, dependancies are being resolved within PKGBUILD's (much like in gentoo ebuilds).
Graphical package management tools (4) There are optional graphical front ends to pacman, but they have to be installed first (not included). A good example is gtk-pacman.
System boot-up speed (8) It is definitely one of the fastest booting distributions around, and optimization is easy for experienced users as well.
System responsiveness (7) Very good due to many optimizations.
Popularity (5) It's currently 22nd on Distrowatch, but its popularity seems to be rising, especially among Slackware and gentoo users. It is quite established among experienced users.
Security focus (4) It probably lacks behind likes of Slackware and Debian in this respect, but there is an effort in the right direction in form of the Arch Linux Security Team (ALST). Arch is a "bleeding edge" distro more than anything else and security should be on the average GNU/Linux level. Since it lays alot of flexibility towards the user, a big part of security is really up to the user/administrator.
Stability and maturity (3) It is a "bleeding edge" distro so some things could break here and there. It again depends on your choices. It is overall a fairly young distribution founded in 2002.
Does the installer support multiple languages? (0) English only.
Is the system localized after installation? (4) No, it needs to be done manuall after installation.
Is manual system localization easy? (7) Pretty easy and standard using configuration files editing.
Support for restricted formats (0) ?
Sagem DSL modem support (0) ?
Alcatel DSL modem support (6) ?
ISDN support (0) ?
Wireless support (0) ?
