How to install Archlinux on a acer emachines em350 ?


Do a 64 bits version will work better if the cpu is 64 bits capable ?

Can I remove all added stuffs on Archbang or CTKArchLive to return to plain Archlinux with openbox that I can configure myself easily, so I can install Archlinux faster ?

I tried and installed Arch properly but I need to install the broadcom bcm 4727 driver (b43,wl,sta,open source), which driver do I need and how can I install it by my usb on Archlinux CLI made with base, sudo and wireless_tools only ?

I'd suggest installing arch into a virtual environment until you get a feel for it. The Beginners guide wiki is VERY complete, but you must pay very close attention to detail. Are you familiar with other UNIX-like systems?

I used archlinux before and many distros, my problem is my wifi, I can use the bcm4727 or a yagi usb antenna with an atheros chipset zydas1211b ...

I could now use openbox to install it by my usb key ...
