Bridge Linux – Arch with "a human face”

Posted 05-05-2012 at 10:58 PM by ludvick

As a preliminary.

Maybe a bit on the recently growing wave of popularity of Arch Linux (I get the impression that many people just reach for this distribution), I made an attempt to install a 64-bit version of this system with KDE.

Because, I'm rather an individual, who loves comfort, I started from Chakra Linux. However, the "specific" approach of its creators to GTK applications (I use a few, and not everything is in the bundles), determined that I said...

Network Firewall Auditor and Checker for Linux

Posted 12-07-2011 at 12:54 PM by sudhagud
