the Arch Linux thread

Neo

.
Anyone facing a problem with WiFi getting hard blocked after waking up from suspend? My card is Realtek 8723BE
Nothing seems to fix it but a reboot

I know it's a common problem but wondering if someone has a solution

Yeah Realtek cards suck on Linux.
That solution you linked seems like it's for a different issue. I have tried everything Google has to offer but in vain.

Thanks though

i have fedora as my second os right now.i want to install vanilla arch(consider me a bit too curious :] ) replacing my win 10 ,i already deleted windows partitions to make enough space for it ,downloaded iso from indian mirror(iitk.ac.in) .checked signature

gpg --keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve --verify archlinux-2021.09.01-x86_64.iso.sig
gpg: assuming signed data in 'archlinux-2021.09.01-x86_64.iso'
gpg: Signature made Wednesday 01 September 2021 04:58:32 PM IST
gpg: using RSA key 4AA4767BBC9C4B1D18AE28B77F2D434B9741E8AC
gpg: issuer "pierre@archlinux.de"
gpg: Good signature from "Pierre Schmitz <pierre@archlinux.de>" [unknown]
gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg: There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
Primary key fingerprint: 4AA4 767B BC9C 4B1D 18AE 28B7 7F2D 434B 9741 E8AC

its saying good signature and still warns me.am i doing something wrong here or am i good to go and install?

Unless you are using some script to install, I suggest not installing it on your machine directly if it's your first time installing Arch. Practice installing it on a VM before you attempt to install it on actual hardware.

yea .but my pc is like a vm anyways, 4gigs ram and pentium g4560. But everything worked out fine. Although i'm unsure which dock to use might change de too.it was kde that i concluded yesterday.

In order to ensure i'm installing correctly i did use sites like linuxiac and youtube channels like distrotube and some other channels although i used 'cfdisk' to partition and it was easier that way than what was used by the guides,
on my fedora after removing both xfce and gnome i installed kde ,but at default it consumed 1.5gb(minus 200mb for system monitor)
so i wanted to see how a vanilla arch consumes :](Kde neon would be fine but i may not settle with this de,)

I'd suggest choose one DE and stick with it. Try not to install multiple DEs simultaneously because that will introduce a lot of bloat.

yes.thats true .i'm considering to settle with fedora with gnome dash to dock(i im a sucker for the app drawer on old gnome ,top to bottom i think i used it on 18.10 linux ) ,and be satisfied with kde on arch for now. if i need to i'll remove everything and install another one so that any glitch could be avoided i guess
