    Stable arch derivative

    I loaded Arch (I had planned to move all my laptops to LMDE) and so far its proving more stable (for me at least) than its derivatives. Found this installer with Calamares and several diff windows managers. https://sourceforge.net/projects/ezarch/

    Limited Wifi connectivity (closed)

    Most of my laptops are LMDE including work. If they offered KDE, "ALL" would be LMDE. For my money the best distro out there.

    Limited Wifi connectivity (closed)

    Hey wiz, Thanks for that. I'll close this off. Have decided to move to MX Linux. I think my three year experiment with Arch has come to an end. I'm really busy at the moment too, so I don't have time to troubleshoot things on an on going basis. Linux Lite, that's an NZ distribution. I had it...

    Limited Wifi connectivity (closed)

    Logged into Endeavour and suddenly find my Wifi has limited connectivity with a small yellow exclamation mark next to the wifi icon. I'd post output but of course I can't connect to the internet so, well....(I'm working from my LMDE laptop for the time being). Has anyone else had this problem...

    Firewall turns itself off....(SOLVED).

    Thanks. I'm not too fussed, just so long as it works. I am more familiar with UFW as most of my laptops are LMDE. Only one is Arch.

    Is there some way to close off the thread and mark it solved? Ignore that question, sorted.

    Firewall turns itself off....(SOLVED).

    All solved, thanks again to everyone for their kind help. This is what happens when you change distro's....LOL.

    Firewall turns itself off....(SOLVED).

    Hey many thanks. Its already installed and hopefully working. More complex than what I am used to? Not sure how to check its status, I'll do a read up there.

    Firewall turns itself off....(SOLVED).

    This is the problem with distro hopping, everyone does things a little differently. Hey thanks, I'll take a look and see what the story is.

    Firewall turns itself off....(SOLVED).

    Running Arch derivative EndeavourOS. Have noticed the firewall keeps turning itself off. Have run sudo ufw enable and sudo ufw status which states its "active" but then I check on it again, a couple of log off/in's later and its off, again. Anyone else experienced this?

    Stable arch derivative

    Thanks everyone for the lively feedback. After testing Arcolinux, OpenSUSE and Endeavour, finally settled on Endeavour. Had to manually add in Pamac which I missed from Manjaro and after making a few tweaks here and there, its running really well. Just need to see how it goes stability wise.

    Stable arch derivative

    That is very helpful. Thanks. I may just go for the original rather than a derivative. Funnily enough I also have an old HP mini laptop I transferred to Linux Mint after lots of aggravation with Windows 8.Its never run better.

    That has been true for me until this year.

    Stable arch derivative

    I've mostly had a really good experience with Arch which is why I'm keen to keep using it. I do have Debian in the form of Mint LMDE on another laptop and its excellent too but lacks things I love about Arch.

    Stable arch derivative

    Was installation difficult, I have heard pure Arch requires some effort?

    Stable arch derivative

    Honestly I have had few issues with Arch/Manjaro in terms of stability until this year. On balance I I typically find it no more or less stable than say Ubuntu based Mint which was my go to for a long time until it became less stable/buggy.

    Stable arch derivative

    Hi Chris, 76 , that must keep you busy! I mostly have no issue trouble shooting Manjaro its just gotten to the point where, on balance, its not worth it anymore, as the problems keeps multiplying. I will say if anyone knows how to use Formost to recover files any advice there would be...

    Stable arch derivative

    Archbuntu LOL. I have both Arch derivative in the form of Manjaro and Mint LMDE based laptops. Both have been really good but for some reason the last 12 months has seen a lot of bugs surface in Manjaro that simply hang around. Troubleshooting has become a full time pass time. So moving on. I...
