Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"One of the many things Arch and Slackware have in common is
good documentation. We use both distributions for some years and
never had a problem that did not get solved by using the Arch wiki,
Slackbook or IRC channels. We will try to be as complete as
possible, but should you encounter a problem, feel free to profit
from free and quality knowledge.
So, you want to install an application and can't find it in the
Arch repositories. No need to panic, chances are you'll find a
build script in AUR, which stands for Arch User Repository. As you
can see, you are invited to read the guidelines in order to get
familiar with what AUR is and what makes it tick.
