    So I updated my Arch install after a few months, 700mb. After a restart Slim isn't working, and on top of that due to a bug in my laptop after the nVidia drivers have been loaded I can't drop into any terminal sessions...

    I think I said this already..
    You're using enlightenment which is NOT E17, you're using Enlightenment 16. Install e-svn and e-modules-extra-svn from pacman, that'll give you e17.
    I successfully installed those two packages, restarted Enlightenment, but lo and behold, it still isn't E17.

    Pardon me, I used exec e16 instead of exec enlightenment_start in .xinitrc. Thank you anyway!

    Also, if you want a less dreadful e17 theme go take a look at the SVN repo..the THEMES directory has a couple nice ones, especially detourious
    (I hope you know how to use SVN)

    Did you read all of the news on archlinux.org to see if there were any updates that require manual steps since the last time you did a full upgrade?

    Last time I checked, nobody here is in charge of IT for a large enterprise, which means we really don't care.
    I run CentOS on my personal VPS because I don't want to dick around with updates that break things on something like Arch.

    I don't want to update Apache one day then find out my website isn't working any more. (as an example)

    The main difference is that by default, the server edition doesn't have a GUI installed so instead need to use SSH

    Oh hell no.
    I like my GUI.

    Going for the desktop version instead.

    Edited:

    Or is it like Arch so you can set up manually a GUI?

    If you go to the update manager, it will tell you there's an dist upgrade. It will then download all the packages (can be over 1000). Once its done that, it'll install them and you'll need to restart your computer

    It's pretty standard since you'll switching from one version to another. You don't have to upgrade yet...

    It came with ubuntu server to advertise 'landscape', however it should be possible to edit the motd to show the stats
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    cores=$(grep -c ^processor /proc/cpuinfo 2>/dev/null)
    [ "$cores" -eq "0" ] && cores=1
    threshold="${cores:-1}.0"
    if [ $(echo "`cut -f1 -d ' ' /proc/loadavg` < $threshold" | bc) -eq 1 ]; then
        echo
        echo -n "  System information as of "
        /bin/date
        echo
        /usr/bin/landscape-sysinfo
    else
        echo
        echo " System information disabled due to load higher than $threshold"
    fi
    That's what I found digging around my motd

    Anything you recommend i do?

    Also, i installed compiz and enabled wobbly windows.
    When i move windows, the "title" of the window and the showing window itself get's "seperated" so there comes this white line when moving it around?

    Silly me, installed mpg123 and made it play a song.. Needless to say, I had to listen to the whole Jazz song

    What would be the tiniest audio player out there for Arch?

    mpd + ncmpcpp or cmus, and if you want something that isn't terminal based I guess deadbeef is pretty good.

    This is what i mean.. People are like: "arch, arch, arch", but isn't arch just a distro with aur and such?

    Because i am used to Ubuntu, and i wan't it on my main PC. But i also care about the customization and looks.

    You can do any costumization on any distro.
    Basically distros are just a pack of default programs with linux kernel. You can always install anything if you have most of the basic build tools (gcc make perl etc) or if you have a package manager, you can install kde, xfce on Ubuntu/Fedora, and you can costumize all the inner workings of the kernel.
    Most people prefer Arch and Gentoo because they come with a nice package manager/ports-like system and they come with no DE/WM so people can install a clean environment of their own with no bloat.

    First decide what you want, a stable distro, a distro with fast access for the latest binary releases, or a completely costum and fast distro with latest apps. Then do a little research what each distro comes with and what it features.

    speed and stability are number one for me, then productivity. Customization is barely on the list at all.

    This usually leaves me using a cutting (not bleeding, never bleeding) edge debian build.
