Just some notes from installing Arch Linux. Will come back and clean this article up.

Don’t Forget

Install and enable NTPD https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network_Time_Protocol_daemon

GUI and Graphics

Nvidia GTX 1070 -> install nvidia package. nvidia-libgl fine.

lightdm + i3 + termite

Replace dmenu with https://github.com/enkore/j4-dmenu-desktop <– sooo dope

Japanese Fonts

Don’t forget your Japanese fonts if you are an insufferable weeb.

sudo pacman -S adobe-source-han-sans-jp-fonts sudo pacman -S otf-ipafont

Virtualbox and Vagrant

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VirtualBox#Installation_steps_for_Arch_Linux_hosts https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Vagrant

pacman -S virtualbox vagrant and then choose virtualbox-host-modules-arch.

You are gonna probably need nfs https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NFS

I had to install net-tools to get nfs working.
