Hi there !
Here is the new CTKArch website and its forums, hope you like them!

I hope we'll be able to exchange in English / French without problems.
That's why I would really appreciate it if you could write your messages in the two languages, if you can! (of course it's not worth using automatic translators if you can't speak french)

Salut !
Voilà le nouveau site CTKArch et son forum, j'espère qu'ils vous plairont !

J'espère que nous pourrons échanger en anglais / français sans que cela pose de problème.
C'est pourquoi j'aimerais beaucoup si vous pouviez écrire vos messages dans les deux langues, si vous pouvez ! (ce n'est pas non plus la peine d'utiliser un traducteur automatique si vous ne parlez pas anglais)

I have tried the 0.6 release live cd and have been very impressed.
I will be installing soon on a new SSD.
Looking forward to compare with ArchBang...

About design…
The main point is the add-ons system. You can add all the stuff you want to the live system and installation! :)

Then, I want to provide the best (free, open-source!) hardware support possible.
That is why I integrated Intel, ATI and especially nVidia nouveau drivers. Archbang has some of my scripts for that in its latest version, that's good!
Well, about that, it's Arch and upstream. We just profit!

And of course, the idea of "keeping it light" is extreme in ctkarch — nothing more than the bare minimum is loaded at startup.
<troll>archbang still has HAL, what are you waiting for guys? :P </troll>
There was some discussion about all that in this bbs topic.

There is too much differences of design and "goals" between the two to make it one only project (yet?), but sharing improvements between the projects is great!

Très bonne idée d'avoir fait un forum, je pense que ça peut faciliter l'échange entre les communautés ! Je l'ajoute à mes marques pages de ce pas !
J'espère que tout se passera bien :-)
Having made a forum is a very good idea, I think this can make the exchange easier between the two communities ! Adding it to my bookmarks right now !
I hope all will be ok on the forum :-)
Save the penguins, burn the flags !

Je suis un assidu du forum arch fr
Celui de CTK ne pourrait-il pas intégrer ce dernier (comme pour Chakra) ? histoire d'éviter l'éparpillement.
En effet, de nombreux topics concerne la ctk et sont postés sur arch forum (je pense dernièrement au pb d'affichage avec  rxvt où j'ai du jongler sur les 2 forums...)

Je ne comprends pas "ce forum pourrait-il intégrer le forum archlinux.fr" : évidemment que non, c'est juste un petit forum, hein (et un petit projet).
À la limite, le contraire, j'aurais compris, mais là… je crois que je ne comprends pas ce que tu veux dire.

Les gens qui vont sur forums.archlinux.fr pour parler de choses spécifiques à l'utilisation de la config ctkarch, devraient venir ici.
Je t'encourage à le leur dire.

En revanche, je refuse (très souplement, mais quand-même) de faire du support archlinux général sur ce forum.
Il y a bien plus d'utilisateurs en mesure de répondre sur forums.archlinux.fr, c'est là qu'il faut aller.
Et puis, je ne suis pas responsable des dépôts archlinux. Même si j'y suis très intéressé, ce n'est pas à moi qu'il faut s'adresser.

Par exemple, installer cups sur une installation archlinux faite avec ctkarch c'est pareil que sur une autre ; et dans ces cas-là, je préfèrerais que les gens regardent le wiki, et le cas échéant demandent sur forums.archlinux.fr (ou bbs.archlinux.org).

Bon, comme je disais, c'est souple, donc si ça déborde un peu ici, c'est pas un souci… c'est juste pas le but.
Les gens ne peuvent pas forcément savoir ce qui peut être impacté par le fait d'avoir installé avec ce live-cd, tout ça.

Enfin bref, j'ai pas compris "intégrer" dans ta phrase.

Liked archbang ... am a resource miser. Cause my system has low specs. ( 512mbs/ram, by todays standards my comp is on welfare ... resourcewise).

Found mention of this derivative of arch mentioned somewhere and you ( the creator ) sound like a talented guy with the same goals people like myself luv from linuxy goodness. Speed, performance and ultralight on overhead.

Still debating the install atm. What I've read of your posts ... Sure does seem like ctk would be exactly what someone like me is looking for in the nix world. Either way, think it's amazing what people like you and all the other talented nix devs of the world can do. Putting gazillion dollar corps and the army of devs they must have to shame lol n must be in your spare time. Crazy !

Can't speak French, can barely speak English, my native tongue. People are always telling me my grammar is atrocious. Just wanted to say hi ya and at least encourage or say thank you to guys who push alternatives like linux forward. Thank You ...

Hola, me sorprendio la facilidad con que he podido disfrutar del live-cd. Ha funcionado a la perfeccion en mi maquina intel pentium 4 desktop board d101ggc con una giga de ram y tarjeta wireless d-link. Gran trabajo. Muchos exitos.

Hi all,
Bienvenue :)
Unfortuately my french is extremely limited, even my English is full of typos, Lol
But well, 1st of all, great work on the CTKArch <- Thankyou.
I came to CTKArch becuase I wanted to know how "cp2ram" really worked, and I guess I found the source of it. That is such a cool script...
Salut !

A little introduction:
I'm not new to Unix, many moons ago I was a Sun/Solaris sys admin, alas, those days are long gone now, in fact so has Sun Microsystems :( 
But I really like Arch with it's simplicity and BSD-style init scripting, which is about as close as I will get these days to my older Solaris. :)

Thanks again, and I hope CTKarch continues it's long and healthy life.

About the cp2ram script, it's unstable and nothing to be proud of…
The other implementation (in the initramfs) is cleaner, when choosing "Copy to ram" at boot.

btw: will "Copy to ram" still work ok with the new Arch kernel 3.* ?  (whenever you finally realease a new CTKarch 0.8 with a stable 3.* kernel).
I heard that aufs2 will be dropped, and will this impact in any way the ability to copy to ram, similar to how ctkarch has done it in the past. ?

Excuse me, but I'm just trying to understand this all, a bit more. In fact, I may be way off here. ;)

Thankyou again.

Indeed it will.
Linux 3.0 is just Linux 2.6.40 with a change in the numbering scheme and nothing else.

There were no more changes between 2.6.39 and 3.0 than between 2.6.38 and 2.6.39. Yes. Really.

AUFS2 was dropped by the archlinux maintainers, but I've immediately continued maintaining it in AUR.
And it's AUFS3 now, as of Linux kernel 3.0.

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=51334 (the kernel I *have* to maintain that enables compatibility with AUFS, wich was dropped in archlinux's default kernel, grrr)
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=51972 (AUFS3)
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=51980 (AUFS3 utilities)

Dropping AUFS would have meant no more addons, but would not have prevented copy to ram. The kernel feature used for copy to ram is TMPFS, and believe me, it will not be dropped anytime soon.
