Just downloaded and installed on Vbox OB Revenge based on Arch. it uses the Calamares Installer. It is kind of Neat. It has a menu on the background telling what key combinations to use for different things.

Interesting, I will have to check it out in virt/qemu. Does it use custom repos with AUR enabled or vanilla sources? Basically is it simply an installer for Archlinux or is there more. I seen a mention of the Revenge tool.

DistroWatch review from February: https://www.distrowa...?issue=20170227

Like securitybreach, I'm wondering about the repos.

mhbell (or anyone else who has OBRevenge up and running), would you mind posting the contents of the /etc/pacman.conf file?

I will when I get home but it will be about 6 hours from now as I am at work. I downloaded it this morning to try out in a VM.

Sort of looks like the Antergos model - use the Arch repos mostly and have a separate Revenge repo for specific needs/features.

Yep. Except in my Antergos installation, the default had the antergos repo above the core, extra, and community repos. I've since moved the antergos repo to the end, like where the revenge_repo is there.

Hm, Antergos also had multilib enabled, but I commented that one out.

Here's the default /etc/pacman.conf I had in Antergos:
