Arya Linux is like no other distro I've ever installed - and I've installed a few. Basically it is a collection of build scripts that the ALPS package installer runs to put the system together. I got the ISO downloaded OK and built the Virtual Machine. The ISO ran well out of the Box. It's a rather barebones Xfce desktop.
To install Arya Linux had to use Gparted in the ISO to set up a basic root partition and swap. Then the installer worked through a massive number of scripts. At the end I was able to boot into the Hard Drive installation.
The only desktop resolution available is 640X480 which is pretty skimpy on a 24 inch monitor. I don't see any possible way to install the Guest Additions. There is no build script for them and obviously the Guest Additions shell script won't fly.
I don't know if HJ has any suggestions about how to get a bigger screen resolution. I didn't see a lot of info in Google and a couple of the tutorials appear to be on dodgy websites according to ESET.
That's about all I know so far. Arya Linux is interesting but if I were Manjaro or MX-16 I wouldn't be too worried - yet.
