※ If you have an existing
user, when you create a new user, take notes of the
-M flags for
useradd. You don't want to use
-m and some guides will tell you, 'cause that creates a new
/home dir. You can use
-M to be sure one won't be created.
※ Furthermore, if you have existing partitions don't mount them during installation, just add them to the

Audio on Linux should mostly just work, but if you're interested in music making it takes a bit of messing round setting up a thing (an audio server, like X is a display server) called JACK.

Antergos is a basically Arch with a swish-o installer and an extra repo. It likes to Antergoserise (IE brand with it's wonky logo) things like Grub and LightDM, though that's repairable. It's easy enough to stop it it installing a bunch of extra stuff, as opposed to Manjaro(?).

Just ran into a little problem where a disk error took out a bit of my pacman database.
This was giving me an error about a

/var/lib/pacman/local, and reinstalled the database only with
pacman -U –dbonly [package].pkg.tar.xz
