Help

ArchWiki pages follow specific conventions, so if you have trouble reading ArchWiki or understanding some instructions, see Help:Reading for a clarification.

If looking for specific information, try using the search box to the left. Alternatively, use your favorite web search engine which likely provides a special syntax or interface for restricting results to a particular website (usually appending site:wiki.archlinux.org to the search terms is enough). See Help:Searching for other tricks.

Registrations of new accounts suspended temporarily

The registrations of new accounts for this wiki have been temporarily suspended due to repeated spam attacks. In order to create an account, check if your desired user name is available. Then, you can either join #archlinux-wiki on Freenode and ask one of the administrators in there to create the user for you (exchange your email details via pm), or you can email an administrator directly.

Hopefully, this will only be a short term workaround. Thank you for your patience.
