Help

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 for restricting results to a particular website (usually appending site:wiki.archlinux.org to the search terms is enough).

You must create an account to edit this wiki. Once done, you can play around in the Sandbox or your user page to familiarize yourself with ArchWiki markup. The available syntax is listed in Category:Help along with other helpful resources.
