You're right, I should be more careful on this. Thank you for reminding me ! --Erus Iluvatar (talk) 12:30, 14 March 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for the edits on the Virt-Manager page

Thanks for the recent edits you made im pretty new to ArchWiki/MediaWiki and suck formatting so thanks for fixing my bad formating ShinobuNarusaka (talk)

$include Readline question

Hi, thanks for your work. I've seen that you have added a space in Readline#History. `man bash` (and some blogs) have no space in "$include /etc/inputrc". Do you have any reference? --Marzal (talk) 22:19, 14 April 2022 (UTC)

Hi, thanks for pointing out my mistake: I had read the section too quickly and concluded this line was missing a space between the prompt and the command, but this is not the case. I've reverted my edit, sorry for the confusion. --Erus Iluvatar (talk) 03:43, 15 April 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for improving the edit

Thanks for correcting the info, and naming it the 5000 series rather than Ryzen 9 or 5. AMD Ryzen series are even more ambiguous than Intel. AMD Ryzen 5xxx series processor could be Ryzen 5(5600x), Ryzen 9(5950x), or Ryzen 7(5800x). Currently using Ryzen 9 5950x and Ryzen 9 5900x on two of my desktops, on Windows they consume 100 watts less power and my current linux setup, so was looking into that article and was thinking of making the switch from Pop OS to Arch Linux. —This unsigned comment is by Gagan0123 (talk) 2022-06-17T04:56:21.

Hi! I saw the ambiguousness of the existing wording when finishing to revert your edit, so instead of having more people tripping on it I tried to make it better :)
Good luck on your journey ! --Erus Iluvatar (talk) 05:28, 17 June 2022 (UTC)

Signature is unknown trust

Thanks for the edits! They made it easier to find the solution. --Topcat01 (talk)

Credit where credit is due: User:Lahwaacz did 99.99% of the work, I've only fixed a capitalization issue. --Erus Iluvatar (talk) 20:26, 29 July 2022 (UTC)

Unified Extensible Firmware Interface/Secure Boot

Hi Erus Iluvatar, thank you for improving my contributions to the Unified Extensible Firmware Interface/Secure Boot article! Especially the formatting.

Do you think it is necessary to include an explanation what all the "basic" GRUB modules are doing, in the first code block? I couldn't find any good documentation about all these modules, I only found this thread on, which doesn't have all modules however and is already outdated. The official GNU GRUB manual has no documentation at all about the modules.

Do you think dividing the list of GRUB modules into these three parts, as done in the official Ubuntu build script, is meaningful, or is it arbitrarily / nonsensical?

Thank you in advance for an answer!

Hi! First of all, thank you for creating the content in the first place!
Regarding the creation of a dedicated section about GRUB modules: if you are motivated to create it, an explanation on GRUB modules would probably be a great fit for the GRUB page. I'm not sure where exactly it could fit though. Depending on the length, maybe creating GRUB/Modules could be appropriate? From a quick search in the page right now, nowhere do we explain what a "GRUB module" actually is even though we refer to them roughly 20 times!
Regarding the split into three parts: as for every classification, it is arbitrary, but nothing ever is truly neutrally written anyway :P It is logical given the reference material, and IMO feels like a good starting point for a reader trying to set up Secure Boot without wanting to include every existing modules.
Thank you again for your contributions.

Template:Archive in user pages


I saw your edits about Archive template in user pages, I put those following the discussion here because I didn't know of a better way to delete them. What's the proper way to get rid of those then ? Thanks ! (Bonne journée !)

-- Cvlc (talk) 15:01, 16 September 2022 (UTC)

You're completely right to have followed the advice of User:Lahwaacz on that, I am not allowed to delete pages as a simple maintainer, I'll try to catch an Administrator to remove those.
Do you also want the User:Cvlc/Storage Layout and Alignment and User:Cvlc/Sector Size redirects deleted too?
As for a generic way to delete pages, as far as I know it is not possible even for you own pages… I'll see if we can document this properly somewhere.
--Erus Iluvatar (talk) 15:11, 16 September 2022 (UTC)

You were right about /var filling up.

After testing for 2 weeks straight and installing/uninstalling random packages, it turns out that /var does in fact fill all the way up non-stop. Maybe that won't happen for a regular user because they wouldn't be spamming packages, but that's IMO enough for me to leave behind my suggestion of removing it off the Wiki, but yet again the decision is up to you whether it should stay on Partitioning or not. Cont999 (talk) 19:50, 20 September 2022 (UTC)

I'm a little relieved to see that I was not completely missing the mark on the usage of /var :P
I'll be waiting for the result of the ongoing discussion at Talk:Partitioning#Separate /var: IMO keeping the sections as is should be good enough, but maybe a better wording on their actual relevance (or absence thereof) for a common setup can be achieved.

Thank you for the improvements you made to the pages I created! Steffo (talk) 02:27, 21 September 2022 (UTC)

And thank you for creating the pages in the first place: I'm just trying to get the form to compliment the content :)

Dear Erus, can you please check my reply about an Undo you've dono at Home_Assistant_Supervised. Kind regards. Rokam (talk) 18:17, 23 September 2022 (UTC)
