Minor edit mark

Thank you for your contributions to the wiki. Please mark your edits as minor when necessary, so readers can filter them with "non-minor edits" filter. Thank you. -- Thmeiov (talk) 12:17, 14 March 2022 (UTC)

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)

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about all these modules, I only found this thread on, which doesn't have all modules however and is already outdated.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!

DasMenschy (talk) 12:30, 28 August 2022 (UTC)

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.
--Erus Iluvatar (talk) 20:05, 20 September 2022 (UTC)


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 :)
--Erus Iluvatar (talk) 05:46, 21 September 2022 (UTC)

Thanks for the wiki page edits!

I intend User:Pongo1231/Arch on Steam Deck to be documentation of getting the Steam Deck UI fully working in Arch (alongside some opinionated sections like the Btrfs section), neither of which would obviously be a fit for Steam Deck. Of course I welcome any contributions to the page. :) -- Pongo1231 (talk) 22:14, 26 October 2022 (UTC)

Thanks ! I was going to link to it in a forum exchange but it was referring to the now inexistant section of the official page, and I saw a few things I would have modified if the page was an official one, so I figured it would be good to update your guide, I'm glad you're OK with it :)

ThinkPad Z13

Thanks for the revisions on my initial post. I also had not noticed the laptop guidelines earlier. The accessibility details about BIOS and beep codes, instructions for adding wacom file for the stylus, etc. should get added tonight or tomorrow. Soon, I plan to reformat, completely reset the BIOS, and reinstall Arch, so that should be a good opportunity to notice anything platform-specific that needs extra attention. I'll also bring anything notable in from the Lenovo Forums, as there are active discussions about current bugs and when/where to expect a fix. Take care! —PennRobotics 15:26, 21 February 2023 (UTC)

Well, thank you for adding the content in the first place! I'm just helping formatting things uniformly to help readability as a whole :)
Don't feel rushed to add things, take all the time you need and don't hesitate to add to the dedicated page on a subject (e.g. Tablet PC#Stylus) if they are not providing the correct generic information or are unclear. Platform specific stuff should stay on the laptop page though.

Acer Swift 3

Thank you so much for pointing out what I was missing in Acer Swift 3 SF314-512. I am new to this wiki and did read the guidelines but missed the requirement on some sections. If you don't mind, any further revisions would be appreciated. 0xlogn (talk) 21:43, 21 February 2023 (UTC)

I'm happy to have been helpful :)
Props for reading the guidelines, but there's always things that slip between the cracks: it still happens to me sometimes ^^
Do you want me to flag what I see as missing on the page or would you prefer that I list them here? (I'm going to sleep right now, will continue our exchange tomorrow)
--Erus Iluvatar (talk) 21:51, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
Either way is fine for me. Might as well flag it on the page in the case that I don't get back to it. 0xlogn (talk) 22:13, 21 February 2023 (UTC)
Done :)
Thank you again for your contribution! --Erus Iluvatar (talk) 07:19, 22 February 2023 (UTC)
I can't seem to find the webcam or bluetooth in lspci or lsusb. Also, I know that Fn+F8 is a logout key, but I don't know how to trap the key and determine what it sends. Also (added/adding) the footnotes from the function keys table now. --0xlogn (talk) 16:34, 22 February 2023 (UTC)
Thanks again :)
If the hardware probe is right, Bluetooth should be visible through USB: 8087:0033, the webcam should appear as a PCI device: 8086:465d.
For the keys, maybe try with a minimal environment like twm to avoid a possible interference from your desktop environment. See Help:Laptop page guidelines#Capturing function keys if it's being caught by systemd-logind instead.
--Erus Iluvatar (talk) 17:31, 22 February 2023 (UTC)
Both of those IDs from the probe were correct. I was expecting a more detailed description than Intel Corp. (bluetooth) and Intel Corporation Device (webcam).
I'll try to do the key in a little bit. Thank you!
--0xlogn (talk) 17:50, 22 February 2023 (UTC)
Thanks a bunch for double checking, I agree that the name used by lspci or lsusb is sometimes weird (e.g. some network card don't appear with their dedicated model number since they are close enough to an older one).
Take all the time you need, your page is already miles ahead of most "historical" ones (i.e. those created before having the laptop guidelines in place) :) --Erus Iluvatar (talk) 22:02, 22 February 2023 (UTC)


Thanks for reviewing my changes on the Lenovo_Yoga_7i page, you definitely improved the presentation of the information a lot. Plus you helped me understand the mkinitcpio warnings too. My first time editing Arch Wiki went great!

Edits on the Dell G15 5525 Page

Hi, thanks for your review of the Dell G15 5525 Page! It is my first contribution to the wiki, and even though I read the guidelines, I have missed some recommendations. I updated the page, please let me know if there is any other info I should add!

—This unsigned comment is by Verge36 (talk) 2023-03-10T22:06:25. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Hi! Thank you very much for your contribution. As I had written in my edit summary, the very few things that were missing were minor details: I'm happy to see you came back and fixed everything :)
I've removed the style flag, but I also adjusted the hardware table, the PCI ID you had added for the microphone seems to be for an audio co-processor that is GPU-related (from the kernel config summary, it's related to "Yellow Carp" which is the codename for the Rembrandt family). I also used a Template:Yes for audio, since even if an unapproved kernel patch is needed, it's a simple addition to a list of hardware quirks, so nothing that should have unintended effect and the hardware works with the patch, so we can't say the support is "partial" as it's for parts that still do not work correctly with applied modifications.
Once again, a huge thanks, many hardware pages get much less polish than what you made!
Edit: You might also want to add an entry into Laptop/Dell#G15 to sum up the hardware support for your model :)

Thanks for tidying up

Thanks for sweeping up my half-asleep scrawl! Especially the battery part, I remembered that last and stuffed it in without checking the rest of the wiki first :D.

Much appreciated.

Sorry for messing up and thank you

Hi, sorry for messing up the VirtualBox/Install Arch Linux as a guest page. I read the page twice and didnt see that the stuff which I added was already on the page, i must have been pretty tired, sorry! And thank you.

DexyStorm (talk) 10:21, 18 April 2023 (UTC)

Don't worry, if you did not see it it's probably because if was not at the best place in the logical reading order of the page, thanks for trying to improve the page anyway :)
