Arch is finally booting on my x230! It took a long time, but I'm quite happy that I've managed it. There's not much going on for the moment (not even a GUI), but the hard drive encryption is working!

I'm getting huge 1998-era Slackware vibes from Arch. Hello, old friend xinit!

Also, I now have 62 tabs open, half of them from the Arch wiki and another 20ish from work stuff.

@gueorgui Slackware was the first distribution I ever tried and I remember having a lot of difficulty configuring XFree86 for my monitor back then!

@amdt You and me and everyone else who has tried setting up Slackware back then!
