Is discourse working on ArchLinux now?


#1

Hi!

Is there anyone who tested Discourse on Archlinux nowadays? I just like ArchLinux. There is no unnecessary packages installed by default. So I want to install discourse on it. But I don’t want to reset my current system so I need to verify if it is working or not… Any idea?

First port of call is, does Docker work on ArchLinux?

As far as I know, yes it is. I can see docker package on archlinux repo and also I can see a page for archlinux in docker documentation.

It should work then. If you’re paranoid, you could install Archlinux on a USB drive without mucking up your hard drive.

Yes it works. At least a few months ago when I set it up for testing on a ArchLinux VPS with 2GB of RAM. :wink:
