I am an old newbie here.
I have been using Endeavour OS last few weeks and I like it!
A couple of years ago I came to the conclusion that “vanilla” Arch takes more time than I have. Then I found Archlabs, and I like that very much but the mirrors for their repo are too slow (50k at the most) for me up here in North Scandinavia!
EOS is working very well and less then 10 min to install!
I had som troubles installing on an old mac-mini 4,1 (mid 2010) but I found an Ubuntu-tweak to make it work! Nouveau is difficult on my mac-mini.
Now I am writing from a HP-ProBook 640 G1 and it is very compatible with linux!
I see in fstab tmpfs. Is that acting as swapspace instead of swapfile/swap partition?
I’m a bit surprised at that. Arch includes a systemd timer which performs a weekly discard. I was under the impression that was generally regarded as a better option. There were some problems with that timer a little while ago, but there is a solution suggested in that thread. I’d remove any discard from fstab and make sure the timer is activated.
If what you have in your /etc/fstab is the same as c00ter, it should be safe to remove it if you really want to. However, it has nothing to do with swap. I would probably not remove it unless you have a reason to.
That being said, I don’t know if it will matter or not since the default rules on Arch should put /tmp on a tmpfs anyway.
As an example, both of my EOS machines look like this:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a device; this may
# be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices that works even if
# disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
UUID=61C3-8D4F /boot/efi vfat umask=0077 0 2
UUID=800aada3-9603-40fb-ba82-0a97001e08ac / ext4 defaults,noatime 0 1
[dalto@eos ~]$ df -h

/dev/sda1 300M 280K 300M 1% /boot/efi
tmpfs 391M 12K 391M 1% /run/user/1000
As you can see, nothing in /etc/fstab but /tmp is still mounted on tmpfs.
