3 Going over the help reading

Things I keep in mind after reading the article

  • # is for root (might need sudo depending on situation)
  • $ is for regular user (no sudo required)
  • # can also be used as comment in config files
  • create directory is mkdir /mnt/boot
  • > to redirect the output like echo hostname > /etc/hostname
  • >> to append text at the bottom of a file like echo test >> /etc/pacman.conf
  • ~ or $HOME point to my home directory like this /home/erik
  • source to reload your changed .bashrc file like source ~/.bashrc
  • install foobar is actually sudo pacman -S foobar
  • start service is actually sudo systemctl start service
