@jakob don't be surprised if one or more super important packages like X11 cause kernel panics because the port didn't build properly or some use flag you didn't know to set or unset wasn't set or unset.
also you might be able to gut systemd from arch but it's going to complicate life.
@icedquinn Thanks for the tip. I'll look at the process for removing systemd from Arch, but I've had a lot of people tell me it's awful so I'll probably just end up distro hopping
@jakob don't forget to add png to the USEFLAGS.
Compiling the desktop environment isn't so much fun that you'll want to do it twice.
@jakob Just take your time and read the documents. :) It can perhaps feel a bit overwhelming coming from something binary and simple as Arch.
