A great news awaits for all the Linux users as Qtum puts much efforts in enhancing the usage of linux tools. Yesterday, the open-source public blockchain platform, QTUM published an Arch User Repository (AUR) package for Arch Linux-based System. This allows the users to get a complete and working installation of Qtum using the system package tools they already know and use.
The AUR is a community-driven repository for Arch users, and also this particular repository is maintained by the Qtum Chain Foundation. However, it shouldn’t imply an endorsement from the Linux Foundation or community.
Basically, the Arch User Repository (AUR) compiles Qtum on Arch Linux System generating a menu entry. This entry is available on all desktops. It is possible to build the release on Arch or any Arch Linux-based distribution. Moreover, the qtum recommend to use source package, as people can trust the final build. Also they can take advantage of the optimizations that Arch Linux adds through makepkg.conf config file.
Most importantly, Arch Linux is its own entity in the Linux ecosystem. For instance, Ubuntu is based on Debian and Centos on Redhat. Basically, Arch is a rolling distribution, this means that it always uses the latest sources and tools via frequent updates. Generally, the system will update on Arch systems as newer stable versions of each package comes out. Arch also has a few different distributions based on it as well with the Manjaro.
