    Archlinux Forum Question


    I guess the Arch Linux forum is indicative of the OS's "advancedness" (not sure what the appropriate term would be). Anyways,

    the "security" question for Linux Forums:

    What is 1 + 11 (as a number)?


    the security question for Arch Linux Forums:

    What is the output of "date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'"?>


    .... I have not been able to figure out the question yet - I am not even advanced enough to use the Arch Linux forums.

    So far ArchBang is going well for me, but now I'm scared to install Arch Linux.

    Don't be afraid. Arch really isn't that hard at all. Just dive in and have fun.

    Try opening your terminal and issuing the following command:

    Code:
    sudo date -u +%W$(uname)|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'
    Take the resulting string of numbers and put that where the forum wants you to put it.

    Every now and then someone comes here to ask about the answer for the Arch Forums registration question. The key is the "What is the output" part of the question. That will usually require entering certain data into a terminal to get the output.
