If you are like me, you value speed over much else. While sudo is great, Doas is an alternative to sudo that is faster and has a cleaner codebase. If you would like the utility of sudo with a more speedy and less bloated experience, I am going to show you how you can install and use Doas on an Arch Linux machine.

Why use aur/doas over community/opendoas?


Upstream sources are different. It’s literally not the same software, even though their goal is similar : porting doas to Linux.


What’s funny is that typing yay -S doas actually resolve to yay -S opendoas. It’s aliased. To install the one from AUR, you must do yay -S aur/doas


permit root as nobody

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
