Did you installed Arch in the right way?
The only Arch installation method is here.
Since 22 years, i use Linux. After redhat, suse, gentoo, fedora, debian
stable,testing and sid, i went to Arch. I get rare problems with Arch,
less than with other distributions (except with venerable debian/stable)
To become happy Arch user:
First, very important: use linux-lts all and "lts" or "still" packages
you can find. Non lts kernels *are not* stable. Then, don't update each
day. Then, when you do something, you have to know what you are doing.
