After you follow the other guides and create the image boot up and resize the partition. Make sure to run pacman -Syu to uprade everything.

Install Sudo

 pacman -S sudo

#To give your regular user permission to use sudo, you need to edit the configuration file using visudo:
EDITOR=nano visudo

#Locate the section marked as:
## User privilege specification
#and uncomment the line below to say
 %wheel ALL=(ALL) ALL

#Save and exit.


Nothing beats the Arch Linux Wiki its packed with useful information about how to configure everything. For wifi i used Netcfg


see the docs

# To install ruby run
pacman -S ruby

# add this to your PATH variable
PATH="`ruby -e 'print Gem.user_dir'`/bin:$PATH"

# for bundle to work correctly
export GEM_HOME=$(ruby -e 'print Gem.user_dir')
