Thanks bb010g, I'll try this out before next time I upgrade (with the necessary modifications obviously, because I have no EFI, but that should work :P ).
I used the /etc/fstab way and mounted/binded /boot to the place where I have to put the kernel. I guess it works.
Installing linux automatically puts the kernel there, right?
Yep. The kernel goes in /boot.

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

conky really isn't worth the time and the effort. it looks nice, but in the end it's a resource watcher that hogs resources itself. you should take a look at vicious; it embeds things directly in a wiibox and sets timers for grabbing different resources so they're only checked when they need to be instead of all together. that + a quick call to htop when you're actually curious about what exactly is using up your resources would accomplish the same goal without being as taxing.
Who said it was easy to waste resources on my PC ? :trollface:
Also thanks for the suggestion bb010g but in that case I'd rather use Vicious because it allows graphics and it integrates into Awesome fairly well.

How is awesome doing now, anyway? I used it a while ago, but ended up switching to xmonad because of the lack of documentation for the git version. Has it gotten better about not breaking configs between updates?

Haven't seen any update to it in the Arch repo in a while. From what I see in the wiki it seems to break compatibility every two versions or so. :P Didn't have to face that yet though.. Yet.

Numix & Numix shine, paid icon pack (strangely found them free in deviantArt linking to the original pages)

Well, it's located somewhere else
As for numix-shine
I wrongly thought of Numix Squared which is paid.

Yeah, it's heavy, full of crap useless features and quite the glossy/overgradient thing. AwesomeWM is way better but i have to cope with Unity....

Hmm, nice. During my theming session I switched to Numix too (a solarized color variant I found), with the Numix circles icons.

I installed arch on my laptop this weekend. I got most things sorted out now.
This is what it looks like now:

you should just get rid of the wiibox if you're going to have another panel. things will go popping up in different trays depending on when you start them :P
