comment how to install any linux distribution from existing ubuntu
Directly from your installed distro is possible too but the exact way depends on the distribution. See Archlinux, Debian, Gentoo ... The general idea is create your partition, get a base system on it, chroot to finish installing and configuring things.

comment How to fork multiple processes from a same parent?
This is not a problem with fork but a simple logic problem. fork() returns 0 in the child. Trace on paper what is happening here, without the exit for the child, the loop run again, and fork is executed again. What you want to do is if the process is the child, you go out of the loop, else you continue looping and forking ...

comment How does `env X='() { (a)=>\' sh -c “echo date”` work?
@eyoung100 Not sure what you mean with "the nature of the way Linux was created". echo is "treated as a file"(name) only because of its position in the (bash) command. In echo date date is not treated as a command either. But in >echo date echo is the name of the file where the output of the date command is redirected.

comment Run command on startup for one user
"a shell without login" That's just the prompt, not "the shell", and you can make it look any way you want. You are logged into the shell, but that shell is sh not bash. You want to change the user 's shell‌​.

comment Unable to create gui in Qt creator
On Linux, you should usually use the package manager to install something, unless you have a good reason not to. But, it seems you are just looking at an older tutorial, perhaps made for Qt4. The one you want is a "Qt Widget Application". The widget module has been split from QtGUI in Qt5.

comment Antergos installer says I have no /boot partition
I dont know the Antergos installer but it says "EFI(/boot)" and your /boot partition is set as ext4 so it can't be used as EFI partition (must be FAT32). It is also more common to mount the EFI partition at /boot/efi than directly at /boot.
