Manjaro ARM launched
« on: 06. February 2016, 18:52:51 »
While I don't have anything to do with the project, I would like to inform and give the opportunity to talk about the new Manjaro ARM project:

Hi community,

wonderful news in regard of architecture expanding within Manjaro Linux. It all started with a simple post on our developers mailing list.
Somebody wants to do Manjaro for ARM …

Just after one month of development our first alpha release is now ready. So what is this all about?

Manjaro Arm is a project aimed to bring you the simplicity and customability that is Manjaro to ARM devices.
These devices are growing in numbers and can be used for any number of applications.
Most famous is the Raspberry Pi series and BeagleBoard series.

There are hundreds of these devices, sometimes called SBC (single board computers) or embedded devices,
floating around and while we dont support all of them, we try our best to build and maintain as many as we can.

If you would like to have your device(s) supported and would like to help out, let us know.
We would love to be able to grow to as many devices as we possibly can. Also we are still searching for some contributors.

kind regards, Dodge JCR and the Manjaro-ARM development team

This thread is not intended for support questions. The project has its own forum.

Project is still in early/pre-alpha phase, so nothing is "done" yet. We are still in the process of building packages, using a small custom repo and seeing what packages works and what doesn't.
Desktop PC: Manjaro XFCE 15.12 (stable, kernel 4.4)
Private Laptop: Manjaro Strit 16.03 (unstable, kernel 4.6)
Work Laptop: Manjaro Strit 16.03 (stable, kernel 4.4)

This is great! I'm especially interested in that server edition.
