[SOLVED] Gooseberry Pi (Raspberry Pi alternative) Arch OS

Hi,

I've been getting into the Gooseberry (Pi) the 2x more powerful than the Raspberry Pi, integrated WiFi etc. http://gooseberry.atspace.co.uk/

And there was some talk about having Arch Linux running on it (as it can support Ubuntu), but the Gooseberry Forum, and specifically the Arch Linux OS Thread got heavily spammed and progress seem to be vague.

gooseberryboard.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=5 … 7&start=20

Can anyone help with this effort and/or shed some light on the project? Would love to get this going!

This would  fall under Arch ARM's domain; Arch doesn't officially support ARM.

Aww damn. Is there any reason why they don't?

Arch devs don't have time to maintain ports for every architecture Linux supports.

But there are other people working on this here. I don't have any devices to use it on right now, but I've heard good things.

All depends on the traction it gets, it might be one day. Guys seem to be going strong on their own already though smile.
