We are a port of Arch Linux, which aims for simplicity and full control to the end user. We provide a light-weight base structure that allows you to shape the system to your needs.


We build optimized packages for hard-float ARMv7 with NEON and ARMv8 AArch64 instruction sets to use each platform to its full potential.

Up to Date

New software versions are packaged as they are released, ensuring you are always on the leading edge of stable software releases.

Arch Linux ARM is a distribution of Linux for ARM computers. We provide targeted kernel and software support for hard-float ARMv7 with NEON and ARMv8 AArch64 instruction sets on a variety of consumer devices and development platforms. Our collaboration with Arch Linux brings users the best platform, newest packages, and installation support.

Arch Linux ARM carries forward the Arch Linux philosophy of simplicity and user-centrism, targeting and accommodating competent Linux users by giving them complete control and responsibility over the system. Instructions are provided to assist in navigating the nuances of installation on the various ARM platforms; however, the system itself will offer little assistance to the user.

The entire distribution is on a rolling-release cycle that can be updated daily through small packages instead of huge updates on a defined release schedule. Most packages are unmodified from what the upstream developer originally released.
