I just don't feel like studying for a thermal physics final. I'm a CS student, damn it.
Remember, Arch Linux ARM is completely donation-supported, and is totally awesome.

Ahah if it speeds up the development of ALARM on the chromebook, as a Mechanical Engineer student, I can help you out with some thermal :P

Building a custom kernel.
As the default (Chromos) kernel was missing a few things I needs (mainly some file systems for external disks), as well as a BT GPS and USB GSM Modem not appearing to work (actually, no having the latter two may have been user error), I decided to follow the instructions from Olof Johansson https://plus.google.com/109993695638569781190/posts/34PYU79eUqP and build a custom kernel. The only Arch specific items of note are to use the uboot-mkimage and dtc packages from the AUR, which need makepkg -Ai, as they're not currently setup for arm7h. Other than that, it's pretty simple, just follow the instructions. Now my toys work with the chromebook in Arch.

Why don't you fork our github, add in a pkgbuild in core/linux-chromebook, and then issue a pull and we'll build it up.

Has anyone tried this? https://github.com/guillaumebrunerie/Chromiarch-OS

Should be getting my Chromebook today, looking forward to messing around with ALARM on it :)

If you read that carefully, that is for x86 chromebooks.

Of course.... but what part of it couldn't apply to ALARM?

besides all the drivers? And possible x86 only bits?

What part of this couldn't possibly work on ALARM? Obviously, you cannot just follow that guide 100% exactly and get the desired result, I'm not that stupid, but is there anything there that cannot work on ARM with proper tweaking?

I feel like you're being excessively pedantic :p. The overall idea and instructions should be similar regardless of the architecture.

I think it's a pretty great idea, even if not entirely practical. Running entirely different userlands (complete with X) in two hard ttys.

That looks pretty interesting.. What exactly is x86 specific about the concept? (And not just the arch build...which we obviously already have..)
