With only a handful of these out in the wild I was surprised one wound up in the hands of Arch as it is. Either way, once I get my hands on some I'd be happy to lend cycles to the cause if needed (CPU or brain, either or).

I'm sory, but what exactly is the state of Arch Linux ARM for the R-PI?

What is working and what is not?

Yes.
Remember, Arch Linux ARM is completely donation-supported, and is totally awesome.

Works great, fbdev fine, no acceleration yet, no sound via alsa as no driver, openmax has to be used.
Arch rootfs made and will be available soon.

Great! Pardon my ignorance, but why can't the sound (and video) driver be taken from another distro like Fedora?

We have (probably, as no sound driver exists) the same one as fedora and Debian, sound via openmax. Either a driver needs creating or an alsa version of openmax.
We have the same video as both

I saw this post over at the raspberrypi.org site:

Nice work, I can't wait until the Raspberry Pi becomes more widely available and I can get one to install Arch Linux ARM on it.

Let us know when the RootFS is available, fancy getting this all running in QEMU.

Cheers

That is slightly older rootfs, I asked if they would seed newer, but they just did sd img

You know, we do have it in our budget to host a 160MB file pepedog. :lol:
