Arch Linux is my favorite Linux distribution of the half the dozen I've used. It has cutting edge packages, a rolling release (instead of fixed releases it keeps everything always up to date), the best package manager I've seen (pacman), an amazing community & wiki -- and also ARM support. This last point does matters for Springboard and is the main topic of this post.
The original Linux Development Package for the Springboard uses Debian, and after all the exploration I did recently, I wanted to figure out if I can install Arch Linux instead. This write up is a hopefully detailed, and definitely very technical guide to what I have done to get there.
