The Arch Hurd Project is, unsurprisingly, a project to get a working Arch system running on GNU/Hurd. This page will, at some point, tell you how you too, can get an Arch Hurd system. Maybe we'll even set up repositories and suchlike, even a website if this thing takes off.

Currently we don't have anything but an idea, some people crazy enough to like the idea, and the promise of some PKGBUILDs. Sorry.


Just what makes something Arch-like? Add ideas to this list.

  • pacman/makepkg for package management
  • Some form of ABS tree (in git/svn/cvs/whatever to allow easy package rollbacks, perhaps?)
  • Something like the /etc/rc.conf file (anybody know anything about the Hurd boot process?)


I (Barrucadu) have a tonne of spare space/bandwidth on my Dreamhost account, so when this gets rolling if people want to volunteer to port/maintain packages they use, the repositories can live on there.

If I set up a git repo for the ABS tree, a packaging mailing list, and repositories (core/extra should do in the beginning, I imagine), I could give volunteers access to those so we could make progress.
