Introduction

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 and a working cross compiler. Sorry.

Ideas

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?)

Repositories

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.
