about six months ago I installed Arch on my laptop, and after not being able to use the laptop for a while, I have forgotten my passwords.  Does anyone have an idea how to get into it with something like single user mode so that I can bypass the login, password and once in edit the administrator password?  I can be reached at vincent_dorio@yahoo.com.  Thanks

Since the Arch ARM website links back to this wiki, I figured it would make sense to include support for ARM in the FAQ, do you agree?

Arch on ARM

Since the Arch ARM website links back to this wiki, I figured it would make sense to include support for ARM in the FAQ, do you agree? More specifically, I am referring to the section titled: Q) Why would I not want to use Arch? under the point: you require support for an architecture other than x86_64, i686 or ARM."

I saw your edit and it reminded me of a discussion we had some time ago. We have Samsung_Chromebook_(ARM) and Raspberry_Pi in our wiki, but both articles have a disclaimer, that ARM support is provided by Arch Linux ARM, not the original Arch Linux. There are other Arch-based distros that provide e.g. i586 support, but Arch Linux does not. -- Karol (talk) 04:54, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
