CachyOS is an x86_64-v3 optimized distro. Rebuilds all the Arch packages against the x86_64_v3 (-O3) architecture. Started in 2021. Inspired by the ALHP project.

Are you sure the packages are compiled with the -O3 GCC option? That is an aggressive compiler flag which should not be applied broadly across programs, since it needs to be benchmarked first. It is compiled for the x86_64_v3 platform;[1] I think you may have just made an incorrect assumption beyond that. Thanks, CodingKoopa (talk) 04:02, 15 November 2022 (UTC)Reply

I've had a look and the homepage does not resolve for me. The ISOs on SF date a few days before above comment. Based on that I would not consider the distro active as of today. --Indigo (talk) 20:30, 18 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

It's actually UBOS Linux, not just UBOS because there are other components in the overall UBOS project as well. Jernst (talk) 02:26, 21 April 2024 (UTC)Reply


The last published ISO was in 2022, but their pacman repository still has updates (from a few months ago.) Latter was removed from Unofficial user repositories, as aimed at a different distribution. The ArchStrike community channels (reddit) also seems abandoned. Thoughts on moving it to inactive? Alad (talk) 12:20, 27 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
