There are rumors, that we are splitting from ArchLinux.
Yep - We do.
Our new core is based on stable Debian-PKGs.
Jan Mette and Dario Freddi are hacking a new package-management system to get all what we need out of Debian-PKGs.
Our build-system supports Debian since a while, as you can read in our source-code:
# detect host
if [ -e "/etc/arch-release" ] ; then
echo ":: running on arch linux"
elif [ -e "/etc/debian_version" ] ; then
echo ":: running on debian $DEB_VER"
echo ":: running on a unsupported linux distro"
# setup & check pacman
if [ -e "/usr/bin/pacman.static" ] ; then
echo ":: using pacman.static"
elif [ -e "/usr/bin/pacman" ] ; then
echo ":: using pacman"
echo ":: you need pacman on your host system."
A testbuild of our Chakra-LiveCDs you can expect by the end of April.
The Switch will be done with KDEmod 4.5 release. From there on we won't support ArchLInux anymore. So farwell Archers ...
