The official instructions for creating a "direct connection" on a network hopefully just work for most people, but it seems pulseaudio and I do not get along that well: it took me hours. [Besides "direct connection", you can also use a "tunnel" method described further down, but I recommend reading this first.]
I now have a (...
I just ran into this issue myself. I found two ways to create the SD card using the .tar.gz images provided by ArchLinuxARM, provided you have a USB SD card reader.
Method 1: Raspberry Pi + USB card reader + 1 additional SD card
This method requires an additional SD card and a USB card reader. It uses Linux on your Raspberry Pi to build an new SD card that ...
All of the above answers are outdated. My answer is not very good, but hopefully avoids the issue of becoming outdated.
The official wiki explains, in detail, how one goes about installing/building a package that is not part of pacman (packer and yaourt as of this date).
Both packer and yaourt are flagged as out of date in AUR. (this may change in the ...
I had the same problem. Then I found that a wpa_supplicant process was already started at boot time to connect to public WIFI. This is why there is the "resource busy" error message. I did a sudo killall wpa_supplicant and retried my wpa_supplicant command, and it worked. Hope this helps.
I use packer for this purpose which in my opinion is a faster alternative to yaourt.
Just add these two lines to your /etc/pacman.conf:
Server = http://repo.archlinux.fr/$arch
Then you can install/update packer via pacman:
# pacman -Sy packer
And use packer in pretty much the same way you use pacman:
$ packer -S some_aur_package
Also if ...
Jivings answer holds true if you happen to have an image of Arch Linux around. As of now however such images are no longer issued by Arch Linux. Instead the full file system is provided as a .tar.gz and has to be installed to the SD card from scratch.
After preparation of the partition table using fdisk and creation of the file systems mkfs the root and ...
Change directories to access the network settings:
# cd /etc/netctl
# cp examples/ethernet-static ./eth0
We need to edit the configuration file, etch0, and add in the settings we need. Before you proceed, you will need the following:
Static IP address – I’m using 192.168.1.36. The netmask I’m using
is 255.255.255.0 which is defined as "/24" or the first ...
You could find the IP address using arp-scan or nmap's ping scan), but could also use the default /etc/hostname alarmpi in place of the IP address if DNS is working in your network.
If your DNS is not working, then do
nmap -T5 -sP 192.168.0.0-255 replacing the network id part of the address accordingly.
to get a list of IP addresses ...
The preferred way to do this on Archlinux is to use systemd.
systemd is the default init framework, replacing initscripts. The
services which are started by systemd can be found in the subfolders
of /etc/systemd/system/. Services can be enabled using the systemctl
command. For more information about systemd and how to write autostart
scripts for ...
No, it is not possible to enable/disable or power down any single USB port. The hub providing the different ports is connected to one root USB port, thus it's none or all.
Ok, but is it possible to disable root USB port?
For the B-type it should be possible to disable the USB-Hub (see http://babaawesam.com/2014/01/24/power-saving-tips-for-raspberry-pi/ ) ...
No, this is not how any of this works.
(Currently) VMware only works on x86 based instruction sets, which the RPI is

If you have space for an empty partition, this is fairly simple -- but first, to clarify, run
sudo fdisk /dev/mmcblk0
Then hit p (to print the partition table). You'll get a table like this:
Disk /dev/mmcblk0: 7.4 GiB, 7892631552 bytes, 15415296 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (...
You can use your Raspberry Pi with different SD cards and thus different Operating Systems in turns. Obviously you will have to power down the Pi and physically change the SD card first but other than that there is no problem with this approach.
The only possible issue is the wear of the contacts of the SD card and the card slot on the Pi, i.e. the number ...
IMPORTANT! yaourt is insecure and deprecated according to the wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/AUR_helpers
While @Jivings answer was best back in `12, I would recommend installing one of the more secure and feature rich arch package managers (and I suggest someone update @Jivings answer as it has the most visibility).

While trying to re-distribute a customized Raspbian OS, I had the same question with respect to making the image as small as possible. To make this process easy I wrote mkimg.sh and outline what it does at: https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/a/37899/32585
Write a script
ifconfig eth0 down hw ether 00:00:00:00:00:00
ifconfig eth0 up
where "00:00:00:00:00:00" - your mac address
Let's say you called it mac.sh.
Put it in the /etc/init.d/ directory. And make this file executable using
# chmod +x mac.sh
# update-rc.d mac.sh defaults
That's make your script bootable.
After rebooting mac ...
As gurcanozturk pointed out in the comments, you're writing the SD card incorrectly.
The SD card images for Arch (as well as Raspbian etc) are a whole-disk image. This means they contain the partition table at the start of the disk, then all the partitions. The need to be written over the whole disk.
On linux, SD cards show up as /dev/mmcblk# , and the ...
I'm not sure exactly how you performed the installation process, but take a look at this tutorial (for both Raspbian and Arch Linux):
Start the graphical interface:
$ wget -c https://s3.amazonaws.com/assets.minecraft.net/pi/minecraft-pi-0.1.1.tar.gz
Extract the archive and cd into the extracted directory:
$ tar -...
To disable power saving mode, you have to add "wireless-power off" in your "interfaces" file
sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
2/ Add at the end of file
3/ Reboot by typing :
This happened to me too (albiet on Raspbian).
If you'd rather not totally disable the dhcpcd service, you can add this to /etc/dhcpcd.conf to inform it of your static interface:
static domain_name_servers=192.168.0.1 18.104.22.168
This will stop it from ...
Can you post the exact command you are trying to use? Also, I assume you know for a fact that you are using a Rev.1 board, not a Rev.2.
For reference, to be sure, here is the page that describes the pin mapping from GPIO numbers to wiringPi numbers. http://wiringpi.com/pins/
Another way to test this is to export the pin and write straight to it from the ...
Find a good overview as how to autostart scripts or services at the Archlinux Wiki. A convenient way for simple testing is the use of cron. Edit crontab by crontab -e and use the alias @reboot to schedule a task to be started after reboot. Use full paths for you executables though.
Another typical way is to utilize the systemd default init framework that ...
