Raspberry Pi: Hands On with Arch Linux and Pidora


Hi,

Raspberry Pi: Hands On with Arch Linux and Pidora;
Quote:
Summary: Exploring two more general-purpose Linux versions on the Raspberry Pi.

In the first post about my new Raspberry Pi, I explored about NOOBS (the New Out Of Box Software package) and Raspbian, the Debian GNU/Linux spin customised for the Pi.
This time I want to take a look at the other two general-purpose Linux distributions which have been customised and packaged for the Pi, Arch Linux ARM and Pidora.

First I will start by reviewing the NOOBS boot/installation process. After downloading the NOOBS package, which is a ZIP file, you simply have to extract the contents to a blank SD card of at least 4GB in size.
Nothing special is required for this, either in terms of knowledge or equipment; you can do it on pretty much any Linux or Windows system.
Good article & be sure to read the comments section.
