A simple, lightweight distribution
You've reached the website for Arch BSD, a lightweight and flexible BSD® distribution that tries to Keep It Simple.
Currently we have official packages optimized for the i686 and x86-64 architectures. We complement our official package sets with a community-operated package repository that grows in size and quality each and every day.
Our strong community is diverse and helpful, and we pride ourselves on the range of skillsets and uses for Arch that stem from it. Please check out our forums. to get your feet wet. Also glance through our wiki if you want to learn more about Arch.
New ISO`s (still experimental ) are available on the ftp. We support i686 architecture now.Have fun and try to provide feedback.
New ISO is available for download:
The ISO can be found on our ftp servers.
Currently no installer is available. Few fixes of the iso include.
/root /mnt /boot are now read / write, which should fix zfs installation issues, and allow importing of future keyrings.
Packages have been updated to the latest version, including FreeBSD 10 for better hardware support.
A new ISO has been released with various bug fixes. Keyring should now be copied during install. Removed the hardcoded paths in grub.cfg and also updated all packages. The new keyring has been added too.
The iso can be found on our ftp servers.
Everything is still early stages, so if you do test and have any issues, please submit a bug report so it can be fixed.
There has been two new splits to FreeBSD-World package. The first is that now system configs have been moved to their own package: FreeBSD-Configs.
Make sure you install this package when upgrading. You will be prompted with a message for this by FreeBSD-world.
The second split, is libarchive is now completely split from and the new libarchive prefixed to /usr.
