Fetch the Arch Linux download from RaspberryPi Downloads

If using win32 disk imager then please be aware that the image file needs to be extracted onto a local physical drive (e.g. C: ) rather than a network/remote drive.

Please spend time browsing the Arch Linux Beginners Guide.

Having logged in as root, then make sure you change the default password:

 # passwd

Then add a user: (follow the prompts)

 # adduser

Then update your system:

 # pacman -Syu

Which is likely to update pacman itself – just follow the prompts and once this is complete then re-attempt the complete upgrade:

 # pacman -Syu
 :: Synchronizing package databases...
  core is up to date
  extra is up to date
  community is up to date
  alarm is up to date
  aur is up to date
 :: Starting full system upgrade...
 resolving dependencies...
 looking for inter-conflicts...
 Proceed with installation? [Y/n]
 :: Retrieving packages from core...

Then install LAMP by following the excellent Arch Linux LAMP guide.

 # pacman -S apache php php-apache mysql
 # rc.d start mysqld 

Then add a MySQL password:

 # mysqladmin -u root password ‘password’
 # mysql -u root -p

Type exit to exit from the CLI MySQL client

Then Edit /etc/rc.conf (to start MySQL at boot):

  DAEMONS=(... mysqld ...)

Read and follow the Apache section - one word of warning - I suggest you adjust the default DocumentRoot directory by inserting an additional directory (e.g. htdocs) under /srv/http

Customize your config. At least change httpd.conf and extra/httpd-default.conf to your liking. For security reasons, you might want to change ServerTokens Full to ServerTokens Prod and ServerSignature On to ServerSignature Off in extra/httpd-default.conf.

  1. rc.d start httpd

Having followed the php installation guide then you'll also need to update php's basedir to match Apache:

 open_basedir = /srv/http/htdocs:/home/:/tmp/:/usr/share/pear/

And also define the timezone:

 ; Defines the default timezone used by the date functions
 ; http://php.net/date.timezone
 date.timezone = "Europe/London"

Then install the basic development tools (provides gcc, etc.)

 # pacman -S base-devel

And perl and the associated MySQL interface modules:

 # pacman -S perl-dbi perl-dbd-mysql

You may also wish to include spoken sound support:

 # pacman -S festival festival-english alsa-utils

And update your festivalrc file:

 # cat /root/.festivalrc
   (Parameter.set 'Audio_Command "/usr/bin/aplay -R1000 -q -c 1 -t raw -f s16 -r $SR $FILE")
   (Parameter.set 'Audio_Method 'Audio_Command)

And add a sound.conf file under /etc/modules-load.d to ensure the Broadcom sound module is loaded at boot. The file needs to contain a single statement shown below:

 # cat /etc/modules-load.d/sound.conf
