Project Description

RebornOS is a distribution based on Arch Linux

It starts as an Antergos bifurcation, offering more options during its installation, based on the Antergos cnchi installer, using the latter's repository, and one of its own.

Once the development of Antergos is finished, RebornOS becomes an independent distribution, no longer depending on the Antergos repository, but on its own repository (besides, of course, the Arch Linux repositories).

It currently offers a cnchi-based installer, which works without problems, while developing its own installer: Fenix.

Release Notes

Installation Options:

1) You can attempt to use the automated script for the appropriate Raspberry Pi model (additional models will be added over time).


2) You can do the installation manually:

Please follow the instructions from the ArchLinuxARM install page:

Replace sdX in the following instructions with the device name for the SD card as it appears on your computer. Replace rpiX with the correct one (i.e. rpi4, rpi3, rpi2, rpi)

Start fdisk to partition the SD card:
fdisk /dev/sdX
At the fdisk prompt, delete old partitions and create a new one:
Type o. This will clear out any partitions on the drive. Type p to list partitions. There should be no partitions left. Type n, then p for primary, 1 for the first partition on the drive, press ENTER to accept the default first sector, then type +100M for the last sector. Type t, then c to set the first partition to type W95 FAT32 (LBA). Type n, then p for primary, 2 for the second partition on the drive, and then press ENTER twice to accept the default first and last sector. Write the partition table and exit by typing w.
Create and mount the FAT filesystem:
mkfs.vfat /dev/sdX1 mkdir boot mount /dev/sdX1 boot
Create and mount the ext4 filesystem:
mkfs.ext4 /dev/sdX2 mkdir root mount /dev/sdX2 root
Download and extract the root filesystem (as root, not via sudo):
wget bsdtar -xpf ArchLinuxARM-rpi-X-latest.tar.gz -C root sync
Move boot files to the first partition:
mv root/boot/* boot
Unmount the two partitions:
umount boot root
Insert the SD card into the Raspberry Pi, connect ethernet, and apply 5V power. Use the serial console or SSH to the IP address given to the board by your router.
Login as the default user alarm with the password alarm. The default root password is root.
Initialize the pacman keyring and populate the Arch Linux ARM and RebornOS package signing keys:
pacman-key --init pacman-key --populate archlinuxarm pacman-key --populate rebornos
