Hi everyone! I am writing this post in order to present you a project I have been working on the last months: Archphile: Archphile - Yet Another Archlinux Based Distribution for Raspberry Pi Archphile, is a customized ArchlinuxARM distribution in order for the Raspberry Pi to be used as an audiophile mysic player along with the use of USB Dacs. The whole spirit of the project is to keep it simple. The main ingredients of Archphile are: - ArchlinuxARM - MPD - Ympd (a nice web interface for MPD) There are no automations and there will never be. Usb disks/sticks work out of the box and in order for the system to see your network shares you will have to edit /etc/fstab (you will find some examples there in order to customize and use). Some special notes: - Archphile since the beginning contains the latest FIQ FSM USB driver which solves the majority of problems with raspberry pi and USB Dacs. For more details please see: Troubleshooting pops and clicks with usb DACS - How to - Archphile However from next version step 1 will no longer be needed. - Archphile repository contains customized packages which are updated frequently. The major packages there are mpd-archphile (two packages - one with ffmpeg support) and ympd. - Some instructional articles in order to help beginners configure their system - You can download and see initial instructions here Screenshot: Conclusion: I am not a developer and Archphile is just a configuration I created for my needs and I just thought that uploading and sharing my image would also help users with the same needs that do not have the knowledge to configure a linux system. My intention is not to support many devices as I just want to support the devices I like and use in my everyday life. Udoo Quad is the next possible device to be supported by archphile. I really hope that you like and enjoy Archphile. Cheers, Michael
