Will upload it tonight
I was tricked by the person who shot Tupac into trying It.
I was using it for Squeezelite and found it very  stable where as my Squeezelite on the csos image would randomly crash while playing music.
It's fast though
Scanned my library in no time

Tricked se moer!  :goofy: I use it because it's not bloated like pretty much all the other distro's out there. Makes it super fast.

If you're not building from source to match your hardware of choice you're doing it wrong.  :2c:

rpm is for lazy bitches who shouldn't be using Linux in the first place.  :popcorn:

if you want to install arch and do it yourself
here is a rough guide first installation of arch
instructions here
http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv7/freescale/wandboard
 
i battled to get uboot to work on some cards

next installation of squeezelite


SqueezeLite Player (SqueezeBox/Logitech Media Server Client)

pacman -Sy faad2 libmad mpg123 libao alsa-utils avahi
#if not already done
#audio fix
echo "use_mmap=no" >> /etc/libao.conf

#Configure alsa - asound.conf file
cd /etc
wget https://dl.dropbox.com/u/42238/pogoplug/v2/asound.conf


mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
cd /usr/local/bin

#v1.3
#originally from https://code.google.com/p/squeezelite/downloads/list
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/42238/pogoplug/v2/squeezelite-armv5te
mv squeezelite-armv5te squeezelite

#make executable
chmod a+x squeezelite

#download service file
cd /etc/systemd/system
wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/42238/pogoplug/v2/squeezelite.service

#edit name (optional)
#nano /etc/systemd/system/squeezelite.service

#start squeezelite and avahi-daemon
systemctl start squeezelite avahi-daemon

#autostart squeezelite and avahi-daemon on reboot
systemctl enable squeezelite avahi-daemon
