Meet the Arch Hurd
Arch Linux with the GNU/Hurd Kernel.
The Arch Hurd project was founded on an Arch Linux forum thread in January 2010, and after a few weeks of much input, it has progressed to the point where it can boot into a virtual machine.
It aims to provide an Arch-like user environment (BSD style init scripts , packages optimized for i686, use of the pacman packages, rolling-release and a KISS ) configuration on the Hurd that is stable enough to use.
Despite having a small development team, a lot of progress has been made since its founding, such as booting on real hardware, packaging everything for a basic web server, and producing an unofficial graphical LiveCD.
In June 2011, Arch Hurd announced the successful integration of the Device Driver Environment ( DDE ) — the framework for Linux drivers into the Hurd, which improves the distribution’s network hardware support and makes it usable.
Let’s get to know this operating system proposal that is still under development, but already deserves our attention.
Testing the LiveCD on a virtual or physical machine
Uncompress the file:
xd -d archhurd-2018.09.28.img.xz
Once installed, convert it to
If you want to test on VirtualBox.
This process may take a while.
If you want to try on QEMU, run :
Tip: Try the method with VirtualBox.
The installation process is similar to Arch Linux and you can see the whole process on the page that has the Guide installation at: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Installation_guide .
