Arch image should contain more packages

Postby [unrob] » Sat Jul 04, 2015 3:04 am

The Arch image is missing some packages:

  • dialog: a dependency of `wifi-menu`, a tool for setting up wifi profiles
  • wpa_actiond: enables automatic wifi connections when in range
  • syslog-ng: for when netctl, ip, wpa_actiond and wpa_supplicant crap themselves at boot
  • avahi: nice to have, should also include the correct configuration

Also, a kernel with iptables module enable would be great.

Hi unrob, thank you for feedback. Providing built-in utilities and packages for the user is important to us. Currently, our Archlinux image is based on the Archlinux distribution guidelines, providing a lightweight and minimal base structure that allows you to shape the system to your needs. For this reason, the Archlinux ARM image for the PixieBoard only includes packages from the base and base-devel groups, though you can easily install packages from other repos using pacman package manager.
