This repo contains PKGBUILDS and other needed files for Odroid U3 Arch Linux related packages that i use for my new ALARM U3 image.

To install simply build the package with the PKGBUILD and makepkg -s and then install the resulting pkg.tar.xz file with pacman.

How To Manually Build/Install

Change directory to where you want to clone the repo :

$ cd git

Then clone the repo :

$ git clone

Then change directory into the file you wish to install, for example xbmc-odroid :

$ cd xbmc-odroid

Then take a look at the PKGBUILD to check everything is ok with nano before running makepkg -s :

$ makepkg -s

Once makepkg finishes it will create a pkg.tar.xz file which can be installed with pacman like so :

$ sudo pacman -U xbmc-odroid-20140901.867305b-1-armv7h.pkg.tar.xz

Once you have all the files installed you need to edit your /etc/xorg.conf mine has :

# X.Org X server configuration file for xfree86-video-mali

Section "Device"
	Identifier 	"Mali-Fbdev"
	Driver		"armsoc"

Install From My Repo

Alternatively you can install my successful builds which are hosted in a repo for quick installation. Simply edit your /etc/pacman.conf and add these few lines to the bottom of the file :

SigLevel = Never
Server =

Then update pacman and install the desired packages in the usual manner, like so :

sudo pacman -Syu
sudo pacman -S xbmc-odroid
