Arch Linux based system without systemd

The goal of Obarun is to provide an alternative for people looking for more simplicity and transparency in maintaining their systems. Obarun is not designed with beginners to Linux in mind.

On other note, Obarun is neither a distribution of its own, is nor is it pure Archlinux, it's a Build Concept. Obarun is based on Archlinux, but incorporates several changes.

For the moment Obarun is only available for x86-64 architectures.

Systemd replacement is made by S6 supervision suite or Runit as init and service manager.

Obarun package set resides in the streamlined [obarun] repository. Obviously, the official [extra], [community], and [testing] repositories from Arch Linux are used to fit the needs of the competent Linux user.

Somes Tools written in script language are available to simplify/help tasks like installing software from AUR, building packages on safe environment, installing a particular system, service managing and so one.

Hopefully Obarun will give people the option of choice : of a system which will not tolerate any incursion of systemd, and which stays simpler, more stable, more transparent, more open, and closer to the philosophy of Linux.

Welcome to Obarun.
