Installing ArchLinux on your Pi is the first step in establishing a SeedBox or any other embedded system. I choose ArchLinux because it's about as barebones as you can get. There's no extra software past what you install, so it's more prone to run nice and snappy. The downside is that you HAVE to install everything you need. This makes setup more complicated.
Recently, after some sort of dick-wagging nerd out between ArchLinux and the Pi Foundation, ArchLinux stopped posting images of the latest distro, so you have to image the SD Card yourself. No worries, this guide will help you through all of that.
