What is this?

An attempt at making Manjaro packages available for i686 systems after official support was removed.

How can I use it?

Common: Add the "overlay" repo

Currently, all i686 packages are in a single repo. This will change shortly, but until then, edit /etc/pacman.conf:

[manjaro32]
Server = https://repo.manjaro32.org/

[core]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[extra]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

[community]
Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

You will need to sudo pacman -S archlinux32-keyring for the base migration but all manjaro32 packages are signed and will be trusted by a 32-bit Manjaro installation. Packages may be missing or out-of-date; please report on the forum.

Now pick one of the two following options:

Option 1: Use Manjaro-hosted mirrors of archlinux32 packages

Edit /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf, manually set Branch = x32-unstable, then pacman-mirrors -f0.

Option 2: Use archlinux32's packages

Edit /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist and switch the entries to one (or more) of the archlinux32.org mirrors.

Is this project/initiative going to work?

Who knows. :)

Hey, this doesn't look like plain text any more...

I like it!

Good; thank Tufte CSS.

I don't like it. :(

Have some shiny.
