What is this?

The early stages of making Manjaro available for i686 systems after support was dropped from the main project.

How do I use it?

Edit /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf, manually set Branch = x32-testing (ensuring there is no comment marker, #, at the start of the line), then:

pacman-mirrors -c all
pacman -Sy archlinux32-keyring-transition
pacman -S archlinux32-keyring # accept removal of archlinux32-transition-keyring
pacman -Syu

You need archlinux32-keyring for the new signing keys for the packages sourced from archlinux32; all Manjaro packages are signed by Manjaro packagers and will be trusted by a 32-bit Manjaro installation. You may also need to clear your package cache to remove packages signed by the Arch Linux devs, e.g. pacman -Scc.

Packages may be missing or out-of-date; please report on the forum.

What if I want bleeding edge?

Switch to the x32-unstable branch instead. Be warned; here be Dragon 32s. However, you'll also get the latest software first and be able to help with testing.

What about installer images?

There are no current plans to offer installer isos.

Once manjaro32 is completely off-the-ground and proven the current maintainers might spin a 32-bit iso. However, this depends entirely on demand.

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.

Why aren't you using manjaro32.github.io yet?

Time.
