Arch Linux Downloads

Release Info

The image can be burned to a CD, mounted as an ISO file, or be directly written to a USB stick using a utility like dd. It is intended for new installations only; an existing Arch Linux system can always be updated with pacman -Syu.

Existing Arch32 Users

If you are an existing Arch32 user, there is no need to download a new ISO to update your existing system. You may be looking for an updated mirrorlist instead.

Package Archive

Older versions of packages can be found in the Package Archive. It works similar to the Arch Linux Archive which is documented in the ArchWiki.

Fixing Broken Pacman

If pacman is unable to work properly (due to partial upgrade, broken libraries, missing compression support, etc.), there are two possibilities to fix it:

Fixing Broken Keyring(s)

Sometimes an ISO contains broken keys. This can easily be fixed by updating your keyring with pacman -S archlinux-keyring archlinux32-keyring and then pacman-key --init, pacman-key --populate archlinux32 and pacman-key --refresh. Eventually this is something you want to do in the chroot of your installation (arch-chroot /mnt).

BitTorrent Download (recommended)

If you can spare the bytes, please leave the client open after your download is finished, so you can seed it back to others. A web-seed capable client is recommended for fastest download speeds.

HTTP Direct Downloads

Install images can be downloaded via HTTP from the mirror sites. Please ensure the download image matches the checksum from the md5sums or sha512sums file in the same directory as the image.
