So here's the scenario. I have been using Raspbian as my main distribution and have been tweaking it by stripping it down to a minimum - remove packages etc. And now considering switching to ArchLinuxARM version of Pi as it seems to be a leaner OS.
The idea is to use the leanest OS whilst using software like:
My concern is, that I am looking forward to switch and therefore would need to recompile the first two in particular. Hence my question:
If source is available for projects like the ones above, can they be compiled easily as can be compiled on Raspbian?
Any tips you would recommend? (As in gcc / g++ compilation checks or in the build process in general?)
Any dependencies to avoid?
