    Hallo! I tried the above for the 2013-06-06 version of ArchLinux downloaded from a mirror on the raspberry pi official website, but I got a symlink error upon trying to boot into ArchLinux. No command prompt!

    It appears that the 2013-06-06 version already has usr/lib symlinked to lib. I tried also cp’ing (-pr) the lib to usr/lib and the usr/bin to usr/sbin, trying to avoid the symlink errors like this guy. Not sure if this will solve the problem, and even if so, it may introduce other problems…

    Best-

    seems like it is working with raspbian images only … other cause problems / deletes SDcard …
