Archlinux image with GUI makes no sense to me.
Archlinux is highly customizable, you can install whatever GUI you want.
Download rootfs ArchLinuxARM-armv7-latest.tar.gz and build your kernel, that's it.

Ok, but you have said for nowThis has made me think that you were going to also publish Archlinux images with GUI.

Forgot to mention:
systemd > 216-3 does not support 3.4 kernel it's too oooooold!
archlinuxarmguys have dropped the support since long time ago for sunxi 3.4 kernel.

I have tried the Arch linux image with the latest kernel (17/October/2015)  , running headless and idle and it crashes every 2 or 3 hours
Is this the expected behaviour?
Are the debian ubuntu images any more stable?
Basically I am looking for a linux image (don´t care much which one) that will run headless (don´t care about graphics) for weeks to eventually replace a couple of headless raspberry pies I have

How exactly it crashes ?
Any kind of crash is certainly not the expected behavior.
I have headless Debian on OPI running for more than a month, without any problem.
The most probable cause for a crash is bad sd card or bad power supply.

I connect via ssh
All of sudden the terminal is not responding anymore to the keyboard and pinging the opi fails.
It happens with 2 different sdcards, different brands and brand new.
Could you share the kernel you are using with your headless Debian?
Is it the 17/10/2015 ?

As for the power supply, I ordered them separately and they have not arrived yet ...
