Puppification of Arch Linux for Raspberry Pi

Raw JWM for Puppi Arch

What is this?
This is Arch Linux with Puppy programs added

How do I get Puppi?
You don't. Not yet. You make it! You customise it!
Your Puppy, your choices! It is the Arch way. Puppy Way too
Later we will have a ready made real Puppi

Get me started!

Step 1 download and install the Arch image file for Raspberry Pi on a SD card

Download the Arch image

With Puppy
In Puppy Slacko and most modern Puppys click on the downloaded Arch zip
It will expand
Move to the directory where the unzipped image is, open a console by
right clicking and select new terminal. Type
	# dd bs=1M if=archlinuxarm-27-03-2012.img of=/dev/sdc

The part archlinuxarm-27-03-2012.img is the image and if you have a later image
replace with the updated image name
more info
Other methods Other distros and Windows

Step 2 run 'Arch'
boot up
login root
password root

You are now at the Arch command line

Step 3 Update 'Arch'
Arch is a rolling release - constantly update
This is the update command which can take a while - took about 40 minutes on broadband
Once installed, you can update with
pacman -Syu

Step 4 install JWM Window Manager
To install say lxde
pacman -S xf86-video-fbdev jwm

Step 5 start JWM Window Manager
xinit /usr/bin/jwm

Step 6 add Puppy programs
Open the terminal
pacman -S rox geany mtpaint netsurf
