Puppification of Arch Linux for Raspberry Pi - JWM, Rox, Geany and mtpaint for Puppi using Arch binaries

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

So what is this exactly?
This is Arch Linux with Puppy small efficient programs added . . .

Get me started!
OK - you got it!

Step 1 download and install the Arch image file for Raspberry Pi on a SD card
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 updated.
This is the update command which can take a while - took about 40 minutes on broadband
Once installed you are in Arch command line, you can update with
pacman -Syu

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

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