Sometime ago I also was interested that a Puppy be created symbiotically using Arch Linux primarily because that distro is a rolling release enabling upgrades to its core and the building of applications to the hardware you have. I lost that interest when Amigo's script2pkg was brought to my attention. http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=518637#518637.
Either iguleder chanced upon that thread, or Amigo's, or independently reached the conclusion that Puppy should remain Puppy, but develop an Arch-Like way of developing packages from source and maintaining a repository of scripts to do so. Better yet, he has initiated a project to do that:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=69248.
See also his work on simplifying the build of kernels.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=67706

Modest of him not to mention it.

Frankly, I think this is the way to go, as Puppy "trumps" Arch if a small, frugally installable, expandable-as-needed via SFSes, user-friendly distro is the objective.

Well I understand this is an old post topic but I'm going to add my 2 cents...

I would like to see a Puppy using Arch Linux ( I affectionately refer to the Puppy as "Archie" ). From what I've read from this forum is that it has been very difficult to develop because of the rolling release concept.

Anyways, I hope this hasn't been scrapped and hope to see a beta soon. Please don't give up on this poor pup "Archie". Woof!

Good to hear puppyluvr and hope and pray that you will have some success soon.

Stick with it and I know you will make it work. And when you do I hope that you will use the name "Archie" to name the new Pup.

I am interested in this idea. I use Arch on the Raspberry Pi and have it on my desktop (alongside Slacko).
There's a lot of things I like about Arch - these ease of updating being top of the list.
Keen to see how this project comes along.

Well, it's not Puppy, but I have made an image of my Arch set-up available if anyone wants to have a go ...

Scratch and Python3 + Pygame are ready-installed.

If you haven't tried Arch before, this may help you see what performance benefits this distribution offers.

Download the .zip of the image here:
arch.zip - google drive
or here:
arch.zip on dropbox

The sha1sum is:

There are some instructions in this file:
README.txt

I hope you find this useful!
