After seeing Liam's video on the Arch release, I thought I'd install NetSurf.
Worked fine (after I'd also installed lcms).
I'm using JWM and ROX as window- file-managers.
If anyone has any tips or things to try in the Arch release, please share!

I'm having fun with the Arch release. Here's where I am up to with the task if making it into Puppy Linux.

Oops, the picture didn't work before. To see how Lobster is progressing with his Puppy based on Debian, go here.

Python 3 on Arch Linux
As the comments from "Commander Coder" make it clear that Python 3 will be the default language in the educational release (woop!), I have installed Python 3 and pygame into my Arch-Arm system. I decided against the version of Python 3 in the Arch repo. There is a way to get Pygame working with it, but without sound.
I tend to use Python 3.1.4 which works very well with the official Pygame release.
Anyway, I have set that up. At some point I will make my arch image available to download, just in case anyone wants to have a play with it.
Anyone else using the Arch release - please share any tips. I am an Arch newbie!

I have been playing around with the Arch release and making it a bit more like Puppy.
If anyone wants to try running my image on qemu, it's here. It has Python and pygame, and some other programming goodies.
I don't know what would happen if you DD'd this into an Arch SD card in replacement of the 2nd partition, but that's what I am hoping to do when my Pi arrives.
The md5sum of the extracted puppi.img is:
I love Arch – so much so I have installed it on my PC and laptop alongside Puppy Linux!

I ran pacman -Syyu yesterday and got a lot of new things downloaded from the repos. Did I
mention how much faster arch is than Debian? At the moment I am using xorg-twm to handle the desktop. It"s basic, but perfectly usable. And with rox providing a pinboard, I am wondering why I would need anything else. Currently I have been compiling some packages that will hopefully form part of the Puppy on Arm release. It just wouldn"t be Puppy without "rubix" ( a neat 3-d rubick's cube simulation)!
