Note: Archie is still under heavy development and thus can only be considered as beta. Please submit bug reports in the forums here. Thank you.
Archie is a complete live Arch linux system (v0.7) to be run from a cd/usb, built with the KISS philosophy in mind. No packages have been stripped to provide a full Arch linux system, yet deliver fastest performance with no extensive bloating. Archie uses its own hw-detection tool (lshwd) ideally to support a wide range of hardware with low detection time. Archie also provides extended features like multi-lingual, nesting capabilities and hd-install.Archie iso's consists of several different isos, each directed to a different task :
|Archie XFCE||Archie with XFCE desktop||~300mb||usb/cd||Ready|
|Archie KDE||Archie with KDE desktop||~650mb||cd only||N/A yet|
|Skinny Archie XFCE||Stripped down (uclibc) Archie with XFCE desktop||~100mb||usb/cd||N/A yet|
|Skinny Archie KDE||Stripped down (uclibc) Archie with KDE desktop||~250mb||usb/cd||N/A yet|
The Archie project also offers the scripts (named archie-scripts) used to create the Archie iso's so other Archers may create their own Arch-based live system, very similar (in principle) to the linux-live.org project.
I want more!
