Sub_title: what would be the minimal needed?

Underdog linux is a feature barry has re-included in puppy fairly recently and it allows you to run another distro 'under' puppy, and puppy on top, so that while you are essentially running puppy as normal, you get all the apps and libs etc from another distro as well...


Back in Puppy 2:

I've just done something very interesting, astounding even. I've dreamed about doing this for a long time, and it is finally a reality. In a nutshell, puppy2 can "piggy back" on another distro and use all of it's applications.

Here's the point...

Now that Puppy can use an 'underdog' distro, I think is a good idea for users of older pups to have a bleeding-edge underdog distro (based on puppy) that allows users of old pups to run the very latest apps by getting them through a the pkg manager of the underdog puplet...

Essentially this underdog puplet would consist of a working package manager and all the bins/libs needed to get downloading the repo packages successfully... And nothing more...?

So this idea raises a few questions..

1. Is a bleeding-edge, ultra lightweight underdog puplet a good idea?

2. What exactly should be included in it? How much? How little?

3. Based on precise? Or Arch? Which is lightest? Which has the most, latest programs in the repo?

4. Would it need X? or other stuff?

5. Are there any other reasons this might be nice? Or is this a dumb idea?

6. Could it be remastered from an existing pup? Or would it need 'woofing' from scratch?

7. Are these even the right questions?

What does everyone think..?

With static compiles and a clean mini-pup version I would hope to exploit this idea more. Started a project thread that addressed this. Some feedback was provided by others.

If you search here for underdog many more people like this idea, and which it was used more.
