https://sourceforge.net/projects/archop ... ch-openrc/

A custom arch ISO that lets the user install a fresh Arch linux starting with openrc instead of systemd.

To do this during the installation the user runs:

pacstrap -i /mnt base-openrc base base-devel

This will install the minimum things necessary to start openrc when the system boots as well as the base arch linux system while avoiding systemd.
All of the packages for OpenRC are signed with the key 97BEEEC2. This key must be added to your keyring for proper functionality and to make sure all packages are not corrupt/altered.

To add the key to your keyring use these commands as root:
pacman-key -r 97BEEEC2
pacman-key --lsign-key 97BEEEC2

Last step of the installation is to append the following repository to /etc/pacman.conf:

[arch-openrc] Server = http://downloads.sourceforge.net/projec ... repo/$arch

Well, I did point out that Arch could be configured to use OpenRC [1] and this is just a n00b version of that...

I have just discovered Devuan's website neatly presents a list of OSs without systemd. Click here to view and scroll down to view the heading GNU/Linux Distributions without systemd.
