That should be an interesting challenge.

Let us know if you get stuck along the way, there have been other attempts by various people with various degrees of success.

We may be able to help when you hit a tough spot.

The Kindle already runs linux, so the challenge would be compiling a server for the Kindle.

You may also want to look into "installing" a chroot, using ArchLinuxArm (more up-to-date than Raspbian).

Installing a **proxy** server perhaps?
It may be required, depending on the exact network layout the O.P. intends.

I can't recall if we built a proxy server for the K4.
I am pretty sure we built squid for newer devices.

And squid is widely used, it is probably available within the ArchLinuxArm distribution.

When using a Kindle for a 'headless' configuration, the usual thing to do is shut down a large portion of the Kindle System.

Details somewhere on this site, but they may be for newer devices than the K4.

I've suggested ArchLinuxArm to a couple people wanting to run calibre on a Raspberry Pi, also.

Because the magic of ArchLinuxArm is that all ArchLinux packages are available, and if necessary, a custom PKGBUILD is used to override the ARM builds. (In case you need to do something different for ARM building.)

So you automatically get all Arch Linux packages. Plus Arch makes it easy to compile a package from source.

Yup, FWIW, Arch also gets my (very biased) vote for 'least dumb' binary distro .

Tell us more.

Does it have the full wealth of all Puppy packages on ARM? Is Puppy a bleeding-edge distro?

I think its purpose is primarily for beginners, because Real Men Use Arch Linux (or slackware or gentoo or crux...)

Quiche-eater...
