This is brilliant - I wish we'd had some more alpha boards to send out to Puppy and some of the other distros we've not been able to help yet. We're really looking forward to what you guys come up with.

Hi Lobster, nice to see you over here. Puppy will be my choice of distro for Rasp. It's the best Mini distro out there and Barry and others like yourself are so helpful. Thanks for posting. Tony

Thanks guys

We are the only Linux named after a real chihuahua (see above)
A Puppy port will be ready and shipped out to our eager kennel
within weeks if not days of developers getting hold of their ration of Pi.
Puppy is designed for the yuts [sic] and adults who like getting their paws dirty.
Pack leader Barry Kauler is in Oz outback coding and contacting via his developer blog. Woof2 our development system is being made ARM compatible as we bark.
I have just done a pawedcast on security despite learning all I know from the label of a tin of dog food . . .
Puppy + Raspberry = gorgeous++


We are the Dorg. Resistance is futile.

Hi Lobster, nice to see you over here promoting Puppy. It's definitely the distro I will be using when I get my Pi. I'm thinking a tiny mouse, roll up keyboard and a VGA/HDMI lead, small PSU and away we go.

Now you have my attention!

I had my first play with Puppy on an x86 laptop a few days ago - an old one with only 128 Megs of memory, and the performance was remarkably good, it was suddenly a useful system again after being a doorstop for years.

Puppy and Raspberrypi have the potential to become a winning combination

- good to see fellow Puppys here

Puppy is the Linux (in the form of the derivative Linux Tmxxine)
used by the paradox agency
The Chronology Protection Agency

We can also transform doorstops into computers
kids into geeks
and Strawberry Fields into Pi's of Raspberry . . .

Puppy is great on your pendrive but for this baby I rather stick to a full blown os slackware or debian will do just fine thank you. BTW I am a happy puppy with Puppy on a Pen on my keychain

I have been feeding my favourite Dog Bacon


A BASIC to C converter written in Bash Script

He seems to have perked up . . .

Debian + Puppy + Pi = Puppi

Take Debian and add faster and more efficient programs

Puppification now available



Then there is Arch Puppi being developed

Dog Powered Pi Owning Compilers needed

Yes. We all know that computers and their Operating Systems should be fruit based!

This is cool

In a similar vein (though far less useful) I have a CESIL execution engine written in awk script

Hi – I want to build a balancing robot with the Pi but have been told that I need something simpler and quicker based around an 8 bit micro controller.

I refuse to believe those people and think there is a niche for something akin to an RTOS in the Pi community.

Many hobbyists may just want access to the GPIO pins via a self-loading binary compiled on a PC which is transferred to the Pi physically via the SD card – and nothing else.

How easy would it be to take a hatchet to your Puppi in order to incorporate just its vital organs into machinery? -  a sort of ''Cydawg''.

Guys, Fellow Puppys,

I am pleased to report that progress is happening on Puppi (Puppy on the Rpi).
Our least skillful developer (I use the word developer in the loosest sense of the word) continues to promote those with real skills.
Puppy users, Mark and now Tman are both using and suggesting Arch as a development point and are using Qemu as they are yet to obtain real hardware.
I have been able to use the woof2 system that can build Puppy from its internal scripts and binaries from Arch or Debian or Fedora. However support for Raspberry Pi will come later and only the Mele ARM device is currently supported.
Mark (antiloquax) is learning everything, including 'Linux' - assuming you can learn Linux . . .
Tman was the instigator behind the revival of Saluki, which may have an influence on Puppi but because it uses XFCE will be considered too slow for Raspberry Pi with its current CPU.

Because Puppy is created and developed according to the skill-set and interests available, something surprising is always arising.
So for example we may source some of our programs from the cloud

I managed to get a picture of a Puppy + Pi powered HUD prototype from a parallel dimension . . .

. . . well that is my story until the medication wears off ;)

Keep up the good work, Lobster. :)

Does that all mean that we will be seeing Puppy available on the 'Download' page here before too long then? ;)
