Puppi setup on another computer . The Puppi image is for a 4 GB SD and I'm using 8 GB. How to use the rest? On another linux PC, Ubuntu is my choice:
select the SD card, sdb in my case
Select the swap file and move it to the end of the SD
Select the 3+ GB file and resize it to the end of available space, in my case from 3+ GB to 7+ GB
Maybe that's all you need to do.
Now I selected the first partition on tthe SD card and did
my problem is the image went past the borders of the TV
Delete the # in front of the overscans
I changed left and right overscans to 20 and the top and bottom to 16. Should be a bit more the desktop still spills over the edge of the TV. It's a Coby 15" wide screen 16:9 ratio and runs at 1366x768, bought on sale from Wallmart at $80.
Now I also overclock so I added
which from the forums runs the Pi at 900 mHz seems to work for many Pi boards.
Now anther part, I changed the memory split to 192/32 by taking a Debian Pi SD card and copying the file start19232.elf file to start.elf on the puppy first partition replacing the start.elf.
Having done all that you wind up with a Puppy linux which is a fairly full featured linux designed to be conservative on memory use.
It does use Chromium for a browser, big and slow, features HTML5 which will do youtube video's
v e r y s l o w on the Pi, I would say unusable.
Now I do a lot of internet and happen to prefer Debian using Midori for that, (no you tube video) but I do intend to try various Pi operating systems. Maybe Firefox OS next year, maybe there'll be another Pi by then. Wishful thinking.
