Pnethood does connect to WIndows shares. I'll admit that I haven't tried it on the RPi Puppy and I've found it to be a bit hit and miss with the x86 version 5.2.andymo wrote:Hiya,
Non-Linux user here.
I assume I have to install Samba to connect to my Windows shares?
Puppy's Pnethood appears to do an IP scan for Windows 'Servers' (not shares)?
Where can I find information on how to install a lightweight version of Samba.

Slackware for Pi is already available. You can install 13.37 or 14.0 versions of Slackware.Rademenes wrote: unfortunately not, Sap is a derivative of Debian Squeezy and Slacko is is a derivative of Slackware, i think there won't be Slacko for Pi before Slackware for Pi
ok, but question was about Puppy Slacko, i'm not developer of Slackoitimpi wrote:Slackware for Pi is already available. You can install 13.37 or 14.0 versions of Slackware.
My guess would be that you have a 512 Mbyte RPi. The larger RAM chip on these needs a more recent firmware than was in circulation when the Puppy image was created.DIYKiwi wrote:Hi
I'm v. excited about just booting Puppy Alpha4 on my RPi & thanks to the developer!
However, I had issues with getting the SD card bootable, & the solution, which may well be posted somewhere else on this forum, may be of use to others:
First do as instructions say to download, decompress the image, then write to SD card using Win32diskimager. However, I discovered that there is a problem with the file called 'bootcode'. If you are writing the image with Win32diskimager in Win7 like me, you'll need to open/explore the SD card after writing, delete the file called 'bootcode' and replace it with the same file called 'bootcode' from the Raspbian Wheezy OS. Get this from your Raspbian Wheezy SD card by opening/exploring it and copying/pasting to your new Puppy SD card.
This booted successfully for me anyway. Good luck
I recall from the Murga forum that Lobster had trouble with sound and I believed he solved it by using separate 5w speakers.WillCK wrote:Well this forum looks pretty dead...but I will give it a shot to see if anyone has any info.
Downloaded the Alpha 4 Puppy image and changed the bootcode.bin to the raspian version so it would work on my 512mb Pi....Puppy booted up with no problem...yay!
Sound doesn't work...boo!
I am using an HDMI to DVI setup so on initial boot I set Puppy to output sound to the 3.5mm jack.
Tried testing...no sound
Ran alsamixer....tried testing...no sound
Anyone have any ideas?
I love using puppy and thought it would be a great distro for this little beast of a board...but without sound it's pretty useless to me.
Thanks for your time
