Here is the first alpha release of Puppy Linux for the RP. Built from Debian Squeeze .deb binary packages plus many that I compiled. A really small download, just 85.4MB, yet with a very complete suite of utilities, applications and drivers.

Announcement on my blog, with download links:

Just a quick post to say I'm really pleased with the way Puppy Linux is shaping up on the RPi, and very quickly too. Although there are wrinkles to iron out, it already feels much more of a coherent system than the Debian GUI. Maybe because I've been a dog farmer myself for a year or so. This whole RPi thing has got me doing more CLI work, which can't be a bad thing either.

Incidentally, Debian (both Squeeze and Wheezy) had just started to lock-up after a short time in use, even though I'd been happily using it (Squeeze) for a month (?) prior. SAP shows no such behaviour, so I can assume it's a software thing.

Any more folk local to Hawick (Scottish Borders) who fancy a beer sometime?

Just a quick note. if you look at the posts on my blog, you will see that some major bugs in Puppy for RP alpha1 have been fixed. Things are looking very good, and I hope to upload alpha2 in a couple of days. I will announce that here.

Sofar, I'm in love with RasPuppy.
By far the most finished OS for RasPi I've used yet, and it's snappy still!

I'll be standing by waiting for further releases, though for an Alpha this is amazingly usable.

Thanks!
