I'm using a Class 6 4GB SD card, "Essentials" brand, that I bought from my local Woolworths supermarket here in Perth Australia. It was A$7.99 I think, or thereabouts.After the initial boot this alpha Puppy takes two minutes and 4 seconds to boot on my Pi from my class 4 SD card on subsequent boots.
To compile programs on Puppy you need to install the appropriate devx sfs package-Sailing_Nut wrote:Just tried it for the 1st time last night. Works very well! Chromium browsing is better than on the Debian image!
Great work guys!
Quick question, what packages can I install for C/C++ programming?
(OK one more!) Are there I2C and/or SPI drivers available?

After extraction you should have a file with a '.img' ending. I don't see .xz listed at http://www.rarlab.com/otherfmt.htm as being handled by WinRAR. I think there is a high probability that you have not destroyed the SD card. Try extracting again, using 7zip if necessary (http://www.7-zip.org/) and writing to the SD card again.malc wrote:I think I extracted the file with winRAR. I ended up with an image file, but it wasn't a standard image file and windows 7 didn't show the little image icon that it normally does. The file ended with something like '.xz' or something.
When I went to use Win32 disc imager it didn't see the image file as standard, I had to use the other option in the drop down box.
I didn't realise it was possible to destroy an Sd card, I thought you could always just flash it.
