Puppi pre-alpha running on ARM Raspberry Pi Motherboard

What is this?
This is Debian Squeeze with faster Puppy programs added

How do I get Puppi?
You don't. Not yet. You make it! You customise it!
Your Puppy, your choices!
Later we will have a ready made real Puppi

Help me please!

Step 1 download and install Debian Squeeze on a SD card
With Puppy
In Puppy Slacko and most modern Puppys click on the downloaded Squeeze zip
It will expand
Move to the directory where the unzipped image is, open a console by
right clicking and select new terminal. Type
	# dd bs=1M if=debian6-19-04-2012.img of=/dev/sdc

The part debian6-19-04-2012.img is the image and if you have a later image
replace with the updated image name
more info
Other methods Other distros and Windows

Step 2 run 'The Squeeze'
boot up
login pi
password raspberry
for desktop

Step 3 Change Appearance [optional)
Right click on desktop
Change desktop/wallpaper and then drag the file from USB keydrive or download images directly with midori browser
Add More Puppi artwork

Step 4 Install favourite Puppy programs in the Squeeze?
Geany, Leafpad, gparted and a console are already present
Activate the menu bottom left
Use the Lxterminal in the top menu accessories
(password = raspberry)
	sudo su  
	apt-get update
	apt-get install mtpaint
	apt-get clean

look in 'graphics' [mtpaint example] or other category in menu

Programs you can install with apt-get:
Step 5 Move Installed programs to the desktop
copy programs from
to pi/desktop
use command line, File manager or rox when installed
Some familiar programs such as geany, leafpad and gparted are already in Debian Squeeze

Step 6 Create an image file of my changes for other Puppi Users?
	dd if=/dev/sda of=/path/to/a/mounted/filesystem/filename.img 

Step 7 Add programs compiled for Raspberry Pi ARM v6
Step 8 Add/Create custom Bacon Programs
Bacon BASIC to C Converter programs
like so
on programs using HUG

Step 9 Add Puppy Scripts
To Do - compiling of Xdialog

Programs NOT currently recommended for Puppi
BarryK has compiled inkscape lite for Arm6

SD Firmware update The SD image contains two partitions
a boot image similar to a BIOS (see above) and the distro image eg.Debian, Arch, Fedora
The Woof2 system only supports the Mele ARM device at present
My 'Getting started with Woof' wiki page now has information on syncing with latest Woof:
