Puppy is going back to his roots. Booting from SD. Moving to a new processor. Making every bit count. Join the Puppy geek adventure for 2012. Woof Woof


How soon before Puppy is on the Raspberry Pi?
Guys our worst developer - that would be me Lobster, has a Rpi board. It came two days before general release. More able developers such as Barry, Raffy, Sickgut and others have boards on order.
Lobster tries out Raspberry Pi hardware
Lobster has Pi!
pre planning
The Raspberry Pi is part of PARM getting Puppy available for ARM processors

I am a beginner. What do I do? Details?
How do I get an operating system for my Raspberry Pi?
Currently we are recommending the just released (April 14 2012) Debian Squeeze
(Puppy not yet available) coming soon . . .
We believe this to be the best basis or bootstrapping distro to start with
It contains some Puppy familiar programs, such as Geany and Leafpad
Using Debian Squeeze

How do I burn the Debian Image from 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 and type
	# dd bs=1M if=debian6-13-04-2012.img of=/dev/sdc

more info

How do I get 'The Squeeze started?
boot up
login pi
password raspberry
for desktop

How do I change the desktop image to something Puppian?
Right click on desktop
change desktop or wallpaper (can not remember which - must have sardines) and then drag the file from USB keydrive (I added a lime coloured USB hub to the Raspberry) to the file selector

How do I install my favourite Puppy programs in the Squeeze?
Activate the menu bottom left
Use the LXterminal in the top menu accessories
(password = raspberry)
	sudo su  
	apt-get update
	apt-get install mtpaint

then run mtpaint (that is an example) from the terminal

What the ffffffffff
If you are getting strange auto-repeats or other weird behaviour try plugging the USB keyboard or other device directly into the Rpi, or use a powered hub.

How do we Boot?
What Puppy centric support is available?
New Python, Puppy and Raspberry Pi blog from antiloquax and Lobster
We only have to support broadcom multimedia on the first Puppy build
Once Puppy is solidly on Pi, we will add drivers for other devices
Puppy forum specific advice
Raspberry PI FAQS
Buying Guide
We are near to ARM Raspberry Pi's release for our smart dogs. After we have Pi hardware, comes the first mainstream ARM Puppy ISO with testers, support, derivatives, Puppy artwork (already available), wiki and forum support etc.
Raspberry Pi hardware commitment
RPi Broadcom graphics info

Which Raspberry Pi Foundation resources should I use?
Puppy Logo Join Raspberry Pi mailing list (top right)
Join Pi forum Pi thread
Join Raspberry_Pi on twitter for news as it happens

History of Raspberry in Quotes

In almost every computation a great variety of arrangements for the succession of the processes is possible, and various considerations must influence the selections amongst them for the purposes of a calculating engine. One essential object is to choose that arrangement which shall tend to reduce to a minimum the time necessary for completing the calculation.
Ada Lovelace (died 1852 - early Pi-oneer)

The Raspberry Pi Foundation will be making a big (and very positive) announcement that just might interest you at 0600h GMT on Wednesday 29 February 2012. Come to to find out what’s going on countdown to announcement

"With tens of thousands of customers looking to order on the RS website since the launch of Raspberry Pi earlier today, this is the greatest level of demand RS has ever received for a product at one time. We clearly understand how excited customers are about this ground-breaking product and we are working closely with Raspberry Pi to satisfy this unprecedented demand." Chris Page, General Manager, Electronics at RS Components

Absolutely can't believe the interest. We've got the Chinese State Broadcasting "news" people visiting this morning Liz Upton from Raspberry Pi HQ 3 days after launch
