When is it available?

New Barry k SAP6 instructions and download

unxz or the .xz extension used by Barry K?
.xz is the latest compression type, much smaller than .gz or .bz2 or zip. The 'unxz' utility decompresses it, and it is then piped to 'dd' -- the "|" is the pipe operator, which means that the output of the unxz operation becomes the input to dd.

How do I compile programs in Puppi Sap?
You need the devx
Puppy can be transformed into a complete compile environment by the installation of just one file, that we refer to by the generic name of "devx". In this case it is 'devx_sap6_5.91.sfs'. Normally, the Bootmanager can be used to install and uninstall SFS files, however due to the manner in which Puppy is installed on the SD card, it is necessary to click on the devx file to open it, then copy all the files into "/" -- see instructions at I have not tested the devx. If anything is missing out of it, fixes welcome. Note that as well as C/C++ support, the devx has Vala, Genie and BaCon compilers, see and -- BaCon is enhanced BASIC and is our recommended language for all newbies who want to be able to create fast and small compiled apps. Note, there is also an IDE for BaCon, and a GUI RAD, but not yet included in the devx.
Lobster note: I am going to test devx now
