//Puppi pre-alpha running on ARM Raspberry Pi Motherboard//

**What is this?**
This is Puppi Debian - 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 [[PuppySchoolRaspberryPi Puppi]]
[[PuppiArch We also have a Puppi Arch pre alpha]]

**Help me please!**

**Step 1 download and install Debian Squeeze on a SD card**
**With Puppy**
[[ later image available]] from Raspbian - note passwords if using Pisces image

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
[[ Raspberry + Puppy Power]]
[[ desktop wallpaper]]
[[ older wallpaper design]]
[[ pacer106 design]]
**Add More Puppi artwork**
[[ Wallpaper]]
[[ Puppy artwork]]
[[ Neu icons]]
[[ Nimbus icons]]

**Step 4 Configure your setup [optional)**
Configure your timezone:
dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Configure locale settings:
apt-get install locales
dpkg-reconfigure locales

Configure keyboard settings:
apt-get install console-data
dpkg-reconfigure console-data

**Step 5 Standard Debian way to update your installation**
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

**Step 6 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:
- **rox-filer** = rox file manager
- **chromium-browser** = Google Chrome, faster and more stable than Midori
- **mtpaint** = bit map paint
- **dia** = structured drawing package
- **gftp** = file transfer protocol program
- **xchat** = IRC chat
- **transmission** = bit torrent
- **gnumeric** = spreadsheet

**Step 7 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 8 Create an image file of my changes for other Puppi Users?**
dd if=/dev/sda of=/path/to/a/mounted/filesystem/filename.img
%% [[ details]]

**Step 9 Add programs compiled for Raspberry Pi ARM v6**
[[ Not yet tested]]

**Step 10 Add/Create custom [[ Bacon Programs]]**
[[ Bacon BASIC to C Converter programs]]
like so
on programs using HUG

**Programs NOT currently recommended for Puppi**
- mhwaveedit = Jack/Alsa driver curently Alpha status, not reliable
- iceweasel = Firefox (took 23 seconds to start up)
- synaptic = huge and slow, tends to crash
- inkscape = structured drawing package, huge may be too slow presently
BarryK has compiled inkscape lite for Arm6

**How do I move files from a USB keydrive on or off Debian Squeeze?**
Change the permissions. You can do this from the file manager
I changed everything to read/write and executable
In Rox the USB will be visible in **/media** folder

[[ 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
