Subject description: Small OS for a tiny computer?
 

Hi everyone Cool

Trying to run a Puppy or Puppy like OS on the Raspberry Pi3

So far have tried Easy OS but that is in alpha (did not work so far) Embarassed
Isn't there a Bigdog for the PI or did I dream it?
Willing to try and would prefer a slacko puppi or debian puppi

but Lobster can't be choosers
but they can be pickers ...

What works?

Thanks @Watchdog, will check it out

The original Raspberry Pi was slow - here it is running Puppi
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=t-pJ3eoz9Kw

Now it works - Raspberry pi 3 ...

But are we mean and lean? Very Happy

Here for example is our Raspberry Pi 'news' - iz olde (over twenty years ago in puppy years ...)

I was able to install BarryK 's distro on a Raspberry pi 3 B+

However I prefer fatdogarm distro.
It requires only a fat32 formatted SD card.
Then drag the files to the card...

Thanks @don570

I have the pi3 b+

Looking at the easyos config.txt
and so on ... I am likely to do more harm than good

Will try the fatdogarm you mention ...

Thanks for advice Cool

Update:
OK tried finding the fatdogarm but it is not specific to RaspberryPi? Or missing?
Also is nearly three years old.

Probably better to find something more up to date ...

Appreciate the suggestion. Very Happy

After you've experimented with Don570's version of FatdogARM (no bad thing to do), you can find BarryK's latest release for RPi3 (Quirky Xerus 8.1.4) here:

Thanks amj

Sadly Barry has closed the links mentioned in your post. So now have to find his archives. It means I am spending a lot of time chasing maybe rainbows ...

I could also use a Fedora bare bones and add puppy familiar programs and start boot strapping ...
http://fedberry.org/

Not my thing anymore.

So may have to carry on using Raspbian with rox, transmission, mtpaint, geany (One program already there) audacity (Which I prefer to the Puppy audio recorder) and so on. The cli is fine and the programs mentioned can be added with the Raspbian package manager.

It is not Puppy. I was looking for a 'just works' solution. Rolling Eyes

Maybe it will be compiled and released. Very Happy

Thanks everyone for your helpful suggestions ... Cool

Thanks @perdido and @FeodorF

Appreciate it.

The problem is this:
Both EasyOS (not Puppy)
and Quirky (not Puppy)
are compiled for Raspberry Pi 3 B
I gave my B away and have a RPi 3 B+
.... and frankly modifying something running on the Pi 3 B
is not gonna be as good as everything compiled on and for a B+

... and I ain't going back to my two first edition Pi's which were too slow ... Rolling Eyes

The Ipad (my second from Apple Mega Corp) does for 80% of my computing. I even started learning their excellent Swift Language ... (not yet truly open source as they claim)

However increasingly the nature of computing as a form of consumerism is not working on me. I am spending much more time on Puppy and Linux Raspbian.

It is much harder to be a Linux geek. In these days of phone zombies and the soon to emerge augmented reality, some of us are penguin punks, GNU anarchists and in my case ready to be assimilated by the Dorge ... Cool

Eeh, it's a real tonic to have you back on the Forum, Lobster. I may not have been around during your first residence, but I've read plenty of your posts over the last few years....and always get a good chuckle out of 'em..

You certainly haven't changed, man.....and I, for one, hope you never do. Forums need 'characters', and a bit of individuality. Makes life more interesting... Very Happy

Stick around, mate..!

Thanks for the kind words @Mike Cool

Not many people know what the role of official crustacean is:

- Free fish for all (especially me)
- Doing impossible things with Puppy. I need operating hardware and software for my open source time device
http://tmxxine.000webhostapp.com/
- Encouraging puppitude http://wikka.puppylinux.com/BowWow

Interestingly I have found that the wifi and bluetooth in the pi 3 b+ is different to the earlier pi 3 b and therefore a new compiling is required (really).

If you are thinking of getting a Pi, some advice:

Get a box for it.
Get the official noobs SD card
Get an off switch
Any USB 2 mouse and keyboard will work.
Get a decent power supply 5v Apple ones work but Raspberry do their own.
You need an HDMI monitor or TV ...

Be amazing. I got a kit this time. Yes it was an amazing kit. Cool
