Any chance of more progress on the armv6/11 architectures? At least we know Puppy works on it.
Two reasons: more of the early ones were sold, presumably many still in use, than the total expected for these later v7, both now and for the foreseeable future; secondly, this is the architecture of the zero which has a massive potential user base in view of it's price point, albeit appealing to a slightly different audience. v2 &3 are more directed at PC-substitute browsers with a bit of novelty? Zero is being most strongly supported with add-on HW, too.
All very interesting, but sad that ARM sold out. Harold Macmillan must be turning in his grave "...selling off the family silver.." , deja vu all over again.

Nice! Both eth0 and wlan0 (with WPA) work on my RPi3, but I had to make a symbolic link to dhcpcd from dhcpcd5 first to get them working.

Will test more...

I did the installation to MicroSD card on an Asus laptop running Fatdog64.
The process seemed to have a problem with the installation shell command, which gave the following output:
Code:
sh: --stdout : command not found

So I did the extraction and dd’ing to MicroSD card as separate steps which worked fine.
As described above both wireless and ethernet did not work OOTB, but thanks to pakt’s post above
Code:
ln –s /sbin/dhcpcd5 /sbin/dhcpcd

resolved both issues.

"Set Time and Date" seemed to work alright.

Puppy Package Manager appeared to update appropriately. I tried to download and install “HPLIP”. PPM found the package and identified a bunch of dependencies, and when I clicked to install, the program reported that it was checking to see if the files were in the repo, but at that point it hang and the window became unresponsive, requiring a restart of the X-Server to get rid of the window.

I tried to install Chromium and the same thing happened.

The keyboard directional (arrow) keys did not work (they worked fine running Raspbian). Maybe there is a keyboard configuration setting I haven’t checked yet.

Geany and Gneumeric both opened and accepted input.

However Abiword did not open for me by clicking on the desktop icon or the menu entry.

That’s as far as I got.

looking good for a pre-Alpha.!

BarryK:

Please be careful with the Emtec brand. It may just be me but I've had very bad experiences with their brand.

Kind regards,

I installed and my experience is mostly positive. the only real negative is the
keyboard keys.

-right alt key is dead
-the arrow keys in the numpad must be used.

__________________________________

Here is some more observations.

-no 'defaultterm'

-eth0 was tricky to set up as previouly reported

-old version of pmusic doesn't play

Code:
pmusic -B  /usr/share/audio/2barks.wav


so pschedule can't be used as alarm.

_____________________________________________

vi is apparently the only terminal text editor. It's not my favorite Sad

__________________________________________

leafpad can't be piped text. I've never seen that behaviour. Sad
Example:

Code:
docx2txt.pl  example.docx  | leafpad

Here is some useful apps I've packaged for use on quirky prealpha

docx2txt-v7-1.4.pet --> open microsoft docx documents with a right click.
Geany opens with the text. Supports foreign characters. Config file in /etc
____________________________________________________

playmusic-v7-0.1.8.pet ---> thunor script to play a folder of music files.
Config file in /root

__________________________________________________

fatdog_connect-1.12.pet ---> uses mount-Full command to
connect to a server in a network. I use it to quickly connect to a Window server.
EDIT: updated to version 1.13 (bugfix - inserting old address at launch)
__________________________________________

ptm-timer-v7-1.4.pet --> input number of minutes until a note is shown
and a mp3 file is played.

Thanks to pakt for the fix for dhcpcd.

Scan now works in SNS, except it only lists my neighbours wifi network, not mine (which is right here in the same room).

Tried all sorts of things, it just doesn't want to see my wireless network.

I am doing another build, 8.0.9, with the 'iw' package, as I read that is better than wireless-tools. Will play with that.

I also found all of the missing deps for abiword ...quite a lot. In the past, I have compiled abiword myself, this time using the official DEB, hence huge number of deps.

I fixed Dia, now starts. Just needed a symlink 'dia' to /usr/bin/dia-normal

Fixed retrovol.

Added pure-ftpd

8.0.9 won't get uploaded, just for me to more testing.

I have added these extra packages to (hopefully) get abiword to work:

clutter
cogl
evolution-data-server
libchamplain
libsecret

...these are the generic package names. Each consists of one or more DEBs.

EDIT:
Needs this also: json-glib
