armv6 pet packages uploaded

June 13, 2012 — BarryK
I have created about 200 PET packages for an armv6 CPU, specifically for the Raspberry Pi. I did this manually, and I have lost count of how many days it has taken.

Here they are:

These are the 'common' PETs, that are likely to be needed for all Puppy builds.

" I have lost count of how many days it has taken." """"""" Beats thinking about storms eh! About time for a break BK. Flying a kite would be exciting now in Perth. But I think a nice Decaf would be better for you. Now that you are in the big smoke try to look for Schibello decaf....beautiful. Ah! no cafes yet in WA. Chris.

"I had a midday snooze, then an iced coffee! Now for the next step... One of my "problems" is that I often have ideas, but no time to implement them. There were lots of intervals when the RasPi was compiling and I was just sitting there staring at it. A very ripe environment, and ideas kept popping into my mind. I made some notes, some little things to improve Puppy, will look at them again later.

"dc, It was all done on the RP. A one-off manual effort. The rest of building a pup will be much more automated.

"Now that I have gotten my simple icon tray roughly finalized, I have shifted focus to making Xfbdev more useful. IIRC it is much more seamless on arm???, but x86 has the kludgy vga=<mode> kernel command line parameter (I am trying to fix that here:) It could be a good small fallback for all supported platforms.

"smokey01, Good to see! It is a shame that SeaMonkey crashes with an illegal instruction. Probably this needs to be reported to the SM developers as a bug.
