PostPosted: Fri 14 Mar 2014, 06:35    Post_subject:  Puppy Linux on ARM processor  

I am new in flashing ROM on device. So I wan to ask that I have android device with processor of Telechips tcc 8920. I wan to puppy Linux on that device that device has internal memory (ROM) 1 GB and 3GB internal SD card. The desktop version of the puppy is only 160MB.
    Can I run same puppy Linux on ARM processor after compiling kernel for ARM?
    Will it take also 160 MB on ARM device?
    What will be the procedure to flash that device?
    Why Rasberry PI version takes 4GB which quite huge?
    Is there any ready solution available?

Thank you in advance

No, you need more than just compiling the kernel. You need to compile *everything* (glibc, basic utilities, etc) for ARM too.

FatdogArm is about 270MB but its because it's not fully trimmed.

Every device is different. You will have to ask your vendor on how to do that. Especially remember that many vendors provide solutions to flash Android; but Puppy is *not* Android.

Because it is delivered as uncompressed disk image and is prepared for installation on 4GB SD Card.

The closest one to that is FatdogArm; but even that is not a ready-made solution for telechips-based devices.

I am also interested especially in the original Puppy Linux question. How to compile it for ARM?

1. go here
2. get the build for your arch (armv6 is fine)
3. download/compile/install extra sources here
(see http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/ or packages.debian.org for additional packages)

After you're done with step 3, step 4 is to visit this, and good luck.
