Puppy does work on the 512mb pi but I think there was an issue with the loader of the Alpha4 release. If I remember rightly I had to mount the sd card on a PC and replace the bootcode.bin file with the one from a Raspbian install.

I have it running here and like all the other puppy variants it seems very slick with a good selection of applications :).

See ... 54#p242754 for the explanation that new firmware is required for the 512M RPi. The Puppy distributions have an older firmware.

A puppy user has reported success in installing FatdogArm
on new board.
I've got to run FatdogArm on a Raspberry Pi 2 and using Berryboot as bootloader. ... &start=210

It needs testing.
