This is fan mail for Pd on Tiny Core Linux onn Raspberry Pi.
TCL is a 50 megabyte GNU/Linux distribution which is
immutable-by-default and runs very well on the Raspberry Pi.
I managed to compile Pd and got it to output a test tone which is why I
am posting here. To do it yourself:
* Install the alsa packages
* Install the compiletc package
* Compile Pd with `make -f makefile.gnu` inside the src directory
* Run `pd -nogui mypatch.pd` from the bin directory
If you want to launch a Pd patch at startup add your command to
So far this seems like fertile ground as an alternative to the Raspbian
distribution with its multiple-gigabyte bloat. Seems perfect for
embedded Pd devices like guitar pedals, synths, and what-not.
Tiny Core Linux does not use systemd.
