Special Information

Puppy Arcade can play retro games. Lots of them. It's a live CD - simply download, burn and boot!

Puppy Arcade features lots of emulators, custom emulation tools, easy system setup, a BIOS installer and frontend downloaders and a great all-in-one, cabinet-friendly, multi-emulator rom-loader, which supports fullscreen and joypad navigation.

Linux Installation Instructions

Download puppy-wary-522-XXX.tar.gz to /


extract puppy-wary-522-XXX.tar.gz file:

tar -xvzf puppy-wary-522-XXX.tar.gz

Download Puppy Linux 4.2.0 (Arcade 1.0) ISO Latest Version to /mnt/ :


Mount ISO file to temporary location (/mnt/cdrom/)

mkdir /mnt/cdrom/
mount -o loop /mnt/puppy-arcade-10.iso /mnt/cdrom/

Copy vmlinuz to appropriate directory: (LOWER CASE ONLY!)

cp /mnt/cdrom/vmlinuz /tftpboot/er/plugins/puppy/arcade/

We will have to repack the initrd.gz file to contain the SFS file:

Create a temporary folder:

mkdir /tftpboot/temp
cd /tftpboot/temp/

Copy initrd.gz from mounted CD to temporary folder:

cp /mnt/cdrom/initrd.gz /tftpboot/temp/

Extract and remove intird.gz file:

zcat /tftpboot/temp/initrd.gz | cpio -i -H newc -d
rm initrd.gz

Copy SFS file from mounted CD to temporary folder (LOWER CASE ONLY!!!):

cp /mnt/cdrom/pup_420.sfs /tftpboot/temp/pup_420.sfs

Repack the new initrd.gz file:

find | cpio -o -H newc | gzip -4 > /tftpboot/er/plugins/puppy/arcade/initrd.gz

Remove temporary folder:

rm -R /tftpboot/temp/

Verify files with filelist.txt in each folder.

All Done!
