Re: Mad or what?

As I say this is purely a thought experiment at the moment whilst I explore the technicalities of both hardware and software.

Re: Mad or what?

I would like to correct a few misconceptions. I am not proposing a replacement for a desktop PC with quad core processors, which are hidden behind the operating system and are not easily accessible, if at all, by a users application, neither am I proposing that this would create a fast desktop machi...

Re: Mad or what?

I am aware that what I'm suggesting is 'just' a serial link but that is what the Transputer link is/was, whereas the link on an AMD SHARC is/was an 8-bit parallel link; what these links allow is the development of multi-processor systems with a variety of possible topologies that can allow parallel ...

Mad or what?

First of all I'm not sure if this is the right forum, as my idea spans interfacing and bare board programming. In a moment of mad thought I have come up with an idea that may or may not be practical or even workable, but here goes. Working on the assumption that GPIO ports on one Raspberry may be co...

Re: Raspistill timelapse. Images get progressively darker

I have tried the following command line: raspistill -tl 15000 -t 3600000 -o <filename> -n [/b] the frames started getting darker after frame 52/53. The command line: raspistill -tl 15000 -t 3600000 -o <filename> produced 169 images with the correct lighting (it's still running) Obviously with jpeg f...

Re: Raspistill timelapse. Images get progressively darker

Sorry about the late input to this thread, but today was the first time that I have tried experimenting with the camera properly. My command line is raspistill -co 25 -br 40 -ISO 400 -tl 15000 -t 3600000 -e png -o outside%06d.png -n This produce 40 frames of good pictures. Frame 41 started to be dar...

Re: RISCOS on a 4Gb SD card

I have created two partitions on the 16 GB SD card using EaseUs, the first one is 2 GB and now contains RISCOS. It successfully boots. :) I have downloaded the zip file containing fat32fs. There is already a fat32fs in the !Boot file structure, I have copied the downloaded fat32fs module from the zi...

Re: RISCOS on a 4Gb SD card

I am like the USS Enterprise as far as RISCOS is concerned, I am boldly going where I have never been before. Please could you fill in some gaps for me? Am I right in making the following assumptions: a) this is all done on the Raspberry running RISCOS b) the FAT32FS module actually does the creatin...

I have Raspbian as my OS. I am connected to a Samsung 32" LCD TV via an HDMI. I have successfully modified config.txt to set up the display as 720p and made the necessary changes to force audio output to HDMI ( hdmi_drive=2 ). After manually typing the line to set the mixer output to HDMI sudo amixe...
