Well, then I suggest you to do! This will let you know that your HW is working and o.k. as well as you have SW support (drivers) for it.

Re: FFC cable -> something more flexible

Does anyone know of any adaptor to easily convert the FFC ports to something more flexible? I'd like to rotate the Pi Cam but the FFC cable is obviously not very forgiving in twisting motions. Just wondering if anyone knew of an easy way (without lots of soldering and connectors) to go from the FFC...

Re: Freeplay CM3 WiFi-USB Dongle not working

How did you build the CM3 into your Gameboy? Which baseboard do you use? What about power supply to USB devices; is your 5V rail able to supply enough power to USB devices?

This is very bad, I've the same problem. Having a second voltage regolator on 3.3V is blocking the boot.
why do you connect both 3.3V regulators together? Simply connecting the outputs of switching DC/DC regulators just leads to trouble

Re: Multiple Frame buffer beta testers wanted

Unfortunately I've been rather busy on other stuff. There has been work done on the new graphics driver which might help support dual displays, I'll checkon Monday whether that would be of use. If that a no-go, I'll try and find time to update the modules, and/or merge the code to the main branch. ...

Why don't you i.e.buy something like this https://www.pollin.de/p/raspberry-pi-lc ... ung-121564

There are tons of such 'small monitors' available to the market.

Re: USB hub chip compatibility

Can you provide details on your non-working hubs? I've used some starting at 0,99EUR up to some 20EUR and all of them work flawlessly.

If your Hub has a Ethernet Port in addition then your comment is valid.
