Re: Quake III

I'm trying to get Q3 compiled from the RPi github. When I execute it, all I get is a black screen. The system locks up and I have to reboot. So far I cloned the github quake 3 directory, compiled it on my Raspberry Pi, installed the SDL libraries from the repos, copied the demo files to /root/.q3a/b...

Re: Please use this Forum for Absolute beginners subjects

A separate place for questions such as "I'm trying to compile 'x' software and I'm getting error 'y'" would be really handy. I'm hitting that kind of error lately. I'm familiar with the basics of how to use Debian. However I'm out of my depth after that because when making source gives me errors I h...

Re: What version of Linux is it?

<t>I think that there's a certain trade-off here between teaching people new things and completely overwhelming them.  I don't see anything wrong with the dd or Win32DiskImager methods explained already.<br/> <br/> It wouldn't be fair to overwhelm new users by getting them to compile a kernel themse...

Re: Pi Case

<t>If you really wanted to use that case, maybe you could mount bulldog clips or something similar to the bottom of the case and put the RPi into the clips?  Insulate the metal of the clips by winding tape around the metal part of the clip that comes into contact with the RPi?<br/> <br/> No idea if ...
