Re: Problem with Quake 3 cross compiling on Ubuntu 12.04

Will give it a try in a bit. Thanks dom, been trying to work things out as best I could by myself but that one threw me to a dead end after hours.

Re: Wiki for cross compiling kernel on Ubuntu fails on line 1

On Ubuntu 10.04 LTS trying to follow the kernel/cross compile tutorial. Entering the first line:

sudo apt-get install gcc-4.6-arm-linux-gnueabi

Will result in an error about it not being found. Amusing, but I guess it needs an update.

Re: Getting Quake 3 running? Any guidance yet..?

Projects like this really help with incentive to learn how to do things... but some kind of start point is useful to go from. Might ...

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

I also wanted to thank those of OpenELEC for this. Took me 3-4 hours to build, and in the process I ended up with a nicely working long term Ubuntu install for building future RPi friendly things. Well written, well explained, well executed. Fantastic.

Re: Installing FUSE, the Spectrum emulator. Arch or Debian instructions wanted.

<t>A further useful tip; if you find yourself running into memory-related errors at all when building programs for Arch, first of all try doing it again without starting LXDE up. If that fails, type:<br/> <br/> cd /boot<br/> <br/> cp start.elf start.elf.backup<br/> <br/> This will create a backup co...

Re: Installing FUSE, the Spectrum emulator. Arch or Debian instructions wanted.

Added warning: Don't bother attempting this on the new Arch image just released. For some reason installing the build tools throws up virtual memory errors and LXDE appears extremely prone to freezing up - taking the entire system out and meaning you need to rewrite Arch from scrach.

I just got FUSE to compile and run properly on Arch. Playing Skool Daze (with the classic 8-bit music and sounds!), very happy. May even write a `beginners guide` to compiling it if there's interest.

Re: Well, I HAD a perfectly scaled desktop with Arch. Then I updated...

If you're referring to the one on the fat32 partition:

#hdmi_mode=19
#arm_freq=800

Is all that is in there right now. Never edited it as I've never needed to. My TV has an aspect ratio option that is called "Just Scan" which until now had been scaling it perfectly.
