Re: D.Link DWA 131 WLAN/USB Adapter not working

If you can't wait for MrEngman to get back home, you can try the steps here to compile the driver for yourself: http://gibbalog.blogspot.com.au/2015/11/compiling-8192eu-driver-for-raspberry-pi.html Worked great for me, though I did have to modify the file in step 3 manually. http://i.imgur.com/b2W0A...

Re: Raspberry Pi 2

Only to the extent that MS is doing its best to make things "easier" for the "average" user by hiding all the interesting stuff that the Pi explicitly exposes. (I apologise in advance if this comes across as confrontational, I really really don't mean it that way!! :) ) How can you say that when it...

Re: Raspberry Pi 2

Windows Server Core is a great and useful thing, which you only interact with via CMD/PowerShell. If they're saying "no GUI" then it may well be a similar story here.

Keen to see how this fans out!

Re: Ways to make a RPi2 NOT able to run Win10

I know it's a bit early to ask but are there some programmable fuses i can burn in the RPi2's CPU to ensure that Windows 10 will never ever boot on it but Linux will continue to work ? What is everyone's opinion on that ? Jesus. Just don't use it. Nobody's forcing you to, and nobody's going to brea...

Re: Building Quake 3 in Raspbian

Another good build guide here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 593#p83593

This one includes some configs that can amp up the framerate quite a bit! :)

Re: Building Quake 3 in Raspbian

Running as non-root is simple. As root, type: usermod -a -G video [username] Done. Log out, log in with the user you added, should work. This will work for anything that uses SDL, like DOSBox or ScummVM. (In fact, it should work for anything that uses directfb) Also, to run a benchmark use the follo...

Re: The Pi's Chinese rival has arrived

This is probably more like Pi's Chinese rival: http://www.aliexpress.com/product-fm/532332455-Mele-A1000-TV-box-Allwinner-A10-hackable-device-wholesalers.html It still has a lot of the issues listed in this thread, but the higher specs would be better suited to the Pi-as-a-cheap-media-player crowd (...

Re: DirectFB

Another vote for DirectFB+OpenGL ES here.

I want SDL apps to use less CPU updating the screen. :)

Re: Using the PI as a carpc

No need for a USB-Serial adaptor, there are UART pins right there on the board.

For about the same price, you can put together a circuit with a MAX232 chip, and get something far less cumbersome than those USB-Serial adaptors.

No special drivers needed, either.

Re: Debian Hard Float (armhf) for RPi

FWIW, I've just successfully built DirectFB for use with libsdl, and played Keen 4 in DOSBox, with kinda-sorta OK performance. All on the Raspbian-v3 image. Performance seems slightly improved over the foundation's Debian image, but still have the drawback of software-rendered framebuffer chewing up...

Re: Emulators and the R-pi

I've successfully run DOSBox and ScummVM, both with sound. (Yeah yeah, ScummVM isn't technically an emulator :ugeek: ) I think that using software DirectFB is causing performance issues though, once there is an OpenGL ES driver for SDL, I think these two will run great. (E.g. when the screen pans in...

Using the v3 image, I'm getting a lot of "mmc0: Controller never released inhibit bit(s)." messages. But there don't seem to be any other symptoms. What's causing that?
