Re: PI3 microSD and wear leveling

How can a microSD card possibly have wear levelling? Surely in an SSD with wear leveling the mapping table needs to be in RAM and there needs to be a bank of capacitors so that when the power goes off the processor in the SSD still has time to save the RAM to flash. If the table was just in flash an...

Re: Pi 3 Overheating Issue?

I bought two Raspberry Pi 3s. One can't do anything complex, such as playing a youtube video, for long before it goes funny, mostly the running program just closes on it's own. Try appending "over_voltage=2" to the /boot/config.txt on the unstable one. There have been a couple of reports now that a...

The other is fine.
This is with the same microSD card and same 5V 3A power supply.
Could this be due to overheating?

Re: Latest and Easiest way for Quake3 on Raspberry Pi

Anyone know how to get the quake3 that's already in the Raspian distro running? I've followed the instructions and used the script to create quake3-data_30_all.deb using 1 file from the original PC game and one downloaded from the internet. Then I installed it with sudo dpkg -i. However the game jus...

Z.
Where?

In fact where is ANY Fedora for the RPi?

It seems to have been pulled from the download page.

Re: Doom/Doom II/Quake (accelerated)

I know there's an android version of DOOM, but I'm not sure if it's been ported to native ARM code or to Dalvik VM. DOOM doesn't require acceleration. Remember, this is a game that ran well on i386-SX. Actually Doom was pretty poor on a 386SX, a 486 was best, and that was, of course at only 320*200...

Re: Debian 19-04-2012 issues

AFineTapestry, pluggster: There is NO NEGOTIATION with RCA composite video and NO real possibility of different resolutions. If you have an NTSC TV you have to use 480 lines and for PAL TVs it's 576 lines. The RasPi will NOT be able to work out which kind of TV you have, It just assumes NTSC unless ...
