Re: Tetris and MAME

Out of curiosity i wanted to see if it was possible to play a tetris the grand master clone like nullpomino or texmaster on the raspberry pi, I googled it and it just so happens that some guy actually tried it: http://axypb.net/2012/11/10/nullpomino-on-the-raspberry-pi/ but he says he only got 10 fp...

Re: Full speed Amiga emulator ( UAE )

How do i delete settings for UAE? I ran it and started it and got a segfault, and afterward I get only a black screen when I run it again. The only way I can get it started again is to redownload the binary or recompile and run it from a different path than before. I've had to do this twice now.

All-in-one computer case

I see a lot of neat cases, but they all have the same problem: They don't reduce the clutter that ultimately comes from the Pi. I would think the ideal case would build in all the most commonly used components. I want to see a case that dispenses the powered hub and uncertain power supply. A case th...

Is it safe to call the MX320 incompatible? I'm on the new Raspbian and it's still not fixed so I think that if they did want to fix it, they would have by now.

Re: GPIO cable, how to use?

I assume I can just cut off one of the ends of my cable and solder pin headers onto those. The only thing I'm left wondering is why they're even made that way. I'm fairly sure connecting two Pis together with the cable isn't going to end well, so what does it connect to?

GPIO cable, how to use?

I bought one of those GPIO ribbon cables from adafruit but I'm not sure how to use it. I also got a breadboard and solid jumper cables, and looking at the free end of the cable, the pins are mirrored. If I keep that in mind, would it be worthwhile to buy some flexible male-to-male jumper cables to c...

The only WiFi dongles you can expect to work "out of the box" (that is connected to an externally powered USB hub, obviously, as no WiFi dongle I know is a 100mA device) is one that has its driver incorporated into the kernel of the linux distro you are using!
