Re: How to increase OpenVG time performances

Hey Paeryin, I've tried your openvg fork now. CPU load reported by top for my process went down from about 16% to 11%, rendering time (time measured from before Start() to after End() call) from about 55ms to 25ms. More than 100% speed increase plus lower CPU load just by swapping the libraries, tha...

Re: Problem with Wireless Network Adapter Ralink MT7601U

has anything changed inside the kernel regarding MT7601 dongles from 4.4 to 4.9? Users of my EZ-Wifibroadcast distribution report that their MT7601 adapters stopped working after I upgraded the image from kernel 4.4 to kernel 4.9.35.

Raspbian release history?

Is there a Raspbian release history somewhere? Possibly with changelog and the older images for download?

I would like to download the image before the latest (2017-04-10), don't know what it's version name is and can't find anything.

Artifacts, "blocky" video stream

I found something where I'm not sure if this is correct behavior of the camera (or the h264 encoder). When walking through the woods, sometimes parts of the images are heavily "blocky". At first, I attributed this to the complex light conditions in a forest and the fact that in wintertime there is n...

Regarding the overclocking not increasing openVG performance:

Setting gpu_freq=400 and force_turbo=1 in config.txt sped up things quite a lot for me. Force turbo is important.

I have a similar problem with the Raspbian kernel pulled via rpi-source using the same config as stock Raspbian (running kernel config pulled from /proc directory). When using anything higher than 100Hz it freezes randomly.
