Re: [DEV] LineageOS 16.0 (Android 9) for Raspberry Pi 3 B and B+

Hello, what's the bottleneck currently? My previous smartphone - 1/8gb MT6737M Mali-T720MP2 - has 4gb left and runs everything perfectly smooth despite worse specs than the Pi. It can hold 2-5 apps in RAM on average, can play a lot of games at 60fps without any stutter. I can imagine VC4 driver is o...

Re: Pi4 64-bit raspbian kernel for testing - Focus on Pi4

YouTube windowed 1080p playback is moderately slower, it used to drop 25-30% frames but without video stuttering or antyhing like that.
Now it hangs every few seconds and after few minutes pops up high temperature indicator.
That's on a pi3b.

Re: Pi4 64-bit raspbian kernel for testing - Focus on Pi4

Is there an ETA for stable release? Will we be able to run aarch64 instructions with 32 bit userland? (e.g. to learn armv8 without much hassle) I can see there is no toolchain in repository, but would 64bit assembly work with say this 3rd party toolchain https://github.com/abhiTronix/raspberry-pi-cr...

Android NDK

I've got android sdk using apt, thanks Debian! Now how do I get ndk? I think Debian 10 will have it, but I'd rather not wait for years. Compiling from source isn't an option (IMO) as it would take probably as long as next Debian release, if successful. I know I "should" use Android Studio on desktop...

Re: [Solved] WiFi stops working

Who cares if it appears for under a second?
What I mean is that my problem was NOT related to my psu, as changing raspbian with arch made wifi work flawlessly. Under Raspbian I had this problem from the beginning. For over 2 years now.

Running Arch Linux ARM aarch64 on this pi3b with same 'psu' and stuff has no problems with wifi. There is undervolt icon when running wifi-menu program but that is all.

Could we, please, get updated open graphics driver? Compiling it myself on the pi would take ages and had to be done repeatedly.
Rpi update or repository is the way

Re: Starcraft and Diablo II on Wine (3G/1G kernel) working on pi 3b/b+

It is awesome! I am running Diablo II but some performance optimisation would be great, it runs very well, but not perfect. Is this the problem with CPU or GPU? I have Pi 3B, is 3B+ doing a better job? Concerning GPU, I can think of running mesa, x, and probably kernel with newer work from Eric Anho...

Fixed display power management

Due to Raspberry Pi's peculiarity, default linux DPMS doesn't turn the screen off after idle time, it only fills it with a dark color. That is solved when using the unfinished OpenGL driver.

Switched to archlinuxarm aarch64 to be surprised that qpdfview looks different there.
https://launchpad.net/qpdfview seems dead, but it'd be nice to have those Raspbian changes upstream.

Provide compiled binary or don't bother at all. Bonus points for getting it into the Raspbian repository.

GCC in Stretch

Why do we have both the GCC 4.9 and the GCC 6?
Correct me if I'm wrong but the older one seems as if it was the default.
Which one should I rather choose when compiling things myself?
