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.

WiFi works

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. I bet most people have undervolt icon at boot as well as I have. Also, I run it with official 4.14 kernel just built for aarch64, n...

Updated graphics stack

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. But that isn't the only way! Minimal C code #include <X11/extensions/scrnsaver.h> #include <stdio.h> int main...

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

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?

If you are up for storing settings only, you could trace every change that you've made and store it in a script that applies these changes to a new installation that is backed up along with config files.
