Re: Raytracer in C# & F# running on Mono

"On my i7 at work it renders the 1280x720 scene in around a second. On my raspberry pi it renders in around 11 minutes " So around 600 times slower than an i7 on .net vs pi on Mono) Its almost all FP math so i'm guessing that Mono on debian on the pi is using soft fp? It would be interesting to see...

Re: MonoDevelop C# on RPI (or Visual Studio for Linux)

I have ordered my RPi but i can't wait to find out, is it possible to MonoDevelop C# on PC? If yes, how do i deployed the developed app on RPi? Copy to SD card? Thanks! You can build Mono applications on another machine (like a Windows PC), as long as the build options are set to produce platofrm i...

Re: MonoDevelop C# on RPI (or Visual Studio for Linux)

I'm wondering if once hardware acceleration is available that MonoDevelop will be usable on LXDE or whether it's simply a case of not enough memory on the Pi?

Re: Mono: Cairo not using hardware acceleration

That's a real shame because there's a lot of potential for 2D graphical applications. The Mono applications I've been testing have worked very well apart from the graphics. I guess I'll just have to develop for other platforms and check back regularly.

Thanks.

Re: MonoDevelop C# on RPI (or Visual Studio for Linux)

Yes MonoDevelop is so slow as to be unusable. I've been developing on another machine. I tried using xbuild on the project files but got a task error.

Manually built the project with gmcs in the end.

If you just want a code editor for C# then geany is an option.

Mono: Cairo not using hardware acceleration

I've built a simple graphics project in mono and tried executing it. Even drawing a few simple shapes is achingly slow. I've been analysing the performance of the code and Mono is lightning fast, it's the drawing operations that are killing the speed. I'm running Arch Linux with LXDE and obviously t...
