Re: Packages from debian you want to see in raspbian reposit

It's nice to see hercules in there.
Seems as if x3270 should be a natural complement to it, though.

Re: hdmi_mode discrepancies?

Ugh. I'm reluctant to start filing reports on actual developer forums. While I'm very familiar with Linux as a user and network administrator, I'm definitely not at the developers' level of technical skill and awareness. In the past when I've tried putting an oar into those waters I've been quickly ...

Re: hdmi_mode discrepancies?

OK, I ran 'pacman -Syu' and it did update the firmware along with a couple of other smaller things. I copied the /opt/vc/lib files to /lib/usr and now the vcgencmd runs. Firmware version on Arch is 328039, dated July 28 2012 now. Firmware version on Raspbian is 325444, dated July 14 2012. Arch still...

Re: hdmi_mode discrepancies?

Interesting. Using this command (logged in as root) as you suggest /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd version On Raspbian gets the following result Jul 14 2012 13:14:40 Copyright (c) 2012 Broadcom version 325444 (release) But on Arch gets this error /opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd: error while loading shared libraries: libv...

hdmi_mode discrepancies?

I am using a VGA monitor and an active HD to VGA converter box. Debian and Raspbian perform well with hdmi_group=2 and hdmi_mode=16 in config.txt. This sets 1024x768 resolution at 60Hz, if I'm understanding the documentation correctly. The same settings with Arch produce no video output at all. I'd ...

Re: raspberry pi foundation raspbian image

You got me. I figured it out while waiting for the message above to pass moderation. I'm not used to working in an environment that is still changing so quickly. Not that it's an excuse, just an explanation. I'll do better going forward. I had updated yesterday morning, but something changed since. ...

Re: raspberry pi foundation raspbian image

FreePascal compiler? Got the base Raspbian distribution up and running, added some tools I wanted without difficulty, including EMACS and VIM. But when I try to install FreePascal, I get a stack of errors out of aptitude. Select package fpc (which has a lot of dependencies, most of which are Pascal ...

Re: raspberry pi foundation raspbian image

The logical arguments in favor of the bittorrent algorithm are good, except that they still do little for those who have limited bandwidth available, or data caps that simply will not permit them to "seed" in return. This makes them look like bloodsucking vampires when in fact they are not. Torrent ...
