Re: Raspbian with XBMC image download

Thanks for this image. I had to remove the overclocking, and it works fine with the persistent network config removed. With the overclock at 900mhz and 500mhz the HDMI would fail after a few minutes with XBMC running, (800 and 400 are stock) - and it was displaying Bad IRQ 75 errors every few second...

Re: config menu: option to change keyboard?

Yeah, the Raspbian installation handles this much better.

Re: Programming in Basic on Bare Metal Tutorial 1

Obviously Tuffy, you don't need anything else to program. If the program uses a single command "Print Hello" - and the only command the system supports is Print, then that is all you need. Would the slideshow work if you needed arithmetic operations or the other features you speak of? No. I think yo...

Re: Programming in Basic on Bare Metal Tutorial 1

What I meant was, to simply turn the raspberry pi on and make it do some 'work' that is meaningful to create something, this is great. I bet it even boots faster than the default OS. Eventually I'm sure all the other required commands would be added, it's not going to be initially used to create cut...

Re: config menu: option to change keyboard?

Maybe what it could do is - for the selection screens, have it auto-select the currently highlighted option in the list, then you can just press enter. It would make for a smoother more user-friendly UI. You can only have a single possible selection in the list anyway - for both the locale, and the ...

Re: config menu: option to change keyboard?

I think I figured out why it didn't change the keyboard layout - who thought it was a good idea to use 'spacebar' to confirm selections where "enter" notoriously has been the standard for decades? When you hit enter, it tosses up another screen 'as if' it had accepted the highlighted choice.

Re: Programming in Basic on Bare Metal Tutorial 1

That is really cool. It's also a better starting point than learning Python (IMO).

Re: Amiga Roms for Raspberry Pi

Amiga 'roms' ? You mean the bios chip and workbench floppies? You shouldn't need more than the bios chip as far as 'roms' go - and those are all copyrighted.

OS 'Upgrade'

This is more of a suggestion - if anyone ever wants this to take off - you shouldn't need another computer to upgrade the OS image on a raspberry pi. In other words, it 'should' be possible to create a bash script to run once the raspberry pi boots up, that unmounts the primary SD card and partition...

Re: config menu: option to change keyboard?

Some help would be appreciated - with a list of keyboards stretching 3 pages, I'm not sure which one matches up with an "Engage" made in china "OM04715" wired multimedia keyboard - no matter what I choose the tilde shows up for the pipe key. I set the locale to EN_US-UTF-8 UTF-8 and rebooted, I go t...

Re: very very slllloooooow

You might want to try the new raspian OS install - optimized with floating point support.
Or you can try a faster access time SD card - benchmarks are here
