Re: Fake Raspberry Pi

"Heavily tested"? Yet you allegedly missed the glaring problems with the USB subsystem... Yes, we know there is a USB problem, we didn't when it was released... Then that is incompetence, pure and simple. At the very least you should've been aware of the existence of the problems the Raspberry Pi h...

That's just it though, the Raspberry Pi is supposed to be a finished product, albeit one without a case. It's not supposed to be a prototype.

Re: USB - the Elephant in our Room

I went as far as soldering bypass shunts on the polyfuses and powering the Pi through the GPIO pins to try and get one of my 4 webcams to work reliably. Powered hubs tend to cause as many problems as they solve. They all work for a short period before croaking with segmentation faults and dmesg ful...

Re: USB packet loss.

But, there is progress, and the issue is being taken seriously, contrary to what some people seem to believe. Not seriously enough. The USB issues won't just be specific to the Raspberry Pi but will affect anything else that uses the BCM2835 SoC. All the current other uses of the 2835 seem to be fi...

Re: DOSBox doesn't work properly

Are you using a USB hub with your Pi? That was the cause of Ethernet problems for me. Starting X windows would cause the network to die. Starting GPM had the same effect, so it was apparently something to do with the mouse. Removing the hub and connecting the keyboard and mouse directly to the Pi fi...

Re: Network problems and hangs... losing faith...

I don't expect the Pi to work "plug and play with any bit of hardware you choose". A reasonable expectation in my book is for the Pi to work perfectly with USB hubs. It doesn't. not to be pedantic, only to further knowledge, but you do understand that the PI has a complete hub inside?! Yes, I do. S...

When X is running, the ethernet is dying... Perhaps this is not related to the fact it's X, but just related to the fact that the cpu load reaches 100% when building up the graphic screen?
