Re: Wayland + XBMC?

What MasterLuke said. XBMC already uses the HW acceleration (it uses dispmanx - Dom does a lot of work on XBMC I believe) which is why is actually pretty damn fast on a Raspi. Its the backend stuff (ethernet etc) that slows it down in my experience, although not enough to be a problem. It's definit...

Re: New hardware random number generator

Hardware has always been there, but no way to take advantage [...] This should fix entropy problems, /dev/random and /dev/urandom should work properly What previous entropy problems were there on the Pi? I'm using a Raspberry Pi as an offline Bitcoin wallet, and I'm very interested in hearing if th...

Re: Has anyone gotten Varnish to work?

Yes, thanks a lot for your guide. Your guide didn't include the "--enable-debugging-symbols" option though, and - if I recall correctly - I needed to add this to get rid of the error. You included it in your message to the Varnish mailing list, that's where I got it from, but not in the guide you li...

I finally made it work. Building git with the following config options (to solve the "CLI communication error (hdr)"): --enable-debugging-symbols --enable-diagnostics And then, in my vcl file, renaming the vcl_fetch function to vcl_response, since a recent git commit changes this function name.

Re: PulseAudio network sink

I've attempted to go the Airplay route as well. I think the pulseaudio network sink is unusable over wifi as well. The good thing is that pulseaudio also has a module for streaming to an Airplay-capable device. And there is a script called shairport that functions as an airplay server that can run o...

I've also experienced strange network problems when playing over a wireless connection though. Not sure if it's related to yours. I'm...

Re: PulseAudio network sink

I don't think it's a bandwidth issue. nethogs says it's using around 170 KB/s, which it should for a 44.1 kHz 16 bit stereo stream. That's very little on a 100 mbit link. I think the issue is either related to intermittent fallouts in the network stream, which - when they are longer than the buffer ...

Re: microUSB data lines

I'm really looking forward to Model A. I agree that USB OTG can be very valuable. The Pi-A would be a great practice board for learning how to develop USB devices. I think it's great that we have Model B, which doesn't support this, and a Model A which does. It just means there are more options to c...

To help identifying our SD Cards, can people post the output of the following command when they post results (from the Pi itself): head /sys/block/mmcblk0/device/{cid,csd,scr,*rev,manfid,oemid,name,serial} This should help us figure out whether two seemingly identical SD Cards really are the same.

I would certainly suggest we do. But then we would need to all use the same command line options. The previous poster who had errors might throw off the benchmark if he is unable to use the -I option. We should also state (as precisely as possible) what SD card we have in our Pi's.

I got my Pi, and my SD card which is a SanDisk Ultra 16GB Class 6 (SDSDH-016G-U46). I also says "30 MB/s - 200x" on the packaging. So I managed to build iozone on the Pi and run some tests from the Pi itself. Here are the results (using the command iozone -e -I -a -s 50M -r 4k -r 512k -r 16M -i 0 -i...
