Re: So...Blender anyone?

<t>While I would love to be able to run Blender on an Raspberry Pi, Blender is heavily based on OpenGL constructs that are unsupported in OpenGL ES. There has been ports to GL ES before (see BlenderPocket) but they used wrappers around the OpenGL code, and were only for ES version 1.0. The raspi use...

Re: Release Day Pool (just for fun)

Why bar them from guessing? If they tell us, then we will finally have a release date!

My guess: December 15, 2pm

Re: 3D model of Raspberry Pi logo

I'd like to point out that your model doesn't follow a Bucky Ball(Soccer ball), like the official logo does.

Re: Pi Games

I wonder if Spring and Freespace could (easily) be made to work on the RaspberryPi. Both have their source code freely available, so should be portable. They both do require additional content packs, unlike the ones you have listed, which are standalone. Also, don't forget Cube 2 (Sauerbraten).

Re: Paper Card Model

<r>With the Design now released, I decided to print out a 1:1 scale copy of the board on card stock, just to see that: yes, it is indeed the exact size of a credit card (or any card that fits in your wallet).<br/> <br/> I Inverted it to look good on paper, and rotated the hue to match the Raspberry ...

Re: League of legends

<t>Sadly, since the Raspberry Pi is ARM based, it cannot run windows. League of Legends is currently windows only, and it apparently has terrible WINE support. Even if it had Linux support (like Heroes of Newerth does), it is unlikely that they would release it with support for ARM. The developers w...

Re: Logo Text/Font

We have a logo (and have had for a while), but I\'m just wondering what the official text and font is to go with the logo. Are there any specifics?

Re: Smallest Linux Install

We have an advantage that we are targeting this specific device, so all binaries in the package manager can be 100% compatible and tested. They can also leave out compatibility features.

Re: Known to work SD cards. Please add yours !

<r>Do we know what the maximum speed for SD cards on the Raspberry Pi is? It is possible to get a 4gb class 10 (10 MB/s) for 8 dollars, but will it be limited by some other restriction? You can also get a 32gb class 10 for around 45 dollars. Is there full support for SDHC? <URL url="http://www.amazo...

Re: Inspirational people in Computer Science

Perhaps I chose to add too many strongly geek oriented people. However, Terry Pratchett and Bill Amend should both be recognizable to children with the work they've done.

Re: 6V Lantern Battery

Sorry. I realized/remembered that after posting, and reading above. You could always use a 9volt or 12volt. They will still fall down below 7, of course, but not as quickly as a 6volt :P

Re: 6V Lantern Battery

<r>Well, the raspberry runs on 5v USB, a regulated supply. This means that you would have some issues with overvoltage. You could choose to just add a diode between the battery and the rPi (diodes have a specific voltage drop, with one of the standard kinds being around 0.7v), which is very hackish,...
