Re: MotioneyeOS on Raspberry Pi ZERO W ?

Before first boot you have to edit/create the wpa_supplicant.conf file in your /boot/ to use whatever wi-fi you're connecting to as the OS will crash if it can't connect to a network. The file is only read on first boot so you'll have to re-image the SD card if you have at typo or booted it without ...

Re: YouTube Videos using the Raspberry Pi Zero

I used to use a similar setup on the Pi 3B (not plus) overclocked to watch youtube videos through Kodi/w hardware acceleration and the youtube plugin I ended up using it over VLC because it seemed to run smoother. 720p was choppy but relatively usable but if you wanted consistent smooth play back yo...

Are there any officially available stats for pi install base?

I've seen numbers thrown around here a few times and the last number I could find was 30 million last December (I assume that covers all versions?). I'm curious how far up it's gone since then and also what those numbers look like when compared to the rest of the computing world.

Just curious if there's a timeline on the software/drivers getting up to conformance with what the graphics silicon theoretically supports (which AFAIK is Opengles 3.2/Vulkan). I remember seeing the 3.1 conformance announcement just kind of drop out of nowhere (on the blog) with a forum post hinting...

My list is currently very short and the reason I started thinking about it is the recent development of the 64 bit beta making open morrowind a simple sudo apt install away (sudo apt install openmw).

The new Twister OS by the same group which has a different name now removed the VM and edited some icons so I'm guessing the issue centered around that.

Does the midly increased power threshold of the 8GB have the potential for higher stable OC's?

Seen that the power setup has been moved around and increased slightly for the 8GB memory chip. The emphasis was that the increase was small but I'm curious if that means the 8GB has the potential to overclock higher with a win in the silicon lottery.
