Re: Resource Monitor?

I made a secondary panel that has CPU Usage and CPU Temp, something easy/fast to get you through for the moment.

Re: Timeframe for USB C power board revision

you could always power it right from the GPIO
supply 3a 5.2volts to +5

the official PSU works great.

Re: IP Scanner ?

there are quite a few gems that are not for ARM yet. Angry IP would be nice!!!

nmap does the job for now.

i made a desktop shortcut for nmap.
the only issue is it runs but then closes the window right after its done!
how do i get it to stay open?

Re: Raspi 4 file server disappointing transfer speed, degradation and segfaults

yeah if you drink coffee and it makes your eye hurt, then you just take the spoon out of the cup first. Before you complain about a potential issue... try to isolate what is causing your issue.

Pi headphone jack -- Video or MIC

Wouldn't it be much more useful to have a 3.5mm jack that does Audio/MIC instead of audio/video, The zero has a video jumper just for the folks that might still need composite.

Re: [Guide] How to install Doom 3 on Raspberry pi 4

sorry to post this here and not somewhere else.
i was wondering if you could compile this for the raspberry pi.
https://github.com/unetbootin/unetbootin/wiki/compile

I figured you were smart enough to make doom3 work, surely you could make this work!
Thanks!

Re: Pi 4 - full specification of VideoCore 6

It is definitely better than a Radeon 9800. That is what I have been able to determine so far. It can play Doom 3 at 720p resolution fairly competently and is likely to see a little improvement as the drivers continue to be worked on. If you want to visualize a comparison, think of it as equivalent...

So it appears to me, the Graphics Capabilities of this GPU are not even utilized yet. is there a way one could understand the gpu in this thing simply, like is that equal to an nvidia 8400gs or GMA950 etc? Sounds like there is 8 core's in this gpu that are not even being utilized at the moment. I kn...
