There needs to be a straight-forward way to use the same firmware for BOTH 256MB and 512MB boards.

Haven't gotten one yet, but here's a simple BASH script that should tell you whether your new Raspberry Pi has 512MB of RAM:

Code: Select all

REVISION=`cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep Revision | cut -f 2 -d ":"`
if [ ${REVISION:(-2)} -gt "04" ];
then

Incredible PBX is probably one of the more memory intensive Raspberry Pi apps to date. While it runs fine in 256MB, having 512MB would make some functions like conferencing nothing short of breathtaking. And on a $35 hardware platform. WOW!

When I recently asked an "unnamed source" whether a 512MB version was on the horizon, the original response was "Don't hold your breath." Then he elaborated and said the 512MB version might arrive before I needed to quit holding my breath. Well, not quite... but close. 8-)

Raspbian Networking Is a Mess

My Linux experience is mostly from the CentOS world, but I've gotta say that basic network functions on Debian Wheezy and Raspbian are problematic. Didn't see this with Squeeze. If eth0 has no cable and a wlan0 adapter is in place, the odds of getting a functioning system on bootup are pretty slim. ...
