Re: No video output from RISC OS

Try setting an explicit monitor resolution in config.txt - most likely the GPU can't work out what you have connected to the HDMI socket and is outputting composite video.

PiZero clock speed on RISC OS

The cpu speed appears to be stuck at 700MHz on RC14, even with Nov 2015 firmware and a 30-Dec-2015 RISC OS ROM image. What changes do I need to make please to config.txt to force the correct 1000MHz speed for the cpu please? Speed switching (SYS "Portable_Speed") is not implemented in the RISC OS ke...

You are probably better posting on the ROOL forum as the question is principally about a dead Iyonix. The drive on the Iyonix is PATA, most adaptors are now SATA (and there my knowledge ends).

Re: Compute module not talking

When it does work (and the replacement board works perfectly), the transfer speed to the CM as a mass storage device should be about 7Mbytes/sec. Hence 10 minutes to flash 4Gbytes. Two hours is (IMHO) a hardware fault. With the faulty CM board in its IO module, I found that lsblk on a Pi would consi...

The RISC OS Pico image is supplied on a 128Mbyte SD card - cost £5 - and boots into BASIC very quickly. Only 7.8Mbytes are used leaving 120Mbytes free.

Re: Compute Module GPIO pins & functions

I'm sure the differences are minor it is just difficult to see how to change the source code when it should 'just work'. The source has already been updated to allow for the fact that the card detect line has gone (model B+ and CM) which lost hardware detection of card removal (now done in software)...

Re: Compute Module GPIO pins & functions

Does that mean that the EMMC lines CLK CMD D0 D1 D2 D3 are GPIO 48 to 53 so that software that controls an SD card on model B+ using GPIO 48 to 53 should just work 'out of the box' on the Compute module? Or is there some subtlety required?

Well, that's obviously up to the RISC OS developers to fix - if they think enough people will want to run RISC OS on the Compute Module for them to spend the effort 'fixing' it It is (at least) possible that RISC OS has some attraction for embedded devices.

When you read an image from the card, it will read the entire card, even if the partitions created were, in fact, originally smaller.
