Re: IPv6 in the bcmrpi kernel patches (and Debian/Arch distros)

<r>I don't think IPv6 addresses are a nuisance. For instance, I bet you can't even tell me the IPv4 address of <URL url="http://www.raspberrypi.org">http://www.raspberrypi.org</URL> without looking it up. (Or maybe you can because you admin the server, in which case I'll ask about elinux.org, Wikipe...

Re: IPv6 in the bcmrpi kernel patches (and Debian/Arch distros)

<t>I can confirm that it's not available as a module either. I suppose this is at least consistent with the lack of Bluetooth, audio and wireless support in the Debian distro... but I'd definitely compile this stuff as modules. Expecting everybody to compile a custom kernel for their use-case is a b...

We're planning for the RPi to be around for a while, definitely for longer than it'll take for v4 exhaustion to happen.

Re: IPv6 in the bcmrpi kernel patches (and Debian/Arch distros)

<t>I extracted the kernel config from the kernels in the Debian and Arch OS images. I'm somewhat concerned that IPv6 seems to be outright disabled (as in, not compiled into the kernel or even as a module) in both of them. This seems a bit… shortsighted; the Raspberry Pi is exactly the sort of device...

Re: 30mb/s SDHC + Partition = RAM?

<r>That's why you don't buy a Class 10 card.<br/> <br/> I've been looking at benchmarks, and it looks like most Class 10 cards get something like 30 kB/s random write speeds (7.5 IOPS -- about 133ms per I/O!), which is indeed much slower than any hard drive. However, there are some cards that get ar...
