Re: Web Browsers

It seems that most of the browsers tested are within a few point of each other. I personally find that Chromium takes ages to start and seems to constantly lock-up for a few seconds.

Thinking of maybe using Luakit

How is Luakit? I currently have the following installed on Raspbian: Midori, Chromuim, IceWeasel and another one I cant remember off hand.

Re: MPEG 2 License Not Working

There is NO need to change the serial number. The only reasons you might want to do it are nefarious - to crack the licencing scheme, thereby costing the Foundation a valuable source of income, and perhaps causing MPLA to revoke their agreements with the Foundation to provide licences. That would t...

Re: Quake 3 on Raspbian wheezy

Are you sure that your Raspberry Pi has internet access? Sounds like it doesn't. Although what error does it give you?

Try using Midori to go to any webpage.

Yes it can. This is also referred to "headless" mode.

You can connect just power and a LAN cable, then you can SSH into your RPi.

Re: Regulated versus cell phone charger

Well most of the Pi's I've heard about are running on cell phone chargers. They are pretty good, but obviously do not go the cheap route. Get a charger (most likely a cell phone charger) that pushes 5 volts and at least 1A. If you can find higher than 1A buy it. Also I think that cell phone chargers...

Re: Manual dynamic overclocking

Mind the question. But does that mean you have enabled dynamic overclocking yourself ie: not using Raspbian?

That's very very cool.

@Synthetic_Darkness: He's using `print()` as a functions so I guess your remark about ``/`` does not apply — in Python 3 ``/`` with integer operands will result in a floating point type.

Re: Overclocking

For my RPi it seems that the only thing corrupting the FAT partition on the SD card is, whether the LAN cable is plugged in or not. If I run the RPi without a LAN cable connected, I can change whatever overclocking settings I want, even manually. But if I reboot and plug the LAN cable back in, every...
