Re: I'm sure this is a dumb idea...

Re OP : Perhaps try X forwarding and Mesa ? Better have a wired comnection and a good router. But i doubt that the performace would increase much. Especially when Mesa Is optimized for x86 instead ARM and seems to be relying on compiling with/into the app you want to run. ghans I did consider this,...

Re: I'm sure this is a dumb idea...

Just a thought, since we don't have GPU acceleration yet. If the CPU is going to have to do all the work, why not devote one CPU just to the graphics?

I'm sure this is a dumb idea...

Would it be possible to use one Pi as a "video card", and another as the "computer"?

Re: Super lightweight applications

- No window manager. X with three xterms, one of which uses screen for further versatility. Thinking of replacing those with urxvt running as a daemon to lighten the load even further. - Command line file management. - Conky for system monitoring. - Emacs for editing pretty much everything - need to...

Re: Problems configuring wireless

Which is what I'm trying to learn. Learned a lot using Arch under the old system, just now almost all the tutorials are out of date. I'm slowly piecing together an understanding of the systemd architecture, just takes some time to work out new locations, files, etc. Now that I've got a handle on sys...

Re: Problems configuring wireless

netcfg worked. I'm not sure what combination of services I eventually ended up with, it looks like net-auto-wired.service and netcfg.service. I also had to install wpa_actiond and ifplugd. Was able to remove wicd. Now I get to backtrack, figure out exactly what I did, and add it to my notebook (wiki...

Re: Problems configuring wireless

Nope, not what I want to hear :lol: I'm using Arch because there is no stripped down version of Raspian. I only want a base install to start from, and build up from there. I don't want LXDE, I don't want all the other stuff. And I don't want to have to spend hours stripping it down. Plus I learn mor...

Problems configuring wireless

I can't get wireless networking to work. I'm afraid I'm going to make a lot of people angry by saying this, but the vast majority of the help on the web is cryptic or downright useless. 95% of all Arch documentation refers to pre-systemd configurations, and while I've managed to cross reference a lo...

In order to move it to a different location, or to swap out the SD card, or.... Lots of reasons you might have to shut it down.
