Re: Pi 3 painfully slow (Raspbian)

Browsing can be a pain if you open too many tabs - modern web browsers are very memory hungry.

What other things appear slow?

Re: Ethernet slower than internal wifi?

I am surprised too. At the raspberry I used the command/program "speedtest-cli". My computer uses http://www.speedtest.net . I connected it to my smartphone hotspot and instantly got 30mbps over 4G/LTE.... Maybe I try another ethernet cable but I dont think that this is the reason. :| USB-devices: ...

Re: Get rid of permissions

If you are comparing Linux with DOS, there are a few things to think about. DOS is a single user, originally non-networked system. Linux is and always has been a multiuser networked system. They have VERY different demands. If you are using sudo on 80% of command you are doing something very very wr...

Re: Get rid of permissions

Really not sure what you are requesting. I've found, in general, that Linux permission and setting are much easier to get on with than Windows. That said, permission are a PITA when they get in the way, but you really do need them. Computer security is important. I have no idea what you mean when yo...

Re: RPi 3 good enough for (future) kodi

I'm looking to buy a RPi to replace an old android mediaplayer, who sometimes has problems with 1080p movies. Should I buy the RPi3 and will this be enough for current and upcomming changes to kodi or should I just wait for the new RPi4? Waiting for a Pi4 will be a long wait. As above, without know...

Re: What can be done about Python 3.5 slowness?

That’s why I tested the same on Windows as mentioned earlier. It’s actually faster there. But fair enough, I will test a slow part of my actual code to see if it makes any difference with 2.7. I am very interested in Cython though. It promises dramatic increases that go beyond downgrading. Will see...

Have you tried with the very latest Raspbian download? Or are you using a older base version that you then need to upgrade?

Re: use pi zero w in commercial production

Note that quantity sales would have to be quite high quantity, i.e. probably at least 1000, but that is probably negotiable, and will depend on what you are happy to pay. You will NOT get Pi0W in quantity for $10, it will be a big percentage increase on that. So, if you just want 10 or 20 etc , you...

Re: What can be done about Python 3.5 slowness?

Testing with just a 'pass' statement isn't particularly valid. You need some actual code in there, otherwise all you are measuring is the startup/shutdown time of the interpreter/program/whatever. And I would expect that to increase slightly with each version, since they are generally more complex e...

Doesn't that constitute an announcement and we can all now speculate on the emergence of RPi5 from its cocoon. Think that just matches what Eben said a while back? There will be a Pi4, and unless you are a flatearther, it's over 12miles away. Kind of depends on how high up you are (and, yes, I unde...
