Re: Accelerated X driver testing

I don't mean any offense but I think you may be jumping the gun when you say "It seems that this thread and the work on the driver was abandoned by Simon." Yes it has been two months since Simon has last responded in this thread and maybe he did abandon the project, or maybe he is taking a well dese...

Re: I ordered a Raspberry Pi...

I really like the connectors posted by pjc123, so much cleaner then my own implementation of the cobbler. http://imgur.com/uqmuh You can use any ribbon cable so long as it doesn't have any of the holes filled in (like some HDD ones) and it has >= 26 pins.

Re: IR remote with GPIO port

As the above people have stated you can definitely use the GPIO for decoding infrared signals from a remote. I was initially doing this myself, however the case I have is opaque and I didn't want to leave the case opened with a couple cats running around and sniffing everything. So I ended up not us...

Re: beware of overclocking?

It probibly isn't worth your time to put a heatsink or fan on this thing either. It will buy you a very minimal amount of headroom per the cost. While you're obviously right and a heat sink on these sleekly designed little buggers is wholly unnecessary. You are ignoring one of the main reasons to p...

Re: Accelerated X driver testing

No, we found that using the most up to date receiver w/ the stock Raspbian image WAYYYYY faster then the RPi-Tc build which was slow as snails on sandpaper.

I'll PM you the rest as I don't want this thread to split from its original important topic.

Re: Accelerated X driver testing

Hello, I'm also using RPIs as thin clients in my company. To get the Citrix Receiver working I had to install Raspian soft float. Is there any chance you can provide soft float binaries in the future? We are using the same thing at our office. Which receiver version are you using? Did you make your...

Could you open the webpage www.canpages.ca and let me know if you get the same error? Hey juppiter89, Did X actually crash when you went to that webpage or did the Raspberry Pi just become unresponsive?

Re: Price comparison of RPi and competition when importing t

I'm confused by your final statement -that the Rasp is not cheap when compared to the Cubieboard. When by your own price table it is 50% cheaper....and that with saying the cost of the Raspi is $50, when it is fact $35, plus taxes/delivery, which doesn't seem to be taken in to account in your table...

Re: Accelerated X driver testing

This is where I got stuck before as well before. You should be logged into the RPi with SSH and running the last 'running it' commands (Not locally on your Pi). Then open up another SSH and run the command startlxde and you should get your X windows. I think that should do it, however if its not the...

This seems like it would be a waste of resources after you've spent so much time in development to begin building there own X11 drivers independent of yours. Unless by 'we've put engineering resource on it' L...
