Re: Chameleon expanding the wrong partition to fit allof sd

no, not had much luck im afraid in trying to re-size the correct partition, it looks like the theory is you have to copy the data from the partition you want to re-size to a ext formatted usb memory stick, and copy the data from the main partition to another ext formatted usb memory stick, then dele...

Re: Chameleon expanding the wrong partition to fit allof sd

from the lack of any replies i guess its never happened to anyone before then? tried several other ideas over the bank holiday without luck. Might have to figure out how to manually re-size the partition then (somehow?) unless anyone has any suggestions?

Chameleon expanding the wrong partition to fit allof sd card

Hi everyone I have just written the retro multi machine emulator 'chameleon' version 031 to a 32gb sd card and booted. I then entered console (press T) and checked the partition sizes using df, it seems that chameleon is re-sizing the wrong partition to the maximum size of the sd card? it is resizin...

Re: portable wifi media server for iphone/ipad?

portable wifi media server for iphone/ipad?

Now that i have my raspberry pi, I am thinking of a battery powered project that acts very much like a kingston wi-drive (a device that connects to ios devices and serves its media to the ios device, no internet or other frills, just a media streamer) but with a lot more storage 32/64/500gb... the p...

Re: Aros (Open source Amiga) running on my Raspberry Pi vide

lets hope Aros does not need linux for long though, and turns into a stand alone os. I for one can not stand linux with its scattery distros and addons/rubbish drivers(and lack of!), makes it a pain to do anything without wasting hours and hours trying to figure out how to do it..... we need an Amig...

Re: composite resolution too low to be of use for programming?

<t>thanks all for your replies, so it should be a bit better than i feared, but still possibly not quite usable for python?   and i cant wait for the flexi printed monitor although possibly roelfrenkema mis-read the question i asked? it was not about higher resolutions, it was about the maximum usab...
