It's currently showing it'll take 3 days to download, but the connection's active.
Did you try let it finish?

Also, if you fetch any other package from muug.ca you will see it is fast enough.

Again, it is not a network or bandwidth issue.

Mirrors sometimes time out. Rather than editing your apt configuration, try again later.

The muug mirror seems to be a tad slow today.
I did try on several occasions, always error on the same file... it is not a network issue. The mirror has an issue.

Re: The Little Computer That Could

We've just started using the pi, and my son was really excited about this game - but it freezes after the parallel parking. I saw somewhere else to plug the mouse directly into the pi, and have done that, but it still freezes. Anything else to try? Do you have a model A or model B? The former may n...

You can drive the truck with cursor keys.
But crane control is either via mouse, or with a PS3 gamepad.

The Little Computer That Could

There was once a Little Computer called Pi. He was smaller than all the big computers around him. Pi wanted to do the work that the big computers were doing. He would love to run high resolution 3D games for all the gamers in the village. But the big computers made fun of him. "Oh, you are too small...

Re: screenshot without XWindow running?

I'm pretty sure that the suggestions offered work only if X is running. So in the end I just decided to add custom code to my app using glReadPixels() In case someone else needs it. This writes out a dump, albeit top-bottom flipped. const char* dumpScreen( void ) { static int cnt=0; const int w = st...

screenshot without XWindow running?

Hi there,

My app is console-based (uses /opt/vc API.)
How can I make screenshots if I do not have XWindow running?

Either a command line utility, or an API would work for me.

Thanks,

Bram

Re: Xorg not fullscreen

Awesome.
It works great after editing /boot/config.txt and disabling overscan.

Thank you!

Re: /dev/input/mouse0 and the scrollwheel

Thank you,

Reading the source, I understand that I should be using /dev/input/eventX and not /dev/input/mouse0.
And when reading the event, the scrollwheel is under type 2, code 8.

/dev/input/mouse0 and the scrollwheel

Hi, I've got the reading of mouse buttons and mouse position working, by reading the /dev/input/mouse0 device three bytes at a time (but,dx,dy). My mouse has a scroll wheel. How can I read the scroll wheel using /dev/input/mouse0 device? I am not running X btw, just straight from the console. Thanks...
