Re: Raspbian ready for prime time?

However unmount should not (IMO) rely on eject, as it is possible you may want to, for example, unmount /dev/sda1, then mount /dev/sda2, which wouldn't work if the device had gone offline due to an eject /dev/sda. Completely agreed there. I think PCmanFS should do something else. But as it is, an e...

Re: Raspbian ready for prime time?

I have noticed the distro isn't particularly complete in some regards. One small example - the eject program is missing from the distribution (the Debian package is called eject). The lack of this means that when unmounting a USB stick from the default file manager, it gives an error message that ej...

Re: Alternative Operating Systems for the Pi

As far as I know the oly OSes that we have for the RPi so far are: Linux RISC OS Plan 9 FreeRTOS NetBSD FreeBSD AROS (NOT the linux hosted version). ChibiOS Windows CE 7 DexOS Of these Linux is not an alternative OS, And I would say hat neither is RISC OS, as Linux and RISC OS are the primary OSes ...

Help with disklabel

Hi, I installed the image from a while back[1] onto my Pi's USB stick and am now trying to get it integrated into my custom partitioning setup on my SD card. However, whenever I try to partition my SD card, *WHATEVER* I try to make those partitions, it ALWAYS gives me some sort of error if not when ...

Re: Aemulor - 26bit emulator for Raspberry Pi 'PreOrders

RISC OS is a lovely OS in its ways, don't get me wrong, and I do thoroughly enjoy playing around with it, and it does have some lovely innovations that it's a shame other OSes have never picked up. I'm not denying that it's a good OS to mess around with and have thoroughly recommend it to friends if...

Re: Aemulor - 26bit emulator for Raspberry Pi 'PreOrders

RISC OS things generally cost lots of money. It's this lack of community/sharing that puts me off in favour of Linux, since I don't have money. For hobby OSes like this*, people should program because they find it fun rather than for money. If you're just interested in messing about with RISC OS, wh...

Re: Alternative Operating Systems for the Pi

IMHO listing OSes not based on the standard GNU/Linux/(option of Xorg) would be the best plan. In which case, I can count: Completely free from Linux: * RISC OS (not Unix-based at all) * Plan9 ("More Unix than Unix") * NetBSD (Unix but not Linux. Very slow because of the debug options currently enab...

Re: Keeping up to date

But doing a pull, does this update everything (binaries, the kernel, etc.), or just sources, or does it update userspace binaries but just kernel source, or what?

Re: Keeping up to date

A plan 9 noob here; will this procedure update all the userspace binaries, etc., just the sources or what? How do I completely update everything?

(Incidentally I tried to update the kernel and failed miserably; check the backlogs in #plan9, due to soft/hard FPU mismatches!)

Partition table support

I'm wondering if anyone is in the process of coming up with proper partition table support for the RISC OS kernel, or if this is simply not happening. I'm just wondering when, if ever, I'll be able to get rid of the crazy partitioning setup on my SD card, it seems to be confusing some of my Linux di...

Re: Plan 9 available

Any chance of sticking a changelog up somewhere/labelling images with version numbers (or at least dates) so people can see when there's a new one and which one they have?

Re: Windows CE

Just posting to say that this is really cool. I never in a million years expected this to be possible. I'm not much of a Windows user, but just for the sure awesomeness of getting Windows to run I'm in ;) I'm sort of collecting OSes at the moment - I have Linux, Plan 9, RISC OS and Android all insta...
