Re: pi in a pc case

Might it be easier to get a length of fibreoptic/light guide and glue one end to the top of the ACT LED and the other to the back of the case LED? No software and no wiring involved :) You could probably do it in software, one way could be to constantly monitor the state of GPIO16 (the ACT LED usin...

Re: Coreboot

anything in software/hardware is possible but some things are more work than they are worth to get working, i.e. iOS on raspberry pi and WinCE on raspberry pi. On this one though, I would say is a very useful idea, but good luck porting it to arm. I suggest emulation of a BIOS in such a case, as for...

Re: RPi fixation in a case

I decided to use the case of a dead PC. oddly I actually was able to contort the raspberry pi pcb to fit inside the case, though it is awkward to access the ethernet port with where it ended up fitting inside the case since it is so close to the front panel over by the hdd mount area. here is what i...

pi in a pc case

my pc finally died so I put my pi in it. so fat I got front side USB working, have an idea how to utilize the ATX power supply but will wait on that one until I have the needed parts. I also wired a fan on P5 from a dead laptop that is more than 10 years old (oddly the fan is still good) and wired a...

Re: Project: Android JB 4.1 with Hardware acceleration

translation: still not working. double buffering is required for JB. result: unusable build. page flipping is required for wine's GDI to do off-screen rendering as well which is why due to the fact that wine's gdiplus does not support it, certain apps, such as synthmaker do not render right. rather ...

Re: Windows CE

try teaching your granny how to use Windows 8 and you will see what I mean. "Where the #$%@ did the start menu go !?" lulz. on the other hand, give them a KDE 4 system and they will recognise the kmenu as something very much like that start button remember. chances are if anyone sticks with Windows,...

Re: linux multilib for raspberry pi

by aaa801 » Tue Apr 09, 2013 3:09 pm Why? so that we can have a full hard float system with support for soft float at the same time for things like mono while still for the most part benefitting from the hard float abi for everything else. quite a few x86_64, ppc_64, and mips systems do it with /{,...

linux multilib for raspberry pi

anyone think of building a multimib system with both abis (i.e. /usr/lib for hard float and /usr/libsf for soft float)?

Re: Windows CE

actually that is more than I expected, I expected 0 apps on arm that are win32, that a hacked mingw for arm would be needed. as for a toolchain for reactos, it indeed does exist and it is similar to the android build system in its design, so a port would indeed be possible, as for probable, that is ...

mdpi

I am planning to embed a raspberry pi and a real genesis/megadrive motherboard into a genesis 2 case. the goal is to get the raspberry pi to control power to the genesis via gpio and to send data to the genesis cartridge slot as well via gpio and to use a dazzle usb built-in to capture video. any id...

suggestions for Rev 3 raspberry pi

I have a few ideas for the next revision of raspberry pi that would sorta save money: 1.) have the next one boot off USB instead of an SD card. this would give the end user a lot more choices of boot devices. as a matter of fact also removes the SD slot off the board too. 2.) add support for GPT par...

I feel this package is missing from gentoo and wish to add ebuilds that use the same versions that gentoo-sources is using. so far seems the highest version I can see in my portage tree is =gentoo-sources-3.8.4 here is how that one will work: 1.) download the 3.8.x kernel source. 2.) download genpat...

I am curious, is there a way to boot an external hard disk with a GPT from a raspberry pi? just wondering.
Edit: I know that the bootloader needs to be on an SD card so don't tell me that part, I am implying the root partition being on a hard disk with a GPT

Re: RetroPie Project SD-Card Image

I have a question: is it possible to get retropie to work with psx/ps2 memory cards? I could just use a standard sixaxis controller as an I/O joystick device to free up the GPIO if needed. or do I need I2C for that?
