Re: Quake III

Hello!

It feels like I've nearly got Quake running on my Pi, but when I try to launch the game I get an error message, "User Interface is Version 3, Expected 6"...

Is my data file too new?

Any other ideas...?

Thanks,

- Chris

Re: Teaching Programming - How will it all work?

<t>@alpaca - I couldn't agree more - it almost feels as if the hardware is 'done' now - the success from here lies in getting a solid platform on which beginners can start to program.<br/> <br/> To my mind, if a new user even has to hear the words 'Linux' or 'Distro' then we're doomed to failure.

Re: Teaching Programming - How will it all work?

<t>@Trevor - all good points!<br/> <br/> What you're doing in Australia sounds awesome! It'd be great if we could do that sort of thing here.<br/> <br/> My sister is a primary school teacher here in the UK and, from what I've heard, the timetable is so prescriptive that the thought of spending even ...

Re: Teaching Programming - How will it all work?

<t>Is whole-class teaching even the right approach?<br/> <br/> I think teachers are under quite a lot of pressure as it is to deliver the basics (reading and writing) in amongst all the other required subjects. Unless there is a change made right at the top, I don't think it's realistic to expect en...

Re: Suckling learner/help system

<t>Whilst it is running Linux - the end user doesn't need to know that.  You could boot into a purpose-built text based environment which 'hid' much of the complexity of the full Linux environment from the true beginner.<br/> <br/> Whether you like BASIC or not, the simplicity of the BBC Model B whi...

Re: Teaching Programming - How will it all work?

<t>I'm not sure schools which are already kitted out with equipment will be the primary audience for the Pi.<br/> <br/> I think that the Pi will be an affordable tool which can be used to spark enthusiasm amongst young people outside of school.<br/> <br/> I grew up with a BBC Model B and started to ...
