Re: Virtualisation on the Pi 2?

ejolson: The reason patches are required is because Broadcom has not released how to do GIC on their CPU's. I doubt this has changed. It's been a few months since I've investigated virtualization on ARM, but this is what I recall: I think it's actually a common problem on ARM SoC's. Their feature li...

Re: Virtualisation on the Pi 2?

What would be more interesting is virtualization on the H3 SoC. It's MUCH cheaper, more performant, much better IO, and more energy efficient than the Broadcom chips. You can have gigabit LAN, 4 REAL (not behind a hub) USB ports, and 2GB RAM all for $35. The H3 is quad core, supports virtualization ...

Re: Raspbian's new insanely bad design decision: DHCP Static

Just using dhcp in /etc/network/interfaces will disable dhcpcd (although it will generate an error message)...

Raspbian's new insanely bad design decision: DHCP Static IPs

I've recently been informed, and have seen a few sites claiming that in Raspbian Jessie: 1. /etc/network/interfaces will no longer be used properly. 2. All interfaces must be defined as DHCP inside /etc/network/interfaces (including those you want to have Static IPs) 3. Static IP's must be defined i...

Re: Upgraded B+ to 2B+ apt-get update fails

I've just tested the SD card. FIlled it with random data and read it back and md5 summed it. Perfect.
So must be something else messed up?

Is it okay to install raspbian on a B+ update it etc, and then use the same SD card on a 2B?
