Re: using two Pis as one dual-core?

Is it possible to use two Raspberry Pi computers together in such a way that the result is effectively one dual-core computer? If so, how would one go about implementing this? My apologies if I don't use proper terminology, if I'm being unclear, if there's already a thread regarding this (I couldn'...

Re: Overclocking

Though I know this shouldn't be in the overclocking forum - setting the *_freq_min settings makes my HDMI blank out. It works fine without them.

Re: Overclocking

This is my current config. Seems to be working fine. I cannot get arm_freq to be stable at 850. I am trying to get quake or openarena working to test the gpu settings. Trying Quake3 from memetic.org which is supposed to work with raspianhf with sound. Openarena from Synaptic is giving video mode er...

Firmware info?

Could someone 'explain like I'm five' how the RasPi firmware works?

I'd like to port Open Firmware to the RasPi.

Raspberry Pi Model C - What next?

Well, the Raspberry Pi has been released, and it has taken its time. But, just as the developers did, we need to ask, 'What Next?'.

What do you want from the next Raspberry Pi (if there ever is one?)?

Raspbian LXDE theme

This is based on a Linux Mint LXDE theme that I stumbled across while doing a google search - and as I am not using my pi (forums disallow multiple login), and hence have no pictures to show you. So here is the Linux Mint theme tutorial. I'll try to do the best I can. I apologise for the hugely diff...

Try doing

nano /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

as root

and uncomment some of the other servers like the ones from germany.

Re: Distro problems

The image is 2GB; in reality, the Linux portion is 1.7GB. If you have been gaily installing large packages like Gnome, without extending the partition first, you could easily fill up the free space. This does not explain the Arch issue though. If you pop the SD card back in your PC, what partitions...

Distro problems

I am using an 8GB Sandisk SDHC card. I got my RasPi yesterday, and followed the Wiki instructions for flashing the card to the letter, putting Debian on the card. I plugged it in, played with it, and was quite happy until today. I was getting quite bored with LXDE, so I tried GNOME. And promptly got...

See above.

I've had a lot of "Database Error"s pop up recently, is this normal?

Re: Priceless! Introducing your eldest son to the joys of programming.

Heh - I am a kid - and being bored decided to teach myself how to program in C++.

Now I have a few homemade chess programs that need to be tested on another platform, and £25 should be easy to save up.
