Re: Android L Thoughts???

Funny posts and Android flamewar. :mrgreen:

I must have bought the wrong Android devices as everyone works. And they were cheap, made in China so that's probably a bad thing too :) Not to mention that they can run Angry Birds which is blasphemy, madness, as This Is Raspberry forum :lol:

Re: guting a laptop for the rpi

Quite big and powerful. It will be hard to get a solar panel that provides all the power for working atrix and raspberry. Some have batteries integrated and that could work, like http://www.ebay.pl/itm/NEW-High-Capacity-Solar-Charger-and-Battery-20-000mAh-/151327010328?pt=UK_Computing_Other_Computin...

Re: gcc compiler optimisation flags??

Safe flags are like -march=native -O2 -pipe if "native" is supported. Sometimes it may be better to use -Os instead of -O2 for smaller binnary. Bit more on http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Safe_CFLAGS Using exotic or very "extreme" flags may give unstable binary, or not compile every code that compiles o...

I'm using Django, but not related to Raspberry Pi. Our company software stack is Django, Python3, Postgresql, Redis, Celery and Nginx/Gunicorn for production server. Very efficient to work with and to run on production :)

Re: How possible is it to port over android 4.4 kik-kat?

Android in general has apps, SDK and a lot of developers willing to write apps for low power/low computing power devices. Although Raspberry Pi SoC is bit low-end even for Android it may start some process of reaching the mass market by "Raspberry Pi" as a brand, apps, idea. I'm playing with linuxiu...

Re: How possible is it to port over android 4.4 kik-kat?

Android is certainly possible on the Raspi - it just needs a lot of work that the Foundation is not willing to put in, as Android does not have any benefit to the educational side. More than 200 million devices per year quarter sold. Nice platform (if you like Java) to create applications, educatio...

Re: How big is the Raspberry Pi community?

There is nothing wrong with making your own Arduino (or mbed) type board, so there is a lot of them and a lot gets sold.

Re: How big is the Raspberry Pi community?

Per active users, usage Raspberry Pi can only compete with Arduino community. No other has so big codebase and active users, usage cases etc. In terms of sold units Arduino would probably win (many boards at various prices), but codebase size is probably similar, except maybe for more advanced shiel...

Re: How possible is it to port over android 4.4 kik-kat?

I also wonder how many apps would run on ARMv6 Raspberry Pi. Some apps use specific ARMv7 instructions and Intel x86 chips have translators for them so those apps actually work (although performance isn't optimal then).
