Re: Suspend to RAM and Suspend to disk support for Raspberry

Can someone help me in understanding if suspend to RAM, suspend to disk features of power management are available for Raspberry Pi/BCM2708 SOC. In theory suspend to disk in linux works without any major system power management support at all. You just load memory/CPU state from swap file and resum...

Re: Suspend to RAM and Suspend to disk support for Raspberry

This is partly because the power usage of the device is so low anyway True when considered from desktop or server perspecitve. In mobile, hundreds or tenths of mA when idle is not called low. and the small savings by being in standby aren't really large enough to warrant it. Does that mean the chip...

512MB of RAM? Let's hope :-) After all, you said that model A will never get it, nobody talked about A+ ;-)

Re: uboot - booting rasbian ?

uboot was initially written for X86 PC's using a BIOS, I assume it needed heavy modifications to get it to work for a PI, if it's possible at all. compiling it for ARM instead of x86 would have not been enough. You probably mistake it for something else, see e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Das_U-...

Re: Will there be an A+ now that there is a B+?

But that's journos for you. There is also quite funny conclusion in http://www.raspi.today/raspberry-pi-model-a-plus-released-in-a-few-months/ for future model A+ "we can quite easily infer that it will feature two USB ports" This is probably because current model A has half of model B usb ports so...

Re: Model A specification arguments

VAT or sales tax varies by location - so why state many different prices, and of course schools can reclaim the vat portion, so do in fact get them for $25. Pi has always been primarily targetted at education after all. Indeed. When saying "You can't get it for $25" I thought about kids, parents, t...

. Let's say the extra cost for 512 is $2. That's 20% of the $10 you find so offensive already. You cannot argue for an increase in cost to get 512 and then claim offence when I suggest $10 gets you the more capable Model B (and not just memory). That's absurd. It is absolutely not absurd.
