Re: Fedora remix + launch GUI = fail

<t>Hi all, I'm booting up the Fedora 14 remix in Qemu and if I select for it to boot into the GUI by default I can't log in. The problem is that the login screen does not see any keyboard input.<br/> <br/> Has anyone else seen this problem? If yes, have you fixed it and how? TIA!<br/> <br/> I'm a Li...

Re: Official image and QEMU?

<t>Unfortunately I don't have a Linux system that I can easily mount the partition.

So, if soneone can enlighten me I'd appreciate it!

Re: Running Raspberry Pi distributions on PC?

<r>It can be done with the Qemu emulator for windows. (I just got it to work today.) I'm using version 1.0.1, others may work but that is the latest.<br/> <br/> However, you need to add the -net none switch to the command starting Qemu. On my PC it was crashing when it tried to access the network ad...

Re: Official image and QEMU?

In my search for support I found version 1.0.1 precompiled for Windows.

Using that the system starts to boot but Qemu crashes part way through. Has anyone else tried this and gotten it to work?

But why don't you just load the image up using an emulator in Windows? There is no need to have an emulator within an emulator.


The problem is that I was unable to find the ARM emulator for WIndows. I only found x86 emulation.

Re: Official image and QEMU?

That is correct, I am THAT crazy to try that!

I don't have a machine that I am at liberty to load Linux on, so I wanted to give it a try this way. If it's not possible, I'll look into scrounging an older system to dedicate to being a Linux box.

Re: GERTBOARD Operation

<t>Just wondering how the GERTBOARD actually operates to run motors, etc. From what I read it does not look like it is directly using the Pi GPIO. I'm guessing this because of the inclusion of the PIC controller on the board.<br/> <br/> How dies the Pi communicate to the PIC? I'm wondering if an Ard...
