Re: Concern re "surprise" overclock & warranty implications

As far as I'm aware, overclocking doesn't void your warranty. Overvolting however, will.

The reason I added that in there is because I noticed that the first Arch image offered over at the Raspberry Pi blog also had an overclock by default. In order to make comparisons fair, I copied this overclock.

Re: R-Pi as a component in a commercially sold product?

Whilst there's nothing stopping you from shipping products containing the Raspberry Pi hardware, you'll might want to pay close attention to the licenses of any software you ship quite closely.

Re: Getting past TSA in the USA

I travelled into the US with three Pis without much issue. I also took my Berrybook (lapdock modified to dock a Pi directly) to DEF CON and TSA in SFO and LAS didn't care about it at all. You should be fine.

Re: Chromium for Raspberry Pi BETA

Hexxeh, this is really awesome. Thanks for your hard work on bringing Chromium to the RPi. Is there any chance that you'll publish how you built the custom Chromium binary? Maybe just some tips or pointers? I'm building an HTML 5 game console based on your Chromium builds. I'd love to learn from yo...

Re: Raspberry Jams - Silicon Valley

I don't have anything like monitors or bulky stuff since I'm here for an internship and travelling fairly light, but I do have a few Pi's with me I can bring along if we can source displays for them. They're not running anything very interesting other than my Chromium stuff, though.

Re: Chromium for Raspberry Pi BETA

Does "--ignore-gpu-blacklist --use-gl=egl" have any effect? The bcm_host_init stuff isn't in place, so nope, sadly not. There are a few ways the lack of accel could be handled, we could hack Chromium to pieces adding in dispman support (which is what I've been trying to do and had little luck). Alt...

Don't install it as root, and don't run it as root. Running web browsers as root is a bad idea. Don't do that.

I'm happy to announce that Chromium binaries are now available for you to download and try out. These will ONLY work on Raspbian images, if you're running Squeeze or anything that isn't hardfp, don't even think about it. Whilst it's not required, using the 224MB memory split, overclocking your Pi an...

Re: Web browsing speed on Raspberry Pi

Actually, stuff like AdBlock chews memory, because of the way in which it's implemented. Blocking stuff via hosts file is probably a faster approach, but allows less control.

It's worth noting that whilst nobody at Broadcom is working directly on X drivers, folks like dom are helping where they can with knowledge. I know teh_orph has had help in getting his implementation working.
