Re: Enlightenment running under Arch - chuffed!

Excellent stuff, I think the DirectFB guys are working on something similar, but obviously using DirectFB instead of X which would then be accelerated by the GPU.

keep up the good work!

Re: X.org driver and GPU in general

Sorry to bring back an old post, but was there any progression with this? Getting an accelerated desktop would be pretty handy! (running at 1080p on the framebuffer is nasty to say the least...)

Re: Running programs off a USB memory stick

The latest version of Debian automounted a USB flash drive I inserted into my Pi when using LXDE (not sure if it would do this when at command line)

Re: Any sucess with iphone screns??

That's good news, the project I have in mind for my Pi would ideally use a MIPI panel driven off the DSI connector. I'm just hoping a panel of the right size will be available (around 4", though the iPhone screen would be ideal)

Re: Quake 2 (source included)

Anyone fancy porting Quake 2 to the RasPi? I've found source for the GP2X version (Linux based with OpenGL ES) here:

pickle.gp2x.de/source/yamagi_quake2_src.zip

I'll make a shameful attempt once I get my Pi but thought someone else wouldn't mind giving it a go?

<t>Seems about right to me, remember you're running your code on a single core 700mhz ultra low-power CPU (which they compare to a 300mhz Pentium II), not a dual/quad-core 64bit desktop-class CPU.
