grep -i "Hardware" /proc/cpuinfo | sort

or
cat /proc/fb

Re: Games on "Cartridges"

This would be pretty easy, All you'd have todo is add a script to load on system boot,
say sdcard/run.sh, and then launch the game from there

Re: Crosscompiling for RaspPi - Explained

This is dark voodoo. I get how chroot works, and I get that the gcc on the mounted partition will target ARM architecture, but that gcc is an ARM binary. I wouldn't have thought it would run on an x86 host? By copying qemu-arm-static into the /usr/bin of the chroot this will magically just work? If...

Crosscompiling for RaspPi - Explained

Compiling big projects is very time-consuming on the raspberry pi. Wouldn't it be great if we could compile our files on a seperate computer and make the changes to the SD Card immediatelly?Normally we'd just mount a remote disk, and chroot into it. The problem is, that the Raspberry PI is an ARM Sy...
