Re: CSUD - Chadderz's Simple USB Driver (Source)

I have wondered how long it might take for someone to build upon CSUD enough to hook up the lwIP stack to the smsc9512 ethernet. That would be just a little bit cool.

Re: Wifi issue - wpasupplicant installed?

So do I need to do anything to activate it, or should it already be in place? If this isn't the problem then I guess I have to look elsewhere (maybe try a static IP assignment, or temporarily switch over to WEP). Just a thought - could it be a power issue? The dongle is pulling its power straight f...

Re: Wifi issue - wpasupplicant installed?

wpasupplicant and various USB wifi firmwares actually are part of the current Foundation Raspbian image. The main missing thing is a nice UI included to configure that connection. The next image release will have this, plus we've finally pulled in the out of tree RTL8188CUS module.

Re: Today's upgrade - reboot required?

Looks to me like all the raspberrypi-bootloader package does is add in the latest fw builds, while retaining the 3.1.9+ base kernel builds(if any) while rpi-update has the latest fw build + the 3.2.27+ kernel. No, raspberrypi-bootloader now has 3.2.27. It's just updated fairly irregularly. For a mo...

How about adding some sort of PPPoE-configuration? It is very annoying to not be able to connect internet even though you have the connection available.

Re: USB - the Elephant in our Room

FIQ patch is pushed. Get it from rpi-update. It is disabled by default, but add: dwc_otg.fiq_fix_enable=1 to cmdline.txt to test. It should give about 10% extra performance to ARM when USB is not busy. It shouldn't change behaviour of USB. Or just via apt http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic...

Re: New repository component for bleeding-edge firmware

I've updated again. In fact, I've just rolled out the latest kernel to stable too (there have been surprisingly few problems reported despite the large changes of moving to 3.2.x, updating dwc_otg and introducing various fixes).

Well - its the displaying of the scores variables that's eating the CPU even with the scripts stopped. Stop displaying them and the CPU load drops to normal Scratch idle levels -so at least you can edit it now. It plays slowly but at least it plays - we need to check Scratch out on other platforms ...
