Re: Not Minecraft, but Blocky

This looks really neat. I don't suppose you've considered putting it on github, and hopefully choosing a Free Software license so others can freely make and share modifications? Personally I'm a fan of the MIT license http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_License

Re: New stable firmware update

I have done the update. rebooted. All ok. I ran raspi-config and dropped the GPU mem to 16. Before: Absolutely stable headless rpi. After: does NOT boot properly. I will be setting the GPU back to 64meg. Any chance that the other people with difficulties also had their memory set to 16? Same here -...

Re: New stable firmware update

So is there any difference between running the commands given by asb, and running rpi-update? This method seems to be easier for someone who doesn't have rpi-update already installed. I think it is, from what I know I think rpi-update lets you update your firmware before it is stable, right? So sin...

Re: New stable firmware update

I'd recreate the FAT partition. Do you have a Linux machine? If so I'd first make sure the FAT partition is unmounted, then: sudo mkdosfs -S 512 -s 16 -v /dev/SD_CARD_PART1 # e.g. /dev/sdb1 for me Then you can mount that partition and copy fresh files in to it (for convenience, you can untar the con...

Re: New stable firmware update

You do seem to be running in to corruption on your FAT partition. A while back there were some issues with occasional FS corruption on the FAT partition. How long has this image been in use - is it one you've updated multiple times? It may well be there was some existing corruption which caused the ...

New stable firmware update

Hi all. I updated the stable apt source with repackaged firmware which provides support for arbitrary memory splits on the new 512M boards. Sorry for the delay there. You should be able to upgrade with: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install raspi-config libraspberrypi* We no longer need a whol...

We're hoping to work with Digia and/or the wider Qt community to get Raspberry Pi Qt5 builds that can easily be installed on Raspbian. In the mean time, check ...

Sorry about that folks, I messed up an update. If you updated, please do sudo apt-get update and then

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-get install {libraspberrypi-bin,libraspberrypi-dev,libraspberrypi-doc,libraspberrypi0,raspberrypi-bootloader}=1.20120918-1
