Re: XSP4 (Mono) on RPI

Thanks for the insight, that helps me understand what's going on.

The bug report has a link to the patch, but the link is dead. Do you know where the patch can be found, and how it would be applied?

("mono --version" shows 2.10.11 for me, so I guess a 2.x patch would be OK.)

Thanks again,
- Joe

Re: New wiki page on C#

I didn't include anything about the hard/soft float issue because, frankly, I don't understand it yet. I hope to invest some time in the next few days coming to grips with it, but if you already know what it's all about, a wiki page on it would be extremely helpful. I don't think this is just a Mono...

Re: XSP4 (Mono) on RPI

I'm still trying to wrap my head around this hard/soft float issue. I've seen it mentioned several times, but haven't really dug into it.

Can you give me a simple test to see whether my distro suffers from the problem?

Are there any good references for this issue?

Thanks,

New wiki page on C#

Hi all,

I've started a page on the elinux wiki about using C# on the Raspberry Pi:

http://elinux.org/CSharp_on_RPi

I know there are others here who know more about it than I do — please contribute what you can!

Thanks,

Re: MonoGame on Raspberry Pi...

I know this is an old thread, but I thought it deserved a kick. :) I'm just recently starting to really play with my Raspberry Pi, and thinking of all the educational value it would have for my boys (ages 8 and 12). I'm thinking of helping them each build their own setup. I'm also thinking that C# i...

Re: MonoDevelop C# on RPI (or Visual Studio for Linux)

I'd just like to share my excitement — I installed mono-complete on my Raspian (1st-generation) RPi yesterday, and it appears to work great! I quickly got it talking to the serial port, and will have it driving around robots as soon as my level shifter arrives. I personally don't care much about Mon...

Re: best approach to MAME performance

2. Stick with old versions of MAME/Non-MAME code. MAME is known for sacrificing any and all performance in the name of accuracy. While this isn't a problem on most desktop PCs, it is rapidly becoming a big problem on the RasPi. Our best bet here would be looking at GP2X/Pandora/Android/iPhone ports...

best approach to MAME performance

There seems to be a lot of interest in getting MAME working on the RPi — I'm in this camp myself, with a beautiful mini cabinet already built and just waiting for a brain. My RPi just arrived, and booted for the first time yesterday, so now I'm rarin' to go! But there are a lot of different MAME bui...

Re: Which interface will be easiest to access (GPIO, SPI, I2C, UART)

OK, sounds great. Now I just hope we get that UART brought out to pads/holes somewhere on the board. Serial makes it easy to interface with nearly anything, and enables all sorts of uses of RPi as a super-powerful, low-cost embedded controller!
