Re: Pi-themed x86 Debian Wheezy distro

I found the Debian Wheezy weekly builds page, including a Wheezy with LXDE for x86 (32-bit), which is pretty close to an x86 equivalent of the R.Pi Debian/Raspbian Wheezy setup.

Re: Dialup server

Link: Debian guide to dial-up modem configuration. (Disclaimer: very old!)

I'm not sure about the Raspberry Pi specifics, but much of this should pertain to Raspbian as with any Debian derivative. You'll be using a USB instead of old-school serial modem though, so a lot of this won't apply.

Pi-themed x86 Debian Wheezy distro

I noticed the official Raspberry Pi downloads page has two very similar distros of Debian Wheezy, the ARMv6HF-optimised Raspbian and the official ARMv6EL Raspbian, featuring LXDE, Midori, Scratch, Python and other pre-loaded features. So we have the same Raspberry Pi-themed Debian/Raspbian setup for...

RISC OS Pi port of XAMOS?

I'm wondering if RISC OS Pi would be well-served by a port of XAMOS ? XAMOS is an early alpha reimplementation of AMOS BASIC from the Amiga, utilising SDL libraries and implemented in C++. It includes support for Amiga-style screens, bobs, sprites and rainbows using SDL, a mostly-complete interprete...

Re: Simon's accelerated X development thread

Hi, have the open-sourced Broadcom drivers proved useful for this project?

I would love to see a hardware-accelerated Raspbian LXDE environment one day with faster graphics rendering, it would make the Raspberry Pi much more usable overall. Any progress on this project?

Re: Forget Windows 8, here's Windows 95!

Did you compile E-UAE yourself? I've been thinking about getting FS-UAE working, but it needs OpenGL and fails to compile with OpenGL ES :-( Yes, E-UAE is fairly easy to build from source. There are several other versions of UAE which would work on the Raspberry Pi. Most likely FS-UAE and PUAE will...

Re: List of open source games that can be ported to the R-Pi

ScummVM is available for Raspbian and can play many old-school 2D point-and-click adventure games. Some of these have been re-released as freeware (e.g. Beneath A Steel Sky, Flight of the Amazon Queen).

Re: Ubuntu on Raspberry Pi

Although a "Raspbuntu" would be nice, in practice a more lightweight Linux distro will be more usable. I'm not a fan of Unity, but I do wonder how it could perform on the Pi given full hardware acceleration (and with hardware-accelerated X drivers, etc.). I'm thinking "poorly", though.

Re: Forget Windows 8, here's Windows 95!

Anything XP-based will be much too slow. It struggles with Windows 95 as it is.

Try emulating something more lightweight, like Amiga Workbench:
