Re: Tiny Core Linux

TinyCore from what I remember was designed for PC's of the 90's to give them new life.I doubt they have ARM in mind for a port.

Re: School local

His school does not have Wi-FI, it sounds like he is wanting to have the R-PI as a Wi-FI hotspot to create a WLAN.

Re: Specific Software Test Project

This is testing not porting. So its a case of if the software fails to work, it fails to work. But if it does then a summary of what we encountered did not work.

Re: Dual monitor

I think Dual Monitoring is trying to push the R-Pi beyond what its capable of. Usualy for a Dual Monitor config you need a dedicated Graphics card with mutliple ports. Thats too much for our litle APU

Re: R-Pi as a media player?

Theres no real reason why XBMC should not work, and if it is so power hungry than thats probably down to a poorly coded XBMC, remember how R-Pi is supposed to help teach efficient coding??

Re: Specific Software Test Cases

Indeed, shall we list what we intent to test??

I think the first program I would test in all honsety would be XBMC as I am sure to want one as a Mini Media Centre. Its good already on linux but it all depends on the underlying OS and what modules / librarys are available.
