Re: What is the best internet browser experience ?

With midori on my overclocked pi (1ghz) with a fast sd card (sandisk extreme 45 mbps) the internet browsing experience is far better then I thought it would be.
That said, I will be switching to chromium as soon as it will be available on wheezy. Partially for html5.

Re: List of wireless devices?

One thing to add, ndiswrapper is a wrapper for windows x86 drivers for x86 linux.
As the RPi is arm, ndiswrapper will not work.

Re: wifi "Roaming"

WICD gives you an easy way to choose which networks to connect to.

It might do roaming aggressiveness as well, but I don't know.

Re: Help test the next Debian image (wheezy)

Will chromium be ported while still in testing or will that happen after it goes stable?

I ask because it is the one thing missing from this distribution and seeing as many people are both recommended to use chromium and this beta, this might lead to confusion.

Re: D-Link DWA-121 usb wifi not working?

Wicd is easy to use and gives you a GUI.

I'd try Debian wheezy first as it seems to work much better out of the box.

Thank you very much for this.
Installed this and worked straight away (on fairly standard wheezy).

Re: Would Debian "squeeze" work on PC

Yes,
You can run Debian on your PC, however not the exact image as distributed for the Pi. The Pi runs on ARM hardware. Your PC runs on x86.

Debian does images for both and I believe you can try one from a USB drive. Have a look at:

Re: Help test the next Debian image (wheezy)

sudo apt-get update gets the updates from the debian repositories.

rpi-update is a script written by Hexxeh to get the latest firmware from github.

Re: Error -110

This appears to be a bug in the latest updated wheezy, as it is reported by more running updated wheezy.
I assume it will be fixed quickly.

A PC or a Mac has a software controlled power switch, so the machine can turn itself off.
The Raspberry Pi does NOT have a software controlled switch, so you have to remove the power yourself.
Indeed, Linux on x86 will also power down.

Re: No picture on HDMI

Did you also try:

config_hdmi_boost configure the signal strength of the HDMI interface. Default is 0. Try 4 if you have interference issues with hdmi. 7 is the maximum.

Re: Who needs GPU RAM? - Complete Pi server

No,
The source for the start.elf will not be opened as it is property of Broadcom.
It wouldn't do you much good anyway. The GPU handles the boot process and needs ram to do this, which is why 224 is the highest split.

I have not tried openElec.

It worked without installing any other packages.
