Re: Wearout Prevention of SD card memory

I think the swappiness is set very low to prevent high sd wear.

If your RPi needs to do a very high amount of read/writes you might want to consider putting the root filesystem on a USB HDD

Re: Need help with compiling C++ code for Pi

I only glanced at the code and the program, but it appears to be pretty small. It might not be worth setting up a cross compile chain to get this compiled. You could just download the sources on your RPi and run the bash script: "makeall.sh". Which is included with the code. This should produce a bi...

Re: Raspberry Pi - best trojan horse ever?

Can't compete with open systems? What kind of open systems are you referring to? Furthermore, the RPi is not a broadcom product. It is more of a hobby project by some people who work at broadcom. This made it convenient to use their chip. The raspberry pi is not some evil plan by broadcom to kill ev...

Re: Raspberry PI and Logmein Hamachi

If hamachi has a deamon you could autostart that. Look for debian deamon on google to find the wiki page on that.

If there is no deamon you could add it to /etc/rc.local to autostart it.

Re: How to upgrade to newest Raspbian and Turbo Mode???

I think you have to add the temp widget to the LXDE bar manually to have it show.
So it might be installed, but not yet showing.

Same might go for the smartsim program. It might not create a desktop shortcut by default.

Re: Help needed to compile gkfreq, please

I think that function reads the timestamp counter on a X86 machine.
As the previous poster mentions, this will not work on the RPi (or any arm machine).

I agree with trying to comment it out and trying to compile.

Re: Making an Image file

AFAIK this will copy the entire image, including the empty space.
Therefor an image with 4 gb of files and 150 gb of empty space results in a 154 gb image file.

Re: What should you set your Pi too in "Turbo Mode"?

Honestly I wouldn't worry so much. Just back up your stuff and test what works.:D In most cases your RPi will just not boot with the higher setting. If this is the case just pop the SD card in a different PC and change the config.txt and it'll work as normal In the worst case your SD card might get ...

Yep the firmware is on the SD card. I do not know why you are getting the cannot change permissions error... Does your user have permission to use sudo? That said, you do not really need to use rpi-update. rpi-update gets you the very latest firmware and kernel. apt-get dist-upgrade gets you a sligh...

You can buy codecs in the raspberry pi store (see the homepage). You just add a small piece of code to the config.txt in your fat32 partition on your SD card to enable them. AFAIK you do not actually change the codecs, you just enable them. Don't really understand your last question. All your softwa...

Arch is very minimal. Everything you want on your arch install, you install yourself. That said, Raspbian does have a WM/DE isntalled, however it boots to CLI by default. In this case the only downside of having them installed is the relatively small amount of HDD / SD card memory use. There is also...
