Re: How do I upgrade an RPi RISC OS installation?

I.e. does "Shift double clicking" (to display rather than run application directories) mean anything to you? I learned this functionality earlier today, funnily enough, though not the term itself. Do you know your way around the Configuration window? Etcetera... If I ask "What Configuration window?...

And it's not - by commercial outfits who specifically cater to it. The Raspberry Pi Foundation is an education-focussed charity, not an organisation to be leveraged in order to obtain cheap gear unsuited to their actual goals. ;)

Re: How do I upgrade an RPi RISC OS installation?

Historically, RISC OS has never had package management. Installing software on RISC OS has always been a matter of dragging an application directory from a zip to a suitable location on the drive. This is one thing I've quickly learned. I figured that the whole package management thing was retrofit...

How do I upgrade an RPi RISC OS installation?

I've done a search for this, both on the forums and on the wider internet, but haven't been able to find anything relating to what I would like to learn, or any firm advice on it. My question is this: How does one update an existing Raspberry Pi RISC OS installation to use the newest RISC OS RPi ROM...

Re: No access to internet via wireless

You can get around RISC OS' current lack of wireless support by using one of these - it's an Edimax BR-6258N Nano router, which can act as a router proper, or as a wireless client to connect to your existing router. As nr. notes, it is a little bit of a bodge, but it's a compact-enough device to ren...

Re: Windows to pi

Guys, I know that it's commonplace to us, but my experience is that package managers are a completely alien concept to a great many who are more familiar with Microsoft Windows.

Re: Is it just me? - Rpi problems

Re: Windows Compatiability

I'll just throw in: Windows RT runs natively on ARM, as does Windows Phone. Neither run on the Pi, but may be hacked into shape to do so at some point ... This simply muddies the waters, however, as ultimately these are just incompatible operating systems that happen to be branded with the name "Mi...

Re: Raspberry pi has stopped working as i put 6v through it.

I'm guessing (from what little I know of such things* ) that this may bypass it, hence the warning. Just a guess, though, and very likely wrong (though not without some logic behind it). *I know that some folks used to overclock particular ARM-based PDAs by bridging two points on the PCB with pencil...

Re: Nintendo 64 Emulation?

N64 emulation is not full-speed even on the more-powerful (ARMv7) Pandora (as mentioned in the above-linked thread). As Abishur says, I imagine it is beyond the RPi's capabilities. It's worth noting that the above-linked thread only mentions getting Super Mario 64 playable, with some work. Getting o...

I don't use MAME myself, but I have heard from others that it tends to be picky about what ROM sets it accepts. Perhaps you should try a different .zip? This is correct. Specifically, essentially, each version of MAME tends to require different ROM-sets. So, for example, if the version of MAME in R...
