What's the different between that and setting affinity in the task manager?

You can launch with an affinity already set. Also, you can automate it via batch file/shortcut.

Re: Emulating a RasPi on Windows

Funny behaviors galore: I see no peers connected to the LXDE torrent, none whatsoever. Maybe it's time I took you advice and concentrate on seeding Gnome :P

I'm online and seeding... It's gosh-darn slow, blame it on my ISP, but I have 100% of both files on constant seed.

Re: Simulator/Emulator for Raspberry Pi?

<t>I'm all for Gnome, despite the extra requirements... It's a lot easier to use, and the emulation won't let either run too quick anyways. I do, of course, have an LXDE install handy, 'cause that's what we're gonna get in the end, but insofar as software testing goes, I'm doing it all on Gnome (wha...

Re: Emulating a RasPi on Windows

Sorry 'bout that, I think my ISP is traffic-shaping my fibre connection... It's seeding oh-so-slow, and when I go to sleep and leave only uTorrent on to seed, it disconnects me :/

Re: Emulating a RasPi on Windows

<t>@Efcis: LXDE takes about 2.5GB (Base system + Desktop environment). A full Gnome install took me 4GB. Both installs are using 8GB image files, so I'm just discounting declared free space. It might be they take a little more space to complete (depends on temp file usage, etc.)<br/> <br/> Edit: Now...

Now that it's working (well, installing) can I complain that it's too slow ?

It took me about 2 hours each (I did three full installs and had a truckload of duds) on my Athlon X2. Yeah, It takes forever.

If cars were like Microsoft Windows, the correct troubleshooting routine for a stalled engine would be to get out of the car, go around it kicking tires then get back inside and turn the key.
