I thing he works on this in hist spare time, so if that is the case is unlikely to have been given a deadline. In fact if that is the case deadlines at work will impact negatively as they may reduce the free time available to work on this.mic34 wrote:It has been said that Gordon is a Broadcom employee, so surely they must have given him a deadline for this task?Kemp wrote: From reading the rest of this thread, it appears that Broadcom have no interest in fixing their problems and the foundation doesn't have the manpower to give you a deadline.

I have not been able to reproduce this problem between Raspbian and a Ubuntu system. (No XP system at the moment) 2+Gig file back and forth several times on a wired network, diffed each time with and without X.Sandgrounder wrote:OK - sorry. I should have added more details.
The build is the Rasbian build as supplied by Farnell two weeks ago ....
.... but I have run apt-get update and apt-get upgrade a number of times including today.
It is the Pi which crashes when the file is partly transfered. There is room on both sticks. I tried it on two Pis - both 512M from Farnel two weeks ago.
Since my last post, I have thought of a work around, which is to use raspi-config to extend the root partition to the full 16Gbyte avalable on the CD card and to FTP the file to that. (worked first time). I can also copy the 2Gbyte file from the SD card to the USB memory sticks with no problems. It is when I try to use the wired Network and the USB stick at the same time that Raspbian falls over.
I will leave you alone to discuss the USB problem, unless you want to tell me where I might find any log information. I can not see anyting in /var/log/messages but I am not sure what to look for.
Heh It is a killer little board... I have 3rd Pi coming in a few weeks. Hope there isn't a duff batch of 512M boards out there...thradtke wrote:If you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth: The Pi itself is the killer.MaxK1 wrote:So, what other differences?
Were you actually writing the stuff to the USB drive (or was it in fairly consistent operation?) Seeing as how the USB and Ethernet both share a single USB 2.0 port on the SoC, it's possible that the bandwidth is maxing out (amongst a hundred other possibilities )MorePiPlease wrote:This thread is quite long and I have read most of it. I am glad you all were hacking your RPi last night, just as i was. I had an extreme bit of difficulty with my RPi using Motion and a QC usb webcam. I thought for hours it was my configuration. Finally it dawned on me that it was a performance issue.
I was running it headless, with just SSH and I had a usb thumbdrive plugged into my RPi and the QC.
The odd bit was, of course, that the CPU was barely being taxed. Motion would just stop working. It might work for a few moments if I restarted the RPi or stopped and started Motion.
Then i tried turning off the video and leaving just snapshots and it worked much better but still would crash after a while.
Is an interrupt problem or perhaps a buffer problem? I am going to try unplugging the USB thumb drive tonight to see if that helps.
What kind of resolutions and frame rates have you tested with motion? Does it run without errors for longer time periods?MorePiPlease wrote:Performance of Motion is noticeably faster and appears stable (or at least is not crashing randomly after 3-15 seconds as it was)...I have had it running for 5 minutes which was unthinkable last night. Going to kill it and tweak it cause that is how we roll.
