Overclock PI B+ using Pidora

Sun Feb 22, 2015 11:16 pm

On Model B+

Pidora seems to run pretty slow. I have modified the config.txt
file as follows (see at the bottom) and it does not seem to be doing anything. Is this OK?

# Raspberry Pi configuration file
#
# Composite video mode: Disabled (HDMI output)
# Composite aspect ratio: Disabled
# Overscan: Disabled (image is full scan area)
# HDMI resolution: From EDID
# HDMI sound: Enabled
#
# Text fields for firstboot module follow:
#
#Title: HDMI only, no overscan
#Desc: HDMI output only. Picture may go off the edge of some screens.
#
hdmi_force_hotplug=1
disable_overscan=1
hdmi_drive=2

start_file=start_x.elf
fixup_file=fixup_x.elf
#gpu_mem=128

#Overclock
arm_freq=1000
core_freq=500
sdram_freq=600
over_voltage=6

The config.txt seemed correct.
but the firmware (bootcode.bin, start.elf) came with Pidora 20 may have some issues with some of the configurations. at least when I last used it.
you can manually update the firmware by copying the files over from github (https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware)

Return to “Pidora / Fedora”
