ArchArm is installed and running. Useing the Window Maker desktop and Midori web browser. All output to a 14 year old Bush analogue tv.

Text and graphics look pretty good and it seems taht web surfing is just a bit slower than on my home pc.

Actually a deck of cards would be more like it. The Pi would definitely fit into a box made for a deck of playing cards.

Peachy, I'm enjoying your pi pictures.

I browsed at a few others besides yours and this guy has the right idea. Wear the computer around your neck!

At Games Britannia in Sheffield today we announced the launch of our first programming contest for children and young people. Eventually, we plan to run contests of this sort on a weekly basis, but this one will run for eight weeks, to coincide with the school summer holidays in the northern hemisphere.

Quick summary:

  • Two age categories, 13 and under, and 14 to 18.
  • A $1,000 first prize and five $200 runner-up prizes in each category.
  • The aim is simple: we want you to impress the judges with a piece of software you’ve written for the Raspberry Pi.

If you don’t already have a Raspberry Pi, you can still enter – just use one of the publicly available emulator platforms. (More details on all of this in a later post!)

Maybe I should have been more specific. I meant actually used one on the Arch Arm as used on the Pi.

 

Tried Parole and Gogglesmm both load but will not play music. Have not got the time or inclination to learn about cli players. I may have to but am looking for a quick fix. Preferably a very lightweight one.

 

:shifty:

 

Are you cooking right now by the way ? :shifty:

Perhaps the good ole tried and true xmms. It is very lightweight and it works just fine.

 

No I am not at work right now but I go in a few hours.

Great news. A new SD image for the Pi was released: http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/1605

 

This is based on the work of the Raspian project and has the hardware-float optimizations.

Raspbian “wheezy”

 

If you’re just starting out, this is the image we recommend you use. It’s a reference root filesystem from Alex and Dom, based on the Raspbian optimised version of Debian, and containing LXDE, Midori, development tools and example source code for multimedia functions.

 

Very cool Peachy! :thumbsup:

A Raspberry Pi computer has boldly gone where no other Pi has gone before.

High-altitude ballooning enthusiast Dave Akerman tethered one, complete with a webcam to photograph its progress, to a helium balloon.

The bare-bones computer managed to reach an altitude of almost 25 miles (40km) before the balloon popped and it returned to Earth.

The Pi sent live images throughout the flight and was safely retrieved by tracking its onboard radio transmitter.

In Arch Arm moc works really well with a nice clear sound from the audio jack. I'm using a Class 10 card with a few overclock tweaks and I must say the little old Pi runs quite sweetly.

On Arch Arm Parole player plays .mp3 files and outputs ound from .avi and .flv video files. Just need to get some moving pictures now. The sound is clear and crisp with non of the crackling mentioned in th Pi forums. Mind you that is in Arch so it is no suprise. :whistling:

Running Raspbian "Wheezy" official build now. WiFi working once I found an updated driver. ssh server on and omxplayer installed by default. Played an .mp4 over the WiFi from a Samba share. Wow! Amazing video quality over HDMI (1080p). The hardware-float build is amazingly fast. I tried overclocking this thing but could never get it to boot stably.
