Re: Can I use 2 of these on the Compute?

The firmware driver doesn't support it - sadly it is currently hard coded as using the DISP1 interface as that is what is used on the regular Pi models, and I know the driver isn't currently in a form that can be instantiated twice. That's a real shame. Upon initial reflection, this seems to basica...

Can I use 2 of these on the Compute?

Presumably so, but is it supported in Raspbian? I've attempted to search for this topic, I've not found anything conclusive unfortunately, perhaps I am not using the correct search terms. I'm wanting to use two of the displays for the DSI ports (as per the dev board breakout for the compute module)....

Re: Raspberry Pi 2 v1.1 versus v1.2 Changes

In my opinion the main difference between Pi 2 and Pi 3 is not the SOC, but the fact that the hardware serial on the Pi 3 is connected to the WiFi/Bluetooth and therefore not available on the GPIO pins. Continuing to supply the Pi 2, albeit with a slightly different processor, shows great support b...

Needing to know the knowledge of finding a wiki page which isn't necessarily associated with any documentation you receive when you buy the product, and so even after searching on Google, you don't know that it's official in any capacity, requires re-assuring.

I can't even find any official mention about a revised RPi2 board honestly .... The new board is considered to be a "point release" and no announcement was made. This has led to some confusion and occasional alarm by people caught unprepared and using old system images. As a product which is embedd...

Pinmuxing

Would it ever be possible for a future version of the Raspberry Pi to use PinMuxing, either for the GPIO or for the CSI/DSI ports? Eg. you can switch the DSI port to be CSI so you'd have two camera ports on the board, or two DSI ports.

Or to be able to reconfigure the GPIO pins?

Your interest in understanding Video Core, not in playing Quake3? Both, more so the former and why what I was doing was kernel panicking, as I said. As others have said you can have a very playable Q3 (typically 90fps) on Pi2 without special kernel modules. I've managed to get a solid 125fps from i...
