Re: RISCOS & RPiZero screen issues...

Thank you both - very helpful! I'll be trying those suggestions. btw I noticed that Linux Mint doesn't mount the RiscOS image after it's been created but another OS I used does mount the FAT partition so I've been able to view and otherwise mess around with the files on that partition - backing up a...

RISCOS & RPiZero screen issues...

The RiscOS SD card image I found was compiled by a forum user. Is there an actual official image provided by (?) for the PiZero? The mouse pointer appears outside of the desktop area but still not to the top-leftest of my display. http://i64.tinypic.com/qo9b2f.jpg Same again but for lower-rightest o...

Re: Subscription confirmation

Good news, everybody! My order actually did go through - at least, if my credit card statement is anything to go by.

Thanks again for the helpful feedback.

Subscription confirmation

Yesterday, I ordered a three month MagPi subscription but there hasn't been a confirmation email yet. How long does that usually take?

btw I'm really looking forward to finally getting my hands on a Pi. :D

Re: What do people want to do that the rpi currently cannot

The thing about the BCM2835 and its closed source nature is that *all* the Pi OSes interface to that closed source driver or it's no-soup-for-you. I swear I've read the point of view you just offered re: everything is closed source elsewhere... http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.os.openbsd.misc/219675 ...

Re: What do people want to do that the rpi currently cannot

Aside from the notorious difficulty of making an OTG USB host behave like the typical desktop equivalent, the OpenBSD developers have no motivation to support hardware that only works with unknown, undocumented drivers due to the imposibility of being able to maintain credible security in such an en...

Re: What do people want to do that the rpi currently cannot

@Heater You get 'em in a twist over 'open' and 'munted' and then you say you want 'revolutionary' as if that clarifies anything? Interesting... Do I have to know of a better SoC to be aware of the issues with the current one? But ok... In this context, 'more open' would mean better, more complete do...

Re: What do people want to do that the rpi currently cannot

I want to load lots of data really quickly. I want a full speed (m)sata connector on the next Pi. And if that means ditching the current SoC, all the better. Please use a less munted, more open SoC. 2x hdmi would also be a good move. Other than that, I think the choices made in the current Pi offeri...

Re: Interest in HaikuOS / BeOS ?

I don't see that porting work for various low level components, such as the ARM kernel, should be put off until completion of the x86 beta release - nor that it would be counter productive.

Interest in HaikuOS / BeOS ?

How many RPi users would like to try HaikuOS (formerly BeOS) if it was ported to this platform? Early porting efforts have begun: https://www.haiku-os.org/guides/building/port_status and I want to encourage more progress by offering a bounty - which I have posted about here: https://www.raspberrypi....

Initial boot environment / boot-strapping a kernel

Are there any guides or other information about the precise series of events for any RPi system from power-on to kernel loaded and ready for further input?

Raspberry Pi / ARM porting bounty

Even prior to the recent release of the PiZero, the Raspberry Pi has been an obvious candidate for HaikuOS to support but development within the Haiku community is spread too thin so I want to offer an incentive for qualified help from without. My first problem is that I don't even know who the lead...
