Re: Minecraft Server 512mb Model B

Re: Minecraft Server 512mb Model B

On the 256 MB Raspberry Pi I have got a vanilla Minecraft server up and running with the bare minimum - and a preloaded world. The issues with it are it's too slow (CPU) and cannot read/write to the file syst...

Re: Is there any Satnav software available ?

I have just installed Navit directly on the hard float wheezy Raspbian OS.
It works except for some glitching with the map data files (needs checking what can be used / not used).
Should work a treat! ... not to frigg my old tom tom touch screen as a display!

Re: Custom Package Index for RPi

<t>Either way someone has to manage a list of packages.
