Re: PWM for servos, motors, and LEDs plus.

Hello joan, This library looks very cool. I would like to write a wrapper unit in pascal. I have done this before with Gorden's WiringPi library. In order to do this from pascal, I need an .o file of the library, which I can then link to from pascal code. As far as I can tell, there is no way to com...

Re: Lazarus didn't run proper?

Hello Bernd, I had the same problem. It seems this problem is related to insufficient memory. Try using arm224_start.elf. Also, you must setup a swap file at least 256MB. When you compile Lazarus, you could use "make clean all" instead of "make clean bigide" the later one, needs more resources on li...

Re: free pascal / lazarus GPIO

Hello, I just got the precompiled fpc binaries from the freepascal website and then compiled Lazarus from source. Have XFCE4, fpc 2.6 and Lazarus running on Archlinux. Also wrote a wrapper class for Gordon Henderson's wiringPi C library which allows access to the GPIO pins and PWM output from Freepa...

Re: RAM amount

Thanks!

Thanks!

RAM amount

Hello,

just got my Pi. This is just to much fun!
When I run mem, the total amount of Memory shows as 123596. Should't this be around 256000? Do I have a lemon or is this a configuration issue?

Thanks!
