Re: Quake 1 Port, Optimization Questions

Hi Welford, I'm having trouble when I build. The Pi is saying bcm.host.h doesn't exist. The build file contains the include in what appears to be the proper location. I cloned the current opt/vc file from the repository and confirmed that the file is there. Can't understand why it complains. Any ide...

Re: STICKY: Using a Gert VGA 666 adapter - [HOWTO]

If this is a hardware-related problem, why does it happen only on Raspbian Buster and/or RPi 4, and not on Raspbian Stretch / RPi 3? I don't know. Maybe they use a different drive strength for the GPIO or the Pi4 PCB has the tracks thinner and closer together. It can also be that there is more or d...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 usb boot?

You're replying to a 9-page thread on the subject, that was posted 4 days after the Pi 4's announcement. I highly doubt that you found the lack of native USB boot "surprising". I honestly did just get in the mail and try to get it going. I obviously should have checked online to find out what featu...

Sure, the reason has been stated, and it makes perfect sense, but that didn't stop me from spending some hours trying to boot from and SSD like my last pi did out-of-the-box. ;) I really hate to have to state this, but if you spent all that time trying to do USB boot with a Pi4B, it indicates that ...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 usb boot?

First of all, I wanted to say that I'm happy with all my pis. I had the first model in pre-order and every one since. I think that it's terrible that people are being rude and showing impatience. However, it's really just a sign that the pi in general is starting to reach a wider audience that you a...

Re: Ken's Labyrinth for linux

Re: Ken's Labyrinth for linux

Is there some kind of generic guide to building things on raspbian? No. Because there is no 'Rule' that defines how a developer must share their code.

low res desktop environment

Hi, I'm looking for a desktop environment for my pi when running on a 20" 4:3 monitor at 320x240 resolution. LXDE doesn't really support such a low resolution and is unusable.
Are there any desktops with low res support that would look like windows 3.x or similar?
