When is Raspberri Pi kernel source updated?

Hi all, I am trying to understand how and when the kernel sources for the Raspberry Pi are updated. Currently the version for the kernel sources on github is 3.1.9. But when are software patches applied for this kernel, or when will a new kernel release become available? So far, I understood that th...

Re: Losing enjoyment in programming

<t>I know what you mean. Also having kids mean you don't have much time for your hobbies anymore. But that's not the only reason, it looks that todays programming is using API's and other libraries, getting more and more away from the real hardware. That's the reason I Linux so much, still having co...

Re: Easy GPIO Hardware & Software

<t>I agree that a simple LED and push button with some basic IO examples in multiple programming languages could get people up to speed. In fact, if the Raspberry Pi wants to become succesful it is imperative that there is good documentation available besides a low price.<br/> <br/> If I have the ti...

Has it already been confirmed which kernel will be used at the launch? Is that 2.6.35?

Re: A real situation

But I guess he has a TV? So the composite output of the Raspberry Pi can be used.
Using a 12V to 220V adapter he can use some car batteries.

Re: Easy GPIO Hardware & Software

<r>Well, there are several ways to access GPIO.<br/> 1. Using the driver, in this case you can access GPIO from /sys/class/gpio/ for example or use the gpiolib framework.<br/> 2. Connect to the IO (memory) address directly like this example in C:<br/> gpio = mmap(0, getpagesize(), PROT_READ|PROT_WRI...

Concerning question 4, I would like to know that too...

Re: The equivalent of four UARTs

You could use USB to RS232 convertors. They cost between $3-20 USD. Try using the convertors with PL2303 chipset as they are real RS232 convertors.

Thinking about this..... it would not make any sense to compile your own kernel anyway as you are depending on the kernel video code? Right??

Does a phone has IO pins available you can use? If you succeed, show us some photo's! Seems pretty exciting.

Re: Easy GPIO Hardware & Software

<r>You would expect that as this is a Broadcom chip (BCM2835), Broadcom would have some documentation about the GPIO lines and corresponding addresses (it could be that the Raspberry Pi does not use all of the available IO pins of course).<br/> If these IO addresses are known, you could do something...

Re: sdk?

What about header files that define the GPIO pins? If you want to make use of these GPIO pins in your C code, we would at least needs the definitions for the Raspberry Pi. Are these files released when the board becomes available (or documented)?
