Re: Camera module! (And a picture of JamesH)

that looks suspiciously like a webcam lens mount, so small ccd/cmos sensor basically. You could still use that M12 mount and the existing lens in an afocal imaging situation but as you've already mentioned James, it most definitely wouldn't be ideal. The M12 doesn't actually have to be used to hold ...

Isn't the problem here entirely the broadcom gpu? So looking at other targets won't help, the roku (or is it roku2?) is the only other target on the market that uses the same chip as the pi, don't think it's running android though so no use at all. btw. the android image for the mk802 is on the foru...

Re: USB - the Elephant in our Room

My webcam still doesn't work properly :( I know loads of astronomers that would be very happy if it did. You can do astronomy with a webcam? Or it's being used to detect if seeing conditions are worth driving out to some location, etc.? If you're willing to spend a bit, and still frames instead of ...

Re: pwc driver

I've shorted the polyfuses on my pi, the camera works plugged directly into the pi, moving a mouse is enough for the camera to stall at 160x120 and it doesn't display any resolution bigger than that.

Re: OpenGL limitations

Stellarium just requires that Qt4 is compiled with GL ES extentions, then when you're compiling stellarium, it needs a switch to tell it to use GL ES too. I haven't done this yet but it should work reasonably well.

The driver works, that's about all you can say, you can say it's stable on X86/A64 architectures and that bcm chip but that's about it :) You're quite possibly correct that the drivers are OK but not particularly on the pi, especially with the 'specialised' software that we're using and the out of s...

Actually, no :) That's not my point about the fire hazard, my point is that your milage may vary on the quality of the psu, it could be that poor quality that just through normal useage it's unsafe, I wouldn't like to see the same quality soldering and missing components that are on one of the hubs,...

Re: Don't but this USB hub

Then of course there is the power supply, your mileage will vary as to whether you got a decent 2amp psu or a fire hazard. Morning Reggie. Even a 2 A PSU is underpowered for a 7 port USB hub. There should be, according to the USB 2.0 Standard, 500 mA on each port - so a minimum of 3.5 A would be re...

Perhaps it needs a #ifdef around the includes for glext.h or gl2.h? or something slightly deeper.
