Re: Looking for a mounting solution for RPi (in case)

I have used DIN rail mount Pi cases.
Maybe a Din Rail adapter?

Yep remote admin via SSH saves lots of hassle :)
Midnight Commander, Putty and Filezilla are my software tools.

Re: Android on Pi

apk files are just zip files with another name? I think Alpine Linux uses apks? While Android uses old Linux 3.? kernels the graphics output is different than Linux X11. If ARM Android apks can run on x86 Windows with Bluestacks it should be able to run on Pi4's. The answer is "Yes" in theory, "No "...

Re: Dual output for 3D stereo projection?

Bino uses OpenGL and has dual/multi screen options.
I will need to try it on my dual screens at work ;)
Might have to have a chat with the media labs guys around the place, this looks useful.

I was looking for VR software, this Bino might do it.

Re: Dual output for 3D stereo projection?

Are you using shutter glasses? I have programmed the General purpose clock output 0 on the older Pi's GPIO. If you use the HDMI clock as the source input, it might divide down and sync. With 4K the best will be 30Hz? That might be noticeable. You might have to wait for the new BCM2711 peripheral man...

Re: Think to install Ubuntu desktop os in raspberry pi 4

If/when Ubuntu ARM get ported to the Pi4 it will probably be at least 19.x not 18.x. You might need Linux Kernel 5+ and Mesa 19.2+. That is going to be newer releases, not old ones, unless someone knows how to back port. Generally it has been the Server version not the Desktop version on ARM. I thin...

Re: [How can i run a bash script on boot with Pi 4B /4GB]

My scripts wait until there is a valid IP address.
Then they send me an email so I know what it is.
It can take some time before the server on a network assigns it.
30 secs after booting is not unusual.

I suspect Gentoo is better and keeping things more recent than Debian/Raspbian but still. Yep, much better, Gentoo64 has RustC 1.37.0. Unlike Raspbian it stays current, GCC is 9.2. LLVM/clang 8.0.1.... I noticed when I first started using it Mesa/OpenGL was current and worked better than Raspbian. ...

Will those OpenGLES engines port to baremetal?
There looks to be bunch of stuff that could potentially be useful in baremetal?

Need to wait for netboot, it's not ready on Pi4's
You could practice with Pi3's.
uSD's are the next CDROM, easier to use on Pi's too.
Or USB stick, as there are more ports for them.

Debian builds are easier even if they are not up to date as much as Gentoo.
