Re: Ubuntu 18.04 ARM64 RPI 3 official image published

Will this also work for 3B+? Yes, it should work, although I can only test it on my normal Pi 3B (BCM2837). When I open the fat32 partition, there are amongst other files: system-boot/bcm2710-rpi-3-b.dtb system-boot/bcm2710-rpi-3-b-plus.dtb system-boot/bcm2837-rpi-3-b.dtb Well done, Ubuntu develope...

Re: RISC-V

a) Instruction set diversity is a disaster. That implies a plethora of incompatible systems and a lot of work building tools for them all and porting software around, etc. That is why the modern world only has two instruction sets: Intel on PC and server, ARM on mobile and embedded. Also the server...

Re: Raspberry pi 4 - x64 Processor ?

the answer is that x86, like it or not, is the standard Linux, and there are lots of software that is released as binary-only for x86. What could this x86 "binary-only" software be on Linux? I'm asking since I'm only using Linux machines (on ARM, x86, PPC, …) at my job and at home, and I'm really k...

Re: Raspbian Stretch VLC not working for second user

At least you need a Pi2 with ARM7 or a Pi3 with ARM8 to run ARM Ubuntu. P.S. And you won't have the OpenGL driver and other Raspbian-only bits, like har...

AFAIK Mate needs a 2B or later.
[Edit: Yes indeed.]

The Ubuntu Mate flavour also bundles a ready-to-run image for the Pi, using Raspbian's kernel plus some driver and Ubuntu's normal 32-Bit ARM7 packages from the Ubuntu server.

Re: How to speed up MAME from apt-repository?

I solved the problem. Here's the settings how to run MAME+MESS in a hardware accelerated window or in full-screen, so that many MAME programs run perfectly with 0 frame-skips, and more demanding ones skip some frames but are still well useable. MAME's speed doesn't depend on the window size anymore ...

Talking about Chromium: why is this browser so much faster on the Pi compared to Firefox v52 pre-Quantum on the Pi?

Do we already know when Firefox Quantum will come to Raspbian's repository?

(I am asking because Firefox Quantum is noticeably faster than pre-Quantum.)

How to speed up MAME+MESS from apt-repository?

MAME 0.182 with integrated MESS, from an up-to-date Raspbian 9.4 Stretch on a Pi3 with enabled OpenGL driver, runs basically. It skips several frames, depending on the emulated system and screen size.

Is there anything we can do in order to speed up MAME?
