Re: USB 3 for file-system

Yes, I realise it won't be running at USB3 speed, but it was not too expensive and has good reviews, so I thought I'd give it a try.

A simple benchmark

I ran this command to do a very simple benchmark (from a console, not within X) time echo "scale=2000;4*a(1) | bc -l I wanted to test some of the overclocking options mentioned in Dom's post (see the link in the RPi main page about Raspbian).

Re: Web browsing speed on Raspberry Pi

Thanks for this. I am using Puppy and Arch at the moment - over-clocked to 850. I will probably "bite the bullet" and have a try at 1000ghz this weekend.

I have the same TP-Link dongle. I couldn't get it to work with Arch either. It does work perfectly with the new Puppy Alpha 3 release.No idea why!

Re: Powered hub requirements

I bought a Trust powered hub, but had problems.
This little kingston oneworks well though. I power the hub and then power the Pi from the hub. Works fine for a wifi-dongle and usb memory sticks. That's all I've tried so far (except kb / mouse ...)

USB 3 for file-system

Apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but I'd like to report good results using this USB3 memory stick to hold my file-system. I am running Arch and it works very nicely - and it's quick.

wifi dongles ath9k_htc

I have a couple of wifi dongles (TP Link) which use this module.
I haven't had any luck getting them to work with my Pi ... until now.
Working very well with the latest Puppy Linux alpha.

This is a simpler version of the code that was posted on Frambozenbier. It isn't really a complete game, but there is one invading Raspberry Pi and you can move the cannon with the left and right arrow keys and fire a laser with the "up" key. You might find some of the code useful. http://ubuntuone....

myshooter.py

Here's my spin on Liam Fraser's "PyShooter". It has sound and a little explosion image when you hit the Pi. You can download the whole thing as a tar.gz archive.
There might be some code in there that is useful to beginners. :oops:

This is a very simple little test game I wrote. It uses Sprites. The Ufo moves up and down and you can fire a shot using the right arrow key. That's it. But if you are a beginner (like me!) you might find it helpful and be able to use some of the code to make something more interesting. mark http://...

Re: Installing Linux

Just in case it's of any use to you, here's a link to RacyPy . To use this, you download the .iso and burn it to a cd. Then you can boot using the CD. You won't need to install anything (it just runs in ram - with the option to save your settings to disc). It's a complete Linux OS(based on Puppy) wi...

Re: Can't get Python to run with Pygame

Hi, Sorry, I've only just seen this! Glad to hear you got the bat and ball program working on your Pi. Just for the record, I use Python 3.1.4 with Pygame. Everything works, but I did have to compile it myself (I'm on Arch). There should be a more interesting Python / Pygame game in issue 4 (if I ca...

No, the MagPi isn't blocked, just my webhosting place.

Okay, I've put issue 3 on

Regarding mirrors, I have a (free) ftp hosting place. It probably won't deal with massive traffic, but I'm happy to use it to mirror the magazine.

Re: Compiler and program speed

Try Arch. It's much faster! Also, if you haven't already done so, you might want to move your file-system off the SD card onto a fast(er) USB drive and use that (you have to alter the command line txt file in the boot partition to use the usb as the root partition). I have a swap partition on my USB...

Re: pygame development

If you use the Debian release, pygame is already there.
If you use Arch, you can install it yourself quite easily.
Personally, I use Python 3.14 as that (AFAIK) is the most recent Python in which all of Pygame works.
I've had to compile that myself and then install Pygame. It's working nicely.
