Re: Low-level (Linux framebuffer) graphics programming tutor

Thanks for this - I've been looking for days for concise info on the framebuffer and only found disjointed discussion by people who already know what they're on about. :D What other information on the framebuffer can we siphon from you? Do you know how one might make a second framebuffer (fb1) for a...

DSi port, other things (possible accessories?)

Loving my model B, but there are some things I find myself wishing for (I do hope this is appropriate for this forum - apologies if not): 1) The DSI port... it would be lovely if, when the Foundation display and corresponding binary blob is released, the DSI port could also be used to support other ...

Re: Minecraft server - How To

It'll look like crap probably, but I'll have a cool accessory for my Pi (useful for Minecrafting, as at a glance I can tell whether the Pi is overstressed) and will hopefully be working a lot more with Pi in the future. :)

Re: Minecraft server - How To

Nice one! I am preoccupied, alas. Experimenting with GPIO - going to see if I can't convince work to use Raspberry Pi's as nifty little demo boards for our displays :D

I want to pipe some server info (CPU, disk, mem usage - possibly graphs and text) to a small graphic display as a working example. :)

Re: Minecraft server - How To

Wow, all I can say right now haha. Its lag free, like totally lag free. To a point where I can set 20 blocks of TNT off without getting [WARNING] Can't keep up! Did the system time change, or is the server overloaded? Seems that the core freq makes a HUGE difference. As well as the ram freq. Core f...

Re: Minecraft server - How To

UHS-1 100MB/s one myself! Awesome! Mines 'only' 75MB/s gets 30mb/s on a DD test. Think the pi is restricting it. Yeah it's undoubtedly the Pi. UHS is, if I recall, slightly different in terms of communication to 'normal' SDHC cards. These cards are backwards-compatible with the old protocols though...

Re: Minecraft server - How To

This is for the guy that just sent me a nasty email claiming this is not hosted on a raspberry pi! http://picraft.zapto.org/ What? No faith! :roll: They probably don't know about your 1.15GHz overclock... or the SD card :lol: I'm getting some fancy UHS-1 100MB/s one myself! I don't suppose the Pi c...

Re: Minecraft server - How To

Nice! Try this in your ServerStart.sh (assuming you're just at the terminal when launching, otherwise don't do this!):

Code: Select all

java -Xms128M -Xmx408M -jar ~/Server/ftbserver.jar nogui
This will make use of the remaining RAM in your Pi and might make things a little faster still! :)

Re: Minecraft server - How To

Interesting - what settings are you using (Xms, Xmx, Pi clockspeeds, SD card make & model?) I found out jamesmd95 is running his Minecraft server on a 256MB model A, and it runs great thanks to overclocking, tweaked settings, and a fast SD card. This is amazing considering the bump to 512MB of RAM m...

Re: Minecraft server - How To

must try this sometime looks good! also i seen your server.properties config try lowering the view distance down from 10 down to around 2-5 it will help! Anything less than 3 is invalid I believe! It will complain when you try to launch the server. But reducing it certainly helps! I think it helps ...

Re: Minecraft server - How To

When you says "your routers ip" is it the external ip address or internal? Thanks 8) After nano comes up on your screen, change "iface eth0 inet dhcp" to: iface eth0 inet static address (any free network ip, for example 192.168.1.4 - you'll have to check what IPs your router assigns to network devi...

Re: Minecraft server - How To

Ok, tentatively tried a few minutes (minutes, mind you) at stock 700MHz with the above settings. It takes longer to boot, and longer to start up the server, and longer to log in via a Minecraft client... ...but it seriously seems to run near perfectly, at least in terms of block placement/destructio...

Re: Minecraft server - How To

Thanks for this guide, OP. I got it fired up over the weekend, and began performance optimisations. Loving my little Minecraft server :D Currently it runs WITHOUT LAG (unless generating new chunks), though I'm still investigating what affects performance most dramatically. My settings include settin...

How would their release of a screen help?

Is it because they'll then release the binary blob?

Are we assuming the binary blob will allow us to drive other displays?

Re: What's the situation with DSi?

Thanks for the quick response! That's unfortunate. So there is little chance for a "universal" / widely compatible driver and we can't create our own... I suppose we don't have control over basic parameters either (like specifying resolution) for whatever driver does/will exist for DSI? I was hoping...

What's the situation with DSi?

Hi there - just wondering what the situation is with connector C5 and the DSI output functionality on the Pi? I'm curious about firing up a few displays via the DSI connector but I've heard that it is in some way not 'activated' at present (something about binary blobs... proprietary drivers?? Does ...
