Re: Data Plotting without X

Yes, ajstarks library is fast in generating output but a little slow for animation. Great for presentation, though. I believe only the switching - and maybe regions - needs some work. He has hinted somewhere on this forum that may change in the future. There's another example here on the forum that ...

Just an update: I ran into a bug in gles20.pas (dependency on X) for which I summited a bug report to freepascal.org. I solved it internally, but hesitate to release any code in public, since these unofficially patched units tend to live their own lives and are hard to eradicate when released. So: p...

Re: Raspbian software release notes

Since Raspbian is under version control from GIT, it is pretty easy to generate a changes file with GIT based on the commit comments. Imho that's not silly, - power - users who absolutely definitely want to track the changes should have some GIT expertise in their skill set. For the majority of user...

Re: compiz on pi???

Since Compiz is relatively hard on even the most advanced videocards - in the sense that it is very expensive compared to alternatives - this is highly unlikely to improve your user experience. I suspect that because of that no attempts have been made to port it yet. It may be possible but will be m...

Well, you can install VLC, which afaik supports wma somewhat. But a better option would be to recode to for example mp3 on your pc, since wma is a proprietary microsoft format.

Re: How often does the Pi (Rasbian) update it's clock?

It synchronizes at internet connection time to possibly? cpu clock and uses a "fake" clock.. If you leave it on, try using a cron job to synchronize once a day or so. There must be a sync setting for that but I can't find it.
