Add space for storing games

Fri Feb 19, 2016 12:33 am

Hi all,

I was looking around for games to install and decided that I wanted to install Quake 3 on my RaspberryPi, however during the installation/setup, I would run in to the issue of not having enough space on the Pi.

This is the guide I was following: viewtopic.php?f=78&t=18853

Would this require me to format a USB Stick/ Hard Drive to the Pi in order to use it as a built in storage?

I tried just plugging in a USB stick and everything was fine until I did not have permission to do step: 4. (
Now you can begin the compilation process by typing ./build.sh
) Even as the root/sudo, I did not have permission to do so.

Thoughts and ideas are appreciated thanks!

Most Pi games are tiny in relation to the size of even the smallest of SD cards most people use with a Pi, and Quake 3 is no exception to this. Did you expand the filesystem after installing Raspbian? It's the first option in raspi-config.

I'd also be interested to know which model of Pi you have and if you're overclocking or not so we can compare compilation times. The Pi2B in my sig compiles Quake 3 in exactly 6mins and 32 secs. :)
Pi2B Mini-PC/Media Centre: ARM=1GHz (+3), Core=500MHz, v3d=500MHz, h264=333MHz, RAM=DDR2-1200 (+6/+4/+4+schmoo). Sandisk Ultra HC-I 32GB microSD card on '50=100' OCed slot (42MB/s read) running Raspbian/KODI16, Seagate 3.5" 1.5TB HDD mass storage.
