Personally I have been using an ARM chip most of the time.
However it is in an Ipad.

The Arm chip and specifically the Rpi board chip can be compiled with woof. So improvements to woof will improve the Rpi compilation.
However woof compilation has not been done for ARM for a while . . .

Cool

I thought the Official Crustacean had gone walkabout.

Hope you are OK.Lob....Chris.

Nice to hear from you, I've updated the Woof page http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Woof. But would guess some of it is out of date. Cool

I have been using my Ipad to engage in weird Buddhist practices . . . not using Puppy much at all . . . (I am using 5.3.3)

vicmz is doing a great job, and coolpup is as busy as ever Cool

What is the origin of the YinYana technique?

Reading on the Raspberry Pi blog all new model B Pi's will now come with 512mb of ram instead of 256mb.

We use any old rubbish . . .

YinYana

Might start looking at the rpi again . . . with a project in mind . . .
I am not going to compile the OS . . . Woof is for smarter dogs than me . . .
saw the recent guide . . . even so . . .

Just a quick question re implementation of Puppi -
I realise that you can buy cases for the Raspberry board and other similar ARM-based projects, but would it be feasible to mount it in a pre-existing case like a 2nd-hand Panel PC like the Aplex APC-3780T-15 (17" touchscreen) (e.g., http://www.thiim.com/TradePoint141/TradePoint/b2c/ui/catalog/Catalog.aspx?CategoryKey=828) ? Not having any experience with panel PC's I thought it might make an interesting FrankenPuppy. More trouble than its worth? Touchscreen capabilities not urgent, but would be fun to have I think,
Cheers.

It would be feasible if there was space inside the case as the Rpi is cool running

You need something with HDMI or DVI digital input.

I like the casters under the board. Good idea for a outside case Smile

The Parallella Computing Platform

To make parallel computing ubiquitous, developers need access to a platform that is affordable, open, and easy to use. The goal of the Parallella project is to provide such a platform! The Parallella platform will be built on the following principles:

Open Access: Absolutely no NDAs or special access needed! All architecture and SDK documents will be published on the web as soon as the Kickstarter project is funded.
Open Source: The Parallella platform will be based on free open source development tools and libraries. All board design files will be provided as open source once the Parallella boards are released.
Affordability: Hardware costs and SDK costs have always been a huge barrier to entry for developers looking to develop high performance applications. Our goal is to bring the Parallella high performance computer cost below $100, making it an affordable platform for all.

The Parallella platform is based on the Epiphany multicore chips developed by Adapteva over the last 4 years and field tested since May 2011. The Epiphany chips consists of a scalable array of simple RISC processors programmable in C/C++ connected together with a fast on chip network within a single shared memory architecture.

Just a 100 dollar bill to get one of these Wink

Don't worry so much. They hit $750K already, only around 10 hours after your article came out. Now the only thing to do would be wait, and also let others know about the opportunity to get one of these $99 boards.

Oh sugar.
Forgot about that. Yes indeed. There is a connection converter but quite pricey . . .

Rpi can connects to lcd, so maybe you could connect internally?

BTW thanks for the any old rubbish YinYana ; -)

Many thanks indeed guys for your input on the possibility of cobbling a Rasberry within a panel-PC "crust". A bit Pi in the sky perhaps - just wanted a cost-effective solution, in the event of winning a dead turkey in on-line auction of an "untested" panel PC. Probably should just hang onto my money for the time being,
Cheers

PostPosted: Sat 03 Nov 2012, 03:12    Post subject: 512mb RPi  

I couldn't resist buying a 512mb RPi. It arrived within (I think) 3 days.

I'm sorry I haven't been on here for a while. I have been busy with my day-job! Teaching 5 days a week this year kind of cuts into my forum time.

I haven't done any proper benchmarking or anything with the new model. It works very nicely though.

I'm not very clear on the best memory split to use? What do other people use (on either model) it would be nice to know.

I'm also glad to see that the overclocking options have gone mainstream - so much so that the Raspbian config script lets you choose overclock settings from a GUI.

I'm still using arch day to day ...
