Subject description: mit scheme
 

I've compiled mit scheme on my Pi. This took a long time (>24 hours) and I had some help from the mit-scheme devel mailing group.

Mit-scheme is my preferred implementation of Scheme, so I thought it was worth taking the time to build it.

You can download a tar.gz of the binaries here:
mit-scheme-9.1.1_ARM

Here's a couple of other Scheme implementations. Gambit is quite a nice, friendly one.
These are not .pets, I'm afraid. They are .tar.gz archives.
I compiled them on Arch, so if anyone wants to give them a whirl on SAP, I'd appreciate it.

Subject description: is it possible to run the BOINC manager
 

I am wondering if someone could run the BOINC manager from worldcommunitygrid.org, and run the project "Say No to Schistosoma". It would be the only current application that can be run on the rpi, due to the rpi's memory limitations. I wish to know if it is possible, and if it is, I would like any information you may gather from it. Specifically, I would like to know the cpu temperature, ram usage, and time it takes to run 1 work unit.

Because the ram usage will be high, you may need to load only the minimum amount of puppy into ram. Please add in your post if this is the case.

PostPosted: Tue 23 Oct 2012, 07:04    Post subject: Puppi on ArmV7 system  

Hi,

on all my computers I can decide for myself, which systems are to be installed. Even on 15 years old machines I am able to install Linux or Windows. I may with Linux choose the language and keyboard layout. I can install most of current programs.
Only with my state-of-the-art and latest computer from 2010 I am not able to install another system. I can rarely add any application. Inside there is a modern SSD with 16GB. I may add a sdcard with 32GB. Nevertheless I may use only 128MB in total for application programs. It is a kind of Linux system, which is forbidding to me many actions, because I don't have root rights. This is Android 1.6 without AndroidMarket. Although this computer was sold from the biggest computer manufacturer HP: model HP Compaq Airlife 100. From HP homepage there is not a bit to download and requests are not answered.
For frequently sold smartphones the vendors deliver updated android versions. Otherwise there exists a worldwide hacker network, which offers upgraded Android versions.
With my computer there exists neither nor, because it was sold rarely only in Spanish speaking countries.
The computer owns a Snapdragon cpu QSD8250 from Qualcomm with 1GHz (similar to ARM Cortex A8). This is an Armv7 cpu type.

It would be beautiful, if a Puppy would run with this hardware. Do I have a chance?

You know already but for those of us that don't
follow every move.

Today we have some really big news, which is going to mean a lot to many programmers in our community who have been asking about it ever since launch. This is one of those announcements that has been in the pipeline for quite some time, but we haven’t been able to talk about it until now.

As of right now, all of the VideoCore driver code which runs on the ARM is available under a FOSS license (3-Clause BSD to be precise). The source is available from our new userland repository on GitHub. If you’re not familiar with the status of open source drivers on ARM SoCs this announcement may not seem like such a big deal, but it does actually mean that the BCM2835 used in the Raspberry Pi is the first ARM-based multimedia SoC with fully-functional, vendor-provided (as opposed to partial, reverse engineered) fully open-source drivers, and that Broadcom is the first vendor to open their mobile GPU drivers up in this way. We at the Raspberry Pi Foundation hope to see others follow.

It's not Puppy ... although I have used Rox!

I have made an image of a very simple installation of Arch with Scratch and Python3 + Pygame ready installed.

If you haven't tried Arch, this may help you see what performance benefits this distribution offers.

Download the .zip of the image here:
arch.zip - google drive
or here:
arch.zip on dropbox

The sha1sum is:
a8a44c145eabd8682f70d1a1f79c2e246dbb0ead arch.img

There are some instructions in this file:
README.txt

I hope you find this useful!

@antiloquax,

I downloaded the zip => arch.img (sha1sum for the image was correct) for your minimal arch demo, and I must say it is FAST (I still think ARM Arch would provide the foundation for an excellent Puppy distro!), but I ran into a problem.

I added netsurf with "pacman -S netsurf", and it proceeded without error. But when I tried to run it from the command line I got "error while opening shared libraries: liblcms.so.1: cannot open shared object file:No such file or directory". I ran a "find" command which also could not find it.

I also tried "pacman -S liblcms.so.1" which gave me a "target not found".

What else do I need to do to get netsurf up and going?

Hi, thanks for trying it.
I think:
pacman -S lcms
Will do it .. I'll double check in a min.
To search the repo, you can type:
pacman -Ss search_string
So:
pacman -Ss lcms
Should tell you what is available.
Mark

EDIT: I think that will sort it. I have updated the README.

Thanks antiloquax,

That 'pacman -S lcms' did the trick !

I am posting this from R_Pi/Arch-ARM/Netsurf.
