Embarassed That's an interesting point, Lobster, I hadn't thought of that! I don't know if there is any way to do that under qemu?? My video card has an HDMI out ... I wonder ...

Anyway ... I have set up a swap partition for my qemu pi to use, so that may speed up the compiling side of things.

Here's an archive with the ARM leafpad

Unfortunately, my monitor only supports VGA and DVI connections. Confused
I will look into the QEMU settings and see if it can emulate a HDMI connection.

Let me know if you get anywhere with this.
In the mean-time, I have compiled a couple more things.

Sure thing, you might want to PM Barry to let him know that you've compiled some apps for Arm, or maybe just create a reply in his blog.

The thing is; he's compiling his apps in Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, and you're compiling in Arch, so I hope there are no compatability conflicts.

Hi Tman, I've put a link to my ftp index on Barry's blog. I'll also PM him.

Hi Lobster,
I have tried using woof before and got very confused.


The Woof2 system only supports the Mele ARM device at present, so it is not yet applicable to Puppi.

Barry has updated the instructions

http://bkhome.org/fossil/woof2.cgi/wiki?name=Getting+Started+with+Woof

This is 01micko's tutorial:

Subject description: Not much done this week ...
 

I haven't done much RPi related stuff this week. For one thing, I've had problems with my internet at home (we live in a rural spot and I think we are connected to the web by a bit of wet string Twisted Evil ).
Also, I haven't managed to get the gtk+ development libraries etc installed in Arch that allow me to compile some more of the GTK based programs. I need to spend a bit more time finding out exactly what I need (Arch doesn't have "dev" packages in the way that other distros do ...).

I have managed to compile Vim - my editor of choice!
I've spent quite a lot of time trying to do some basic assembly code in qemu. So far I've had nothing but errors from "as". At some point I am going to have to post up what happens on the RPi forum and get some help. But I might also try compiling a C program and saving the output assembly code - that might shed some light on what I am doing wrong.

I have been able to order a Pi this week, but I still might have a 3 week wait, apparently. Rolling Eyes

Anyway, I am posting a picture of my build of Leafpad running on my qemu -Pi ...

After a lot of false starts, I've had a bit of success with an assembly program. It's just a little "hello world" type thing. But I think I now understand a little better what some of the parts of the code do.
Anyway, I'll post up a couple of pics. Smile
I'm really impressed that you can do this in a qemu emulation. It's re-assuring ...

Hi Guys, Fellow Raspberrians,

Tried QtonPi
http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads
Not my basket case (punnet) of fruitiness but some might find it qt [cute]

I tried combining the boot files from QtonPi to the img file created on Qemu by antiloquax. Need more knowledge and info on this boot procedure. It could be quite fiddly.

This is what I need compiled on Qemu, if anyone is up for it.
http://code.google.com/p/gtkdialog/

OK gonna put Arch back on my one reliable SD card. Then I can be sure that vala works - antiloquax again - many thanks. Smile

Here is an interlude:
What is a variable? In programming we learn the concept early. When dealing with new hardware, a newish changing programming language, one variable is required. A better brain. I am trading mine in for a sieve. Rolling Eyes

Another thing to get ready is a case for your pi . . . mine is still cluttering up the TV room.

Nice Puppy
Does it come in raspberry?

I'll have a look at gtkdialog.
My RPi has been dispatched! I hope it arrives today.

Don't bite the messenger. The tendency to bite the postman if he does not deliver is overwhelming. OK time to boot up into Rpi [I know it sounds like a taunt] but it ain't . . . you will have one soon enough . . .

Do post a pic or record your reaction. I was quite blasé and then I had the wrong power cable and it would not boot . . . but when it worked I went into geek dance mode (not a pretty sight). Smile

Good luck. Keep us posted!

Fingers crossed it'll be waiting for me when I get home from work!
I'm quite pleased today because the deputy Principal has told me they want me to teach some GCSE computer studies next year (I am an English teacher by trade). I'm also hoping the Principal will be getting a suite of RPis set up (I had a meeting with him a couple of weeks ago).

Raw JWM running on genuine Raspberry Pi hardware

The procedure:
http://puppylinux.org/wikka/PuppiArch

The good news (OK it is a dummy configuration nothing working yet)
is it is FAST. Cool

The next step is to populate it a little with progs and such . . .

Puppy Linux
Because we can!
