Hy Koldo,

I asked one to, but I'm still waiting for the order invitation, and since I have no idea if I'm n° 10000 or 70000 .... I don't know when I will get one.

The boards I'm actually targeting for the moment are the following:



If some of you have some experience with these boards or at least the quality of their linux packed with the boards the info would help me in making my final choice.

Hello Wolfgang

Yes, now it does not work, but some hours before it worked.

It is strange: almost no info, some pictures of a card similar to Raspberri Pi and some screen views similar to a tablet (is it a card or a tablet?)-


Best regards
Iñaki

Wow, the 49$ thing looks nice!

But is Android the only OS planned?

FWIW. I got this just today.

My number came up.
I ordered it with most of the options, just to rule out any unnecessary
misadventures.
I have no idea what to do with it.
Strange that the Linux Fedora on a SD card is on back-order, hopefully
that will change before the promised 6-week delay to ship is reached.
It does not matter though, I have no use for the product with out the
software. It does seem strange that they don't simply post an ISO and
instructions.
<<Unless, of course, it really don't work as promised>>

If it turns out to be a hoax or other misadventure, it won't be my first
time on that trip!
I don't plan on investing much more time until I receive the product...
They must have about a half million dollars in orders accepted now.

Now that RPi is available, there are other alternatives. I just came across this
http://www.hardkernel.com/renewal_2011/products/prdt_info.ph p?g_code=G133999328931

I thought I'd share it here for those who like such gadgets.

Cheers

Looks good. Definitely better than the beagle Board, same price tag though.

The main and almost only attracting point of the rpi is its price for hardware ratio. The hardware by itself is more or less dead.
Currently no one offers so much for so little money.
Beagle Bone might be a comparable byt 3 times the price.
What about the goose berry?

[EDIT]
for my current home project (home automation with sensors, actors, interfaces, based on canopen, OSC, android, U++) the beaglebone will be the way to go. it is well equipped and sufficiently affordable. the raspberry isn't it, quite..
it'l be sorta

but less fancy and more functional Smile

To refill this thread Smile

parallell computing is coming. This one is a bomb i think.
imagine ultimate on it Smile (in fact, this would be in system development)

Hi,

Interresting Smile

You can also do supercomputers with Raspberry Pi. Explanations are here.

If anyone interested in emulating Raspberry PI on i386 and get their software development going without getting into GPIO programming can use QEMU to do just that. here is a tutorial how to emulate raspberry pi on Linux and Windows.

QEMU Emulating Raspberry Pi the easy way (Linux or Windows!)
http://xecdesign.com/qemu-emulating-raspberry-pi-the-easy-wa y/

QEMU Compiling for ARM (1176) emulation for Linux
http://xecdesign.com/compiling-qemu

raspbian image:
http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads

I have tried and doing it for a hobby project for someone at this moment. I got the wheezy-raspbian happily emulating on QEMU on a Linux Mint on my laptop. At this moment I am working to create a GUI with Tkinter+Python to process and display some real-time data. On real raspberry system these data will be coming in via GPIO pins from a car engine. Also will be looking into a way to see if u++ can be use to do the GUI, though interacting with GPIO will be a challenge along with cross compiler going as discussed on this thread. Thus at this point only concentrating on ready made setup (Tkinter+Python).

p.s. if you want to run QEMU on an OS inside VirtualBox, make sure you have mouse integration disabled on VirtualBox. Or else QEMU can't get the mouse working properly.


Regards,
navi
