Hey all! Just wanted to let you know that Raspberry Pies are flippin sweet!
I've gotten mine up and running with some c++ code, and it's mega fun! I've been learning nano and I haven't used a nicer programming environment! Some of the hotkeys are super weird, but it's nice to not need a mouse.
I'm currently working on a program that will take the output from g++ and try to auto correct the errors in my code =] then I'll make a program that makes simple programs! All I need is a battery and I have a fully mobile c++ development environment, one of my biggest dreams! Unfortunately I haven't been able to install any graphical libraries because of my lack of an internet connection and inability to connect it to the library's internet, but soon! Then I'm adding a couple buttons to the front using the GPIO and I'll have a sweet little gameboy/dev environment!
Are you all excited for yours? Are you getting one? I can't wait for minecraft! In addition the new store thing will be a sweet place to upload all of my games! Are you all planning on making anything on it?
What an exciting little device =] I'll let you know how everything progresses!
I got mine, and by a stroke of luck, the charger for my phone is perfect as a power supply for it (5 V d.c., 0.7 A). The OS dev thing isn't going so well though, it doesn't seem to want to load it. Ah well, I'll figure it out.
I had some updated Pumpkin Pie for Christmas Dinner today. It was pretty freakin sweet to, and just a hint cinnamony. I tried writing some C++ on it but it didn't compile. :( No errors either, I think I may need a new IDE for it.
Lol, okaay that may have been a stretch, but it's not bad at all!
Raspbian has vimtiny but it seemed to fail explosively on the pi... But c++ code runs great! Haven't had a chance to get OpenGL or SDL running yet, but soon we'll try out some of my old games! (awww yeah connect four ftw)
The little screen came in literally a day! The quality isn't bad, and it runs on relatively low power, all in all it's a pretty snazzy little setup. Without initial internet it is a rather dull experience though, all console programming- though I may toy around with the x environment until I get a chance to download some necessary libs.
On that note, anyone working on some awesome and efficient OpenGL ES games they want to port to the raspi?
I've been following that, but I can't get his code to work either. I wonder if it's because I'm using a microSD card with an adaptor rather than an actual SD card. I can't remember if Raspbian loads correctly or not, I don't think I tested it, actually.
