Raspberry Pi


Got a Raspberry Pi (sponsored by Nokia through the QtonPi project, thanks!). Was pretty easy to get running. For starters I ported my 4kb demo “San Angeles Observation” to run on it. I used the VBO-enhanced code from Chromium source tree, so it runs much better than the original OpenGL ES port. :)

Here’s direct download link to runnable binary: Download .tar.gz – Tested to be runnable with the Raspbian wheezy distribution (2012-08-16 build).


Edit: As noted in the comments, if you can’t run it, try to change your memory split to 192/64 or 128/128 using raspi-config.

    works great :)
    i’ve had to change memory split ( 128mb ram / 128mb vram )

    Yes, after upgrading to newer raspbian build, I also noticed that the 240/16 or 224/32 memory splits don’t work. 192/64 and 128/128 should work fine!
