PiBang versus Raspbian

Raspbian, What's the difference? (Revised 7-17-2013) The major differences are the choice of desktop environment,the init system used, the default file manager, default shell, and our setup utility. Raspbian uses LXDE. PiBang uses the lighterweight Openbox Window Manager in conjunction with Tint2 as a panel and Nitrogen as a wallpaper handler. The second major difference is choice of init system. The third major difference is the software repositories. Raspberry Pi. Update: 14th May, 2013 wiringPi version 2 has been released and now has its own website ( to look after it.

The community developing around the hardware is what's making the RPi such a great thing for people like myself who are learning. Let me explain a bit of my setup.I have a RPi connected to my TV and over ethernet to my router (which in turn is also connected by ethernet to a NAS). I mostly want to run the RPi as a VPN server so that I can connect to my network whilst away, which I'll do on wheezy. But when at home I obviously won't need VPN and would like to use it as a media centre accessing music etc. on the NAS (hence OpenELEC).

Useful Controller Configuration Tips For a Raspberry Pi Retro Gaming Centre. While building my Raspberry Pi retro gaming centre I ran into some problems with configuring game controllers.

Useful Controller Configuration Tips For a Raspberry Pi Retro Gaming Centre

The challenges were straightforward. Would I use my Xbox 360 controller, or resort to a pair of basic USB controllers for two player gaming? Establishing a solution was difficult. In the end, despite my preferences, I opted to go for a pair of basic, retro-style game controllers which proved great for some classic two player arcade-style gaming. Although to be honest the majority of my RetroPie use has been to enjoy some classic strategy titles that I could just as easily load up in DOSBox on my PC.

rpix86 by Patrick Aalto

Here is the latest version of rpix86! Not a lot of changes, as I still have not had all that much time to work on rpix86, but there are a couple of changes that you might find useful. Changed the joystick event file handling to use /dev/input/js? Files. Note that before this version you needed to give the event file number using the -j parameter, now you need to give the js file number (which I believe always start with zero, so you would normally use -j0) to have rpix86 use your joystick.

This caused me to look for alternatives to the Raspberry Pi leading me to what is known as the Allwinner A10 chip. As you may have heard from Rhombus Tech, this is an Arm Soc which has great promise with the best price to performance ratio. Excited by the figures Rhombus Tech proposed, I realised that yet again, it would be a long time before I got my hands on their development board.

Currently, they don’t even have a prototype! At this point I had an idea, what if I could purchase just the board itself and use it just like the Pi. RetroPie Project: ¡Guía Definitiva!

As the Raspberry Pi doesn't have a conventional BIOS, the various system configuration parameters that would normally be kept and set using the BIOS are now stored in a text file named "config.txt". The Raspberry Pi config.txt file is read by the GPU before the ARM core is initialized. This file is an optional file on the boot partition. It would normally be accessible as /boot/config.txt from Linux, but from Windows (or OS X) it would be seen as a file in the accessible part of the card. PATOSS -
