 I ordered it from Farnell at the beginning of April, but registered for

 Will post somewhere about my multimedia experiences if I ever get that far.  
 Power required first.  Then patience.   On the plus side the boot time is

 How many months did you have to wait, Richard?

I got my Raspberry Pi a few days ago (at last! :) ), and have just got 
round to installing Rosegarden onto it. It does in fact load up, but 
opening files etc. takes ages (the loading percentage goes up one by 
one!). This may be because the graphics seems to be stuck on 'safe' 
mode, even when fast is checked in the settings (broadcom bug?!). So 
far, the only way to load files is to specify them from the command line 
- otherwise the Pi runs out of memory and exits abruptly. Once (and if) 
you have managed to load something, it does seem to output MIDI ok apart 
from some delays in volume signals (audio would probably crash), but due 
to speed, editing files would probably be unusable. This is under Debian 
Wheezy, I'd imagine Raspbian may be slightly faster but haven't tested 
RG on it yet.

[Rosegarden-user] Raspberry Pi

2012-07-01 Thread Richard Bown
I've just received my raspberry Pi.  Anyone had any luck getting RG to run on 
it yet and any advice on distros?  I have a day or two to do some research as I 
find I've not got a micro USB connector anywhere to my slight surprise.

Cheers,
Richard

I would be very surprised if you could run something with Rosegarden's memory
and processor requirements on RasPi!

Oh, man!

I want a raspberry pi!  Actually, I want about 8 of them so I can make a 
beowulf cluster with them -- just because it would be cool.

I didn't think about using it for Rosegarden.  Hmmm...

Sincerely,
Julie S.
