People should keep their eyes and ears open

Rasberry Pi ...4000 per day are now manufactured.  200 thousand have been sold and delivered
and buy end 2012 they hope that figure to be a million.

Android 4 ICS is now ALSO available for Rasberry Pi (official release in about 3 weeks)....it's already running good....along with a total of other 12 different operating systems now available for the Pi

The new WHEEZY Debian release for Pi makes the board 40 percent faster.....web browsing has of course improved.

Android 4.0 means the Pi can now run Adobe Flash....which opens up many possibilities with the
Pi as a computer.

@cast-fish

Just curious why are you double posting? I think most of us can understand your marketing message reading once :(

I will be posting my first pi Core construction kit in the next few days.

Robert,

can you make available picore_rootfs.ext2 for download? It would speed up  starting with Qemu eliminating Debian download and image creation.

@cast-fish

1. There are reports that Android 4.0 and later are even more memory hungry, having trouble running on things with 512mb RAM. If it requires 1gb to be smooth, just consider how bad it would be to use with the Pi's 256mb.

2. Flash on the Pi? Even discounting the ram hog-nature, that's going to be a slideshow.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Sorry, I believe that would be a violation of the GPL. Distributing binaries without being generated from source. That is why I posted only the scripts to generate a working cut of Core on rpi.  I also stated that once the few Debian binaries are compiled from source then an image could be hosted.

Thanks, I see. I was not thinking on licensing in this content.

How can I help with that?

I mean, how do I setup a Qemu image to run and test TC for the Allwinner A10?

I want to help testing and making/compiling some extensions/applications.

Thanks!

I have been told that Qemu emulation is not possible for Allwinner.
If you find otherwise please share as that would make it so much easier.
My goal for Allwinner is to prototype to full X. Then community can help compile and test.
I already have much of Tiny Core's custom code compiled and ready. Stay tuned.

Ok Mr. Roberts!

I will try to build a generic ARM image, maybe it could be useful in the future.

Thanks!

Hello

Ok yes. Sometimes i double post by accident sorry.

Uh, my post isn't marketing and i don't have any angle on that. The post is
just to broaden what's kind of already known. 


As for flash on Android 4 with the Pi....i think it's about the Puffin browser
which supplies it in the cloud you see.

Anyway the above is just info.

Really hope you get some good outcome from porting TCL to ARM.

It could work good on those tiny sheeve style "plug computers" .


thanks

Vince.

I have a Kindle Touch (I <3 it!) and I'm good at  cross-compiling. I want to help this wonderful distro. Count on me too.

I have a Pi and am willing to test.

To be honest I won't be able to do much more than that, it's sad but I just can't find the time these days...
