The awesome site rasplay.org has posted a guide on how to recompile your Raspberry Pi’s kernel with your own custom image.
I am going to try this out with the PiMAME logo this weekend.
Have a good weekend everyone!
Happy Friday! Long week. This week at work I learned how to deploy a Django app to an old Solaris server (Read: spent way too much time reading the error log because of incompatible SPARC modules). It was good though, because now I know of some really good debugging methods and have more Apache experience.
Xin-Mo Dual Controller and PiMAME
One of the louder feature requests for PiMAME is getting the Xin-Mo Arcade Encoder modules working. A link to a guide on how to patch the kernel and making a new module for the Xin-Mo was posted to the PiMAME forums. My Pi has spent the last night compiling the new kernel, and it seems to have worked. I will be posting a beta version of PiMAME for users to test with this new kernel and that should get these Xin-Mo encoders working right!
Raspberry Pi Hub
Pimoroni is introducing a new powered hub for the Raspberry Pi. They are a good company, and do a LOT for the Raspberry Pi foundation, so when these get a US release, I’ll be picking one up.
Raspberry Pi Geek Magazine
A few posts ago I mentioned that Linux New Media had published a Raspberry Pi Handbook and included a little blurb about PiMAME (yay!). They just announced that they are publishing a bimonthly magazine dedicated solely to the Raspberry Pi. The name could use some work, but I’m going to give it a chance. It’s called the Raspberry Pi Geek. Use code RPGOTHR10 to get 10% off.
I don’t have a problem, I can stop collecting these any time…
Have a good weekend all!
