On RISC OS-on-Linux project prepares live CD:

so is this a WINE kind of thing (run risc os apps on linux) or some sort of "use a linux kernel to boot risc os" vmware-esx kind of thing?

the "look and feel" name suggests its more like ROX (risc os theme for xwindows) and then QEMU is thrown in (allows non-x86 emulation) to totally confuse me!

should be an interesting project, especially as varpc isn't going to happen on linux.

Quick, download the source before they change their minds! ;-)

On Apple Mac VirtualRiscPC beta on sale:

Argh, just as I'd decided not to buy a PowerBook as they don't dual boot Linux very well, along comes a Mac VARPC! Back to the decision-making process for me.....

I wonder if it will work on my regular PC that runs MacOSX under VMWare, or hopefully a Linux version will come along soon (hehe, maybe even for the PPC-based PS3 that runs Linux).

I can't believe VA even wasted their time working on a PPC version. Pretty much all Mac users I know have already ditched their G4's (dunno anyone with a G5, they're all laptop people). I'd have thought the MacIntel version would be an easy enough rebuild, but porting to PPC, wow!

On File sharing Bit Torrent client ported to RISC OS:

are there going to be enough people wanting the risc os source to make p2p distribution worthwhile? leeching of a couple of guy's 256k upload adsl is going to be a bit painful compared to a nice 100mbit pipe from an ftp server.

bittorrent is seen as being automagically much faster than web/ftp by too many people, p2p is only as useful as the popularity of the files and the upload speed of the seeders.

On VirtualRPC for Mac OS X delayed:

I call bulls*** on that entire 2nd paragraph hEgelia!

Now I wonder if I can run this under my MacOSX VMware instance on my Linux box.....

  • A guide to overclocking Kinetic and StrongARM CPU cards
    Charlie Lane has compiled a package of notes and photos on overclocking various StrongARM processer cards, including Castle Kinetics, for RiscPCs. Overclocking is the process of ramping up the digital timing signals of the computer to force the processor to work faster. Charlie told us: "I thought it would be fun to investigate the possibilities of speeding up my Kinetic RiscPC - only to find suitable information on Kinetic cards was rather hard to come by so I set about working it out for myself." Note: Follow the instructions entirely at your own risk.
