Raspberry Pi – RISC assessment

browserJust a quick update about my RISC OS experience with the Raspberry Pi. So far I’ve got it connected to the internet and had a quick play around.

The browser that comes pre-installed is called Netsurf. It’s a nice, responsive little browser but is also a little limited. I couldn’t get any javascript to run but I don’t mind too much at the minute.

I installed Firefox through the Store app but found it to be very slow. That may be caused by the fact that I’ve only got the 256mb Pi but I did check the memory manager and it showed plenty of free RAM. Dunno.

LIRCOne thing I have managed to get installed is LIRC. I manually downloaded the package (can’t remember the link at the minute) and installed it to the SD card. There was a font problem initally but though playing around, I seem to have sorted it.

The Pi is now running IRC and I’m sat in the rather excellent #tymkrs chat room.

Now to see if I can find a VNC client…….
