Default Allwinner A10 might be better?

Dear all,

rasberry-pi ? Much as I love the idea of a computer for every child I don't like proprietary drivers.

I have ordered a Mele A1000 and it has open source drivers, and a SPDIF output.

My one has not come yet, but for around 80 Euro its not so much more expensive and has many extra connectors. The main issue I hear is the poor quality Ethernet hardware, and the too small RAM.

Regards

Owen

Do you think the Pi's CPU will be fast enough? (PII or PIII equiv. afair)

first sound tests done on my pi - IT SUCKS! Early sound drivers are very poor, 1 bit sampling sound - issue with clicking (probably driver related) that doesn't mean i'm giving up I just need to get some time to play - so busy atm. As a side note though hdmi output is great, and i put a build of RASPBMC on it to play with, very good considering its size XBMC media centre in a cigarette packet attached to NAS Ill update when I have the time to work on this a bit more.

Lousy onboard sound was something pretty expectable, wasn't it? ;-) Having USB this should be no problem.

I must say , that there is an Issue with USB Components on the Raspberry Pi, too.

I was trying several USB Hubs and Power Supplys ( even those, that are recommended) and can not get everything to work at the same time. (Network, Keyboard, USB Sound, Mouse).

Raspberry Pi is poor Hardware (even for Schools) because of the USB Problems.

Did you try an externally powered USB hub?

The network was some USB dongle, or the integrated ethernet interface? All of that would be quite a lot for a single USB port (bandwidth limits) considering it was most likely switched to USB1 due to the slow devices attached.

It was the ethernet Network; I have even built a special USB Wire (cut of the 5V Line) and used two Powersupplies one for the Hub, one for the Pi. No success.

I have spent hours to see the Pi booting.

The integrated ethernet interface is actually a USB to ethernet adapter. This has so far made the Raspberry Pi useless in my experiments with streaming Hi-Res and DSD-over-USB with mpd.
