Desperately trying to keep the thread on topic, has anyone in the world got opencpn
running on a Raspberry Pi yet??
I've been able to compile it in a QEMU ARM emulator, running the Raspberry PI Fedora distribution. Had issues with the emulators keyboard and mouse behavior that I decided not to fight.
My PI is supposed to ship next week, so I will definitely be trying to put OPENCPN
on it. I do have a feeling that it will run (or walk) on the PI, but that it will be too underpowered.
Latest thinking is using the PI as a sensor / nmea
bridge to something like MXMariner on an android device. Oh, and play movies on a HDTV at night ..
