I have been experimenting with sweets on a Raspberry pi running a
wheezy/sid clone (pisces) from www.raspbian.org
and written up my progress so far here:
According to top, CPU usage and Memory usage are fine and under control
The main cause of some heaviness *feels* like read-write to Journal,
and scrolling the F3 Home List view is a bit flaky, but generally the
graphics are quite snappy. This issue is not severe but requires a
more patience than usual.
I am using a class 4 SDHC card, if I can find a higher class I will try
Before I started I was aware of this: "Due to the 23644010 bug in
python-hippocanvas package, you need to be stuck to python2.6"
So I ran:
sudo ln -fs python2.6 /usr/bin/python && sudo sed -i
When I found the bug reported fixed, I undid it with
sudo ln -fs python2.7 /usr/bin/python && sudo sed -i
I have upgraded and dist-upgraded since, but I do not *know* if there
risk python is corrupted in some way that would hold back dependencies.
Some hold-backs have been seen in aptitude, but I have slowly worked
in without any other problems.
Top of the list of things to fix is a browser.
Surf.activity v.115 Reports, Failed to start.
ImportError: No module named webkit
Regarding webkit, these all exist,
Browse v.129 Reports, Failed to start.
ImportError: No module named gnome
I have been working through issues on the web, but with the workings of
python, it feels like I am running out of clues. Any general pointers
would be very much appreciated.
