£25 Raspberry Pi PC Sells Out in Minutes

Filed under
Hardware

Raspberry Pi – a £25 computer – went on sale this morning and sold out within minutes.

Although the device was made available to order today demand was so high that the initial run of boards sold out within minutes on one of the two British companies officially offering the Pi.

Buyers wishing to purchase a board from the other company – RS Components – are instead being asked to ‘express and interest’ for a heads-up on availability of the the Pi when they put it on sale at the end of week.

Linux 4.9-rc8

So if anybody has been following the git tree, it should come as no surprise that I ended up doing an rc8 after all: things haven't been bad, but it also hasn't been the complete quiet that would have made me go "no point in doing another week". Extra kudos to Arnd, who actually root-caused the incredibly annoying "modversions do not work with new versions of binutils", bisecting it to a particular change to symbol handling in binutils, and then adding a small one-liner patch to the kernel to work around the issue. We already had other workarounds in place, but it's always good to know exactly what in the tool chain changed to cause things like this.
