Morning all,

Has anyone else tried the d.net client on a Raspberry Pi? For those who 
don't know what one of those is, it is a credit card sized ARM based linux 
box that you can get for under 30quid delivered here in the UK. It has a 
700MHz ARM CPU, 256MB of RAM, 2 USB ports, 10/100 ethernet and HMDI 
graphics and uses an SD card for storage.

Anyway, I've put dnetc on it and it's happily crunching away at the rc5-72 
project at around 770kkeys/s. Nothing special in terms of keyrate but it 
wasn't really designed for performance.

One interesting point to note is that from what I've read the RasPi has a 
very powerful GPU on it and I was wondering if someone a lot brighter than 
me has considered doing an rc5 core for it that makes full use of the GPU?
