I was lucky to get a Raspberry Pi from the first batch and it arrived today. First thing I did was booting the Arch Linux ARM image (from the official page) and so far everything works great. Thanks to the guys that made this possible!
But I've noticed that that in the "/boot/config.txt" there's the entry "arm_freq=800" which seems odd, because the the Raspberry Pi is supposed to run at 700MHz. /proc/cpuinfo also states that the RP is running at nearly 800MHz, which means that the processor is overclocked:
- Code: Select all
Processor : ARMv6-compatible processor rev 7 (v6l)
BogoMIPS : 795.44
Features : swp half thumb fastmult vfp edsp java tls
CPU implementer : 0x41
CPU architecture: 7
CPU variant : 0x0
CPU part : 0xb76
CPU revision : 7
Hardware : BCM2708
Revision : 0000
Serial : 0000000047939b9a
Is this supposed to be this way, or is this a bug? I've read here that overclocking voids the warranty. Not sure whether this is true or not, but if it is then overclocking by default would really be a bad idea..
Edit: Okay, the specs for the config.txt file state that only overvolting voids the warranty.
