For older OF releases with Wheezy or Jessie select the legacy driver instead.

Unlike Wheezy, Debian Jessie onwards does not display the IP address on boot. You may wish to get the current IP by typing `ifconfig`. The IP address is under the eth0 entry for wired ethernet. This can possibly change on reboot.

## Use EGL instead of GLFW
As of 0.11.0 the default window is ofAppGLFWWindow. If you want to use the older ofAppEGLWindow approach, comment out `USE_GLFW_WINDOW = 1` in `libs/openFrameworksCompiled/project/linuxarmv6l/`

## Speeding up compiling
Compiling natively on the Raspberry Pi takes a long time. openFrameworks applications typically take much less time than the core library. Taking the time to set up a cross-compiling solution will save you enormous amounts of time.
