sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdkThis took a while as it downloaded and installed all the required packages. I then grabbed the binary only copy of GATE's nightly build (while I wanted to run GATE I didn't want to try compiling it). Once downloaded I started up X to give me a graphical interface (the default distribution uses LXDE). From a terminal I then started GATE. The splash screen came up almost immediately, but then there was a bit of a wait while it built the developer interface. Once GATE had started I then loaded up a copy of ANNIE (the default information extraction pipeline). This was the point at which I then took the photo on the left. Now because Amazon seem to have mislaid a parcel I ordered, I'm stuck connecting the Raspberry Pi to my TV via a composite cable (I wanted to use a HDMI to DVI-D cable to attach to my nice monitor) and I can't get the screen to scale correctly. This means that the top and bottom are cut off slightly and it isn't filling the width. Anyway at least you can see GATE loaded and the Raspberry Pi resting on the box of chocolates on the floor.
I was intending to take some proper screenshots to show GATE working but unfortunately I couldn't figure out how (turns out that taking screenshots under LXDE is a slightly convoluted process), but here is a close up photo of the TV having done a small amount of information extraction.
I'm not sure what I'm going to try doing with the Raspberry Pi next so if anyone has anything they'd like to test let me know and I'll see what I can do.
