Hi!

here is many ATARI ST emulators for linux based on SDL library. One of the best is Castaway 0.92. Can anyone make binary for Zaurus.
http://castaway.sourceforge.net/st.html
I saw only old 0.1 binary for zaurus

Kindly regards,

Konstantin.

hatari runs quite well on pdaxrom (much better than uae). There are unresolved issues with sync mouse but with usb mouse works ok. It shoud not be problem to compile it for cacko.

The castaway that's on sf.net is the original version, which is not very good. Someone ported it to Win CE, and enhanced it. The Win CE version has also been ported to Palm and GP32. It's considered one of the best emulators for those platforms. Unfortunately those enhancements have not been back-ported to the main source (yet).

If hatari could be made to work properly, it would be a better bet, it's nearly perfect.

I did port Castaway to the Zaurus a few years ago - it only worked in lo-res mode due to the small screen I had on my SL5500 at the time, and wasn't that fast, but it did work well enough to boot the GEM desktop and run a few games....
