Mmm, must try those SDL libs ...
I'm running r198, I thought that could be the problem. I'll check the SDL you refer to and will report here again.

BTW : can you run fullscreen when running outside X ?

In some countries, you may transfer money to a paypal account from a bank account via a regular wire transfer, without a credit card.
(I don't know if it's the case anywhere outside of america, it ain't possible in France for instance).

You can do that from all country supported when you use moneybookers.com, AFAIK. you do not need a credit card when using moneybookers : you just transfer money from your bank account to the moneybookers account.

EDIT: I think you can also send a bank check. In all case it may takes a few days to show up in your moneybookers account, the same way it would for a regular bank to bank transfer.

Hi zodttd,  I remember donating you 20USD just before you tell us that you stop working on the zaurus release. I must admit that i was quite disappointed !! As i had no news since then, maybe you can check if something came to you from rototo2000 (the 20 october 2006).

I'm very happy that you start again to work on psx for Z.

(sorry for the not so good english, i'm french!).

Those libs (from the beta3-feed nor the r198-feed) don't change anything.
I had them installed.
0.9-3 still quits with an "illegal instruction".    

No one else is trying this on r198 ?

bolbit: Oh my, I hope you got a nice thank you from me. If not, I apologize. I  really do appreciate it.  I didn't want to stop developing on the Zaurus but when Sharp was talking about discontinuing the Z and this board was getting a bit died up, I thought it was over. Needing some money, I sold that C1000.

Got another donation for $10 (thanks so much!). We're really close now.

Time to get some work done in preperation.

To Sharp, Zaurus was always a dictionary and nothing more. Their choice of OS was purely random and they knew nothing of the opensource community. I remember  someone saying that he spoke with a member of the Zaurus developer staff or something and that person said those things. there's a thread somewhere that has some info on this...i think it was kahm who posted it... anyways, the board will never die simply because there's nothing that can replace our Zaurii. I spent about six months prior to buying my C1000 searching for a perfect pocket computing solution. And i found nothing that can beat the Z in terms of form factor, battery life, software and especially price. As far as ZUG community goes, zodttd and hopefully exophase can breathe new life into this little community of ours by giving us some serious emulators. Now... my only wish is to see the merging of pdaXrom and Angstrom teams into one team with a single goal - the creation of the best possible OS for our  Zaurii...

the ZAUROS!!!      

ahem, right... gpsp cannot be run fullscreen yet. i asked exophase about this and if i understood correctly, he said that it runs in native gba resolution only.
zodttd, are you sure that the Z port of gpsp has an interpreter cpu core?

I run :
# xrandr -s 1 && gpsp
and gpsp launches fullscreen.

Dromede: There's a BVDD SDL version (the one I included with ZPSX awhile back) for pdaXrom and when used I believe it will scale the screen to fullsize automatically, even with gpSP. My guess is that the Z version is using the interpreter due to the performance not being as high as expected.

yes, and im using those very same libraries. i usually run gpsp outside X.  the gpsp gui indeed is fullscreen, but when you start the emulation the display gets smaller and centered and there are thick black borders around it. i'd put on a screenshot if there's a way of doing it in a console...

Ah yes, I know why it's giving that issue. I can fix that.

the ZAUROS!!!      

What a crappy name

Anyway, Angstrom and pdaXrom are really different. Different approach, different development model... and different product in the end. A bit of competition is a good thing if each project is making progress, sometimes picking some code from the other.

Well, IMHO

(And I do think they are both making progress).

What I would like would be a dual boot between the two roms

I saw a thread or two about that, and I'll probably try to look into it when I get my C3200

PS : Yai ! getting closer !! $55 more and here goes zottdt's Z ! Then there is still exophase... I know I'll need to wait a month to donate again, though

I don't think Exophase is actually interested in getting a Zaurus. I was misinformed. I asked him directly and he said he didn't want one. Not sure if he was serious though, or really gave it consideration.
