    Launching X11 Environment From Sd Card

    So is it necessary to recompile module (from official SDL release) responsible to drawing pixels or all library? At least X is not in official firmware, and it should interpret SDL window at its own rules. Yes, it is good to have pocket compiling possibility. Especially for someone who...

    I thought that you have implemented virtual screen already. Web browser which you have showed must use virtual screen. It was 640x480? But you are going to attach compiler and standard libraries to final system?

    I think that we should forget about swap on wiz. 4x6 font is too small (in my opinion), long reading in this size can be very exhausting. I prefer bigger font (6x10) with scrolling or switching the virtual screen. But in a good system, user should decide how big the font should be. Are 42M...

    This mess with swap really puts down the potential of this project on wiz. Wearing out NAND or SD through often writing is unacceptable. So I would use it for very small applications which don't use swap at all.

    Do you use faster NAND as a swap partition? So my vision is shattered now. I thought that NAND as a swap space will be quite fast, not as RAM but still "playable". But at least, terminal applications should work fine?

    How To Repair Directions Buttons

    Today I fixed it so quickly that I forgot take a picture. :) I used simple spring (coiled metal) from cheap pen, and some glue for plastic (not for membrane). I sticked conducting rubber (small dot with diameter about 1 mm) to pin on d-pad by the glue, then I mounted spring around pin (by the...

    Good to hear you again. :) Unfortunately I cannot use my wiz now comfortably because my directional d-pad doesn't work, and I had to took apart wiz: http://www.gp32x.de/board/index.php?/topic/58820-how-to-repair-directions-buttons/ I'm thinking how to fix it. Maybe you have some experience on...

    How To Repair Directions Buttons

    Hi, After about 1 year of using my wiz, d-pad on the left (directions buttons) start to act freaky. DOWN button reacts when I push DOWN-LEFT, UP button reacts when I push UP-LEFT, additionally RIGHT button gets sticky very often. *edit* I took apart my wiz and I see now that the peg...

    Launching X11 Environment From Sd Card

    At least cursor can be moved through directions buttons on wiz (if touchscreen is too complicated to implement). Good solution for virtual keyboard will be the most important part of user's input. I think that this should be extremely customizable by the user - decision which button activates...

    Launching X11 Environment From Sd Card

    What does it mean - '2x2 desktop idea'? I thought it should be simple to switching between virtual screen parts (through wiz button), for example: virtual 640x480: ## | ## <== one '##' part has 320x240 pixels physically displayed on wiz ## | ## <== I push L + down (for example) for...

    Launching X11 Environment From Sd Card

    Is there possibility for virtual 640x480 X screen or even 1024x768 (with scrolling/switching wiz screen)?
