Well if the GUI is more or less the same as a normal lightweight window manager running on X on top of the system like any other Linux box it would be fairly simple just to kill the window manager and just load the required libs for that specific app/game, unless you got a lot of stuff running this should just add a few seconds extra if even that.icurafu said:I have a question on memory usage.
I wanna be able to use the entire 128MB of RAM. How much ram will Qtopia consume and is there is option to dump the entire OS memory on full screen apps and then reload when the application is exited?
What would need to be done to dump the ram, do we need to detach from hardware. Can anyone estimate how long this would take? or how many seconds would be added to the execution of each of these high memory consuming applications?
Should Also be possible to "hide" the GUI and throw it to a swap of likewise freeing up most of the 128MB, this way you should really be able to use 97-98% of the RAM for the app with just X running behind it, if you don't need X then you should be able to use ~100% of it.
This under the assumption that Pandora will work as any other Linux system.
Qt for Embedded Linux (don't know much about it) has a
Storage footprint dependent on configuration
Compressed: 1.7 - 4.1 MB
Uncompressed: 3.6 - 9.0 MB
