Because on the Pandora, Vulture was a very low compute yet fun Nethack game that would get ~12 hours of battery life while playing. So, we had the -then- equivalent running on the Pandora - and it was pretty darn awesome.
Why don't I just play the good old ASCII terminal based Nethack instead...
Okay, so I started digging into what it would take to get Vulture-Nethack-3.6.6 compiled to run on the Pyra. I have never compiled anything - but would like to learn the process.
Vulture is an isomorphic interface / overlay for Nethack. Although the source code is distributed freely on the...
Sounds like I didn't miss all that much then. I saw that the production shipments are going out in pretty boxes - I didn't know if there was a pretty manual to go with them. (Mine came in a cardboard box - with a nice laminated sheet.)
Regarding the phone bits, I'm more interested in the 4G...
Yeah - I did that. Are we all still on Buster or has everyone moved on to Bullseye?
Care to help bring me up to speed again?
Was the 3d driver ever brought into the mainline code?
Are we still using F2FS?
Anyone running off of a microSDXC on the internal slot these days?
Is the 4G fully...
I have been gone from this scene for longer than I care to admit. My current install on my prototype Pyra is pretty sideways - I was 'testing' a lot of weird things back then.
Is there a new/updated/easier bare metal install method/setup so I can get the OS set straight?
To clear up a bit of the above confusion.
MicroUSB - the standard/normal microUSB charging cable of which most of us likely have dozens lying around can plug into EITHER the microUSB/serial charging port OR the microUSB 3.0 "wide" port.
Think of the microUSB 3.0 "wide" port as a normal...
No, not really. Right now they are designing and building the process to build Pyras efficiently. Once they have the individual steps and process flow worked out and defined, then they can move much faster - maybe with more people. I.e. building the assembly line.
Pain might not be as serious as you might think. It depends a bit on what games you consider to be critical. I stopped buying any game that didn't run native on Linux many years ago. Steam on Linux eased that pain.
The Neo2 is a full-sized keys, 10 finger touch type, keyboard. It is optimized for touch typing.
The Pyra is a handheld device with a total width of approximately 6 standard touch type keyboard keys. It is optimized for thumb typing.
You might want to consider using the Pyra keyboard as...
Quite handy for controlling TVs. Think changing the channel and adjusting volume on work TVs mounted to the walls tuned to the 'official' channel, same thing in bars, etc.
IRDA, at least the send side of it, was a feature of my Galaxy Note II that I abused pretty much as needed.
I'm not going to provide links to fake cards. Just search Amazon for 1TB microSDXC. Any of the results that are not Sandisk cards and/or are being sold for under $150 are obvious fakes.
Likely genuine are the cards sold by Amazon. Example of a likely genuine (no guarantee on this) card...
It amazes me a bit how many obviously fake microSD and SD cards there are on Amazon - many with Prime free shipping where Amazon is shipping them from their own warehouse. Yes - they are someone else's stock not SOLD by Amazon, but shipped by Amazon. Of all the flaky crap that gets sold, this...
