    Slackware for Pandora 14.0

    Want to hear something weird? Whenever I boot into SL4P 14-1-4, the memory card in my right slot gets wiped of all data. I presume this isn't affecting lots of folks, as I probably would have heard about it. What would you need to me to run to help diagnose this, Linux-SWAT? I installed SL4P...

    Reunited at last.

    Sure that's mine? I'm pretty sure I shipped it in June, unless something went really weird. But I guess you can check it with the serial number :)

    Reunited at last.

    Hi all, I pre-ordered a Pandora from Craig's shop way back in 2010 (I was fairly late to the game) and, after springing for a queue-upgrade during the summer of 2012, received my Rebirth-edition Pandora in Autumn. However, in May of this year my LCD cable went dodgy and I got the purple tint...

    Slackware for Pandora 14.0

    Hey, Linux-SWAT, do you get many issues running PNDs on SL4P? See here (and the next few posts) for my issues trying to run Dune Dynasty: http://boards.openpandora.org/index.php/topic/12687-dune-dynasty-classic-dune-2-modern-controls/?p=239724 I also found that I had to manually grab and...

    Release Dune Dynasty - Classic Dune 2. Modern Controls.

    I've just booted into SuperZaxxon and it works like a dream. It's a lot nicer to play than OpenDUNE, and so far hasn't crashed like OpenDUNE did to me :P My only criticism is the tiny in-game fonts. Thanks a lot for the port. What I'm going to do now is to reflash my SL4P to the latest...

    Release Dune Dynasty - Classic Dune 2. Modern Controls.

    If I rename my appdata/dunedynasty/data folder to data2, then runscript.sh runs a few additional commands, all of which still segfault (including tar, zenity and touch). I've also noticed that there's definitely no appdata/dunedynasty/dunedynasty.cfg file. Is it possible that, for some reason...

    Release Dune Dynasty - Classic Dune 2. Modern Controls.

    Is anyone else running this on SL4P? I'm not able to run the pnd at all. Here is the pndrun_dunedynasty.out: ======================================================================================= PND : /media/Harry/pandora/menu/dunedynasty.pnd PND_FSTYPE : Squashfs APPDATADIR...

    Release Aquaria

    I absolutely love this game, and it's so great to see it on Pandora. However on my 600MHz Rebirth unit it's definitely too slow to be playable. Moving around in empty areas feels too "sludgy", and fights with multiple enemies are basically impossible. If there's any way you can optimise it, I...

    Slackware for Pandora 14.0

    I can confirm that this fix works. Thanks for the help and the super-quick response. You'd have thought I was paying for this level of service :)

    Slackware for Pandora 14.0

    Hey, Linux-SWAT.   First of all, Happy New Year! Thanks for SL4P, I installed a couple of days ago and it's been a blast. Anyway, I've been messing around with it and was wondering if I could ask your kind help with an issue I'm having. The wifi only toggles on once. By that I mean that if I...

    bluetooth - using GSM via mobile phone?

    Is there a speed or power consumption advantage to using Bluetooth to share a connection as opposed to using the android "mobile wi-fi hotspot" thing?

    This Thing Is All Kinds of Awesome

    RACE does turn up in my menu, however it's in a stupid place so maybe that's your issue. For whatever reason it's in Other > RACE!

    Crash/Freeze when charging, sometimes others times too.

    Ah, thought I was on 1.51 but I'm only on 1.5. The SD card install is 1.51 but's that clearly buggered for a different reason. Cheers guys, will reflash and report back.

    Crash/Freeze when charging, sometimes others times too.

    Just crashed again, I'm not sure it's anything to do with the charging. It's just annoying when it crashes with no input change whatsoever. EDIT: And it crashed again :P The only thing running was Vim in a terminal.

    Crash/Freeze when charging, sometimes others times too.

    Hi all, I tried searching for similar crashes but I've got different symptoms to the ones that I found. Basically, when I plug in my pandora to charge (I always leave it on/in low power mode, btw), it crashes just about every time. The crash takes the form of a complete freeze. The screen...
