Yup, this is late to the party, but this might still be worth a read for folks who have never seen a Pyra prototype so far, and who may be inclined to hear some criticism (on the prototype, not the final version) as to what I liked and did not like as much...
Hi everyone, it's been a while. As promised I am back with a new version of Pandoralive (that includes all articles previously published) and since the domain name was lost it has now become GiantPockets.com. I have decided to not only focus on the Pyra from now on, but also competitor devices...
WeeChat is a well known ncurses-based IRC client for those who love CLI apps. I have noticed it was missing on the pandora so I compiled it. I find it faster than all other IRC clients we have out there, and personally I don't need any GUI to do stuff like IRC. I'd recommend you give it a go...
Here's an overview of my experiences with Slackware 14.1 on Pandora for the past few months, and my pretty good experience with it as the title suggests. I also included some of its shortcomings... but at least I hope this article convinces some of you to give it a go !

If you are not convinced, I'd suggest you have a look at some important milestones (software-wise) achieved in this year.
Let me know in case you think I am missing something important :)

This is a new take on the previous tutorial that was published by BAFelton a while ago - with updated instructions and some additional steps that were missing from his original instructions (around the end). Hopefully this should make it easier for everyone who wants to get Amiga emulation with...
Seeing that many people have had issues either right from the start or during the life of the pandora with their nubs (me included), I'd like to know if you can reassure us a little regarding the expected quality of the Pyra nubs.
1) will they be durable ?
2) any change to see the...
As it looks like the Pyra is going to be released in a not so distant future, I'd like to check with you and get your advice on what do with Pandoralive.
First, about the name:
1) Keep it Pandoralive even after the Pyra is out
2) Change it to a Pyra-compatible sounding name
I have been using the latest version of SteamOS for about a week now, and here's my impressions about what works and does not, so far. But overall, it's pretty positive:
I compiled the results of a few benchmarks done from a couple of different configurations - since Shadow of Mordor just came out on Linux a few days ago.
Unfortunately the gap between Linux and Windows is pretty big :(
They should hire Notaz or PtitSeb to do better ports :)...
We have seen the release of KOTOR 2, Shadow of Mordor, and the beta of Terraria, Skullgirls... and there's a lot more.

WHile the original news about DX11 is not from me, I was in touch with James Ramey from Codeweavers and we had a quick chat about a number of different topics such as:
- When DX11 support will land
- Porting to Linux
- Costs of Porting with WINE
- Steam Machines
- New APIs
Have a look if...
